RPM introduce the rear bumper and mud flaps and number plate kit for Losi’s Ten-SCTE truck. Available separately the redesigned rear bumper adds protection to the bodyshell by being relocated compared to the stock part. Added material around the screw holes make for a more rigid bumper. The mud flaps and number plate kit is an accessory item that adds a scale look to the truck. The mounting holes of the mud flap support arms place the mud flaps at an angled 15 degree, mimicking a few renegade full-sized short course trucks currently in popular racing series. Both the rear bumper as well as the mud flaps and number plate kit are sold separately and come with mounting hardware and instructions.
RPM have announced that their most popular wheel, the Revolver, is now available in a Short Course version (2.2” – 3.0”). RPM Revolver Short Course wheels are built tough, look great and have an all-new drive system that is built to withstand some serious power. The RPM ‘Spline Drive’ system is radically different than the standard hex drive. A hex is easy to machine and easy to manufacture, which is why it is so commonly used. However, splines are tougher and stronger, which is why they’re used in full-sized driveline components. Additionally, our Spline Drive has almost twice the amount of drive surface area versus a standard 12mm hex adapter and over 2.5 times the thickness at the most critical drive point of the adapter, the point that, if it fails, a standard hex adapter will spin. RPM Revolver Short Course wheels are sold in pairs, spline drive adapters are included in each package, available in black or chrome and backed by their industry-leading breakage warranty for unsurpassed strength and durability.
RPM have produced An A-arm design for the Associated SC10 4×4 that can handle the roughest and toughest abuse and still come back for more. Since strength and durability were primary design considerations, they focused on common breakage areas for strength upgrades. Hinge pin and cross holes such as shock mounts and anti-sway bar holes have been beefed up for some much-needed muscle. The structure of the A-arms is also dramatically different than the stock design, which not only helps with the strength and sturdiness of the overall design, it also helps contribute to a stronger, less flexible design than the stock A-arms. All this strength and at a weight that is virtually identical to stock Associated A-arms.
RPM have released their shock shaft guards for Associated 1/10th scale shocks. A simple design, they replace your stock shock spring cup with one that has a thin but tough shield rising up to the base of the shock body, completely blocking debris from striking the shock shaft. The back and sides are open, which prevents debris from building inside the guard as well. The kit comes with replacement oversized shock rod ends, improving durability and consistency on the shock pivot ball. Additionally, we redesigned the top of the rod end so it is square. That square end keys the shock shaft guard for directional control. The front shield of the guard covers over 100 degrees of frontal exposure. Available in black and blue, they work with the SC10, T4, B4, GT2 but not with the SC10 4×4 shocks.
RPM Shock Shaft Guards are a simple design, replacing your stock shock spring cup with one that has a thin but tough shield rising up to the base of the shock body, completely blocking debris from striking the shock shaft. The back and sides are open, which prevents debris from building inside the guard as well. The kit comes with replacement oversized shock rod ends, improving durability and consistency on the shock pivot ball. Additionally, they redesigned the top of the rod end so it is square. That square end keys the shock shaft guard for directional control. The front shield of the guard covers over 100 degrees of frontal exposure. These guards are zero friction protection devices, meaning the guard never touches the working elements of the shock. Sold in sets of four they will fit the Slash 2wd and Slash 4×4 as well as other Traxxas vehickles. Available in Black, Blue and Dyeable White materials.
RPM front and rear A-arms for the Associated SC8 & RC8B are tough as nails and designed to take some serious punishment. Every aspect of the design on these arms is there to either improve strength or durability. Additionally, they’ve cleared the A-arms in areas known to rub on the stock A-arms, allowing extra droop for more suspension travel over rough terrain or big jumps. Both sets of arms feature molded-in shock mounts which means no more lost screws or extra weight from those screws on the arms. To help reduce slop in the suspension, they discarded the stock shock mount pin and setscrew in favor of a new 5-40 screw, which eliminates .004” of slop in the pivot and improves suspension accuracy. Leading and trailing 30-degree edges on the a-arms help the vehicle transition up and over objects too tall for the suspension to clear and, as a side benefit, those angles improve suspension aerodynamics.
The goals for the new RPM front shock tower for the Associated SC10, T4 & GT2 were to improve strength and durability, improve crash survivability and help reduce damage to other vital components. The T-shaped structure of the front shock tower provides some serious strength and rigidity while the top-secret blend of materials we use provides unmatched durability. Although the SC10, T4 & GT2 each have different requirements of the front shock tower, the RPM version integrates all those needs for unmatched support of the shocks on all three trucks while the redesigned front bumper mount base for the SC10 has been strengthened to sustain repeated impacts from the stock front bumper. All this performance and durability is wrapped up in a part that weighs slightly less than the stock piece it replaces.
RPM have produced these shock towers for the SC10 & T4 that are designed to improve the structure and durability of these awesome racing trucks. The I-beam shape found along the tops and sides of tower provide some serious strength and rigidity while the chemical make up of their proprietary blend of nylons provides unmatched durability. The end result is a new shock tower design that will rigidly support the rear shocks while allowing the part to survive under extreme crash situations. Additionally, the unique nature of the materials help reduce transferred impact energy into the fragile chassis and chassis components. By absorbing that impact energy instead of transferring it on, this shock tower will improve overall crash survivability of the truck. All this and not one gram is added to the weight of the vehicle.
