RPM Traxxas shock wrenches

RPM have introduced shock body and cap wrenches for the Traxxas line of 1/10th scale shocks. Molded from one of their secret blends of nylons, it makes them a perfect choice to keep those expensive aluminium shocks from getting scuffed up from metal tools. The Body Wrench slips effortlessly over the body of the shock while the hex of the shock body seats in an upper recess. The Cap Wrench then slips over the shock cap and with a simple twist of the wrist, the cap easily unscrews off of the shock body. No extra tools required and virtually no possibility of scuffing up or damaging the body or shock cap. RPM Shock Body and Cap Wrenches are designed for use on most 1/10th scale Traxxas shocks including the aluminium ‘Big Bore’ versions. However, they will not work with Traxxas Revo or Jato shocks.
