RPM is venturing further into the trail and crawler scene, which is good news since many machines could use the durability of RPM’s indestructible parts. These new shock hoops for the SCX10 are not just a stock replacement deal, instead they offer several mounting positions for the shocks to change shock angle and raise and lower the truck’s ride height. The stock screws secure them to the chassis and upper and lower wings wrap around the chassis for increased strength. The system also includes stronger body mount for those tough roll over and body landings. I’m going to be scoring a set of these for my truck and I can’t wait to see what the guys come up with next.

RPM front and rear Shock Hoops and Body Mounts for the Axial SCX10 are an affordable alternative to stock that improve durability and increase suspension options. Our versions incorporate stock shock mount locations along with two upper and two lower shock mounts (for a total of 7 shock mount options) that raise or lower the suspension just over 5mm (.205”). Simply moving the upper shock mount to one of these locations via one screw per shock makes ride height changes simple, cheap and very effective.
RPM Shock Hoops use a unique frame mount that wraps both above and below the frame rails to help reduce the amount of impact forces transferred through the mounting screw’s threads. Our C-clamp style mounts also improve structural rigidity of the shock mount for more accurate and precise suspension set-ups.
As a bonus, the included Body Posts are more stout and stronger than stock plus they bolt to RPM Shock Hoops using two screws for a secure body post that won’t rattle around. With a fixed set of body posts, your scale rig will look even more realistic since the body won’t be shifting around while you’re climbing and crawling.
RPM Shock Hoops and Body Mounts are a lightweight alternative and built from our bulletproof blend of engineering grade nylons for unsurpassed performance at an unbeatable price!
Tech Notes: RPM Shock Hoops will not work with stock body posts. Included body posts must be used. RPM Shock Hoops & Body Mounts are tested and guaranteed to fit with stock Axial #AX30502 frame rails only and replace #AX80025 Shock Hoops & #AX80031 Body Posts.
