Shock Bushings

Hi everyone. Im new here but use to post on the old b4 forums back in the day.

I came out with a product I have launched for AE shocks. Its a real shock bushing. The stock bushing has over .030 clearance between it and the shock shaft. This lets the shock shaft move side to side as the orings are left to do the job of guiding and holding the shaft. Secondly the bushing I have is very slick. This might not seam like a big deal but it really does make a difference on the track.

Site is www.factoryone-rc.com Sorry about my self promotion but just trying to start something.

Like your site by the way and will tell others about it!

Thanks for the good word! In stock and ready to ship! TLR added machined bushings to the 22.2 and they are pushing the fact. Add these to your AE Car and you have not only the advantage CNC machined bushings but they are made from a much superior material for the smoothest operation possible!

Sorry if I seemed rude with you on your first post. I didn't know at this time that you were a great guy :)
Its all cool... Didnt know where to post my thread... LOL Hope you like your shocks with the kits installed. Been big here of coarse. But word is spreading as more people try them. Some are not willing to tell others because they feel they have an advantage by keeping to themselves...LOL

How long do they actually last. I find when I race (dusty) dirt/dust gets inside the bushing, this results in a not as smooth shock. Or should I just rebuild them more? I just ran the car for 1 practice day..

I've been a customer since the beginning and while I don't have the original buggy I installed the kit in I have a truck that has the V1/2 bushings in them and they are going on a year. Every so often I replace the o-rings and its all good. With all of the stupid "needed" stuff I have bought this upgrade has made the most sense. It also has been the single biggest performance upgrade I've made to my AE rides.

The lower bushing takes the brunt of the grime and if run in extreme conditions will effect shock performance. The is true for all RC shocks by the way.

As for how long they last. That again is subject to many things. One of the AE guys here put a set through 9 months of racing.after chatting with him I told him it was time to install new. Again the lower bushing showed most of the wear. Every 6 months would be a good schedule for replacing the bushings.
