dirt guards just stop the dirt from sand blasting the polished shock shafts all to hell..and they look like trick...

carbon shock towers are pretty tough...i never broke one on my RC8 and it landed upside down more then a few times...i imagine if you crash hard enough to break one, it would of bent a aluminum one anyways
