With the chance of snow Sunday in my area, (some of you are already getting snow) I thought I would make some rear flaps or my Typhon. I hade this scrap plastic in my toolbox so I put it to use. I first made a cardboard template and made it fit without any clearance issues, then mad the actual things They extend into the wheel to protect the dogbones and bearings and almost to the end of the lower swingarm pivot point. Here are some pics with the chassis compressed, fully extended then with the body on. I used the existing holes in the swingarms to mount them and drilled another hole in the flaps for access to the one screw you see it the pictures.

Thank You. Well, they'll work fine even though they're not that pretty.
I made a pair of these for my Outcast before these.

I'm sure they'll get dirty, but looks like a good spot for some decals too!!!
Nice idea, good place for my FastEddyBearings stickers!
