So I got sick of cleaning out my rear dogbones on my Talion of grass, weeds and mud and decided I would do something about it. I don't remember where i read about it but I found that you can take the De racing mudguards for the Associated RC8T and install them on the Talion. So I decided to do just that.

De Racing Mudguards

I'll try and upload some pictures of the install later.

Your rig looks nice @Kyzane. The mud guards look like they'll help a lot with keeping stuff from getting caught on the driveshafts.

I ended but making my own out of some scrap plastic I had, those look a whole lot better. Might be something worth replacing mine with.

I take it these mud guards would work on the Kraton? What's the install like? I don't see any screws that come with the packaging.
They come with clips and screws for clipping to the lower arm. I drilled a hole added a screw in the middle because the clips seemed a bit flimsy.

I felt like they were flimsy also. but so far they have held up, no problems with mine yet.

Fazon, Talion,
These are getting delivered as i type this. I bought the set without the diff protector to see how they run. If all goes well i plan on buying the diff protector as well.
Look at this on eBay http://www.ebay.com/itm/332191166343

They're on! Must say I'm impressed. Didnt think they would be thick enough. Fitment is dead on. Ordering the diff guard.20170429_163857.jpg 20170429_163849.jpg 20170429_164434.jpg 20170429_164440.jpg 20170429_164444.jpg 20170429_164542.jpg 20170429_164557.jpg 20170429_165054.jpg

And here are the pictures of the finished Install. Don't mind the dirt I might have been driving it in the rain the other day.

Kyzane, thanks for the post I just recently have my talion delivered. Now I can order my mud flaps and work on it before my trip this June. A little busy at work and I can only learn from this forum so most applications will be sooner. Question , do you know any mud guard fitment that I can get or any site I can look for my son's granite mega? I made my own through a set of used gift cards, it works for a while but it gets cracked after a few runs. Any suggestion is much appreciated . Thanks!

I fitted the DE Racing guards and while I like the look, the fitment (2x clips that fit onto the rear A-Arms) left a lot to be desired - If you tighten them down, so that they fit snugly, they deform.

It's not a big deal but you have to measure and drill holes into them to allow you to use the sway bar bolts and A-Arm blank holes to secure them to the arms.

Sensible mod, IME - Great heads up @Kyzane.
