After quite a bit of teasing, JConcepts finally releases official details and pricing on their B5, B5M and T5M Aluminum Shock Upgrades! The aluminum cap is precision machined with angular bleed hole for correct building procedure and maintenance. The cap features weight reducing holes positioned about the center to reduce weight and add to the popular styling. Feel the precision of the machined threads and knurling during on and off assembly and a smooth transition while the cap seals over the standard shock body o-ring. The new caps are available in blue or black anodizing and include the etched JC logo for identification.
Adding to shock luster and performance, the JConcepts shock collar has a knurled exterior for extra grip and making quick adjustments. A notch has been added for location and identifying a track-side ride height change. The precise collar accepts the same inner o-ring as the kit standard and with a tiny drop of oil on the o-ring and is easily adjustable from any position. These nifty parts are available in blue or black anodizing and include the etched JC logo for identification.
JConcepts adds ease of use and a grippy touch to the shock bottom end cap. The new part fits the bill for racers wanting a little extra grip during the closure of shock rebuilds and finishing off the look of a glamorous car build. The blue or black anodized piece fits nicely on the latest Team Associated shocks and has the JConcepts.net etched logo for authenticity.
The spring cup is a finishing touch when it comes to a complete shock build for spring concentricity. The JConcepts spring cups are a 5mm off-set which is the most popular setting on the B5M |T5M and SC5M. The aluminum material in either blue or black anodizing provides a healthy footing for the hot new spring of choice or the trusty stock AE spring set. The cups feature a unique shock shaft path which helps lock the spring cup in position during hard crashes or collisions. Etched with off-set identification and JConcepts.net logo the new spring cups are top notch replacements.
