This is the ProTek R/C "TruTorque" Shock Shaft Pliers. No one wants to spend money on low quality tools. Tools are an investment that should not be taken lightly and are one of the few items that should outlast the life of the model you are working on...and remain with you for years after. With so many choices available, the decision can be overwhelming. So ProTek R/C has stepped up again, expanding its product line with a complete range of affordable, high quality tools that help to make the decision a little easier.
The ProTek R/C “TruTorque” Shock Shaft Pliers are for use with 1/10 and 1/8 scale shocks and are made from lightweight aluminum material and finished with a silky black anodize. The pliers feature a “nutcracker” style construction which eliminates any hard or sharp edges that could potentially cause damage. This style also provides increased leverage while providing the user with a direct feel for the amount of pressure being applied.
The ProTek R/C “TruTorque” Shock Shaft Pliers aren’t only for shock shafts; the pliers feature the ability to also capture shock bodies! Just secure your 1/10 or 1/8 scale shock body into the pliers and tighten down the shock cap. No more shock building headaches or slippery shock fluid ruining your grip. As a bonus, the pliers also feature the ability to pop the shock end pillow ball in and out of place thanks to the ingenious stepped post built into the pliers. The stepped post fits 1/10 and 1/8 scale ball sizes.
