Team Associated TC7.1 FT PSD Shock System & fiber graphite bumper brace


Team Associated have introduced new Factory Team PSD Shock System for the TC7.1 touring car. The PSD (Position Sensitive Damping) Shock System add progressive damping to small shocks. The PSD’s progressive damping is determined by the piston’s position in the shock body — the more the shock is compressed, the more damping, giving the shocks a plusher feel. The secret lies in the tapered slots in the sleeves. As the piston passes through the narrower slot openings, more pack is achieved.


  • Pistons (included) have no holes, so damping is controlled as the shock fluid passes through the sleeves’ tapered slots.
  • Normal assembly has narrow point of sleeve slots at top (as shown in photo above) to increase the damping rate as the shock compresses
  • Typically used on asphalt to give more responsive steering (narrow point of sleeve at top)
  • Used in TC7.1 small shock bodies
