...ok i will do the office work on this one ;) Click the link to get to badhorsie.com (http://www.badhorsie.com/)...

...OR read this about their boots...

"Although our Shock Covers may look cool we can assure you that this is not their reason of origin. We have been using them for years due to the simplicity of minimizing shock rebuilds. As most avid RCer's see the need to rebuild their shocks for maximum handling performance, we have yet to meet anyone who enjoys doing it, particularly on an eight-shock RC Monster Truck. As with any scale of vehicle, shocks make all the performance difference in the world, with the power-to-weight-ratio's we have these day's if you can't put it to the ground and keep it there, what's the point? Because of this very reason, we pay just as much attention to our shocks and suspension as we do our nitro content or battery conditions."

...There IS more but you have to go and read it ;)
