Clutch side protection?

So i purchased the Yosh case savers....but to me, it doesn't look like it will fully protect the case...I'm going to get the T-Rex no cut sliders, but it looks like the 'point' of the case sticks out pretty far...I was thinking about adding this one too...what are your thoughts?

Those are pretty, but if I was going to spend that kind of money, I would just buy replacement covers....

About the only way to protect them is to keep it from sliding on them, which means holding it off of them. I have the Motivation clutch slider and shogun case slider to hold it up.

I think the point here is missed, Most times when you go down the covers get trashed, a lot of times this means broken and ripped off exposing the engine internals to damage as well. So this degree of protection is to save the engine more than just to keep scratches off of a hundred dollar cover.
