My voltage hobbies shock towers are way stronger than stock. If I end up needing one it will be the least of my worries.

A little bit of heat before fixing will help on not messing up the metal qualities

how far are you from the border?
Just north of Toronto. Buffalo is our closest cousin (1.5 hrs), and I stopped driving there for a deal about 20 years ago. I'm just bellyaching about the dollars because I like to shop online. I have no less than 7 hobby shops within a 50km radius. I just end up buying way more s#!t than I need, whenever I walk into one. Hobby Hobby is a local place, that will order whatever I need, if it's not in stock. Free pick up in store, so no shipping. Only thing with them, is they never offer discounts or coupons like Amain and Tower. Guess I should be thankful, as many of the members have to go to great lengths when they need parts.
