Very nice looking towers, great work.
Iā€™ve made quite a few carbon tower sets. Some out of 5mm some 6mm. For bashing I leave a lot of material in the centers, just enough to get the wing mount thru, no more and maybe a hole or two in the front. No need for any more weight savings, even the 6mm thick ones are lighter than stock. For a buggy you need protection from high speed roof slides. They can be worn right into the shock holes on one slide. Bend a piece of thin aluminum around the tops and drill a hole thru it. Other than that they have been solid. I have no doubt the 6mm are super strong, lighter (Iā€™ve weighed them) and far superior to stock.
