How is it holding up? Replaced my rear tower with a hot racing one and it bent as well
I just installed it yesterday and have not had a chance to bash quite yet. Will report back though. The Hot Racing aluminum parts are made with a lower quality CNC machined 6061 aluminum. That's why I went Voltage, even though they are more expensive. (not by much)

Bent my @Voltage Hobbies rear shock tower yesterday, I think it got jagged on the ground in a role over, but it's bent forward, so I'm not sure?

In some cases, having something that gives a bit is preferred over replacing the part/parts it bolts to. I know most buggies/trugges run alloy towers, but I never cared for that myself. Then again, what they are bolted too usually can withstand the hit better than the tower, so it's kind of a wash.

Not like running 2wd ST's or a t-maxx. Towers on those snap if you look at them funny.
