Very nice but how much weight does it add to a Baja?

I have seen it too many times you start out with a little alloy next thing you have a 30 pound baja. Weight is HP and more weight makes it easier to break. I only run alloy where it is 100% necessary and I have never had a problem with shock towers breaking. But for you bling guys nice looking shock towers.

Being I race mostly weight if very important.

to make the shock tower stronger is the first reason, aother is wanting to keep the car more steady when truns around

I know on these baja's,which I have one.They already have some hefty weight to them,But I also no that one of the first
thing that snap on them,are the shock towers an a-arms,so in my opinion,those are a must to upgrade,shock towers
with an aluminum...

as you know 2wd cars are drifting much when turns, this part just want to protect the shock absorbers, and try to keep the car more steady. [h=4][/h]
