Believe it ornot I landed on all fours. Just your everyday finish line table top double. Didnt really even get a whole lot of air. Put it this way,I just finished heat cycleing the v spec, and was on my 2nd tank of just putting around with burst hear and there..

I was breaking in my V SPEC guys. I had about 4 heat cycles through it, and then started doing some little burst here and there. The the shock tower broke. I did have some crashes, but not when it broke.

Also The top plate was broke last weak!

Well keep in mind that these are hop ups from extreme. i have put my stock towers back on. It was 65 yesterday when I broke the tower,and 58 when the top plate broke last weekend. Im starting to like the saying someone said over at truggyracers.com." A bent stock shock tower and you are still racing, but a broken carbon fiber shock tower and you are watching from the stands" not in exact words but close enough"

What did Xtreme say about this whole episode? I am presuming they will most certainly replace all the parts for you and then perhaps go back to the design stage and re-evaluate their thickness requirements and CF supplier.

Cold doesn't affect Carbon Fiber like it does plastic. Shouldn't matter how cold it is out side. Weak parts or poor design.
