Default Losi 8ight T Shock Towers

Hi,

I have a Losi 8ight T RTR and my shock towers are bent. I was wondering if any of you guys could make a suggestion on whether or not to get the ones for the race roller or just for the RTR? If I were to get better ones, which ones are the best, or best bang for the buck? Also, will the thickness of the towers pose a problem with the RTR setup, ie. the screws not being long enough?

I'm new to the hobby and new to this site! I've already learned alot here so thank you rcuniverse!

Regards,

Mak

The rtr towers are a bit flimsy.

I suggest the 'race roller' towers or Kingheadz towers.

Either one will get the job done.


Welcome to the club.

I would say just go on ebay and get the gold race roller towers. I got a new set for 12 bucks, I dont see them that cheap all the time but you can get them pretty regularly for 10 bucks a piece. Just do a search for 8ight-t tower and you'll see them.

X2...no point paying LHS prices when you could ebay them for 1/4 the price.

There were tons of awesome deals on race roller stuff (chassis, shock towers, shock caps, etc) on ebay lately. I picked up a bunch of stuff just because I could not pass up on the deals.
