Not the mount itself, that I am aware of, just the steering cranks and plates.

I have a ftw rear tower and diggy front tower I like the rear over cream because it doesn't have that top brace and the front just seems like it'll take abuse since is 4mm but a good size if it doesn't I'm sure its gonna add some downforce

Why are most people switching out the towers? Will additional stiffness in the front from a CF tower provide more rigid or accurate steering response?

They certainly look cool!

IMO...i run carbon rear tower it stiffens it up nicely so i can run low rate springs and light shock oils...i run stock front tower because i feel that its more forgiving and can take a big hit versus a carbon front tower that will take the hit and distribute the force through another weaker part in the front end...just my opnion.

You can always PM me on here or on oOple, I go on both sites several times a day. If fact I think I live on oOple half my life :-)


BTW the brace on the rear tower is there to give it lateral strength. I've see quite a few low sweeping versions crack on the longer sweeping arms. Not knocking other products just point out the reason for the brace.

I went to cf because now my only parts that will probably be able to break are hubs and steering knuckles and arms , so it cuts down on spares

Can I buy just the camber mounts and do you have a US distributor?

Post your current set up, it will be much easier to help, there is no 1 right answer to that question.

His stuff is available through Tresrey USA. I think only the carbon tower part is available seperatly, not just the mounts. BTW the cream front tower looks super nice anodized black

since i went to taper pistons im at 1.2x4 f/r with 25wt ae f/r i have tons of grip and my buggy feels very responsive the springs i choose depended on my weight im at 1585g with a 10.5t no boost but it feels very light on the track almost enough to wheelie and geared up for the long straights i may have problems when warmer temps hit this summer tho... a stiffer front spring will make it more responsive also

I sell them separately for 15.00 the pair (full kit is 28.00). Plus the horrendous sighed for postage cost of 9.40.
Tresrey USA do have the full kits and replacement towers.
