I used the stock towers with braces for

Thurs: practice - 12-10pm
Fri: 2 qualifiers
Sat: 2 qualifiers

They held up VERY well. I took a full speed cartwheel down the straight ending up with a smash against a wood board and nothing happened.

Saturday night I switched over to the diggity towers which held up well for mains day.

I race practically at least once a week at Holeshot Raceway. This picture was from FZRC in Sarasota, a stop for the Jconcepts Super Cup Series.

I did that twice at Leisure last wed. Full speed. Probably 35+ mph. No breaks of any kind. On one my car must have cartwheeled about five feet off the ground and then took two or three more before hitting that board at end of the straight away. My durango front front arms would have been ripped off with the same crash. I didn't even pop a ball cup on the xb4. Car flipped over and kept going.

This car is way more durable than any of the other 4wd 1/10s out. Especially if you put the 4mm towers or upgrade kit on.

I'll also say that before I got the hybrid boost straightened out the car took many side hits against that board as well.

I'll say it's MUCH easier to drive than a b44.1 or .2. I just have to get my head out of my rear end and DRIVE the car.

I have not broken a thing yet (touch wood) on mine and have only ever run the car with the upgrade kit.

I did upgrade to metal gears in the diff but my choice but I do know other guys who stuck with the kit gears in the diff and have had no issue since the upgrade kit.
