You bring up a good point, part hoarding isn't helping the BO situation. I know a few guys with way more spares than necessary because they've heard somewhere on rctech that parts for "XYZ car" are hard to get so they end up with 5 spares on every part. I usually never carry more than 2 of the standard wear items.

I've broken one and I had to order it from somewhere obscure, paid $30usd with shipping for the last one, and my buggy was down for 3 + weeks. You better believe I'm buying 3 on Back Order.

I didnt mean to open a can of worms! I hate that you and ALL racers that actually BUY their parts, tires, cars, electrics, etc... get TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF! $30 FOR A front SHOCK TOWER MOUNT!!! They definitely have taken advantage of you! That is not right! Where are towers breaking? I see weak spot at the front bolts where there isnt much plastic there!

The two that I have seen break(one was mine and the other was a friends) break in the support area on the back, like they are brittle. However I have had worse crashes with my new tower and have had no issues.

I've got one in the mail from my back order at Tower. Once I saw that it was definitely coming this way I cancelled my back order with amain so someone else could have it.
