I got an email last night that they shipped from Tower. I only ordered one set though

Do they come with all the needed hardware to mount them?

So are they doin anything to make the towers stronger, or just rake in the cash from sales.
I thought i read somewhere that the point of there mounts was that they wont break.

troll level ..beginner

If you're serious right now? IF you broke one.. it was deserved..back down on the motor and learn to drive if it's an issue with breaking the tower. All parts break and it's better to break a $7 part vs $30 carbon part..I have cart wheeled this thing plenty of times and nothing broke.

Btw...

*doing...*their..

I'm not sure if you're serious or not. Type "D413 tower" into the big search box at the top of the amain screen then hit enter.

My opinion is that the braces don't need to be stronger. I think they're fine just the way they are.

their is no clear cut way of breaking this tower. i broke the support tower on a friends car way before i got my own D413. when i got mine i had extra towers knowing that i would more than likely break one...nope i broke the front CF tower before i broke the support. go figure...

Here's crazy, I've broken 2 Carbon towers but never a mount. Takes skill.
Once got under the table top (wooden, indoor) and another getting hit head on in the air by another buggy crossing lanes.

Now that's expensive. Makes $7 bucks seem cheap.
