Default Bent rear shock tower- Losi 8ight t

I noticed that my rear shock tower is starting to bend a little bit. What replacement would you guys recommend? I believe King's Head makes a good one,. right?

I would say the KHZ ones are the best. They are tough as nails and look very trick.

Performance??? what??? The KHZ has the exact same design as the stock one and is tougher. Just because it looks good makes it bling??? Trust me it would never be on my truck if it hurt performance in any way at all!!!

See same design as the stocker but stronger and probably lighter aswell. Looking good is just a side benefit.

I have been running both of the KHZ towers on my truck for over a year and they are solid as can be. Must have really smashed them to get em to bend.

Bend it back in a vice or with some channel locks. I wouldn't replace it unless it breaks.
