for traxxas i would say rpm products are about 30x stronger than stock plastic aluminum for theat stuff most of the time like integy but they will bend most likely. integy is more for looks and is pricey when a rpm towers is like 10 bucks

I use the aluminum from New Era, the other is the RPM Nylon tower. Either one of them will take care of your Rusty issues.

Aluminum - http://www.neweramodels.com/item.cgi...d=&part_id=226

Nylon - http://www.rpmrcproducts.com/product...ires/80862.htm

RPM is the best. Aluminum will bend, or cause other parts to snap, and Nylon is flexible which makes it more durable. Plus, you can buy a white shock tower and dye it
