Nuova Faor is great quality stuff. Yes it does cost more, but it is worth the expense. Fioroni is the same way. It is expensive, but once again, you get what you pay for.

gearguy,

Since you obviously don't know what you are talking about, let me enlighten you. Neither Nuova Faor nor Fioroni produce titanium shock towers. What they produce are 4 mm thick 7075 aluminum shock towers. The Kyosho parts are crapola. They bend without you even wrecking. Just land hard off of a jump, and the strain on the shocks will bend the tower.

Where in the world did you see that price???????????????????

I can pick them up for about 20 bucks here in Germany. And by the way, I drive a Mugen, I crash all the freaking time, and I have never bent a tower in 2 years of racing. That means that the Kyosho parts are crap for bending so easy. I didn't mean to piss you off, but you posted a ton of mis-information in your first post.
