I have a set of front and rear alum. shock towers for my 18T by GPM and so far so good, I am planning on getting the hub carriers and arms soon as well. They are made pretty well and a great price.

Okay, here's a good question: Which do you prefer? GPM or Fastlane Machine?

Look at all this stuff! Some parts will work on other cars as well (IE ESC Mounts for Bandit/Ruster will work on Stampede ect...).

On minis, I have had problems with the shocks, and diffs, but other than that, they work VERY well

Their products in general seems decent, but I wouldn't use their shocks. I had a TT-01 loaded with GPM stuff and the shocks were no better than the air friction ones the kit came with in my opinion.
