For some odd reason, Front towers seems to break in our part of the world.. Might be the driving style

Other parts broken so far is:
Front & Rear hubs
Steering Knuckles
One-way gear and bevel gear if you don't run alloy shaft holders

Thats it

If you are breaking the front towers..you should try two of them I highly doubt you will break one them

A Shipping Invoice..???!!! Why.?? I hope you tell these A$$ Clowns that they need to read the customs form that I filled out ...thats Says it`s a gift...hence the term I painted the bodies for free (not really but you get the idea )..

Should I use a different shipping address next time..??? I think that that might be best

It happens sometimes when I send stuff from the Japanese post office..because they are worried about the Country of Origin (of the parts that is)
