Bought it. Just one shock tower costs as much as the whole set.

From what I've read carbon fiber is stronger. I don't know the advantages of carbon fiber vs graphite but both seem to be preferred over aluminum. Ill give the graphite towers a try and if they fail ill just stick the stock plastic ones back on until I find something else. I really like the center piece of this combo deal so that was my main reason for purchasing it.

Good to know, let me know how all 4 parts work out for you. Do you do bashing, track runs, speeds?

I like track racing and light bashing. I mainly bash to get a feel for the ride or when I want to test it out and I don't have time to get to the track.

FYI if they don't work together then I probably won't run the graphite chassis brace. I'd rather keep dirt out of the spur gear, vs having the ability to change it without removing the entire brace. But that's me. If need be ill get longer screws to run them both but ill have to see how well they play together.
