Default Xtreme Racing CF Shock Towers

Anyone have any experience with this product? Specifically on a CRT .5 but any application will do just fine, I am curious as to quality and durability compared to its CNC counterpart. Also, any experience with any Xtreme Racing product would be nice to hear about too in terms of quality and durability.

In my experience they are great way to cut weight, and are really strong as far as CF...Obviously they aren't as strong as CNC machined aluminum, but in my time running the CF towers on my MBX5T i haven't broke one yet.. After 2 years of having them on my Truggy i just yesterday ordered a new front tower, cause i noticed the top edges splitting a little, and I don't want to risk it, but after 2 years i'd say i definitely got my money's worth.
IMHO i give Xtreme RC Racing A+

I have never used them personally..........

Bruce, the owner of Xtreme RC (im almost 100% that is his name) was a racer himself locally here in the Charlotte, NC area. My R/C buddies that got me into this have been racing about 5yrs before i came along this year, and they know him pretty well as a friend. Both guys use the CF shock towers on their buggy and truggy and they havent had any failures.
I heard someone say one time that he makes a couple big manufactuers CF parts, but i cant stand behind this because i dont know myself.
Ive done everything Hank did but die
