After over 12 months of racing the RR I have never broken any of the rear turret parts.

However if you seem to be breaking them a lot then I guess you should go for the aftermarket item.

However remember that the replacement plastic items are around AUD$8 and the aftermarket items are probably around $40-50. So you need to break a fair few.

GPM quality is very poor. In fact often times the alloy is as fragile as the hardened plastic that Kyosho uses.

Square makes a rear body mount. www.rcsquare.com

Any other suggestion for the rear turret for the RR. I haven't had a problem even though I had a few offs today down the track. I would like to know just in case of an ugly incident. I couldn't find the turret made by Square, has any body got info on the Square item or any other ( besides the GPM item ).
