Default Aluminum hop ups for NTC3. Which brand?

I want to put aluminum hop ups on my NTC3 cars. Not because I need them but because they look cool! I don't want junk though but I'm also not made of money so. Which brands are decent? I know Hardcore and Fioroni are nice but also pricey. (I have a couple Hardcore pieces already) But what about brands like Dynamite, GPM, 3Racing, Megatech, etc? Are any better than others, any I should avoid? TIA

I just ordered a few Hardcore parts for mine, so Im excited. I also ordered an aluminum steering rack from www.eracingpro.com. Im kind of skeptical on their parts, but I am gonna give this steering rack a chance. K-Factory is also another good company that makes some nice parts, however trying to find a US dealer that has them in stock is almost impossible..

Thanks. I do have Hardcore left side chassis braces and front shock towers for both of my NTC3. One thing I wish I could find but it looks like no one makes is aluminum control arms for the rear of the version 2. Too bad most of it has to be anodized some color. I'd prefer raw aluminum.

Trust me, you dont want aluminum a-arms. I remember several years ago some company made them (Hammad Ghumman??) and they were notorious for being strong, but their strength ended up breaking the diff cases and shock towers and were more of a PITA to fix

The Fioroni NTC3 parts are very cheap now. If interested, let me know. Chassis for example is under $50.

Found your aluminum a-arms. Probably come from China, so buy with caution!!!

DO you guys stock their parts? I ordered a low CG fuel tank from another company who said it was on back order. I finally canceled my order after waiting more than a month..

NitroVal, I only see version 1 rear arms on that site. So far it looks like my only option is the carbon rear arms for the version 2 but I'm still looking!

Garen, e-mail sent!

You wouldn't happen to have any GS Vision Pro parts would you? Perferably the side chassis braces
