really. first time I have heard of this fix. Thinking of ordering up exotek rear tower as it looks beefy. maybe I will have to add the 1mm spacer. all 3 towers have broken in the same spot exactly. broke a truck rear arm right on the seam too friday night. Had a awful night of racing and lots of "bad Luck". I am not a novice driver and am having a bit of durability issue right now that is frustrating the hell out of me. Our track (carpet on top of concrete floors) can be a bit rough on vehicles I will admit. I also managed to explode a rw machined spur. lol see pic below. not sure if motor moved or what as i just packed up shit and went home and haven't touched it since then.

I am new to the machined spurs. Is this a normal occurrence vs molded spurs. I expected teeth to be wore down not broke off lol
