    Shock tower

    Xtreme Racing Tower looks pretty cool!!!!
    Question--> Is there a brand that makes aluminum shock towers with a Protrac stance(upper mounting holes)?

    There's a few brands that make aluminum shock towers, FLM, Integy etc. Pretty sure they have plenty of shock option holes on the towers.

    Thanks for the pic dot. I'm looking to replace my front tower with something that delivers more shock angle ands durable. Flm probably for me. I was even thinking about trimming my lower front shock ends and drilling a 3rd hole in the protrac arms to the outside.

    You could make one out of a sheet of carbon fiber. Then you could have the mounts out as far as you want. If you want to mount the upper part of the shocks closer together then the New Era multi mount is a really good option. Or you could make one of them from carbon fiber as well while all the tools are out.

    I used the Fr & Rr Xtreme Racing shock towers on my Rusty build. They've done a great job so far. They are definitely different.
