See: Ruddog Distribution

Revolution Design Racing Products have introduced new carbon fibre front and rear shock towers designed for both the Team Associated T6.1 Stadium truck and SC6.1 Short Course truck. They matche the standard kit geometry but it is of a reinforced Heavy-Duty design for improved durability and stability, greatly reducing breaking issues and increasing suspension efficiency. Different than the standard part the RDRP HD shock tower is machined from extra thick 6mm carbon fibre, compared to the standard 4mm part, which further reduces flexing and tweaking under load, making the tower especially useful when running in high-traction or very bumpy track conditions as it improves overall traction. As it matches the stock dimensions it is a direct replacement with no setup changes needed when swapping parts over.
