VectorWorks Carbon Fiber Shock Towers
The Losi Ten SCTE not only rips around the track, it’s also a fantastic bash machine. One of the few weak points on the SCTE is its shock towers. Jeremy and Brian over at VectorWorks have new towers for the SCTE that should be a lot tougher than the stockers. The VectorWorks shock towers are made out of 4mm thick press cured carbon fiber, making them some of the toughest that you will find.

The part number for the rear tower is #VW002 and #VW001 for the front. Street price for each tower is $27 and you can get more information at This Link.

Pro-Line Extended Body Mounts Traxxas Revo Summit
One of our favorite innovations of the last couple of years has been the Pro-Line Thumbwasher sets. These replace traditional body clips and won’t fall off and get lost during a hard bash session. They also help keep your body from ripping out around the body post.

The Pro-Line crew has incorporated their Thumbwasher sets into their new Extended Body Mounts for the Traxxas Revo/Summit platform and for Losi SCTE and XXX-SCT/22 SCT. You can now get the benefits of the Pro-Line Thumbwashers plus extended body mounts that allow you to mount a variety of aftermarket bodies.

The Pro-Line extended body mounts for Traxxas run $14 and you can find more information Right HERE. The body mounts for Losi cost around $12 and you can get information at THIS LINK on the Pro-Line website.
