new shock tower design for '91 RPM RC10

'91 RPM RC10 runs great on certain tracks with it's long arms. but never liked to cut the body for fitting the front shock tower. so, I tried a new shock tower weeks ago

it's the typical '91 front shock tower. and the body has to be cut with this setup

my rc buddy drew this during his T2 buggy project. you can see why we like this design. don't have to trim the body. but still got a problem. and I moved to the 2nd design 

and the result was like this. the left one got the shock towers from the drawing. I ran my '91 RC10 with the tower at the track. and didn't get any issue. a few more pictures are here.

here goes another drawing we started after I came back from the track. it's a mixture from the original PRM's and the 1st version, plus some tweaks. this one is the one in my mind. 

and the idea came true like this


  1. Nice work there mate, you could sell these? ;)

  2. I sent mine to a shop and they finished 10 towers yesterday. will get them pretty soon. do you want one Matt?
