JTP RB6 front shock tower & merchandise

JTP RB6 front shock tower & merchandise

New from JTP, the brand of multi-time US National and 2013 IFMAR World Champion Jared Tebo, comes a carbon fibre front shock tower for the Kyosho RB6 as well as two new T-shirts. Starting with the shock tower, the part was designed and tested by Jared himself and it is of slightly other dimensions than the stock shock stay to allow for an alternative front geometry. The part is machined from high-quality carbon fibre and it was designed to offer a better front end feeling through corners and over obstacles as it improves the uptravel of the suspension. The shocks need to be converted to LA43 long shock ends and the tower is up for grabs now. Also new are two T-shirts, the black Race To Win and the blue Strike shirt. Both 100 percent cotton premium Next Level tees are screen printed in the USA and, like the shock tower, available here.
