DKT have introduced new front and rear carbon fibre shock towers for the Mugen MBX7R 1/8th off-road buggy. The front tower is cut from 5mm carbon fibre for extra rigidity and durability while the rear 4mm variant offers additional upper mounting positions for the shock absorbers. The lightweight shock stays scrub around 40 percent of weight compared to the original alloy parts and they are available separately or as a combo set. Also new is the Shield Shock called front shock tower protector that improves the durability of the somewhat delicate upper section of the front shock tower as it reduces the chance of the carbon to crack, split or delaminate in the event of a crash. The shock tower protector is available in black and orange colour.
