RC-Project D819RS Ergal Front Shock Tower

Italian RC tuning parts company RC-Project has released this Ergal front shock tower for HB Racings D819RS EVO 1:8 Buggy.  Made from Ergal 7075 T6 with a thickness of 5mm and subsequently anodised and laser marked, the new design makes it possible to have the same weight as the original but with a stiffness increased by 30% thanks to the new lateral and upper ribs. All lightening pockets have a radius of 0.5 on the bottom to increase rigidity and eliminate the risk of breakage, all edges have been chamfered. The new geometry eliminates the problem of reduced stroke of the front shock absorbers after the D8 EVO update, moreover the upper/external hole has been eliminated and a new internal hole has been inserted to be able to tilt the shock absorbers more and give another setup option.
