RC Modifications Carbon/alu MBX-6 towers

RC Modifications Carbon/alu MBX-6 towers

Danish company RC Modifications had the idea to make a shock tower using the combination of two different materials, carbon fibre and 7075 aluminium. The idea is to avoid breakages that can happen with carbon shock towers yet retain the lightweight. They succeeded and have created this half carbon half alu shock towers for the front and rear of the Mugen MBX-6. The front tower only weighs 21grams, only 4 grams heavier than the full carbon tower, while the rear tower weighs in at 27grams. Currently only in the protoype phase, expect a release in the near future.
