RPM SC10 front shock tower

The goals for the new RPM front shock tower for the Associated SC10, T4 & GT2 were to improve strength and durability, improve crash survivability and help reduce damage to other vital components. The T-shaped structure of the front shock tower provides some serious strength and rigidity while the top-secret blend of materials we use provides unmatched durability. Although the SC10, T4 & GT2 each have different requirements of the front shock tower, the RPM version integrates all those needs for unmatched support of the shocks on all three trucks while the redesigned front bumper mount base for the SC10 has been strengthened to sustain repeated impacts from the stock front bumper. All this performance and durability is wrapped up in a part that weighs slightly less than the stock piece it replaces.

RPM SC10 rear shock tower

RPM have produced these shock towers for the SC10 & T4 that are designed to improve the structure and durability of these awesome racing trucks. The I-beam shape found along the tops and sides of tower provide some serious strength and rigidity while the chemical make up of their proprietary blend of nylons provides unmatched durability. The end result is a new shock tower design that will rigidly support the rear shocks while allowing the part to survive under extreme crash situations. Additionally, the unique nature of the materials help reduce transferred impact energy into the fragile chassis and chassis components. By absorbing that impact energy instead of transferring it on, this shock tower will improve overall crash survivability of the truck. All this and not one gram is added to the weight of the vehicle.
