This is the Pro-Line ProTrac Rear Shock Tower, and is intended for use with the Pro-Line ProTrac Suspension Kit for the Traxxas Slash Short Course Truck.

were about 1 ½ to 2 seconds faster with the Pro-Line suspension
Xtreme R/C Car Magazine: “The result is almost staggering after my test down at OCRC Raceway. We can’t recommend this kit enough.”

As for the tower, make sure you use the top camber link hole on the rear shock tower, it offers more rigidity and is a stronger point. The set up sheet that came with the kit shows placement int he middle hole, move it to the top hole for better durability. This is what is posted in a traxxas forum from a proline techy!
I give this kit 5 stars, as I understand, new products will have bugs, and the company made it right.....mucho kudos Proline! This kit turns the slash into a different, competitive truck! Cheers! -//- My Rear shock tower broke in only two laps, on a jump which I race on the same track all the time, just on a set of doubles, and indoor, well known track. Pretty disappointed. will buy one more shock tower and if it breaks too, I will send the whole kit back to proline. It does handle really well though, that is no BS. durability may be an issue! Rpm needs to make the same tower,that way I know it won't break
