ST Racing Concepts 6mm Heavy Duty Rear Shock Tower (Gun Metal)
Looks pretty, trash durability.
A few (well landed) jumps on a BMX track and the upright part sheared right off from the base part, ripping the countersunk screws completely off.
For the record, chassis did slap, so full force did not get transferred directly on the tower itself.
Buy it if you're building a shelf queen, but if you're planning to run it, I suggest you save your money and look elsewhere.
