For those of you with b4 and that are interested, a company called k-factory have a rear woven carbon fibre shock tower with alloy plate for the b4,must be a stronger alternative, plus it looks nice too

But why would you want to add weigh and add alloy that just going to bend.

I seen all this, its been out for years and had afew kfactory parts and they really arn't worth it they add pointless weight and cost to the car and are weaker, only look nice they also made front shock tower, battery strap, alloy motor cooling plate, and a fair few other bits

its only the bottom part thats alloy next to no weight added
there not enough to bend and yes there stronger
but its the front one you really want

i have ordered it!most guys add about 30 gram under in the rear where i race (eden park raceway)

there cant be that much of a difference in weight,even if i wasnt to put in gram wieghts in it would balance it out?

took my new ft 2008 b4 there sunday, went a bit to hard over the table top and land slightly rear right hand side first and snapped the carbon rear shock tower

looking for a stronger alternative,plus its looks the part???
