    I'd also be interested in a tower to tower brace. You could create one that's custom fit to your tower designs.

    Really liking my Voltage Hobbies servo saver by the way, great design!

    I don't recommend the use of a tower to tower brace as it makes the towers and gearbox cases more likely to bend/break under hard impacts/crashes, the reason is most of the energy gets transferred directly to those two parts. I've tested out a tower to tower brace and it does lead to broken gearbox cases and bent shock towers from my testing. Even high-grade aluminum or carbon fiber shock towers are still prone to bending or snapping (it takes a lot more force for it to happen, but it does).

    I'm planning on releasing either a full chassis plate that's made from thicker higher grade aluminum than stock or a full-length skid plate that helps reduce the excessive flex of the stock chassis plate. I'm hoping to bring one of the two to market soon.
