RDRP B64 caster block set

See: RDRP

Revolution Design Racing Products have introduced their new Caster Block Sets for the Team Associated B64 series of 1/10th scale 4WD buggies. An improvement over the original construction the hubs allow to easily adjust the camber link ball stud position and thus camber link length and roll centre by simply adding or removing shims. The multi-piece design was used on rear uprights before and is now available for the front hubs. While offering the standard kit geometry the hubs also allow to run shorter links which can be beneficial in a range of track conditions. The lightweight design and aircraft-grade 7075-T6 aluminium adds only minimal unsprung weight while still being sturdy and durable. RDRP’s C-hubs are usable on all B64-series buggies and they are available in a 10 degree or 13 degree variant to adjust the corner characteristics of the buggy.
