HUDY have introduced new car stand for 1/10 buggy. The redesigned and improved car stands features new lower and more compact rubber feet that make the stand more stable.

The car stand features also stylish HUDY graphics and logos. Four rubber feet ensure that the stand will stay firmly in place and not move while working on the car. Two super-soft foam strips bonded to the top surface ensure that the car will sit softly and will not move while you’re working on it. Four strategically placed holes on the top of the stand provide a secure placement for shocks during rebuilds. The holes are additionally labeled with FL, FR, RL, and RR symbols to allow easy recognition of the different shocks to ensure you can easily identify the shocks.

AVID EB/ET410 Ti shock standoffs V2 & TLR 22 king pin screws

See: AVID Racing Concepts

AVID have introduced new titanium shock standoffs V2 for the Tekno EB410 and ET410 and titanium king pin screws for the TLR22. The shock standoffs use the keyed shock bushings and include AVID’s FastTune feature which allows you to use a common 1.5mm Allen wrench to prevent the standoff from spinning while using a 5.5mm socket wrench on the other side. The other solutions out there require you to either take the shock completely off the standoff to reach the 7.0mm nut or to use a 7.0mm open-ended socket wrench. Don’t forget, you also get to lose some weight from the highest point on the car by switching from steel to titanium.
