AVID CPD AE/Yokomo slipper pads

AVID RC have introduced their new Consistent Power Delivery (CPD) slipper pads for Team Associated and Yokomo slippers. The CPD slipper pads are made with a new material designed with the focus of providing a larger tuning window while also being able to handle higher temps. This allows for less slipper fade during a run and you don’t have to adjust your slipper setting nearly as often to maintain the same track feel. The Triad pads are distinguishable from the white Triad pads by having radius notches on each of the pad arms.

AVID B64 carbon fibre front top deck & B6 shock towers

AVID have introduced a carbon fibre front top deck for the Team Associated B64/D and carbon fiber shock towers for the Team Associated B6. First up is the front top deck. It is made from 2.5mm thick carbon fiber and it is a direct fit without any modifications. This top deck replaces the molded brace and instead of connecting to the servo mount it extends to the center diff mount for more rigidity in the front end. This removes the springing action from the chassis which allows for the tires to stay in contact with the surface more consistently. The carbon fibre front top deck comes with two M3x8 and two M3x10 SS button head screws.
