See: AVID Racing Concepts

AVID have introduced new carbon fibre option parts for the Team Associated, TLR, Yokomo, XRAY and Tekno 2WD and 4WD buggies in the form of carbon fibre wing buttons and carbon fibre wing mount braces. First up are the wing buttons. The wing buttons are made out of 100% carbon fibre and they are available in one-piece, a cool alternative to the commonly used wing buttons and in the usual shape for the B6.1, B64, 22 5.0, YZ-2, YZ-4, XB2, XB4, and the EB410 buggies. Also new are the carbon fibre wing mount braces. This DIY (Do It Yourself) product is a fun mod to create a carbon sandwich on your B6.1 wing mounts to keep them from permanently bending after a hard crash. The setup includes everything you need except for the drill.

AVID B6.1/YZ-2 Triad direct drive & carbon parts

See: AVID RC

AVID have introduced new Triad direct drive for the Team Associated B6.1/D and the Yokomo YZ-2 and carbon fibre parts for the B6.1/D, T6.1, and SC6.1. First up is the Triad direct drive allowing stock racers to remove the entire clutch assembly for conditions where the driver feels having less rotating mass and zero slip except from the differential is beneficial.This system is the lightest direct drive unit available today for the B6.1 coming in at 8.6g (72t), just beating out the AE direct drive at 8.8g (72t). But with the AVID Triad direct drive you get to run the full-width topshaft gear (no more stripped idler gears), you don’t have to change out the topshaft, and no screws you have to worry about falling out. AVID accomplished this by replacing the 6.4g of steel weight from the long screw and spring with a minimalist design done in aluminum. There is also an included M3 aluminum flanged locknut to remove even more weight if you are using the stock steel nut.
