See: AVID Racing Concepts

AVID have introduced a new -2mm carbon fibre rear shock tower for the Team Associated B74. Made from 4.0mm thick carbon fibre and designed to limit the shock up travel to keep the dogbone from hitting the outdrives at full compression, the shock tower maintains the stock shock angles and it has two small drill holes under the center hole of the wing mount for notification.

AVID B74/B6.1 black shock standoffs & black hexes

See: AVID Racing Concepts

AVID RC have introduced new black shock standoffs for the Team Associated B74 and new black hexes for the Team Associated B74 and B6.1 lineup of vehicles. First up are the popular shock standoffs in a 10mm version for the B74. They include replaceable Delrin bushings and threaded all the way through to keep them from bending as easily. Next up are the black hexes in 5mm. They include the ever popular 2-56” screw that is a larger thread with a 2mm head to prevent stripping. It is suggested to use AVID’s 12mm carbon track width spacers so you only need to own one set of hexes instead of the 5mm, 6mm, and 7mm sets.

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.
