RPM B6/B6D rear bumper & skid plate

See: RPM R/C products

RPM have introduced a rear bumper and skid plate for the Team Associated B6 and B6D. The rear bumper is tiny and extremely lightweight, yet will become the most valuable piece of equipment on your ride the first time that out-of-control guy slams into your backside! It weighs in at a minuscule 5.5 grams, however it offers some serious rear end protection. It is 2” (51mm) wide and extends rearward by roughly 1-1/4” (32mm) at a 45° angle. Additionally, it sits 0.095” (2.4mm) beneath the chassis. This skid area of the bumper lends extreme skid resistance to the back of that expensive aluminum chassis and helps reduce skid and impact damage to the rear of your chassis.

RDRP B6 aluminium C & D suspension mounts

See: RDRP

Revolution Design Racing Products have introduced their new C and D aluminium arm mounts for the Team Associated B6 and B6D. The suspension hangers are direct replacements for the kit parts and they add valuable toughness especially when running in demanding track conditions or when competing in modified classes. Machined from aircraft-grade 7075-T6 aluminium and coming in either black or blue anodising the parts also add visual impact. With their lightweight yet sturdy construction the mounts hardly add any weight meaning the buggy’s weight bias does not change and they are a direct fit on both the B6 and B6D when using Team Associated’s #92014 suspension inserts.

Schelle B6 67mm conversion HD axles

Coming from Schelle Racing Innovations and made for the Team Associated B6 are the 67mm conversion HD axles. The conversion HD axles are for B6 racers that want to run latest “long bone” setups. The 67mm conversion axles work with aluminum rear hub units by Schelle (B5M and B6) and Team Associated (B5M). The Schelle axles replace the kit units and keep the same overall track width. An extra set of 65mm bone cross pin holes (2mm closer to car centerline) allow for tuning back and forth between the 2 lengths of CVA. The long 67mm bones can move through the range of suspension travel with less angle mis-alignment. This translates to less bind on power and more rear grip as the suspension works under load instead of locking out due to the drivetrain.
