AVID RC8B3 & MBX7 FastTune camber shims

Made for both Team Associated RC8B3 and Mugen MBX7 are the AVID FastTune camber shims. The FastTune camber shims are made from Aluminum 6065-T6 anodized in black and designed to allow you to easily adjust your camber on popular pillow ball designs without having to fully unthread them. The tab feature helps you keep them in place as you tighten down the pillow ball. Don’t get caught up in all the complicated sizes AE has introduced, 0.5 and 1.0mm shims have been working for Mugen since the dawn of time. Also fits to other cars with 6mm threaded pillow balls.

RDRP B64 brass suspension mounts

See: RDRP

Revolution Design Racing Products have introduced four brass suspension mounts for the Team Associated B64 series of buggies. They are direct replacement for the kit’s lightweight parts and add valuable weight especially when running in high-traction conditions or when the track is getting bumpier. Machined from black-coated brass and sporting gold-colour chamfered edges the parts weigh in at 14g for the A LRC mount, 13g for the B LRC mount, 14g for the C mount and 15g for the D mount which shifts the weight bias further to the front or rear of the buggy, depending on the location of the brass hangers. Using the front A and B brass mounts will result in an easier to drive buggy while the rear C and D mounts add traction out of and rotation into corners. All mounts were designed to work with the original #92014 arm mount inserts and they are best used in pairs at the front or the rear.

RPM B6 & B6D “Flat” front A-arms

See: RPM R/C products

RPM have introduced new “Flat” front A-arms for the Team Associate B6 & B6D. Thanks to the hinge-pin holes held to extremely strict tolerances, the “Flat” front A-arms are an improvement compared to stock A-arms. Also RPM use in-line screws to retain the outer hinge pins while they ditch the inside retaining screws for shoulders in the hinge pin holes. This results in a weight reduction of 1.75 grams per A-arm (or 3.5 grams per pair) less than stock. Durability is also key to staying on-track. Whether bashing or racing, RPM A-arms are the toughest A-arms on the market so a rough landing or a hit from another competitor won’t take you out of the race.

A knurled outer diameter makes the tool easy and comfortable to use. Pair with the #1114 FT dual turnbuckle wrench and assembling turnbuckles has never been so quick and easy.
