Matt Olson Designs have introduced new aluminum and brass arm inserts for the Team Associated B6.1 , T6.1 and SC6.1. The arm inserts are made from high-quality 7075-T6 aluminum and brass and feature three hole positions.

The aluminium arm inserts are 1g heavier than plastic ones and great cross over for those looking for durable all-in-one inserts. The brass arm inserts are available in two versions,14g and 20g inserts which means 10 and 16 grams heavier then plastic inserts respectively. Both are designed to be use in outdoor tracks or carpet surface and allow to ultra-fine lower shock mount adjustment. They affect also the suspension, grip and CG characteristics.

Reedy Zappers SG2 Competition HV-LiPo batteries

See: Team Associated

Team Associated have introduced the new Reedy Zappers SG2 HV-LiPo batteries. Zappers SG2 batteries continue to utilize silicon-graphene construction but with an emphasis on reducing internal resistance and increasing cycle life. Zappers SG2 batteries feature a 7.6 nominal voltage, meaning that with a suitable charger, the battery can be safely charged to 4.35V/cell. It is not a secret that more voltage equals more power, so there is no easier way to achieve a performance advantage than a higher charge voltage! However, even when the typical 8.40V (4.2V/cell) charging limit is enforced, Zappers SG2 still offers a significant advantage thanks to a flatter discharge curve, which results in more voltage deeper into the race. Zappers SG2 batteries are available in low-profile (LP) stick and shorty versions. A high quality, durable hard case helps prevent damage while embedded socket connectors keep power-robbing resistance to a minimum. Male ESC connectors are included.
