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.
