See: Ruddog Distribution

Made for the Team Associated B74 and XRAY XB4 1/10th scale 4WD off-road buggies are the new RUDDOG carbon fiber side guard sets. The side pods are moulded from high-quality carbon fiber for a low weight and high-quality surface finish, ensuring cool looks and improved car performance as the side guards weigh in at about 17g for the B74 version and 24g for the XB4 version, which is considerably less than the standard composite plastic side pods. Being made of tough carbon fiber the side guards retain the original flex characteristics of the chassis while offering slightly increased ground clearance during cornering. Included with the side guards comes suitable mounting hardware.
