AVID introduce new RC8B3.2 carbon fiber option parts

See: AVID Racing Concepts

AVID RC have added new carbon fiber option parts for the Team Associated RC8B3.2 to their range in the form of new arm inserts, shock towers, and steering block arms (+2°). The carbon arm inserts offer the buggy another great tuning feature by reducing the flex and twist in the arm. The inserts are different than the others by starting with a 2mm carbon plate so the screws have full material to seat into (allowing for better plate pressure against the arm) and then pocketing out the rest of the carbon so the insert still remains light weight and provides the stiffness that we have all come accustomed to. The 2 5mm carbon shock towers are made from 100% carbon fiber, glossy finish, 2.5d cutouts for a nice look, and lightly chamfered on the front side to help avoid splitting or chipping on hard wrecks. The carbon fiber steering block arms (+2°) are made from 100% carbon fiber, increases Ackermann. The +2° increased Ackermann allows the inside wheel to achieve more steering angle than the kit blocks. This reduces scrub and allows the vehicle to rotate better in the middle of the corner. This rotation comes at the price of less steering at the exit of the corner.
