HB Racing D418 rear gear box & arm mount sets

See: HB Racing

HB Racing have introduced a new rear gear box and three sets of arm mounts for the D418. The new rear gear box is designed for high grip astroturf and carpet race tracks. It raises the position of the diff and upper arm mount to match the roll center when using a low ride height. The HB Team Drivers report it makes the D418 easier to drive on high grip surfaces, improves corner speed, and smoothes out rear end grip. This new rear gear box should be used with D418 Arm Mounts 4, 5 or 6. The set includes one gear box, aluminum tube, R2 skid plate (standard, use with this application), and R4 skid plate (for future options).

See: AVID Racing Concepts

AVID RC have introduced new black shock standoffs for the Team Associated B74 and new black hexes for the Team Associated B74 and B6.1 lineup of vehicles. First up are the popular shock standoffs in a 10mm version for the B74. They include replaceable Delrin bushings and threaded all the way through to keep them from bending as easily. Next up are the black hexes in 5mm. They include the ever popular 2-56” screw that is a larger thread with a 2mm head to prevent stripping. It is suggested to use AVID’s 12mm carbon track width spacers so you only need to own one set of hexes instead of the 5mm, 6mm, and 7mm sets.
