JConcepts B6-series Fin titanium turnbuckle set

JConcepts B6-series Fin titanium turnbuckle set

JConcepts have announced the soon release of the Fin titanium turnbuckle set for the Team Associated B6 series of buggies. The base of the shafts design is centred around a .143″ titanium hex size which gradually tapers down into a 3mm thread base design which accepts the standard AE ball-cup configuration. The focus of the styling surrounds the lengthened adjustment hex area and the “finned” cuts that rotate about the centre. The turnbuckles are produced with left and right hand threads with the left being conveniently marked for easy orientation and the set fits both the B6 and B6D.
