Avid B5/T5 vented motor plate & pink 17mm wheelnuts

Avid B5/T5 vented motor plate & pink 17mm wheelnuts

Avid have a new vented motor plate for the Team Associated B5 and T5 as well as pink 17mm Triad wheelnuts available. Starting with the motor plate, the part is made for the use with the B5 and B5M buggies as well as the new T5M  truck and it helps to scrub weight while allowing hot air and dirt to get out of the gear cover. The 48 degree angled vents are placed to remove material above the motor, yet still maintain a rigid motor plate to keep gear mesh consistent. The part is fully CNC-machined from 6061-T6 aluminium and it comes black anodized with chamfered edges for that luxury look.

Also new are pink anodized Triad wheel nuts for the use with 1/8th off-road vehicles. The 17mm nuts weigh in at only 0.96g per piece and the unique Triad design utilizes only three corners of the nut instead of 6 to give the nut its light weight while also protecting the laser etched Avid “A’s” from being worn off like popular closed nuts. The nuts come in sets of four and add to the already existing black, blue, red and hard anodized variants.
