Team C TC02C Evo rear bulkhead & alloy servo washers

Team C TC02C Evo rear bulkhead & alloy servo washers

Team C Racing introduce an aluminium rear shock tower mount for the TC02C Evo buggy as well as aluminium servo washers for general usage. Starting with the rear shock tower mount, the part is CNC-machined from aluminium and it replaces the standard composite part for a more durable one. The part offers improved support for the shock tower and it prevents the camber link ball studs from becoming ripped-out on impacts. The bulkhead sports mounting positions for the rear swaybar and it comes orange anodised to match the remainder of the car’s alloy options. Also new are 4.3mm aluminium servo washers whose design allows them to interlock with the servo’s mounting lashes to ensure a rock-solid installation as the servo cannot move in any direction even in harsh racing situations. The aluminium washers come orange anodised, in sets of four and they fit most standard-size and low-profile servos.
