Team SR introduce new weighted front bumpers for the Team Associated B4 and the TLR 22 platforms. Starting with the B4 variant, the front bumper is designed to replace the kit’s moulded plate with a 21g heavy and nickel-plated piece in order to adjust the weight balance of B4, T4 and X-6 cars. The special surface not only looks the part but also eliminates corrosion to make the part looking like new for a long time. The TLR 22 bumper is zinc-plates and a direct fit on the 22, 22T and 22SCT. Both plates help to mount needed weight as low and as forward in the vehicle as possible.

Avid extends their range of 12mm big bore shock absorber pistons by two flat-type 2-hole 1.5mm and 1.7mm variants. The precision machined pistons are useable with many of today’s 12mm big bore shocks such as the ones from Team Associated, TLR and Kyosho. Machined to tight tolerances the pistons reduce performance decreasing blow-by and come supplied in sets of four in a handy container. To make the most out of the company’s line of shock parts Avid also released a comprehensive piston table, a 1 page reference and setup help. The goal of the piston table is to provide recommendation on what pistons/oil to use as a standard setup, and then to dictate which pistons to use in order to change setup for grip, large jumps, and smooth or bumpy conditions.
