Yaiba Racing introduce the Ver.2 rear bulkhead assembly for the Kyosho RB6. Designed to fit the mid motor variant of Kyosho’s World Championship winning buggy, the new bulkhead is of a 2-piece design with a red anodised camber link plate and a black anti-roll bar and shock tower mount. The design allows the direct use of Kyosho’s anti-rollbar set while the separate camber link plate makes for easier setup and maintenance. Weighing in at around 19g the bulkhead mimics the kit’s suspension geometry for a drop fit without the need to adjust existing setups.

Yaiba Racing from Japan have two new carbon fibre option parts for Team Associated’s B4 line of buggies available in the form of a multifunctional ESC tray and a LiPo battery strap. Starting with the tray, the mounting platform for electronic speed controllers is designed to rest on the rear bulkhead of the chassis and allows the mounting of the speedo above or below the tray. Beside being a simple platform the carbon fibre part also offer openings and mounting positions for a large 40mm fan allowing for very good cooling even if the speedo is sandwiched between the chassis and the battery in its lower position. But the cleverness doesn’t stop there. The part comes with an add-on aluminium battery stop for shorty LiPo packs to make sure the controller is perfectly secured and the battery stays in place. The second new part is a 2mm carbon fibre battery plate in short specification for the use with all standard and regular length 2S LiPo batty packs. The part is designed to fit all B4-based vehicles and is useable with the stock or aftermarket thumb screws.

Yaiba Racing have released some new parts for Team Associated B4 and Kyosho RB6. First up for the B4 is this lightweight and strong aluminium bell crank set which gives a more direct steering feeling without servo saver function. Next up for the RB6 is a super hard heat sink motor plate machined from 3mm thick A7075 aluminium. A special heatsink design improves heat dissipation and weight reduction. The motor screws can be held in place by O-rings while attaching or removing the motor simplifying the process. The weight of this product is almost the same as the kit standard motor plate so there is no need to change your set-up. Finally for the RB6 is this precision machined aluminium rear upper bulkhead for mid motor layout. It significantly improves strength and durability and the ball stud attachment position is the same as the kit standard so no need to adjust your setting.
