RDRP B5 series VTS Slipper Option Kit

RDRP B5 series VTS Slipper Option Kit

Revolution Design Racing Products introduce the VTS Slipper Option Kit for the B5 and B5M, designed to make the most out of the original Team Associated clutch. The 4-piece kit replaces the standard outer and inner aluminium slipper plates with vented variants for improved heat dissipation and fading-free operation. Also the centre VTS plate is replaced with a vented and hard-coated aluminium plate while the VTS slipper housing, originally a moulded composite part, is supplied in a lightweight, blue anodised and laser-etched aluminium variant. Like the slipper plate the housing is of a vented design to not only allow for better heat dissipation but to also lower its weight. All parts are precision machined from 7075-T6 aluminium and they are a direct fit on both the B5 and B5M.
