3DRC B6 -2mm rear gearbox brace

3DRC B6 -2mm rear gearbox brace

Made for Team Associated’s B6 series of buggies is 3DRC’s new -2mm rear gearbox brace. The 3-D-printed part is of an updated design, based on a stock-part modification carried out by European high-class AE drivers, that lowers the standard camber link mount by 2mm, resulting in different roll centre settings that can be beneficial especially in high-grip carpet conditions. The brace comes including a set of shims that allows to easily revert to the standard setting and it is available through the brand’s Shapeways store.
