RDRP B5-series battery plate thumb nut set

RDRP B5-series battery plate thumb nut set

The RDRP battery plate thumb nuts for Team Associated 5th generation off-road vehicles are machined from high-quality 7075-T6 aluminium and they are of a super lightweight design while offering a slightly lower profile than the original ones. Excessive machining brings them down to 0.8g per piece and their overall design makes for improved visual impact. Included with the thumb nuts come clear O-rings to prevent the nuts from becoming loose in severe off-road action. The fasteners are available in blue or black anodising to match with the remainder of Revolution Design Racing Product’s option parts for Team Associated’s 5th generation off-road cars.
