RPM E-Rustler & Stampede 2WD wide front A-arms

RPM E-Rustler & Stampede 2WD wide front A-arms

Made for the Traxxas E-Rustler and Stampede 2WD trucks are new wide front A-arms from RPM. The arms extend the front width by 31.8mm and therefore by exactly the difference in offset between the front and rear wheels. All that is needed for the conversion, that will make for stability-adding performance, is a second set of “front” wheels for the rear of the truck to align the front and rear tyres. Depending on the converted truck a new set of front turnbuckles and toe links is needed due to the increased track width. The A-arm are made from RPM’s durable Nylon blend and they are available in a range of colours including black, blue and green.

JConcepts B44.3 carbon fibre option parts

JConcepts B44.3 carbon fibre option parts

During the 2015 Reedy Race of Champions, JConcepts debuted the B44.3 carbon fiber front and rear top deck, servo and battery brace. This carbon fiber parts set is unique in looks, tough in durability and contributes to tuned flexibility which leads to a better handling vehicle. The top decks feature slotted locations which were added to free up the rigidness of the vehicle. More flex will contribute to a more confident driver who wants a more flowing drive out of the vehicle. In addition, the antenna mount was removed from the front top deck and placed on a new and included servo deck piece. The new position of the antenna mount is perfect for the popular servo mount location as well as convenient for the receiver and antenna wire. For racers choosing the new Silencer B44.3 body it also pulls the antenna mount out of the cab area and places it down on the side pod area similar to a 2WD buggy, cleaning up the entire look of the vehicle. To finish, JConcepts has included a matching battery brace along with hardware to directly fasten the battery in place for complete security. All carbon fiber parts are designed by JConcepts, produced with genuine 2.5mm material and machined to perfection.
