New from Avid and made for the Hot Bodies D8T 1/8th scale nitro truggy are carbon fibre inserts for the front and rear A-arms. Developed and used by Ty Tessmann to win the 2014 Dirt Nitro Challenge the inserts offer another tuning feature by reducing the flex and twist in the arm. The carbon inserts starts as a 3.9mm thick piece which is milled down to 2mm thick while leave 6 islands still at 3.9mm and to finish them up the islands are pocketed in the middle to 2mm to remove unnecessary weight. These inserts are installed on the bottom of the arm and the islands key around the moulded ribs in the arm. Installing these pieces will take some personal time and they are available as separate front and rear set as well as a combo containing both the front and rear inserts and the needed drill bits to prepare the truck’s arms.
