Team Associated announce the B6 platform


Having been teasing a new 2wd buggy over the past week on social media, Team Associated have finally announced the new B6 and B6D 2wd buggies. Out of the box, the B6 offers racers a setup developed for high to very-high traction, whereas the B6D excels when traction is low to high. Racing at multiple tracks, or where traction changes throughout the day, has never been easier; setups and tuning parts are interchangeable between the two configurations, making the B6 platform extremely versatile. The most obvious differences between both cars is the transmission with the B6 featuring a laydown 3 gear transmission with lower CG and reduced polar moment while the Dirt version has a standup 3 gear transmission with the weight more to the rear for increased rear traction. The B6 also comes equipped with a gear diff as well as gull wing arms and a wide front tower for increased on power steering where as the B6D is equipped with ball diff, flat arms and a narrow front tower for more responsive steering and quicker release out of the corner.
