JConcepts B6 CF battery brace & rear thumb bumper

Coming from JConcepts and made for the Team Associated B6 and B6D are a carbon fibre battery brace and a 3-D-printed rear thumb bumper. Starting with the battery brace, the part is CNC-machined from 2.5mm carbon fibre and it is a direct replacement for the stock part. Running different battery positions is possible while maintaining the necessary terminal clearance and providing a healthy holding force to keep everything intact even in the most demanding conditions or the inevitable crash. The brace includes hardware for fitment to each battery possible with four 3x10mm button head screws and four plastic locknuts.

Also new is a 3-D-printed replacement rear bumper for the B6 and B6D vehicles. The bumper is unique in shape, offering a thumb space which makes picking up the vehicle easier or generally a little more user friendly. The tucked design still maintains a minimal drag area and is positioned as close to the D-mount as possible. Tested by Jason Ruona, the new bumper took all the thrills and spills on a vicious triple-jump at a recent Indoor National Series Final in Mooresville, North Carolina and it available through JConcepts’s Shapeways store here.
