Avid B6 titanium front axles & carbon fibre steering arms

Avid have added new Team Associated B6-series option parts to their portfolio in the form of the Triad titanium steering axles and two carbon fibre steering block arms. Starting with the front axles, the lightweight parts are designed to increase strength over the kit aluminium axles while also allowing to narrow the buggy’s track width with the included 1mm shim. The axles weigh in at 4.4g per pair, they are machined from billet 6AI-4V titanium while the shim is hard-anodised 7075-T6 aluminium, and they are usable on both the B6 and B6D.

In addition to the already existing carbon fibre steering block arms Avid also have +1 and +2 variants available with the increased Ackermann allowing the inside wheel to achieve more steering angle than the kit blocks. This reduces scrub and allows the vehicle to rotate better in the middle of the corner. This rotation comes at the price of less steering at the exit of the corner. The +1 arm offers an in-between setting of the steering feeling with the +2 arm making for the most mid-corner steering. The arms are available as pairs and also in a convenient set including the standard, +1 and +2 arms.
