JConcepts B6 rear ball stud mount & F2 body mount

JConcepts have introduced two new option parts for the Team Associated B6 series of buggies in the form of an aluminium rear ball stud mount and a 3-D-printed F2 body mount flange. Starting with the ball stud mount, the part is extra beefy to withstand the tremendous amount of stress in today’s racing atmosphere. The durability in this mounting area has been put to the test with difficult race circuits and especially with the introduction of the 6th generation of Team Associated buggies. JConcepts has added thickness around the screw mounting holes, thickened the main connection U-brace and for twisting and bending resistance and added a thick rib from the main body to the screw location boss. The mount comes in blue or black anodising and it is decorated with laser-etched JC logos.

Also new and available exclusively through JConcepts’s Shapeways store is the 3-D-printed F2 body mount flange. The pat was designed for the all-new F2 body and it assists in maintaining the rear body height while utilising the forward mounted shock configuration on the Team Associated B6 buggy. The rear body mount flange gives a small shelf for the body to rest on after the user has cut the body shorter while running the shock tower on the front-side of the transmission, helping the body to maintain proper running height after mishaps and crashes. To add the flange piece, it is recommended to use two 3x14mm FHCS to account for the additional part and secure into the mount designed for a flat head type screw.
