Rusti Design B6-series carbon fibre option parts

Rusti Design from France have introduced their new range of carbon fibre option parts for the Team Associated B6 series of buggies. Available now are 4mm gullwing and flat front as well as standard and long rear shock towers all of which match the standard suspension geometry. They feature an updated overall design though, making them stand out from the kit parts. Next up is a 1mm front bulkhead shim to lower the suspension mounts for improved steering while a +2mm rear gearbox shim set has been designed to raise the gearbox and shock tower block with an additional shim being provided for the specific laydown gearbox. Using the parts helps to maintain low driveshaft angles while lowering the chassis which can help avoid traction rolling on high-bite surfaces.

Also new are carbon fibre steering blocks for the B6 and B6D that come as a 3-pair set of 0, +1 and +2 items with the latter increasing the Ackermann effect, resulting in improved mid corner steering. Next up is a battery strap made up using carbon fibre and 3-D-printed parts. Utilising the same mounting points as the standard part the plate offers improved battery plug access, better bodyshell clearance and full chassis flex. Last in the line of new carbon fibre parts is a rear wing mount stiffener made from 1mm material and usable on both the B6 and B64 buggies. Bolting the part between the wing mounts and wing will greatly improve the life of the wing. Mandatory on many astro turf and carpet tracks are the B6 and B6D front shock tower sliders, 3-D-printed parts available for the gull wing an flat-type towers that prevent damages to the shock’s “ears” while protecting the carpet surface when the buggy is on its roof. Last but not least comes a set of sensor wire hiding stickers featuring the Rusti Design logo.
