Team Associated B6.1 & B6.1D Team Kit 2WD buggies

After showing pretty much every new detail in yesterday’s teaser images, Team Associated now officially announced the new B6.1 and B6.1D Team Kit 1/10th 2WD buggies. The B6 platform introduced the use of two separate chassis configurations – and the B6.1 continues this theme. The B6.1 will be the choice for tracks with very high traction, where a forward mass is beneficial and chassis roll needs to be tamed through a low centre of gravity and anti-roll bars. The B6.1D now has an all-new Lay Back Stealth transmission that gives the car additional traction when exiting the corners. The addition of +1 Ackermann plates and gull wing suspension arms tune the steering for razor-sharp feel and control. Both cars have new features, including an easy-access differential, diff height adjustability, and an all-new slipper assembly, while the setups and tuning parts remain interchangeable between the two configurations. Both kits are set for a release in March.
