Team Associated RC10B74.2 & B74.2D Team Kit

Team Associated have released their new RC10B74.2 & B74.2D Team Kit 1:10 buggies.  As tires, motors, batteries, and tracks evolve, Team Associated adapts and improves with every iteration of the RC10. Their engineers set out to extract more performance from the RC10B74 4WD buggy platform with the introduction of the RC10B74.2 and RC10B74.2D. The goal was to reduce overall weight, lower the centre of gravity, and improve jump and bump handling. The RC10B74.2 and RC10B74.2D introduce molded gearboxes front and rear, which lower the centre of gravity by removing weight from high points of the car. They have also modified the differentials to improve rolling speed through turns and increase stability on landings, allowing the buggy to corner faster on high-grip carpet and clay tracks. The latest 13mm big bore shock technology from Team Associated is included, taking the RC10B74.2 to the next level in jump and bump handling performance. The introduction of gull wing front suspension arms and the inclusion of the LTC gear sets for the differentials make the RC10B74.2 platform easier and more predictable to drive on any track condition.


New lightweight molded gearboxes front and rear:
Two fixed height front gearboxes allowing 0 and +2mm diff height options. One rear gearbox with RC10B6-style inserts allowing 0, +1, +2, and +3mm diff height options.

New 13mm big-bore threaded aluminium shocks and springs with machined shock pistons for improved bump and jump handling.

New gull wing front suspension arms and mating shock tower for lower centre of gravity and better steering predictability.

LTC differential gear sets are included. They reduce binding under power, giving more predictable power delivery.

New battery hold-down system uses inserts to adjust weight bias. O-ring style battery strap with pull tabs.

New larger 3.5mm turnbuckles with updated rod end style ballcups to increase durability and reduce bind in the suspension.

New centre bulkhead fan mount that mounts the fan above the motor for better cooling performance.

New -2mm wing mounts for use with slicks and low-profile carpet tires to further lower the centre of gravity.

+3mm aluminium steering rack for optimised bump steer at low ride heights.

66mm Rear CVA drive shafts and axles for more on-power traction and more predictable driving feel.

For the RC10B74.2: 2-pad high-load, high-capacity centre slipper clutch with LCF pad material.

For the RC10B74.2D: Centre differential with 72T and 78T spur gear and 200,000 CST silicone diff fluid.
