Ignite Design RC bringing back gas truck

Ignite Design RC have released and interesting new project, a Nitro conversion kit for the Associated T6.1/6.2.

Using a modern TC6 as a base, the conversion kit is very complete, including new chassis plate, top deck, receiver box, fuel tank, engine mounts, braking system, clutch, air filter and throttle/brake linkages. The end result looks very high quality, with some nicely machined aluminium and carbon fibre, and works as expected. They are currently taking pre-orders for a December delivery.

Avid TC6.2 aluminium chassis plate

Coming from Avid and made for the Team Associated TC6.2 is an optional aluminium main chassis plate.
