RDRP B74 alu fan mount

Coming from Revolution Design Racing Products is an aluminium fan mount for Team Associated’s latest B74 1/10th 4WD buggy. The item is machined from aircraft-grade 7075-T6 aluminium and it attaches to the centre chassis brace by using an already existing mounting point. The mount is designed for 30mm and 40mm fan units that are held in place with much greater reliability compared to just using double-sided tape while also adding visual impact and cool factory looks. The black anodised item comes laser-etched to show off your passion for everything RDRP and it only adds minimal weight. The fan mount is a direct fit on the B74 when using 30mm fan units. 40mm fans only fit certain body shells so some adjustments to the body height might be needed. The mount is also available including a Ruddog 30mm aluminium HV high speed cooling fan.

Hudy Chassis protector vinyl sticker

Hudy have introduced this new chassis protector vinyl sticker. Sized 360x125mm, and easily cut to fit your car, it is a great option to help protect the chassis of your 1/10th buggy. Recommended for use on new and used chassis to resist against scratches and scrapes and prolong the life of the chassis, for best results always replace the sheet when noticeable wear occurs. In addition to protecting the chassis, the protector also provides a slick and smooth chassis surface which reduces friction when contacting the race surface – especially clay. If you land hard and bottom out, your buggy should more easily slide through it and maintain momentum.
