Avid B6.3 Arm Mount C wider -2°

The new Avid B6.3 -2° C arm mount is a must-have if you are racing on high bite surfaces such as carpet or turf. This mount frees up the vehicle in the turns and when landing jumps sideways such as corner tabletops. To get to the low rear toe settings you need on carpet, you have to start narrowing the pills through the D Mount which is increasing side bite by decreasing your track width. This C Arm mount prevents that from happening by widening the C Arm Mount 1.4mm, thus starting you at 1 deg of rear toe with centered pills on the C and D mount instead of 3.

Yokomo BD10F front balance weights

Yokomo have released this front balance weight to improve traction of the BD10F. The weight can be increased by 40g on each side for a total of 80g, reducing wheel spin that tends to occur during acceleration. This will improve acceleration out of corners and improve your lap times. By using only one screw to fix the weight to the chassis, the effect on chassis rigidity is minimised.

SWorkz high density gear ratio system

SWorkz continues to design new parts to improve the speed of your car, the latest result of which is the high density gear ratio system. Compared to the original 1.0 pitch spur gears, the 0.8 pitch gear ratio gives you more feedback and feeling. The acceleration change is significantly quicker, yet smoother and more range is given from lower torque to higher speeds. 2 clutch bell sizes (16/17T) are available as well as different centre spur gears (57/58/59/60). Your original S35-4 nitro kit comes with 47/13T, so you can start by trying the new 58/16T gears, while with truggy you should use 59/16T or 60/16T.
