Avid Ringer M4 wheel nuts & wing buttons

Avid have announced the release of their new Ringer product line with several more designs in the works to keep with our new theme. If you’re a fan of the silver highlight chamfer on your products then the Avid Ringer design approach is for you. The Avid M4 Ringer wheel nuts are designed to be the strongest all-around wheel nut for offroad and onroad racing. The 11mm flange provides the needed support from potential wheel flex on high bite tracks, while a thin 3.5mm thickness keeps weight down but also allows the nut to be used on 4wd fronts and if you cut your axles to length you will grab fewer pipes with them too. Then they added their aggressive serrations so you don’t have to tighten the wheel nut as much which helps in not deforming the wheel and ensures you will never pull the 7075-T6 threads out. The Avid Ringer wing buttons are designed to have that extra pop of two silver highlights without sacrificing durability. Both items are available in black, blue, red, pink, orange and silver.

Exotek B6.3 heavy duty 7075 alloy diff case

From Exotek comes this heavy duty machined 7075 alloy differential case for the B6.3 & B6.2. Perfect machined roundness makes for a free spinning transmission and a must have for high powered drag racing applications and extra internal machining allows for extra fluid to be added for increased fluid capacity and life. This is much stronger than the stock plastic diff gear but not indestructible so it is important to use black or white grease on the gears and reapply frequently to prolong its life.
