Team Associated have released the RC10B74: their newest 1/10 scale 4WD electric off-road buggy kit. The off-road RC car racing scene has changed in the past couple years, with turf and carpet racing becoming more popular so the Area 51 designers were quick to address this trend and created a new chassis designed to give you the winning edge.
This new racing buggy was designed with focus on performance and durability. New features like the easy-access, quick-change differential height make tuning for different track surfaces and ride heights quicker than ever.
7075-T6 aluminum bulkheads and arm mounts provide precision and durability, while the updated shocks with increased stroke length allow for more consistent jumping and landing. Also included, an all new rear hub assembly with a modular vertical ball stud mount and axle height insert system to allow the finest roll center adjustments possible. With many other new features, the RC10B74 Team Kit gives you all the performance and adjustability necessary to keep you racing at the front of the pack.
The CHASSIS is made with 2mm hard-anodized 7075-T6 aluminum chassis provides improved flex characteristics and minimal mass. 2,5mm graphite center bulkhead brace for improved stiffness and reduced mass.
Ball bearing raced 7075-T6 aluminum steering rack and composite steering bellcranks with 2.5mm graphite input arm offers optimized Ackermann and adjustable steering rate
New steering blocks with larger outer ball bearing and increased bearing spacing for improved durability
DIFFS AND SLIPPER:
Quick-change adjustable differential height with 7075-T6 aluminum bulkheads.
our independent front and rear diff heights possible.
Easy-access differentials for worry-free maintenance and adjustment
Fluid-filled gear differentials with machined ring gears, front and rear
Updated 3-pad slipper assembly allows use of center differential without changing center bone length
Optimized suspension arm geometry with improved durability and stiffness
New symmetric rear arms with improved geometry can be flipped to allow a “split” for rear shock mounting position
7075-T6 aluminum arm mounts with optimized roll center positions use inserts, which allow fine tuning for a large range of anti-squat, kick-up, and toe adjustments
Common front and rear anti-roll bars to minimize spare part count
Anti-roll bar sets for both carpet/turf and dirt included
4mm graphite shock towers front and rear for improved stiffness and durability
V2 12mm Big Bore threaded aluminum shock with X-rings for low friction assembly
New shock lengths front and rear with longer stroke allows increased droop and up-travel for more consistent jumping and landing
Machined shock pistons for more precise fit and smoother operation
V2 12mm shock springs for lower achievable ride height and more nimble feel
