PSM Team Associated B6.1 Battery Positioning System

PSM Team Associated B6.1 Battery Positioning System
This new Battery Positioning System from PSM for the Team Associated B6.1 buggy was designed to hold the battery securely in place while maintaining the option to move it forward and backwards. The braceless design will allow a greater amount of linear torsion around the center area, this means the car can develop more overall traction. PSM recommends this system for 17.5T or stock drivers in general. It will work for modified as well, but may feel a little twitchy at higher speeds and fast sweeping corners due to the amount of torsion. However, depending on your personal preference or driving style it may feel just right! Read more…

JConcepts Tekno EB410 Carbon Fiber Upper Chassis

JConcepts Tekno EB410 Carbon Fiber Upper Chassis
JConcepts adds to the list of performance parts for the Tekno EB410 with a new Carbon Fiber Upper Chassis. The new upper deck offsets the position of the fan mount which allows several benefits. The first is the ability to use the JConcepts F2 body as the new carbon fiber part shifts the fan over to clear the low-profile cab of the body. The secondary benefit realized after testing the new upper deck is the ability to use a taller fan. This is a benefit not exclusive to the JConcepts body but to all low-roof body shell types because taller fans are typically more powerful and move more air. Another positive to the Tekno EB410 carbon fiber upper chassis is the slight position change of the fan allows some lower power fans to work better without the force of the motor magnets affecting the fan, bearings or rotation.
