Avid have introduced the Triad direct drive set that allows stock racers to remove the entire clutch assembly for conditions where the driver feels having less rotating mass and zero slip except from the differential is beneficial. The unit is of a very lightweight design which was accomplished by removing all the plates and pads as well as the steel spring with a minimalist design done in aluminium. The DD plate is hard anodised for strength and the DD post is gutted for weight removal for a grand total of 0.8 gram. For B5M owners, there is also an included M4 aluminium flanged locknut to remove even more weight. The direct drive set is a direct fitment for Team Associated 5th generation vehicles such as the B5, T5 and SC5 and it is also usable on TLR22 and Kyosho RB6 kits with the latter requiring the Avid Triad Kyosho aluminium top shaft. The set will hit the stores soon.

$15 isn't a bad price for it. There are already items very similar to this like the Exotek or even Shapeway 3D printed items. This eliminated the 3 screws for the gear and add an aluminum nut. I see Avid is making specific spur gears for this setup, I'm not sure if this works with the Kimbrough gears.

I already use a Shapeway 3D printed lockout that works great and is lighter than this setup. I like the fact that I can screw the gear to it, I am not sure I like the potential play that can exist with the pins on the triad. Knowing Avid I am sure their quality is excellent!

I am going to use the idea of the aluminum but on my setup.

I have been running this for over a month. The Avid is still snuggly attached to the spur, no play. I have loved the Triad spurs for the past few years, and this design is very elegant and light weight. My hobby shops carry Avid spur gears, but no so much kimbrough.

Pretty sure he runs the brass c mount on his car as well. At least the last time I looked at it he was.

I have a b5r which shares parts on the front so I guess I will start swapping them out to see what is wrong
Do you realize how small 1mm is?

But he and every othe fast ae car was running 3gear and looked to have no issues with forward drive. So I switched to a 3gear and my car doesn't do wheelies when I punch it, my tires are well sauced and inserts broken in, Idk what I'm missing? My car has BT's most recent club setup on it, esc setup as well.
Setup, a well built drivetrain, a well adjusted slipper and ball diff, a smooth throttle finger and a LOT of horsepower.

Default chassis crade

Hi,

I am building a champions edition kit.

I got to the third step, to secure the 'chassis cradle 91514' to the chassis '91510' (aluminum). Where the chassis cradle notches into the front chassis plate is fine, but the 6 m3x8mm bolts which are supposed to go from underneath the chassis into the chassis cradle, these simply do not line up. I see later on in the manual that the Chassis brace '91521' is secured also to the chassis, but those holes don't line up.

Did I get the wrong chassis brace? I checked the supplements to no avail. Thanks.

Yea I figured, Avid makes top quality stuff! If I didn't already have mine I would definitely purchase this. I am happy to hear that you like it and it always makes it easier when your lhs has the items readily available.
