"Made for the Team Associated B5 series of buggies are these aluminium shock mounts from RDRP. Machined from aircraft-grade 7075-T6 aluminium and hard-anodised, the bushings not only look cool but they also improve suspension efficiency as they do not bend under heavy loads like the kitís composite bushings do. Precision manufacturing ensures an optimised fit within the upper shock cap while the specially treated surface makes for a hard-wearing part. The parts fit both rear and mid motor converted cars."

As cool as a belt would be, I was thinking just eliminating the two idlers and going top shaft to diff. It'd require a new case for sure. But if you look at one side of the diff case, they're really not all that far apart. Maybe just move the top shaft down and a back a little and tada. Someone get on that! I'm busy with midterms!

Congrats! Its a really easy kit to build, too. Just take your time

If you are not worried about hanging with the true Mod guys, i think a 10.5 is perfect.

The gear ratio would still be the same 2.6:1 and you would still have to gear the motor like you would with the idlers there. Study more...

The only reason it would require different gearing is because you might have to run a smaller spur to avoid the outdrive. Haha. But a non issue in stock!

" they also improve suspension efficiency as they do not bend under heavy loads like the kitís composite bushings do.

the composite ones are supported by a nut and titanium screw in my case. It would be extreme to have them bend right? Look super cool though.

I like those rdrp shock standoffs. I like how they are one piece. Pretty slick.

Well, on top of the gear box. I HATE button head 2mm screws. The tool surface area on the hex is shallow. So I was thinking about using some flat head screws on the top. Maybe SS/Ti screws, with purple washers. Or purple screws with silver alum coned washers. Just a blink thing. My daughter loves purple and it would match her paint scheme which is purple/white/pink.


Anyone use fastener-express? Lookin at these
