I'm just happy AE is coming up with a buggy that is dedicated to outdoor wet dirt tracks. (old school tracks/real off road)
BUT, we will see how it performs. I race at Hot Rod Hobbies where the SHOOTOUT race and JBRL racing series happens.
I race the B74 at Hot Rod and the buggy has been amazing at the track.
Hopefully this new "dirt" 2wd performs so much better than the B6.1D and the B6.1 (converted to dirt setup).

FYI there is a first-come-first-serve fast track email waiting list on the Team Associated page for each vehicle.

This doesnít appear to be for different conditions than the 6.1d. Itís a fairly minor update.

We will see if all that updates translates at the track. I raced a B6.1 setup for dirt and had good results with it.

The B6.2D makes me think about a thing.

this car keeps 67mm bones and 7mm hexes which means that the rear width did not change. So, current arms must be 73mm long too. Then, this car only gets updated hubs for what?

not if they narrowed (or widened) the chassis where the rear arms mount.

Looks like the b6.2 gets the new +3mm chassis. I do not see it listed as a feature on the b6.2d. I wonder if the b6.2d chassis is the same as the b6.1?

Do you guys think I could throw the pucks from my b6.1d into this car?
