  • New molded front and rear tower covers protect the edges of the carbon fiber from damage, and keeps from damaging the track surface
  • Octalock spur gear and 11mm Octalock LCF pads using the heavier RC10B74.1 slipper spring for maximum consistency and higher torque capacity
  • Tie-rod battery brace parts and hardware included in kit for tuning additional chassis flex
  • Molded wire clips included for motor and ESC wires to keep your wiring organized
Updated Features
  • Updated carbon fiber front and rear shock towers with fine hole spacing adjustment
  • +3mm extended chassis length for additional stability and reduced weight transfer in high-traction conditions
  • Updated chassis and side rails for use with new direct-to-chassis servo mount giving a more direct steering feel and predictable chassis flex going into and out of corners
  • Updated top plate that keys to a new steering bellcrank brace for increased durability
  • Updated rear wing mounts for more durability and less bending
  • Set screw and flanged nut rear bottom shock mounting hardware for quick and easy shock removal
  • +1 carbon fiber steering arms

Legacy Features
  • 3-gear Laydown Stealth(R) transmission assembly for optimal mass balance on high- grip clay track surfaces
  • Fluid-filled gear differential included to withstand high load cornering
  • Front and rear anti-roll bars included to provide less chassis roll on high-grip surfaces
  • V2 12mm Big Bore threaded aluminum shocks with X-rings for low friction assembly
  • Machined shock pistons for more precise fit and smoother operation
  • V2 12mm shock springs for lower achievable ride height and nimbler feel
  • Aluminum rear ballstud mount with three link positions for maximum adjustability and added strength
  • Factory Team ball bearing set with 24 precision ball bearings, now oiled instead of greased for more efficient drivetrain
  • Easy-access differential with 0, 1, 2, and 3mm height adjustment inserts included. (RC10B6.3 comes with a gear differential). Height adjustment inserts allow driveshaft alignment through all ride height and axle height configurations
  • Rear hub assembly with aluminum vertical ball stud camber link mount and axle height inserts for precise roll center adjustment
  • Front wing mount and front wing included to increased downforce and front grip
  • Integrated 30mm fan mount (fan not included) to prevent motor fade due to overheating
  • 69mm CVA bones for reduced bone plunge and minimized friction at drive pin
  • The symmetric rear arms with improved geometry and stiffness can be flipped to allow a "split" for rear shock mounting position. Arms are available in 73mm and 75mm lengths (73mm included)
  • Outer rear hinge pin is captured with bolt head and lock nut for increased durability
  • Steel electronics and steel under-servo plates included for improved mass balance and lower overall center of mass
  • 5mm aluminum clamping wheel hexes
  • Lightweight aluminum one-piece top shaft and gear
  • Body designed with lower center of mass improves handling on high-grip surfaces (clear body and wing included)"

Hard to say without a list of changes. Right now I'd say that a 2 looks better than a 3 in the font they've chosen but that might be subjective.

Financially doesnít make sense for them to update so soon.

itís not as though the .2 wasnít competitive and needed a slew of upgrades

unless they needed to switch to a different factory or started a new contract and already had a .3 kit in the pipeline, itís a pretty narrow upgrade window

unless they had some goodies for the dirt clay kit...

son of a gun. I hope not though it honestly won't matter as my driving isn't to the point that an upgrade would be a difference maker.

Well before the .2 came out it got out after nationals a lot of people were running the b74 rear end with some sanding and stuff. I haven't heard of something similar. Only thing thats custom is raising the steering rack. And with 2 new parts you can copy that.

So I doubt theres a new car. But now that I say that......eh who knows. The B6.2 is a great buggy. If theres a new one, it doesn't make the .2s any worse.

In fact Associated officially announced the B6.1 on Feb. 8 2018:
https://www.associatedelectrics.com/...0b6_1_team_kit

...so that was most probably RcPlanet having prepared a new website page in advance to host the upcoming .1 whenever available and the web programmer must have made a typo and entered a 3 instead.

If you look at the op's screenshot of rcplanet ''supposedly new'' .3 page you can see pictures of the B6.1 and B6.1d at the bottom.

To me it is case closed at this point!
Except for the higher new map price and part number

You are right, but same goes for products from several other rc companies that have been out of stock too for a few months now. Same reality for major distributors and retailers such as Amain and Horizon, just to name a few.

So I don't thinks that we can draw any conclusions in regards ro the B6 based on that alone yet, given the circumstances the world is in right now.

edit: aaaargh! turned out losiracer12 was right after all! lol
