Default WTB B6.1 front arms

The ones on my kid's buggy were more resilient to a 6 year old driver. The current B6.X arms are stiffer, but break easier.

Anyone have a stash of B6.1 front arms?

And no, I won't be emailing your friend Dave that has exactly what I am looking for.

MiCk B. :-)

never even crossed my mind that they made arms for a b 6.1. Will definitely try them. Thank you!

or not. Discontinued! I will try to find some on the secondary Market though. Thanks again.

I would highly recommend NOT using RPM, it’s will move the break to something else…

Both my kids cars run the standard #91673 arms which are plastic and are in stock at Associated….

And they don't flex as much as original B6.1 arms.

Just a thought, but you may want to be looking for B6 front arms ... they carried the same 91673 part # as the current offering for B6.X, but if the 'early/original' sets seemed a little different, there may have been a slight compound change between the 6 and 6.X ... not sure how you would differentiate since they look to be using the same packaging, but maybe from someone that had front arms from the time the B6 was the current offering ... the B6 fronts had two compounds available, the regular and the hard, so maybe there was a change (?)...

There are (3) front arms, I am assuming GULL, that are available..

The #91673 are black, plastic, more flex and more durable.

The “old” 91872 are the light grey, HARD, less flex more brittle that have been replaced with the new carbon ones that are the go too. Less flex but more durable now…

That should be the 91871 set I believe, AE had a press release on components from this compound a while back ...

I honestly don't care. He is 6 years old. We run on carpet, but he won't know the difference. All I know is the old arms were way more flexible than the new ones. For him, I need flex.

Is there a point at which free shipping kicks in? I'm fine if there isn't, but hate to miss out because I didn't know.

currently not right now. its definitely something that will come in the future when the shipping volume is high enough to get a bigger discount..
