To coincide with the publication of the August issue of Racer (on sale on 5 July) that has a review of the Team Associated B6.1 Team Kit, we thought that we would feature a on-line build blog of the model on our website.
To begin with here is a run-down of the key features of the Team Associated RC10B6.1 Team Kit:
Easy-access gear differential
Differential height adjustment (0, 1, 2, and 3mm inserts included)
New slipper assembly for better weight balance and shock clearance
Three-gear laydown Stealth transmission for lower and forward centre of gravity
Heavy-duty V2 routed graphite front shock tower with tower guard
Heavy-duty V2 routed graphite rear tower, standard height
Heavy-duty V2 rear axle with 67mm bones
V2 springs for a more reactive and nimble feel
Innovative rear arm with moulded inserts for ultra-fine lower shock mount adjustment
Moulded spur gear guard to help protect body from damage
Front and rear anti-roll bars limit chassis roll for increased corner speed
Battery strap allows the use of optional turnbuckle-based braces

Aluminium rear clamping hex and front axle with laser etching
Rear hubs feature large bearings and the easy-insert system to adjust camber link position and rear axle height
One-piece shock bushing to make assembly easier
Aluminium C and D arm mounts included for large range of anti-squat and toe adjustment
Lightweight aluminium top shaft

This step-by-step process shows the order in which the 2WD buggy is built as well as lots of component details of the parts included in the kit.
We went with a Reedy package – servo, motor and speed controller.
