Exotek Associated Direct spur gear hub
There are some applications where you might want to eliminate the slipper clutch on your Associated B4, T4, or SC10.

The Exotek crew has a spur gear hub that is a sano way of eliminating the stock slipper set-up. Once installed just bolt on a standard Kimbrough spur gear and you are ready to jam.

The part number is #1379 and it has a retail price of $14. Hit up This Link for more information.

We just posted the teaser pic, and now we have the real deal! Team Associated has officially announced the RC10B5 and RC10B5M. As you can see from the pictures, the B5M is mid-motor, while the B5 has a rear mounted motor. The goal for the RC10B5 was to make the best all around buggy for every type of surface. From loose dirt to blue-groove, and everything in between. The two versions share 90% of their parts across both platforms, but the different parts are what help make them a little more specialized. The B5M Mid-Motor is designed for ultra high grip on the high-speed high-grip tracks. If you have been waiting for a new 2WD buggy, your wait may be finally over.
