Recently announced are some new JConcepts aluminum upgrade parts for the Team Associated B4/T4/SC10 series of vehicles. Pictured above is their new aluminum CNC machined steering bellcranks. The stock Associated bellcranks are made out of plastic and the stock servo saver only works if constantly serviced, the upgrade JConcepts parts should be much more durable and they eliminate the troublesome servo saver all together. These are available in black or blue, have a retail price of $30 and the part number is #2158
The next upgrade is aluminum wing/body mounts for the B4/T4. I have personally broken dozens of the stock plastic Associated wing mounts over the last ten years so I can’t wait to get my hands on a couple sets of these. These are available in black or blue, retail price is $30 and the part number is #2951-1.
Finally, JConcepts has designed new battery hold down nuts. These are a trick bling part available in either black or blue, have a retail price of $15, and their part number is #2160-1.

Have you been snapping the front shock tower on your SC10 or T4 with shocking regularity? Then you might want to invest in RPM‘s latest product, a drop-in replacement front shock tower that will also fit the RC10GT2. Being made out of the Basher Approved RPM material makes this new part tough enough to survive crashes that would break the stock pieces. But that’s not all, this re-engineered shock tower also weighs less than the stock tower.
So how much would you expect to pay for better features and greater peace of mind? How does an MSRP of $9.95 sound? Good, right? Expect it to be hitting the hobby shop shelves soon. Check out RPM’s web site for more info.
Team Associated has some new, blue parts for all the Associated B44 drivers out there. The Factory Team is putting out a new aluminum motor mount and a pair of new aluminum hubs.
The motor mount features a cam system to make gear mesh adjustments quick and easy. And it’s also got a very secure mounting clamp to keep those adjustments locked in. The aluminum will also help with heat dissipation from your hot running motor.
The new hubs are available in .5° increments from 0° to 1.5°. They also have a molded camber link tower to keep you from breaking your ball studs. They are also made to use a larger bearing on the outside for better durability. They’ll also fit the B4, T4, and SC10 with the addition of the right sized bearings (part #7935) and Associated’s crush tubes (#7933).
For more info check out Team Associated’s site.

The shocks come in 0.89″, 1.02″, 1.18″, or 1.32″ lengths.
The complete shocks are going to retail for $49.99, while the shock bodies will be going for $24.99. Be sure to check out Team Associated’s web site for more info.
