Avid Releases Updated Aluminum Steering Bellcranks For The Team Associated B5, B5M, T5M, And SC5M
From Avid RC:
We updated the design and material on the left bellcrank (6061-T6 to 7075-T6) after quickly learning that our first production units that incorporated a minimal design were not up to the task of handling the forces placed on them, especially in truck. After refunding all the customers that purchased our first production we more thoroughly tested designs to get something rigid enough without adding unnecessary weight.
The AVID B5 / B5M Aluminum Steering Bellcranks are machined from billet 7075-T6 (Left) and 6061-T6 (Right) aluminum alloy, black anodized, and silver edge highlights for that premium look. Each package includes 1 left and 1 right bellcrank and 2 aluminum crush tubes for the steering rack bearings on all B5 based vehicles (e.g. B5, B5M, T5M, & SC5M).
The B5 / B5M Aluminum Steering Bellcranks are a must-have upgrade for any serious racer. These aluminum bellcranks eliminate flex in the steering system for maximum steering feel.
Assemble the steering rack by placing a crush tube on each side between the two bearings and for added protection it is recommended that you use blue thread lock on the BH screws going through the steering rack into the bellcranks.
Material: Billet 7075-T6 (Left) and 6061-T6 (Right).
