JConcepts – B6 | B6D Elephant Trunk Style Waterfall
JConcepts has added a new item to the Shapeways store for B6 | B6D owners using a laydown transmission. The Elephant Trunk style waterfall replaces the stock unit and is more flexible than the stock piece. Given today’s racing and the desire for more traction while utilizing the laydown transmission, JConcepts spent design time and racer time with top racers for an alternative without giving up on stock mounting locations or geometry.
The item is being offered in the Shapeways store as an early option to team drivers and consumers racing the Team Associated B6 or B6D.
About this Product:
JConcepts offers a water fall for the B6 | B6D line of vehicles with laydown transmission. The Elephant Truck design uses a single column support which promotes flex characteristics giving traction gains associated with these types of adjustments. The mount splits at the bottom to attach using the stock B6 hardware and uses the same pivot ball at the top making it a snap to install.
The Elephant Trunk waterfall has already shown success in the hands of Alex Kosciuszek during the JConcepts Indoor National Finals event by running the single fastest qualifying run over 5 minutes at the Speed RC track located in Mooresville, NC.
