Battery braces are a highly visual and critical part of any electric R/C vehicle. They provide the security of the main power source as well as provide a look and feel to each vehicle. The braces also provide users a quick way of accessing and performing a battery change or routine maintenance to the vehicle. The carbon fiber battery brace by JConcepts is highly functional and aesthetic eye-candy, designed from genuine 2.5mm Carbon Fiber, it performs as good as it looks. With so much variety in today's batteries and with most vehicles having a flexible mounting position forward and aft, functionality is always a top priority.
With the new battery brace, running different battery positions is possible while maintaining the necessary terminal clearance and providing a healthy holding force to keep everything in tact even in the most demanding conditions or the inevitable crash. The brace includes hardware for fitment to each battery possible with four 3x10mm BHSC and 4 plastic locknuts. The shape, combined with exotic material and surface finish, tops off an all important look to the vehicle from the inside out.
Carbon Fiber is a conductive material, always neatly route the wiring and keep terminals as far away as possible from material. Running battery terminals in a position where they have the most clearance gives that all important peace of mind and is highly recommended.

JConcepts has added a new item to the Shapeways store for B6 | B6D owners. The thumb bumper provides a little detailed cut-out for the racer who likes to get a grip off the track. 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 replacement rear bumper for the B6 | B6D vehicles. The 3D printed bumper is unique in shape offering a thumb space which makes picking up the vehicle easier or generally a little more user friendly. The tucked design still maintains minimal drag area and is positioned as close to the D-mount as possible. The bumper is an item that helps your vehicle stand out from the crowd and with a little purpose in mind, it also has a handy use.
Tested by Jason Ruona, the new bumper took all the thrills and spills on a vicious triple-jump at a recent Indoor National Series Final in Mooresville, North Carolina.
