Under the Hood: Dustin Evan’s B64D 4WD Buggy

Under the Hood: Dustin Evan’s B64D 4WD Buggy

Many of the Factory Team Drivers of Team Associated are debuting the new, highly anticipated B64D 4WD buggy at the 2017 Reedy Off-Road Race of Champions going on right now and we were fortunate enough to peak under newly signed Dustin Evan’s personal car. Sporting Reedy electronics, the buggy is already showing impressive speed and Dustin is feeling very confident with it. Will he carry that building speed in to racing is yet to be seen, but the 2011 Reedy Race Champion has the skills to back it up and when he feels confident, big things happen. Let’s take a closer look.

Evan's B64D is showing great speed and although he's had very limited time with it, his changes are rather minor.

  1. Associated are grasping at straws with this car,the TLR 22-4 is such a better car and it shows.

  2. That’s a nice Xray…I mean associated. I am waiting for the Tekno to come out

  3. It looks to be similar in design to the car that recently won the worlds in Japan!

  4. Bold statement on a car that’s new and not a revamp of a twenty year old design, give me the 2017 model
