Ruddog Distribution have announced the release of the new RDRP +4mm Aluminium Steering Rack that features a new geometry that greatly reduces unwanted bump steering when running low ride height setups. The +4mm height gain for the inner ball stud mounting points ensures straighter positioned steering links for less toe changes during suspension movement, resulting in more predicable and nimble handling when running the car at low ride heights as it is necessary on carpet indoor or smooth astro turf tracks. In addition the steering rack can also be used when running low ground clearance dirt setups. The part is machined from high-quality 7075-T6 aluminium for strength and it comes black anodised, with machined silver edge details for cool factory looks and to match the remainder of RDRP’s aluminium B74 optionals.
Coming from Revolution Design Racing Products is their new aluminium steering bellcrank set for the Team Associated B74 1/10th 4WD buggy. The set is a direct replacement for the standard composite parts, machined from aircraft-grade 7075-T6 aluminium and it comes black anodised and with machined silver edge details. Using the alloy steering bellcranks over the standard parts adds much needed precision to the steering system while also greatly improving overall durability. The increased overall rigidity will also help with steering emphasis, enhancing the steering feeling especially in high-bite track conditions such as carpet and astro turf.
