It was kind of a shocker when we first heard that Team Associated was working on a new 4wd platform to replace the B64. Despite a few gripes about the B64 on carpet and turf, the results kind of speak for themselves as the B64 was capable of winning a lot of races on dirt. However, AE decided it they didn’t want to settle and a mediocre 4wd so they went ahead and put forth the time, money, and effort to deliver a new car that was a better, all-around wheeler.
Since the new B74 platform has quite a bit of carbon fiber and aluminum parts, we were excited to design upgrades that carry our unique style and high-quality parts we’re known for. From back to front, we’ll go through the list so that you can get up to date with the latest accessories from JConcepts.
Let’s start off with the B74 specific Front Scoop. As the original creators of the 4wd/8th scale front scoop, we definitely had to follow up with a front scoop for the B74. This is a popular add-on no matter your skill level. It stays protected and adds front end grip and smoothness to your car with very little $$.
Of course, the Carbon Fiber Front Shock Tower was a must and yes, we added JConcepts’ original styling and touches to all of the JConcepts carbon. The front tower is 4mm thick and features reinforced ribs for added strength and a chamfered leading edge to help eliminate cracking and splitting of the carbon fiber laminate. The shock and camber location is the same as the OEM piece.
The JConcepts CF Front Top-Deck is a prime example of the beautiful aesthetic style that JConcepts adds to every piece we make. The CF Front Body Mount also looks fantastic and adds a nice touch to the overall package with the same unified style.
A few smaller pieces that are very visible to the overall appearance of the B74 is the Carbon Fiber Hanging Servo Mount and CF Bell-Crank Arm. Despite having small footprints, these two pieces play an important role in controlling your steering and are purpose-built for durability and reliability.
Chillin at the center of the B74 is the JConcepts Carbon Fiber Center Top Plate. The ribbed section is very pronounced carrying a sleek look and aggressive profile. The quality is top-notch and looks way more style than the stock piece.
Securing the battery down but being able to adjust where it sits has been a popular tuning feature on these current-gen 4wds. The CF Battery Brace features the JConcepts treatment of ribbed sections and chamfered edges on the surface of the exotic material using the stock mounting pattern.
The last two carbon pieces for the B74 is the CF Rear Body Mount and CF Rear Tower. These lightweight parts are made from genuine Carbon Fiber material that’s known to be lightweight, stiff, and stylish.
One of the coolest upgrades we’ve come out with is the JConcepts Fin Titanium Turnbuckle set. Made specific for different models, these have been a hit and now they’re available in black! Just when you thought cool couldn’t get any cooler. Grab yours now before we’re out!
Protecting your chassis is always a bonus and the easiest way to do that is using the JConcepts Chassis Protective Sheet. Removable and re-usable this isn’t your ordinary chassis protector as you can take it off and on when doing serious wrench work.
