New Team Brood Carbon Fiber Idler Gear Brace

New Products



Press Release From Team Brood:

Team Brood Racing is excited to announce the launch of their latest product: the Carbon Fiber Transmission Brace Kit, designed specifically for the Team Associated B7 2WD Buggy. This new kit addresses the increased flex on the left side of the transmission case caused by the thickening of the motor plate from 3mm to 5mm on the right side, which has led to a higher incidence of idler gear failures compared to the B6 series of buggies.

Our Carbon Fiber Transmission Brace Kit is a straightforward, bolt-on performance upgrade that requires no permanent modifications to your buggy. Crafted from high-grade 1.5mm thick carbon fiber and precision CNC cut, the brace is engineered to match the stiffness of the right side of the transmission case, effectively eliminating the flex that causes idler gear failures.

Racers who tested our prototype kits reported multiple idler gear failures prior to installation. Post-installation, the failure rate dropped to nearly zero, demonstrating the kit's effectiveness in enhancing the durability and performance of the B7 buggy.

The kit includes three of our 6061 ball stud washers, available in various colors, to ensure the brace sits on a flat, level surface. To accommodate the brace and ball stud washers, screw length must be increased from 16mm to 20mm. We provide three M3x20mm button head screws in the kit, but users can opt for their own screws, including titanium screws. Please note that screws longer than 20mm should not be used.

Kit Includes:

  • 1 x 1.5mm Thick Carbon Fiber Brace
  • 1 x 1.5mm Thick Ball Stud Washer
  • 2 x 2.75mm Thick Ball Stud Washers
  • 3 x M3 20mm Long Button Head Screws
