After nearly a week of teasers on various social media websites, Team Associated has officially announced the new vehicles that they have been leading up to: the RC10B6 and RC10B6D!  While the social media teasers have made it quite clear that a 2WD was the focal point of the teasers, many thought this would be just a new revision of the B5 platform.  History has shown a near 10 year interval between platform changes from Team Associated, so the B6/B6D is a welcome surprise to many AE fans.  See the official press release and photos below:

Champions by design. 1:10 scale 2WD off road has been Team Associated's signature class since the release of the RC10 in 1984. The Team Associated RC10 buggy series has won 12 of the 16 I.F.M.A.R. World Championships contested since the racing class began. In fact, every Team Associated 2WD buggy platform ever released has won at least one I.F.M.A.R. World Championship!

Divide and conquer! In today's racing, traction dictates your setup -- period! With both B6 and B6D configurations available, getting to the top of the podium has never been easier. Out of the box, the B6 offers racers a setup developed for high to very-high traction, whereas the B6D excels when traction is low to high. Racing at multiple tracks, or where traction changes throughout the day, has never been easier; setups and tuning parts are interchangeable between the two configurations, making the B6 platform extremely versatile. Both versions come with the speed, durability and lineage expected of a true champion. Choose the configuration that suits your track and conquer the competition!
