The B6D is Team Associated’s next-gen competition 2WD buggy. It’s seen some major updates over the B5 series and comes in two flavors; a carpet version (B6) and a dirt version (B6D). Both are similar in design but each has been optimized for their specific surface.
CompetitionX was lucky enough to get their hands on a B6D complete with a full Reedy setup. I’ll also be installing a Futaba receiver so I can take control with my trusty 4PX transmitter.
So grab a drink and get your tools as we take this buggy from bags to build in this detailed online assembly.
