Nice!

So is the consensus that the early B2 has 2-hole rear arms and later B2s went to three-hole? I have two sets of B2 arms and they are both 3-hole.

Interestingly enough I have three B3s at home including my original B3 Factory Team and all three have 2-hole rear arms.

Seems odd that Team Associated would have gone from 2-hole to 3-hole and then back to 2-hole for the B3. Does anyone know of 3-hole rear arms for the B3?

Im not really sure on all the variations of the b2 between early and late since it was such a short run of the car.

So i installed the new 2 hole b2 arms today then fixed a leaky shock and cleaned mold release off of the tires and re installed. Looks good and my esc should be here tommorow. What besides Reedy Sonic would be a period correct motor for this?

The B2 manual lists quite a few motors available at the time...all Reedy of course, but there are a bunch.

Yup. And of course, there were non-Reedy brands available at the time also, I'm just not that familiar with the dates they were released. I'd love to see a database of vintage motors and when they were released. Lot of work though, there were tons of them.
The pink Trinity Monster Stock Jr Part 2 came out just before the B2...

Hi Mike,

You can get electronic copies of the B2 manuals here https://www.teamassociated.com/cars_and_trucks/RC10B2/Team/manuals_setups/.

However, I wouldn't mind getting my hands on a hard copy of the manual as well :mrgreen:

You looking for circa 1996 Trinity motors? I'll see what I have magazine wise laying around and scan in any motor ads I find.
