The Avid Triad Direct Drive allows stock racers to remove the entire clutch assembly for conditions where the driver feels having less rotating mass and zero slip except from the differential is beneficial. Avid accomplished this by removing all the plates and pads as well as the steel spring with a minimalist design done in aluminum. The DD Plate is hard anodized for strength and the DD Post is gutted for weight removal for a grand total of 0.8g. For B5M owners, there is also an included M4 Aluminum Flanged Locknut to remove even more weight if you are using the stock steel nut.

  • Not for everyone, some stock drivers have found benefits using the system due to the removal of rotating mass
  • Direct Drive and Post weigh 0.8g
  • Works with our wide range of Triad spur gears
  • Includes Direct Drive Plate, Post, M4 Aluminum Nut, and Decal

Compatibility Note:

  • Team Associated (B5, B5M, T5M, and SC5M)
    • Direct fit
  • TLR (22, 22T, and 22 SCT)
    • Direct fit - requires you use the kit red spring washer and slipper nut
  • Kyosho (RB6 and RB5)

I thought this would be lighter than the exotek slipper eliminator but it's actually not. You need to use one of the stock steel slipper plates (at least on the b6 and b6d). This makes it heavier than the exotek. Also, the exotek is compatible with ae spur gears. The avid is not. Thought this would be a great product but it is not what I expected.

These work very well. Very light weight and allow the use of the Avid Triad spur gears. It is also compatible with the Schelle Nova Spur gears as well.
