Associated RC8FT Electric LE Kit

For a limited time only, Team Associated is offering their RC8 Factory Team kit including the eConversion kit and Factory Team 16mm ‘Big Bore’ shocks, making for the ultimate electric-powered 1:8 scale buggy. Normally you would have to buy the gas buggy and eConversion separately, which would see you left with parts you don’t need, like the fuel tank and clutch. With this kit, that’s not the case.
