Team Associated RC8T3 Team Kit


Taking all of the performance engineering developed for the RC8B3 nitro and RC8B3e electric buggies, Team Associated have finally announced their new nitro powered truggy, the RC8T3 Team Kit. Sharing many parts with the RC8B3, offering the perfect solution for multi-class racers, it uses a unique proprietary hard anodized 7075-T6 aluminium chassis specifically designed for optimum weight distribution and superior handling, making the RC8T3 drives like a champ. The RC8T3 has received an updated suspension that features a pillow-ball front upright for maximum steering and durability. Refined 16mm Big Bore hard-anodized aluminium threaded shocks and 3.5mm alloy shock shafts provide plush suspension travel, while precision universal drive shafts front and rear keep suspension travel free through the entire stroke.
