Team Associated RC8B3.2 Team Kit 1/8th buggy

Following the introduction of the new RC8B3.2e Team Kit E-buggy, Team Associated also announced the soon release of their new RC8B3.2 Team Kit nitro buggy, the follow-up model to the IFMAR World Championship winning RC8B3.1. The engineers of Area 51 Design Works focused on key components that improved durability, accelerated maintenance, and expanded upon its race-winning heritage within the RC8B3 platform. An all-new suspension arm design improves performance in all conditions: bottom-loaded inserts adjust flex characteristics and longer overall length, with reduced rear arm mount width. A 4-piece centre bulkhead allows for easier access to the center differential, making adjustments even faster. The all-new radio tray design features an enclosed battery box, a larger receiver box, integrated switch and transponder mounting, and adjustable flex configurations. Updated shock caps allow the RCB3.2 to be run with the included new stiff bladders, standard bladders, or as emulsion with no bladders – all with the same cap. The kit is set for a release in May.

Key features:
– Longer rear suspension arm length with narrow rear arm mounts
– New center bulkhead splits and has front/rear specific top halves to prevent brake misalignment
– Enclosed battery box for quick and easy battery removal
– Larger receiver box for better wire management
– One-piece graphite transponder and electronic switch mount
– Flex Control radio tray has three different configurations for chassis flex adjustment
– New stiff shock bladder design improves jumping and handling performance
– Updated shock cap works for bladder or emulsion style shock setups
– Shorter and lower front bumper reduces drag and allows easier access to anti-roll bar screws
– I.F.M.A.R. approved rear wing
– 42T ring and 12T pinion gears on front and rear differentials for improved gear ratios
– Updated chassis with chamfered front edges to reduce drag
– Side guards are now threaded into the chassis from the top side of the car
– 90% parts compatibility with RC8B3.1
