Team Associated RC8B4 & B4e Team kit

Team Associated have released their new RC8B4 and B4e 1/8th buggies. Innovative front-end geometry with reduced kingpin inclination steering blocks places the wheel pivot in the centre of the front tire for increased stability and consistent steering through the entire steering throw. New gearboxes are specific to front and rear, with the front gearbox featuring a 3.5 deg. inclined pinion gear angle to straighten the centtr driveshaft for increased drivetrain efficiency and reduced phasing and vibration. The rear gearbox features a 0 deg. pinion gear angle and centre mounted rear chassis brace mount. A new front upper suspension arm design is designed to accommodate a wide range of flex and stiffness options with optional inserts to be made available for fine tuning flex and stiffness and will fit on the top or bottom of the arm. The arms also includes a moulded ‘wing’ insert for increased front-end downforce. There is also a new rear suspension and front lower suspension arm design too. A new rear wing mount has adjustable wing angle shims, significant strength improvements, an aerodynamic shape and extra clearance for shock position adjustment. The rear wing itself has more vertical fins for increased straight-line stability, a taller rear wickerbill height for increased downforce, increased strength in various areas to reduce bending fatigue and dimples on the backside as a template for cutout holes. Other updates include the rear chassis brace, new +1mm offset rear hub and for the gas version, a new fuel tank with many new features.
