Associated SC8.2e Ready-To-Run truck

Team Associated have introduced a Ready-To-Run version of their SC8.2e 1:8 scale electric off road race truck. Modeled after Robby Wood’s short-course race truck as raced in the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series, the SC8.2e RTR takes the next evolutionary step in Team Associated’s 1:8 scale short-course line by adding the new performance suspension developed on their ROAR National Championship-winning RC8.2 buggy. It includes high-performance features like the XP SC1300-BL brushless electronic speed control with Deans Ultra Plug and a powerful Reedy 2000kv brushless motor. Also included is the XP 2.4GHz radio system with the high-torque S2008MG metal-gear servo that provides clean and consistent control.

Traxxas Slayer Pro 4X4

Traxxas have updated their Slayer chassis with the release of the Pro 4×4 version. Based on the previous and very successful Slayer, this latest version features a new chassis and wishbones that give it a 30mm longer wheelbase and 26mm wider track than the original car. Now with a 10% larger footprint, this car’s new longer wheelbase chassis and wide track stance deliver enhanced stability in rough conditions and radically improved high speed cornering. Extreme TRX 3.3 power punches hard and revs fast to rip past the competition and the amazing Revo-Spec linkage-based suspension and hard-anodized GTR shocks deliver seemingly bottomless suspension travel that simulates the handling and jumping ability of full-size Pro 4X4 trucks. Slayer Pro 4X4’s new bodywork and officially licensed BF Goodrich or Kumho tires bring together scale looks and 50+mph performance for all-day fun, excitement, and competition.
