This is the Team Associated RC8B3 Team 4WD Off-Road Nitro Buggy Kit. To be competitive in the ultra competitive class of 1/8 scale nitro racing, manufacturers need to be willing to continually adapt and evolve their vehicles, or fall behind to obscurity. Knowing this fact well, the engineers of Area 51 designed the RC8B3 Team Kit to be a winner in every aspect, from the build, to maintenance, and ultimately, racing.
Completely designed from the ground up.
The RC8B3 starts with a hard-anodized 7075-T6 aluminum chassis designed for optimum weight distribution, ground clearance, and better overall handling. As a result, the RC8B3 Team Kit changes directions faster, and is more compliant and stable in rough terrain.
World class suspension package.
The RC8B3 has received an updated suspension that features a pillow-ball front upright for maximum steering and durability. Refined 16mm Big Bore hard-anodized aluminum threaded shocks and 3.5mm alloy shock shafts provide plush suspension travel. The RC8B3 features precision universal drive shafts front and rear to keep suspension travel free through the entire stroke.
Designed to handle – built to win.
The RC8B3 was designed by 1/8 scale racers for 1/8 scale racers, and delivers high performance that will help put you on the podium.
