Team Associated RC8.2 – Build Report – Bag A – Chassis Assembly
The Bag A consists on the installation of the side mud guards. On the RC8.2, the mud guards have been modified and shortened. Only two screws are now required to install them compared to the three screws from the previous kits. The shorter mud guards help to reduce the overall weight of the buggy without scarifying performance or durability.
The new mud guards are easier to install. The screw holes align perfectly with the holes in the chassis. This was not the case with the previous versions of the RC8 buggy. The channel used for the fuel lines is still present. The chassis has been lengthened by 3mm for better traction and handling.
In this step, you must also install the two aluminum steering posts. Installation is very easy; just don’t forget to apply blue thread lock onto the screws.
