Team Associated RC8T Review
Team Associated is proud to bring to you the Factory Team RC8T, a 1:8th scale full-blown racing truggy based on the successful RC8 platform! Like the Factory Team RC8 buggy before it, the highlyanticipated RC8T will raise the performance bar for 1:8th nitro truggies.
Strength, durability, maximum corner speeds and rough track handling were the key design elements Area 51 worked into the RC8T. Drivers will experience unparalleled and effortless “pop” as they launch from the jumps. Landings will be plush beyond belief due to the enhanced suspension that other truggies can only dream of.
From the correctly balanced and optimized weight distribution, silky smooth and reliable ‘Big Bore’ shocks featuring 4mm gold shafts, innovative clutch design, to the machined chassis, every inch of the RC8T screams high performance and durability. There will be no question to why the Factory Team RC8T will be the truggy of choice at the highest levels of competition.
