This is the Associated RC10B5 1/10 scale 2WD Electric Factory Team Buggy Kit.
Since the release of the original RC10 in 1984, 1/10 scale 2WD off road has been Associated's signature racing class. The Associated RC10 buggy series has won eleven I.F.M.A.R. World Championships since the racing class began in 1985.
The Associated RC10B5 was built on a newly designed narrow tub chassis that keeps the mass balanced and centralized, improving overall performance and rough track handling. Factory Team parts like VTS slipper clutch and 12mm Big Bore threaded shocks come standard in the B5 Team Kit!
