This is the radio controlled, glow powered, 1/8 scale RC8B3.1 Team buggy kit from Team Associated. Some of the new features that differ from the RC8B include; new 4-shoe clutch, H.T.C. (High Torque Capacity) differentials, revised suspension arm pivots for more ground clearance, anti-roll linkage curves altered for more chassis support, new shock springs, and Pro-Line Predator body. In the hyper-competitive world of 1:8 scale nitro off-road racing one has to evolve and adapt or get left in the dust. Knowing this fact well, the engineers of Area 51 designed the RC8B3.1 Team Kit to be a winner in every aspect, from the build to maintenance and ultimately racing.
World class drive-train and suspension package. The RC8B3.1 features new H.T.C. (High Torque Capacity) differentials with increased fluid capacity and a more consistent feel lap after lap. Precision CVA drive shafts are included front and rear to keep suspension travel free through the entire stroke, and power transfer is provided by an all-new, easy-to-maintain, 4-shoe clutch. The RC8B3.1 has been thoroughly revamped with all of the performance upgrades that led the AE Factory Team to a stand-out year in the 1:8 category, with multiple wins including a national championship!
The RC8B3.1's suspension and drive-train package are bolted to a hard-anodized 7075-T6 aluminum chassis designed for optimum weight distribution, ground clearance, and better overall handling. As a result, the RC8B3.1 Team Kit changes directions faster and is more compliant and stable in rough terrain. All of these improvements resulted in a car that is easier to drive, more consistent lap after lap, and suits a wider variety of tracks.
Designed to handle, built to win. The RC8B3.1 was designed by 1:8 scale racers for 1:8 scale racers, and delivers high performance that will help put you on the podium.
