Team Associated RC8T Factory Team Championship Edition Truggy Kit

Team Associated RC8T Factory Team Championship Edition Truggy Kit
Vince - Rating: 4 of 5 Stars! Tuesday, May 01, 2012
I had an electric version of CE. It was really fun to drive. Handled great. Good jumper, stable and very easy to drive. Parts are pretty cheap and are readily available. Great suspension. The AE shocks are really good. The hubs use larger size bearings, which I understand is a good thing. It's got a million different suspension tuning options, so you can dial it in on any surface. There are some things to keep in mind though. If you run electric, be wary of the old stock blue motor mount. It's terrible. It also doesn't provide enough clearance for a truggy motor. I would junk it and get a better one, like the one from EliteRCD. If you do keep it, you will need more "shims" under the center diff to provide the clearance. The RC8T also has one almost fatal flaw. The front/rear CVA's. They can bend very easily from hard impacts. They are positioned a little too far into the out drives, so a hard impact can jam them in. With nowhere to go, they bend. This was the single most annoying "flaw" of the truck for me. CVA's are expensive and I resented having to buy them too many times. In comparison, I have rarely bent CVA's in any other car, so it's not my driving. Overall, though, the RC8T is a bit more fragile than I expected. Broke a shock shaft, bent some hing pins, snapped a few turnbuckles, etc. Certainly not the worst durability, but I expected better. I'm a smooth driver and don't wreck a lot. Still, it's a good car and I wouldn't try and talk anyone out of buying one. I would just make sure they know what to expect.
