Team Associated RC18T2/B2 Truck/Buggy Team Kit
Team Associated RC18T2/B2 Truck/Buggy Team Kit
Rafal Balcerzak - Rating: 2 of 5 Stars! Verified Owner Thursday, November 29, 2012
First of all: if you have previos experience with RC and looking for 1/18 - buy it. But... be prepared for a bit of frustration. This thing after assembly by the book is just impossible to drive. The main thing is the common problem of rubbing between spur and rear diff. Before I bought it I thought it's gonna be something small and all that rumor about it seems unbelievable. It is serious. You'll have to strip plastic collar around the differential otherwise car will be almost impossible to move. Shimming (both; diff and slipper) isn't enough (if you have extra hardware, not in box). I'm quite experienced in RC (have 10 other models in various scales) and I had some difficulties with motor setup. I had to modify holes in the motor holder using rotary tool. Finding one sweet spot when mesh was perfect without rubbing pinion against belt wasn't easy. Whate else: steering Rack and Ackerman plate is a joke. You better order some aluminum one on eBay right away. I wrote some opinions about all the problems with that kit and I was like: "pfff, it's just 1/18, what can be so hard? These guys are some noobs that have no idea what they're doing". I was wrong. All together. If you want to make it your first kit - don't. Not for newbies unless you have some troubleshooting skills in mechanical matter. This kit is a disaster and I'm really surprised Team Associated pushed such a underdeveloped product to the market. After disappointment and bit of frustration, after solving all the problems it is time to drive that thing. And from that point you are rally happy you bought it. It's perfect on the track. Team Associated, I think you gotta fire someone.
