Exchange Programs

Team Associated and Reedy Exchange Program

Do you have lots of old RC gear lying around? You can send in your working or non-working engine, radio system, speed control, motor, starter box, or servo FROM ANY MANUFACTURER and exchange it towards the purchase of brand new Team Associated or Reedy equipment.

The items you send in do not have to function at all. (Cut wires, missing connectors, and failed engines are okay!)

All major components must be sent in, though. (Example: Engine needs to include piston/sleeve, connecting rod, carb, and head assembly).

Exchange and Upgrade

Rules and conditions for the Team Associated and Reedy Upgrade Exchange Program:
