RC10B5M Champions Edition

RC10B5M Champions Edition

1:10 scale 2WD off road has been Team Associated's signature racing class ever since the release of the original RC10 in 1984. The Team Associated RC10 buggy series has won twelve IFMAR World Championships since the racing class began in 1985.

Team Associated's drivers race on many types of tracks around the world, and they need to be ready for all of them. So we've developed the limited edition B5M Champions Edition kit, packing it with options that allow you to tune your buggy to win on your own track. We've borrowed the secret 5-point checklist that Spencer Rivken, 2015 1:10 2WD IFMAR World Champion, and Ryan Cavalieri, who is the only racer to have won five ROAR Nationals in one year, have successfully used, and incorporated their speed secrets into one box.

The new B5M Champions Edition includes the most popular tuning options available. By including both 3- and 4-gear transmissions, flat and gullwing front suspension arms, and single pad and VTS slipper solutions, this is the most tunable car Team Associated has ever made. Strength, longevity and style have been improved by including carefully selected option parts the Team uses each week to tame the ever-changing tracks around the world. The B5M Champions Edition lets you master speed, weight, steering, and traction out of the box.
