Magazine Review
This kit delivers amazing on-power steering, bump handling, and jumping with the race-developed RC8.2 suspension package. The stock setup out of the box gives you lots of rear traction to find grip on even the most challenging surfaces. The Reedy 121 VS engine is a breeze to get going and delivers explosive low-down torque and a strong mid-range power band with the matching two-chamber tuned pipe. To top it all off, Team Associated has rounded off the package with a very nice 2.4GHz radio system to provide you with glitch-free operation anywhere you run. --RC Driver, Sept. 2013
