RC8Be Factory Team

RC8Be Factory Team

The RC8Be Factory Team kit picks up where the RC8e left off by adding many performance and durability enhancing features that were pioneered by our Area 51 engineers and world-class team of pro drivers.

The new RC8Be features include Factory Team 16mm Big Bore threaded hard-anodized shocks, RC8B 5mm 7075 blue aluminum shock towers, 7075 blue aluminum suspension mounts, Factory Team 7075 blue aluminum one-piece top plate, and Pro-Line M3 Holeshot tires with molded inserts. Pre-assembled shocks, differentials, and turnbuckles help get you on the track fast. Factory Team shock and diff fluids are also included! All of these refinements are what make the Factory Team RC8Be - a potent buggy ready to take your racing to the next level that is pure Associated!

Magazine Reviews
After putting it through the paces, I can see why it's won so many races and is considered one of the leaders in its class. The drivetrain is bulletproof, the handling is crisp and precise, and the styling of the body and wing really make this a complete package. Throw in the Factory Team go-fast-goodies and you have a smokin' deal for around $400.

Team Associated again hits the nail on the head with the Factory Team version of the RC8Be. You'll be hard-pressed to find another buggy on the market as well equipped, well thought out and tunable. The fact that the stock setup is already dialed in is just a bonus. Of course, your mileage may vary, as they say, but with the Team tuning tips in the instruction manual alone, I'm confident that it can be made to work on any track.
