RC8B3.2 Nitro 1/8 Off-Road Buggy Team Kit

1:8 scale nitro off road racing is one of RC's most challenging disciplines of racing - it requires attention to detail and demands the highest of standards from equipment. Here to answer the call is Team Associated's RC8B3.2 Team Kit! The RC8B3.2 is set to push the boundaries of the accolades accumulated by the RC8B3.1:

2018 I.F.M.A.R. World Championship, Perth, Australia -- Davide Ongaro
2019 ROAR National Championship, Hutto, Texas -- Spencer Rivkin
2019 RCGP Series Championship -- Davide Ongaro
2019 Italian Nitro Championship -- Davide Ongaro

The engineers of Area 51 Design Works focused on key components that improved durability, accelerated maintenance, and expanded upon its race-winning heritage within the RC8B3 platform. A suspension arm design features bottom-loaded inserts to adjust flex characteristics. The rear suspension arm length has been increased while reducing the arm mount width to improve performance in all conditions. A 4-piece center bulkhead allows for easier access to the center differential, making adjustments even faster.

The radio tray design features an enclosed battery box, a larger receiver box, integrated switch and transponder mounting, and adjustable flex configurations. Updated shock caps allow the RCB3.2 to be run with the included stiff bladders, standard bladders, or as emulsion with no bladders - all with the same cap. The RC8B3 platform was born with Team Associated "Champion by Design" heritage and the RC8B3.2 plans to continue dominating the 1:8 scale off road racing scene!
