RC8e 1:8 Scale 4WD Electric Buggy Kit

Team Associated is proud to release the RC8e, a 1:8 scale electric powered competition buggy kit based on the championship winning RC8 platform!

The RC8e engineering team has developed a practical design that incorporates the same exceptional strength, durability, cornering capability, jumping ability, and rough track handling that characterize the nitro powered RC8.

 

With special features such as a hard anodized machined chassis, correctly balanced and optimized weight distribution, composite “Big Bore” shocks featuring 4mm gold shafts, upgraded steering system, and exclusive body design, every inch of the RC8e screams high-performance and durability. In fact, the RC8e has already proven itself as a top competitor with a 1st Place finish in its debut event!

 

Enjoying the awesome performance, convenience, and cleanliness of electric power has never been easier!
