The Team Associated RC8 B3e Team Kit combines RC8B3 nitro buggy performance engineering with a chassis designed specifically for brushless power. Using a unique, proprietary hard-anodized 7075-T6 aluminum chassis designed for optimum weight distribution and superior handling, the RC8B3e drives like a champ.

Cross-class chassis compatibility
Knowing that racers would be competing in both 1:8 nitro and electric at the same events, the RC8B3e was designed to handle and respond to changes just like the RC8B3. This similar handling characteristic gives the racer a huge advantage, as tuning changes can be applied to both buggies seamlessly.

Designed to handle, built to win
The RC8B3e Team Kit was designed to give the dedicated electric 1:8 racer the highest level of performance that will help take your racing program to the next level.

  • 7075-T6 hard anodized aluminum chassis features an optimized weight bias layout for improved handling and stability

Team Associated RC8 B3e Team 4WD 1/8 Electric Buggy Kit
Decided to try Associated again after switching to Tekno and then Kyosho,both of witch I really liked but never really had alot of good results with so back to Associated,all I can say about this car is it awsome it has great steering into the turns,and is hooked up coming out of the turns,it jumps great,and lands great,and is great on a bumpy track.It went straight from the work bench to the track for its first race,and I took the TQ and the A-Main win on its first day at the track maybe it was just luck,but man this thing just works.
