Team Associated RC8 T3.1e Team 1/8 4WD Off-Road Electric Truggy Kit
I bought this truggy (NEW) on Ebay really cheap! The build is quick and fast. Very good part quality. Ran it for the first time at my local track and just 12 seconds behind the leader, got in second. Turns on a dime like insane. Very smooth and powerful. In comparison from the b83 and b83e the part quality was horrible and broke very easily. This new 3.1 version is a huge improvement. Parts are cheap. For anyone who is on a low budget, this is the truggy or buggy for you.

Team Associated RC8 T3.1e Team 1/8 4WD Off-Road Electric Truggy Kit
Very nice kit. I am a local racer and this was my second new kit. I am a previous Tekno guy and there are clearly differences. As far as the build went it was straight forward and the instructions were clear and easy to follow. There was one illustration that wasn't clear but if you have any history repairing RC's it can be figured out. My only complaint in the build is that the mud guards use 2 different size screws which doesn't make sense to me. There are a few reasons I switched one of which is the ease of access to the diffs. and the pillow ball steering turns very sharp. The The shocks are easy to build and the kit has held up to my bad driving.(I get marshaled a lot). The only break I have had on this is the steering rack bent which was easily straightened and put back in. I would recommend this Truggy to anyone who is in the market.

The RC8T3.1e went together like a dream. Had it together in two afternoons. Including electronics. Drove it the same weekend in a points race drove like it was on rails. Took 3rd place in the points event Shared by two local tracks Labor Day weekend. First time driving a Truggy. Price is good and build went smooth, I would recommend this kit.
