As tires, motors, batteries, and tracks evolve, Team Associated adapts and improves with every iteration of the RC10. The engineers at Team Associated's Area 51 set out to extract more performance from the RC10B74 4WD buggy platform with the introduction of the RC10B74.2 and RC10B74.2D. Our goals were to reduce overall weight, lower the center of gravity, and improve jump and bump handling. We exceeded expectations.
The RC10B74.2 and RC10B74.2D introduce molded gearboxes front and rear, which lower the center of gravity by removing weight from high points of the car. We modified the differentials to improve rolling speed through turns and increase stability on landings, allowing the buggy to corner faster on high-grip carpet and clay tracks. The latest 13mm big bore shock technology from Team Associated is included, taking the RC10B74.2 to the next level in jump and bump handling performance. The introduction of gull wing front suspension arms and the inclusion of the LTC gear sets for the differentials make the RC10B74.2 platform easier and more predictable to drive on any track condition.

RC10B74.2 Team Kit Features
New lightweight molded gearboxes front and rear:
Two fixed height front gearboxes allowing 0 and +2mm diff height options
One rear gearbox with RC10B6-style inserts allowing 0, +1, +2, and +3mm diff height options
New 13mm big-bore threaded aluminum shocks and springs with machined shock pistons for improved bump and jump handling
New gull wing front suspension arms and mating shock tower for lower center of gravity and better steering predictability
LTC differential gear sets are included. That reduce binding under power, giving more predictable power delivery
New battery hold-down system uses inserts to adjust weight bias. O-ring style battery strap with pull tabs
New larger 3.5mm turnbuckles with updated rod end style ballcups to increase durability and reduce bind in the suspension
New center bulkhead fan mount that mounts the fan above the motor for better cooling performance
New -2mm wing mounts for use with slicks and low-profile carpet tires to further lower the center of gravity
+3mm aluminum steering rack for optimized bump steer at low ride heights
66mm Rear CVA drive shafts and axles for more on-power traction and more predictable driving feel
For the RC10B74.2: 2-pad high-load, high-capacity center slipper clutch with LCF pad material
