Team Associated RC8B4.1e Team Kit


The next evolution of the RC8B4 eBuggy is upon us. The heart of the buggy is the new RWB/FWB adjustable weight bias chassis design.

The next evolution of the RC8B4 eBuggy is upon us. Team Associated engineers sought to lower the CG and weight and improve handling on un-groomed outdoor tracks. The heart of the buggy is the new RWB/FWB adjustable weight bias chassis design. The innovative system allows the driver to run either configuration with the motor rearward for more traction, or shift the center diff and flip the center dogbones to run motor forward for more steering.

The suspension is overhauled with new front and rear low-CG shock towers and shorter shocks, along with new 3-hole rear suspension arms that allow for softer shock and spring while still maintaining support in the fast turns. The new wide base rear hubs come in three fixed axle heights and use 3mm carbon fiber hub towers to allow several different geometry options.

Lastly, the buggy comes with 92mm universal joints, 44/13 bevel gears, and a 46T molded spur gear for the most grip and smoothest power delivery on un-groomed outdoor tracks.
