One of the most popular racing segments continues to be electric 1:8 off-road. The next top challenger is the RC8T3.2e! The latest evolution of Team Associated's 1:8 electric truck is born with race winning heritage in its DNA.
The RC8T3.2e shares many of its updated features with its nitro counterpart, the RC8T3.2. The Area 51 engineers increased the length of the suspension arms to utilize the narrow arm mounts from the RC8B3.2 for increased traction and stability. Bottom-loaded suspension arm inserts provide adjustable flex and increase durability, while keeping the arms free of debris and easy to clean. A rear shock tower has been developed to work with the suspension arm geometry.
A 3-piece center bulkhead allows for easy access to the center differential and makes adjustments even faster. Updated shock caps allow the RC8T3.2e to be run with the included stiff bladders, optional standard bladders, or as emulsion with no bladders; all with the same cap. The side guards have also been improved by using countersunk screws that thread into the chassis from the top of the truck, which greatly improves alignment to the chassis.
The RC8 platform was born with the Team Associated "Champions by Design" heritage and we designed the RC8T3.2e to continue dominating the competition!
