New Team Associated Parts for the RC8 Series


The first new items for the RC8 are these lightweight spur and diff ring gears. Part number #89495, the light spur gear fits only the nitro versions of the like the RC8, RC8.2, RC8B and RC8T. Part numbers #89492, #89493 and #89494 works with all electric and nitro versions of the RC8s and RC8Ts such as the RC8, RC8.2, RC8.2e, RC8B, RC8Be, RC8T and RC8Te.


Secondly for Team Associated’s 16mm Big Bore shocks are these precision-machined, tapered Delrin pistons. Extensively track-tested and race-proven by AE’s racing team over the course of the 2010-2011 season, TQ’ing multiple rounds at the World Championships in Thailand. The team set out to improve over the ten 1.1mm piston set-up with damping characteristics that also excelled when the track got bumpy. Extensive testing showed that by drilling out five of the ten holes to a larger hole, the damping provided the best of both situations. The larger 1.2mm or 1.3mm allow for better low speed damping over bumps, while still keeping the great smooth track handling characteristics of the smaller 1.1 hole set-ups. The five 1.1mm and five 1.2mm are standard kit equipment for RC8.2 and RC8.2e models.
