1:8 Scale Electric 4WD Off Road Competition Buggy Kit

Team Associated has taken the performance engineering developed for the RC8B3 nitro buggy and used the data to create our new brushless-powered version, the RC8B3e Team Kit!

Answering the need of the fastest-growing 1:8 scale racing class, the RC8B3e Team Kit was designed specifically for brushless power. Using a unique, proprietary hard-anodized 7075-T6 aluminum chassis ingeniously designed for optimum weight distribution and superior handling, the RC8B3e drives like a champ.

Cross-class chassis compatibility. Knowing that racers would be competing in both 1:8 nitro and electric at the same events, the RC8B3e was designed to handle and respond to changes just like the RC8B3. This similar handling characteristic gives the racer a huge advantage, as tuning changes can be applied to both buggies seamlessly.

Designed to handle, built to win. The RC8B3e Team Kit was designed to give the dedicated electric 1:8 racer the highest level of performance that will help take your racing program to the next level.

Magazine Review
The RC8B3 nitro car enjoyed a long and rigorous development process, and that refinement put Team Associated well ahead to develop a competitive e-buggy. While the RC8B3e shares much of its parts list with the nitro buggy, it's no conversion. The weight distribution and power delivery of an electric car require different suspension settings, and Associated has tuned the car to suit. Where new parts were required to support electric power, Associated has stepped up with optimized designs, including a completely electric-specific chassis. The podium is calling, and the new RC8B3e is a potent contender. -- Radio Control Car Action, March 2016
