Red RC has more pics now...
http://www.redrc.net/2010/02/associa...it/#more-28271





Looks like the same car as the SC18, but with different shells. The arms, knuckles, towers, shocks, everything outwards from the diffs look like the RC18 stuff (which isn't necessarily a bad thing, considering the aftermarket support).

Looks like a better buggy/truck than the original RC18's (but then so are Duratraxs and Xrays).

On the Team Associated site, they have a PDF download. It says March 2010 (which could mean a week or a month and a week from now).

It's actually 1 kit for both the truck and buggy, and has all the parts including bodies, wheels and tires (4 fat tires, 2 thin ones) for both, so you just choose which to build. It should prove very popular for places where they have both classes of racing.

I'm not sure about an FT kit coming as these already seem to have the blue shocks. What's more likely is RTRs in the future.

What I hated the most about the old RC18 was the ridiculously short rod ends (came with the tie rod upgrade). These new ones look much longer, so I'm glad that got fixed.

Shucks, the more I look, the more I feel like I'll be getting one!

I think they are trying to get them out at least two weeks before Nationals so they can run in the stock class. Trying.

Edit: And sim, its not the same as the sc18. Its has more. The Slipper is included.

Edit Edit: And it looks like they now have the arms with sway bar attachment areas.

Talk about an announcement that doesn't surprise anybody.

The only part that surprised me is that the kit will offer parts for both the B and the T. That's a catch 22. It's cool to have the extra parts to do the conversion, but at the same time it will raise the price a little bit.

Sorry. You're right. I guess the SC18 out now is the RTR and this B2/T2 kit is the team kit.

I kind of feel the same way coz I'm a buggy guy myself. My truck lid would remain unpainted, I think.

I'd love to see Associated release an RC18R2 With a longer wheelbase, the bodies should be a bit more scale-like.

Thats my plan exactly! I have a SC18 on back order from my LHS and am going to do that when it comes in to see what it will do on our local carpet track.
