oh quick question how come no one is calling ae "LAZY" for using an existing model where as traxxas got an ear full about it...gotta love biased opinions...
The Slash and Slayer are a completely different class of vehicle than the SC8. Both companies that have two very distinct philosophies when it comes to their vehicles.

I was thinking the same thing; The Slash/Slayer/RC8 comparison is more of an apples to oranges kinda thing even though they look similar.

The Traxxas stuff, as I see it, will get bashers more involved in racing and I would say the RC8 caters more to the racers, but it's RTR? I was hoping for a roller... But on the other side of the coin, the basher market is huge compared to the racer markert, so I can see why it's RTR... eh, whatever... I think it's cool as hell regardless...

yea but the slayer is most likely to be put in the same class as the sc-8 because of the fact it's nitro,4wd, same size etc. I know they are not a race class vehicle like the rc8 oops i mean sc-8. I only made that statement cause people are saying "ohh the slash is in trouble" and im like no it's not two different classes.. now if the ae was a 1/9th scale like the slayer and 2wd electric then that'd be different

The truck WILL have a starter wand. It IS based right of the RC8T platform. NICE!

This is the Team Associated Bully Dog SC8 Short Course Race Truck. The Team Associated SC8 – where scale authenticity and high-performance meet!

This is something that many R/C drivers have only dreamed about, and Team Associated is proud to bring to you the SC8, the first 1:8 scale, nitro 4WD offroad, authentic race truck replicas. Each SC8 comes decked out with one of four fully licensed race truck bodies, wheels and tires, designed to look just like the full size race trucks that run in short course off road series around the country. The world of high-performance R/C has never before seen this level of scale accuracy!

Starting with the championship winning RC8T truggy platform, the SC8 was designed to meet the scale specifications of the full size short course race trucks. It’s all there, from the scale suspension travel, to the roll-cage tube diameter, to the functional mud flaps. The result is the SC8, a creation of an unparalleled scale experience at a level of performance that has never been seen before in true scale.

Underneath the beautifully finished body, roll cage and wheels, beats the heart of a RC8T. The SC8 shares many of the same parts, components, and performance with the RC8T. The SC8 comes fully assembled and ready to go. Team Associated’s Pro.28 engine and XP3D Computerized Digital FM Radio system are factory installed. The differentials and shocks come filled with the proper silicone fluids making it faster and easier than ever to get Team Associated SC8 performance out of the box and into the dirt!

When the designers created the SC8, they knew they had made something very special. Although there may not be a title for the SC8 to compete for upon its release, what Team Associated has seen is how the SC8 instantly wins over the hearts and captures the imaginations of all the people who have seen it, including the world’s hardest critics, us. And this is how the designers have the confidence to say that the SC8 is another champion by design.

Authentic, custom painted and finished scale licensed short course truck body
Mounted and assembled scale wheels & tires with foam inserts and bead guards
Functional full roll cage with integral dirt shields
XP3D Computerized Digital 3-Channel FM Radio System with 10 model memory
