You only think that because you've never actually seen a spec class. 1/8th pretty much was a spec class then the truggy came along and split the field in two and now this thing. At least this is more realistic and hopefully slower. If we're lucky this will replace truggies.

Default sc8 diffs

Well the SC8s are on the way I was wondering what do you thank the best diff fluids are going to be with not very much traction with those tires I was thinking I was going to have to keep um pretty stiff to get any speed what do you guys think. Mark,

with low traction I would think pretty light in the diffs - i wonder if 3-3-3 would work

Default WOW!!!!!

Received the trucks today. Fantastic Job Team Associated. The detail is just what the hobby needed and deserves.

After watching the Cliff Lett interview from iHobby 2008, I cant wait to see what else you are working on.

Several of us will be hitting the track with SC8's this weekend. Maybe be the end of the day we will be wheeling them like the promo video

Again Great Job.

JD

Default I know some of you have driven it...Thoughts?

I see its now readily available. My LHS is getting one in for me but I'm a bit concerned about the handling....

I bought a Slayer and took it to my local track where I race. While I didn't expect it to handle as well as any of my buggies, it handled like total crap.

I've had Revos before and raced those in MT. But this didn't even handle close to that.

Our track is hard-packed with a loose layer on top, bowties and crimefighters work well on it....

But I couldn't keep the Slayer going straight. Rear-end kept coming around even down the front straight when you pinned it....

I even let my buddies drive it who typically finish in the top 3 in buggy and after just a few laps they were done with it.

So, whats the handling like of the SC8?

Bushy,

I was talking to Saxton about it yesterday. It handles very well, and Jimmy Babcock has said this car is one of the best hes driven.

It handles nothing like a slayer. it handles like a 1/8 scale and you have to drive it like a 1/8 scale. You have nothing to worrry about when getting a SC8.

This looks really cool, but I can't see it taking off unless other manufacturers get involved. I'm not going to pay that much for a truck just to bash it.

this truck should handle good its a rc8t chassis with rc8 a arms 150cc tank. the wheels is what gets me the back of the wheels look the same diamater as 1/8th scale butt the front is smaller in diamater the tires look like they could work on a variaty of race tracks the cage is awsome comes off with 4 big body clips so the truck will be the same for wrenching as any other 1/8th scale. tuning the motor with the body on could be a pain and the glow plug is located at the back of the cage dont know how long that setup will last in racing conditions on a scale of 1-10 for overall quality and coolness i give it a 9 1/2. im pretty certon you will see quite afew of thease popping up at tracks this spring and this winter if you have an indoor track. the only thing im kinda gripping about is why no AE bigbores? i know its a rtr but cmon my hobbyshop sells this truck for 630.00 you would think AE could do bigbores.
