Default Team Associated RC8B 1/8 Buggy

Since the release of the new AE RC8B buggy how many has bought the new buggy or converted there old buggy to the new one?

I allready have the bigbores and steering mod on my RC8 but I would like to get the new radio tray and both shock towers and the A,B,C,D plates. So I really don't want to buy a whole new buggy.

Yeah TXRC8racer, I have the RC8, but still have all the standard stuff on it,thought about bigbores,towers etc, but as I`m in aust. The cost of shocks
etc, from aust or usa, I thought was a bit much, with freight,exchange rate
so I decided to go for the "B" version,as the price of it is only $30 more than I paid for the first one.Having said that, now I have to wait approx 3wks for
it, as AE have had to remake a part(FR) caster hubs? Apparently these have been breaking....choice is your`s though, good luck with ur upgrades, if you
decide to go that way....

The BB's are the best mod I have ever done to the RC8, It helped out more than anything else!!

Where can I buy the RC8B parts? Seems like everyone has them on back order ot they don't have them listed at all, the cars is in stock but the parts are not???

I gather ur in the usa? so have you tried A-mains, AE website? and yes I know the buggy kit is in stock at A-mains, for$499, but for me to get 1
shipped to Aust. And exchange rate on top(82cents) to the U.S.
dollar, I`d be up for over$800, so I`ll wait till they are in stock here...

Yes I have tried them all here in the U.S but no luck.

The people who has bought the new RC8B how do you like it so far. And what kind of set up are you running as far shock/spring package?
