Wow I thought there would be a lot more for AE.


I love my RC8b and wouldn't trade it for anything.

And whoever said it doesn't turn well is definitely mistaken, the things got enough caster that it turns on a dime.

The chassis does wear fast and the cva bones in the front bend pretty easily but other than that I' haven't the slightest of problems. Car runs great and handles like dreams.

Yea that is kind of weird, I always thought the RC8B had a lot of steering, sometimes too much. I haven't had the chassis wear because I use the de guards. I pretty much learned to drive on the RC8B, And I have yet to break anything. I am talking cartwheels galore. I did manage to bend a few hinge pins doing cartwheels and also bend the front shocktower screws that hold the shock mounts in place so my front shock tower is very scratched up. My driveshafts have stayed in tact knock on wood. My only gripe is the fuel tank, but I have mine with a HB D8 tank now. Pretty much fits into place. Other than that it has been pretty durable. I actually broke more on my Jammin which I practiced with much less than my Rc8 and everyone said the Jammin was a tank.
