Default Electric Associated SC8- GONE WILD!

Well I just finished up my SC8 conversion the other day. It is a prototype in testing. Chassis is new, along with other standard Tekno parts, including the clutch, make this conversion super scale. I can creep around on the ground with a small blip of the throttle at 1 mph if I want. Rolling around on and off throttle on pavement or blacktop produces the most amazing tire squelching. The sounds are soooo realistic and cool!! And just seeing one of these bad boys coming to a screeching/screaming stop at full brakes (mechanical), will make just about anybody want one.

Let me know what you think or if you have any questions.

Very cool indeed.

Is that a Tekno kit for an RC8?

I can't wait to see how it performs on the track. I'm headed out there today.

If all goes well, I'm hoping to run against the nitro buggy class on Saturday.

It's a prototype RC8T conversion that also works perfectly for the SC8.

I need some track time with it to tell for sure. However with the testing I've been doing with other ESC's, I should have no heat issues even when its hot outside. This is mostly due to the fact that I run 6S and match it with an appropriate KV motor.

I see you still are using a break servo.....is this so you can still have front & rear brake adjustability?

Thanks. The trick is to use a hot glue gun. This way you can apply one half of the window, let it dry quickly, stretch the screen tightly and glue the other side. Regular glue like "shoe goo", doesn't dry fast enough and super glue just won't do the job.

That is one of the main reasons for this. Another is a cooler running system.

No video yet. I raced this thing at my local track this past weekend and I had no one there with a video camera to capture the action.

It was a thrill to drive and I can tell I will be having a lot of fun with this truck in the future. It's going to make me a good drift driver.

There was a big crowd at the race and needless to say, the truck in action, turned a few heads.
