Default What happened to MGT 8.0 and TTS50?

Anyone know much about what has become of Team Associated and Thunder Tiger? I cannot find any transmissions for sale and many parts are discontinued globally. Finally decided to fix the old 8.0 and can't now due to discontinued line.

Thunder Tiger are still around, they just released a new electric buggy. I'm finding it hard to find parts for my EB4 buggy, ebay seems to be the best place for that. Can be hit and miss though...

Hi and thanks. I am in need of a full transmission. I stripped nearly every gear in the current unit and gear shafts/carriers, bearings etc. Basically a whole transmission or all of the internals.

That's a big truck. I've got a Summit, but I don't have room for a second vehicle that size. It takes up a shelf all by itself.

How exactly did you manage to strip ALL the gears in the MGT's transmission? Seems like it should've stopped running after just one gear stripped.

Maybe search the part numbers you need and maybe another vehicle uses the same part. Just a thought

Yep, I have three 1/8 trucks. MGT, SavageXL and the Redcat.

I guess either I didn't know one had stripped, or they all did at the single event. It does have the PowerHouseRC modded engine in it that just cracks along! Revvs a lot more and throws the MGT around. Easy to have 4wheel drift like the lighter 1/8 RC's. At full speed it gets hard to control due to its weight. There is not much left stock on it, even full billet shock upgrade.
