Default Team Associated 1/8 scale Truggy Info and Tips

Guys,

We all know it will be coming out especially with the RC8 now available. The RC8T will be the next in line for sure. I did not see any RC8T at the Truck Nats but I did speak to a Team Driver and he said that they have been testing it. I was wondering if anybody has seen the RC8T in person?


Keep the info and questions coming

Later
Kevin Boyle

I have not seen it but I'm guessing late spring-early summer for release.

The carbon in not really that bad. I have the TTR ST-1 Pro and it has the carbon fiber shock towers. I have raced this Truggy pretty hard and have not had any problems. That is why I'm not worried about the carbon fiber towers on my RC8. Of course the towers on the ST-1 are thicker, so.......I would guess they would do the same with the RC8-T. I guess. Just my .02 cents.

Also, I am excited to see the Truggy version. I just might have to nab one of those too. I wonder how much it will be like the TTR Truggy. There are a lot of things on the RC8 that are similar to my ST-1.

I think it will look about have about the Same TTR influence as the RC8. So think about a rc8 with Bigger stuff and thats what the RC8T Will be. About it

Default RC8T

I'm sure it will be as amazing as the buggy. I would love to get my hands on one by the Winter midwest race at CRCRC.

RC CAR Dec 2007 issue page 86

The truggy with the number "6" on it, is that a RC8 Truggy?

Page 94 has Ryan Cavalieri chassis listed as a Associated!
