O.M.G your the funniest guy ever to post on this site. RC-MP9 I cant stop laughing.

It's a good thing for AE to continue to improve an excellent platform. That buggy was already better than a lot of others out there and since they have been working on new parts it has just gotten faster and faster.
The AE drivers have been pretty much dominating everyone I.M.O.

With the power of todays engines, I do not see this as an issue. Hopefully the alum, Steering knuckles and the rear hubs and lightweight parts will be included. I doubt it though.

No that will be the FT version or the CE version that will come out 6 months later and 75 bucks more.

Taking what they learned at the 1:8 World Championship in Pattaya Thailand, the engineers at Team Associated took the RC8.2 to another level and in doing so achieved its ultimate racing potential, which has been proven by winning the 2011 1:8 scale off road R.O.A.R National Championship with a 1-2 finish by Ryan Cavalieri and Ryan Maifield.



The RC8.2 Factory Team kit has a long list of new performance parts, making it the best and lightest Associated 1:8 scale buggy to date. The RC8.2 Factory Team starts with the new Factory Team +3mm 7075 hard anodized chassis. The new chassis and side guards add 3mm of length to optimize weight distribution and overall handling.



To further improve handling, the RC8.2 Factory Team kit received newly designed suspension arms featuring centerline shock mounts and an optimized anti-roll bar position. The new suspension arms were designed to work with the Factory Team 5mm 7075 aluminum low-CG shock towers to improve and optimize the suspension geometry, making the RC8.2 Factory Team kit more plush and forgiving in rougher terrain.



The RC8.2 Factory Team kit includes the 16mm "Big Bore" hard-anodized threaded shocks with 4mm titanium nitride coated shafts and revised shock boots to help increase traction and keep the rubber on the ground. The RC8.2 Factory Team kit also proves to be an exceptional value, including many Factory Team parts that were previously only available as separately purchased upgrades.



Take your 1:8 scale buggy game to the next level with the new RC8.2 Factory Team kit, and drive what the winners drive!
