Must have got your ass handed to you by one......its ok dude, every forum needs a cocktruffle......cheers

Default RC8b2

Howdy all my fellow RC8 drivers. I was telling one of my race buddies a couple of weeks ago that I thought AE would be putting out a new buggy that you could buy with all the new upgrades already on it and sure enough its coming out in september lol. Im glad Ive delayed buying all the upgrades for I'm just gonna wait till september for the new buggy to drop and buy one. I makes no sence for me to spend all that money now to upgrade when I can just buy a brand new buggy that will already have all the new latest and greatest things.

Default comparing upgrade to new new 8.2

From appearance alone obviously it looks as though the new 8.2 differs from the update kit. In the update they call for longer shock eyelets to gain the droop needed. This kit appears to have stock length, which means they shortened the towers for the new kit. Also not only are the arms not remachined old ones. The uppers look to have been redesigned and look much nicer then the older versions also included in the upgrade. Notice anything else?

This is just another prime example of why I'm going to wait for the new buggy to come out instead of spending all the money on upgrading my current rc8b

I think the towers are the same, at least they appear so. Probably will need to change shock ends to get additional droop. I have started running less droop lately, you dont always need the max you can get.

Actually, the new towers look to be a little lower at the shock mounting position. They keep calling these the "low cg" version of the update towers.

Obviously I dont know for a fact but just measuring photos of the kit towers and photos of the updated parts they measure the same.

They sure issued a good price point on this buggy. That's good.
Most make a change and up the price. Kudos to Associated.

Default parts

Only time will tell on the towers I guess, but it would make sense to have the towers be lower, and do away with the eyelets. Maybe they just decided its too much with the eyelets. I do think the added droop helps, but the full amount with eyelets is probably a little excessive.
