Talking associated sc8 thread!!

Hey guys!!

Ok so i don't see that many threads for this awsome truck, hell I don't even know how many people own one. If not i would highly suggest you guys getting one.

So this thread will be all about the sc8, all the mods pics and how much you enjoy this sc. I hope there are people here who own one and would love to help this thread to take off. So let's see the sc8 guys :-).

Here's mine, stock for now.



THE ONLY MOD I'VE DONE IF YOU CAN CALL IT THAT. WHITE CAGE..





There's my sc8, now let's see yours. Also what do you guys think about white bumpers?? I'm thinking about painting my bumpers also. Thanks all who look and post.

I like the white cage. It is a shame that they didn't take off more than they did.

I was begging other companies to make 17mm sc wheels and tires, but no one would step up to the plate.

That was the only thing holding Caster back from putting one out a few years ago.

Thanks!!

I would love to see some more rims options for this truck. They do make some rims and tires choices for this truck. I myself like the 1/8 buggy rulux rims. I'm going to get a pair of those and paint the front black and the backs red to match the paint scheme of my body.

What people fail to notice or they do. The sc8 is the rc8t chassie and diffs and the rc8. Arms. Which means this truck is stout and handles really good.

DE racing puts out sc wheels for the 17mm. But yeah, back when it first came out, no one did and I too wish they would've taken off. I got two left and sitting on my shelf for me to just admire. These are bad ass trucks.

I picked up a set of the DE racing wheels and mounted a set of trenchers on them. Definitely look badass and should hook up where I run. Also a nice set of buggy dish wheels work great, I'm not to scale or not to scale guy so the buggy setup only makes the truck better in my world
