Default Team Associated RC9

Might be coming out soon.

I was at Revelation Raceway today, and a few guys from Associated were there testing a new design. I was told that one of the designers from HB is at Associated now, and the car is a completely new design. One of the guys at Rev walked up to their pit table and started talking to them, he said "Don't worry, I'm not going to look at the car."

There were 2 cars there, one was DIALED, the other was so-so.

They left as soon as Adam Drake showed up.

This would be a good thing for ae. They need a new 1/8 buggy. Or at least some changes to the current one, it's not a bad car, it's just not as good as it could be.

I'm not surprised at all, AE need to reveal new 1/8 a bit to warm up interest. All that suppasales for current 8.2 are about cleaning warehouses for new kit.

Hi SVTHOSER,

The answer is given by Ryan Cavalieri during an interview :

http://www.liverc.com/news/special_f...yan_Cavalieri/

LiveRC: There have been some rumors floating around lately about some new AE cars in the works. Specifically a possible new 1:8 buggy. What can you tell us about these rumors?

Ryan: I want to believe the rumors too! They just might be true, will have to wait and see. I think will be running a new 1:8 car for the DNC this year.

Bye !

I guess, but it isn't a "huge new release" like the b5.

It should be much bigger than a 1/10 buggy. They need it badly from my point of view.
