Team Associated SC8e 1/8th Scale 4WD Electric Off-Road Race Truck Kit

New from AE:

The ultra-realistic SC8 was designed to look like full-size 4WD race trucks that compete on short course off-road tracks around the country. Team Associated’s all-new SC8e kit brings all of that scale excitement to those who prefer the awesome performance, convenience, and cleanliness of electric power.

Like the SC8, the SC8e was designed to meet the scale specifications and handling of full-size short course race trucks. It’s all there! A durable and realistic clear race truck body, KMC™ wheels with realistic off-road tires, scale suspension travel, full roll-cage, and functional mud flaps result in an unparalleled scale experience.

Good looks mean nothing without the engineering to back it up. Team Associated’s engineering team has developed a practical chassis design that incorporates the same exceptional strength, durability, cornering capability, jumping ability, and rough track handling that characterize the nitro SC8. With special features such as a hard anodized machined chassis, correctly balanced and optimized weight distribution, composite Big Bore shocks featuring 4mm gold shafts, and upgraded steering system, the SC8e is right at home on the race track – just like its full-size counterparts.

Scale realism and electric power make the SC8 the must-have truck in 2009!
