Now you can enjoy Team Associated’s world-class performance with true scale authenticity in a 1:18 scale late model oval racer! Team Associated is proud to bring to you the RC18 Late Model; a 1:18 scale RTR (Ready-To-Run) electric 4WD late model oval racer.

The RC18 Late Model features a newly designed chassis with a fully enclosed, 2-belt, drive train system that is capable of handling the extreme amount of power that today’s brushless motors and LiPo batteries can dish out. Along with durability, the drive train is sealed to help keep rocks and dirt away from all the gears and pulleys.

The RC18 Late Model comes fully assembled with a painted and decaled late model race body, chrome late model style wheels, aggressive checkerboard tread scale tires, all designed to look just like the full-size race cars that run in dirt oval series around the country. At first glance it’s easy to see that the RC18 Late Model is another champion by design!

  • Realistic dirt late model body made with 0.8mm (0.03”) polycarbonate
  • Chrome late model style wheels with aggressive checkerboard tread scale tires
  • Realistic rear bumper and foam front bumper for maximum impact protection
