Avid Aluminum Rear Hubs And Chassis Brace Support For The Team Associated RC8.2

Oct 13, 2012 No Comments by

New from Avid for the Team Associated RC8.2 buggy are rear hubs that use carbon fiber mounting towers that can configured in 8 different positions, plus a carbon fiber rear chassis brace that will help to eliminate the brace’s upper mount hole from tearing or the brace splitting during a crash. Check out all the details in the official press release below:

The new AVID aluminum rear hub will be a must-have for racers running the popular Associated RC8.2 buggy. AVID designers incorporated adjustments that are not available on any other RC8.2 rear hub. First, the hubs feature 3.5mm thick carbon fiber mounting towers which can be flipped to have a total of 8 possible upper link locations for fine-tuning. Secondly, the rear hinge pin pivots on machined delrin inserts which can be flipped or changed to get 1 of 4 possible axle height locations in 1mm increments. The hubs are made of 7075 aluminum and then machined with the signature machined highlight.


  • 7075 Aluminum Rear Hub
  • 3.5mm Carbon Fiber Composite Hub Towers: Special “tall” hub towers offer 2 holes raised 1mm and 4mm above the kit positions to give racers new tuning options without re-drilling their kit towers. In addition, the hub towers are marked with an arrow and can be flipped to give an additional 4 upper link locations which are 2.8mm offset from the stock C and B holes that are offered.
  • Machined Delrin Hub Inserts (standard and mid) which allow adjustment of the outer pin height in 1mm increments. The hub inserts also act as a low friction wear surface rather than wearing on the aluminum hub itself.
  • Each set includes 2 x aluminum hubs, 4 x hub towers, 4 standard hub inserts, 4 mid hub inserts (not in photo), mounting hardware , and 1 AVID mini decal sheet.
