Since the RC100 of Butch Kroells crossed the finish line to claim the first-ever IFMAR World Championship in 1977, Team Associated has won 26 of the most coveted titles in radio control—with a staggering 18 different car kits. The ProLite 4×4, however, couldn’t be any less interested in that history; after all, there’s not even a class for it on the international level. Instead, this broad-shouldered bruiser is intended for the local spots where even seasoned factory pros got their start: the backyard tracks and empty lots that are the breeding ground for RC’s next generation. Built on an all-new platform as the springboard of a completely new concept for the industry’s most historically iconic brand, the ProLite 4×4 could be the most exciting release we’ve seen in years.
