Team Associated RC18T Spy Shots!!!

We uncovered a major secret during a routine visit with Team Associated recently. Tucked away in a partially opened cabinet, we couldn’t help but notice a suspicious little truck with a mini T4 body. Apparently someone left the cabinet open and before the engineers could wrestle us to the ground, we snapped off a couple of pictures it.

For more information and pictures, please visit the Radio Control Zone forums.They may not be the greatest shots, but you’re looking at a prototype of the A-Team’s new RC18T mini truck. Look closely and you’ll notice the aluminum propeller shaft running down the center of the chassis. Yes the truck is 4WD and it will also include oil-filled shocks, front and rear diffs and it’s compatible with the many wheels and tires designed for the Losi Mini-T. The chassis has room to install a six cell flat pack on the left side of the chassis and the motor, ESC, receiver and steering servo are mounted on the right.

According to Associated, an RC18T RTR is already in the works and they might even release a kit version. LRP is working on a special ESC and motor for the RTR version, but the truck is designed to use the current crop of motors, batteries and other micro electronics. Keep checking back, because we’ll have better shots of the RC18T soon.
