Team Associated RC18T Spy Shots!!!

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.

O.S. .18 TM engine for T-Maxx and Revo trucks

O.S. Engines has developed a new .18-size small-block engine that's even more powerful than the class-leading .18 CV-R, and it's a direct fit for the T-Maxx.

The .18 TM features an IPS-type crankshaft to fit the stock clutch and flywheel hardware from the 2.5 T-Maxx, and the Traxxas EZ Start 2 or a Traxxas pull-starter are a direct fit on the .18 TM.

Young Guns Dominate Cactus Classic

Young Guns Dominate Cactus Classic

Team Associated driver Jared Tebo took the win in the 2WD Mod class at the Pro-Line/RC Car Action Cactus Classic in Scottsdale, AZ, which proves the well-known nitro specialist is an equally talented electric racer. Team Trinity's Ryan Cavalieri won Mod Truck, while Ryan Mayfield finished first in 4WD with his J-Concepts buggy. What do these three drivers have in common? They’re all 19 years old or younger.

Tamiya TNX Wins Monster Madness II

Tamiya TNX Wins Monster Madness II

Tamiya was the big winner at the second annual RC Car Action Monster Madness race, hosted by RC Madness in Enfield, CT. Team drivers Jimmy Jacobsen (who took the TQ spot) and David Jun dominated the small block class with their TNX trucks, besting a field that included Traxxas' hard-charging Steve Slayden and his Revo. Slayden was gaining on the front-running Tamiya drivers, but flamed out before he could close the gap. Jacobsen took the checkered flag with two laps on the field, followed by Jun and Slayden. Congratulations Tamiya!

OS .18 TZ shatters the two horsepower barrier!

OS .18 TZ shatters the two horsepower barrier!

Prior to our latest dyno test, the most powerful small-block engine we've tested was high-strung .12 competition engine. At 1.6 horsepower, this engine put out more power than any small block of any displacement - until now.

In a recent dyno test for an upcoming issue of RC Nitro magazine, the new OS .18 TZ rear-exhaust engine cranked out a record setting 2.28 bhp at 30,500 rpm. It shatters the 2hp barrier for small-block engines well before anyone else had a chance to get close, making more horsepower than four very prominent big-block engines we've previously tested. The TZ also set a new high mark for torque, measuring an amazing 83.1 oz.-in. at 25,850 rpm.

The new TZ is a ground-up design that features a 5-port configuration with a turbo head and crank. An all-new 3-needle 11K carb features a big 6.5mm venturi for better breathing. For more information on the .18 TZ and other engines, visit the O.S. Engines website. To discuss this new engine at the RC Zone, home of the best RC forums in the world, Click Here.

Associated Sweeps Reedy Truck Race

Associated Sweeps Reedy Truck Race

Team Associated’s Ryan Maifield took home the Factory Modified win with his T4 with a pair of second-place finishes and one win in the triple A-Mains. Ryan Cavalieri nabbed second, and Jared Tebo took third, all wheeling Factory Team T4’s. Tebo won the Factory Gas Truck class to no one’s surprise, but he did have to work a little harder than normal to pass teammates Ryan Cavalieri and Maifield for the win. Cavalieri TQ’d gas truck, but unfortunately was out of the race with mechanical trouble for the final 20 minutes of the 45-minute A-Main. Maifield took second and Team Losi/Trinity’s Adam Drake rolled across the line in third.

Associated Reveals ‘Project BFT’!

In anticipation of the Chicago hobby show, Associated has revealed more photos of it's "Bigger, Faster, Tougher" monster truck concept. The final details haven't been worked out yet...but the A-Team promises the BFT will be powered by a rear-exhaust .21 engine and will include an aluminum "backbone" chassis, 2-speed tranny, extra-long arms with adjustable pivot-ball suspension suspended by eight oil-filled shocks, and huge monster-style tires and wheels. A factory-painted body will also be included, but no word on the final paint scheme (the flag look would be cool though). Check out www.rc10.com for more info.
