Team Associated RC8B4e Electric 1/8 Off-Road 4wd Buggy Team Kit Part# ASC80946

 

1:8 scale off road racing is one of the hobby's most challenging disciplines; it requires a high standard and demands attention to detail. The latest development to come from Associated Electrics' Area 51 is designed to push boundaries of performance and build upon the number of accolades accumulated by the RC8 series.

Chassis layout featuring two different shorty-style only battery configurations. Both configurations include a centrally mounted center differential and in-line center dogbones for superior drivetrain efficiency and equalized chassis balance.
-Configuration 1: Two 2s shorty "saddle pack" for lowest CG and exceptional weight bias
-Configuration 2: One 4s shorty for simplified setup and more centralized weight bias over a traditional full length 4s battery.

Innovative front-end geometry with reduced kingpin inclination steering blocks places the wheel pivot in the center of the front tire for increased stability and consistent steering through the entire steering throw
-Paired with a new wider upper suspension arm pivot

Front upper suspension arm design
-Designed to accommodate a wide range of flex and stiffness options.
-Optional inserts will be made available for fine tuning flex and stiffness and will fit on the top or bottom of the arm.
-Includes a molded "wing" insert for increased front-end downforce.
-Uses a replaceable molded hinge pin bushing to reduce slop and increase suspension dynamics

Front lower suspension arm design
-Designed to accommodate a wide range of flex and stiffness options. -Optional inserts will be made available for fine tuning flex and stiffness
-One-piece anti-roll bar link mounts in-line with the anti-roll bar with a BHCS instead of a shock pin for simplified assembly
-Optional inserts mount to the top or bottom face of the arm – racers choice!

Rear suspension arm design
-Designed to be of optimal flex and stiffness with no insert. However, optional inserts will be made available for fine tuning flex
-Optional inserts will be made available for fine tuning flex and stiffness and will fit on the top or bottom of the arm
-Angled one-piece anti-roll bar link is mounted in-line with the anti-roll bar with a BHCS instead of a shock pin for simplified assembly

Rear wing mount has adjustable wing angle shims, significant strength improvements, an aerodynamic shape, and extra clearance for shock position adjustment
-Two wing height options are available to tune the rear downforce
-Three wing angle positions: 0, -2, and -4 degrees
-The improved design also secures the wing mounting nuts so that they will not spin in the mount
-The four wing mount screws into the rear tower access from the rear end of the buggy for simplified maintenance

Rear wing has more vertical fins for increased straight-line stability, a taller rear wickerbill height for increased downforce, increased strength in various areas to reduce bending fatigue, and dimples on the backside as a template for cutout holes
-Two wing buttons are included for additional tuning options: the first is a traditional one-piece flat button and the second is a vertical stabilizing fin for even more straight-line stability

Rear chassis brace has several design features and flex options
-Rear brace is mounted centrally to the gearbox, which reduces material fatigue, centralizes shear forces, and improves the life of rear end drivetrain parts
-Has three different chassis flex options using two chassis hole mounting locations
1. Use both screws (most rigid).
2. Use one screw, long location.
3. Use one screw, short location (most flexible)
-The upper brace joint has two flex tuning options at the gearbox
1. With included molded inserts that prevent twisting and only allow flex along the centerline pivot of the brace
2. With optional turnbuckle ball for flex in more degrees of freedom
Removable insert to customize the amount of flex in the brace

Specifications:

  • Length, with wing: 486mm (19.13")
  • Width: 304.5mm (11.99")
  • Wheelbase: 321.5-329mm
  • Final Drive Ratio: 12.38:1
