Push The Boundaries!
1:8 scale nitro off road racing is one of RC's most challenging disciplines of racing - it requires attention to detail and demands the highest of standards from equipment. Here to answer the call is the latest development from Team Associated's Area 51 Design Works, the RC8B3.2 Team Kit! The RC8B3.2 is set to push the boundaries of the accolades accumulated by the RC8B3.1:
2018 I.F.M.A.R. World Championship, Perth, Australia — Davide Ongaro
2019 ROAR National Championship, Hutto, Texas — Spencer Rivkin
2019 RCGP Series Championship — Davide Ongaro
2019 Italian Nitro Championship — Davide Ongaro
The engineers of Area 51 Design Works focused on key components that improved durability, accelerated maintenance, and expanded upon its race-winning heritage within the RC8B3 platform. Suspension arm design improves performance in all conditions: bottom-loaded inserts adjust flex characteristics and longer overall length, with reduced rear arm mount width. A 4-piece center bulkhead allows for easier access to the center differential, making adjustments even faster.
The radio tray design features an enclosed battery box, a larger receiver box, integrated switch and transponder mounting, and adjustable flex configurations. Updated shock caps allow the RCB3.2 to be run with the included stiff bladders, standard bladders, or as emulsion with no bladders---all with the same cap. The RC8B3 platform was born with Team Associated 'Champion by Design' heritage and the RC8B3.2 plans to continue dominating the 1:8 scale off road racing scene!
