After a successful release of the long-awaited RC8B3.2, the Area 51 engineers took the rest of Team Associated RC8 vehicle platforms to the next level. The result is the RC8T3.2!
Using principles learned from the development of the RC8B3.2, the rear suspension arms have been lengthened to use the narrow pivot design for increased traction and stability. Bottom-loaded suspension arm inserts provide adjustable flex and increase durability while keeping the arms debris-free and easy to clean. A 4-piece center bulkhead allows for easier access to the center differential to make adjustments even faster. A rear shock tower has been developed to work with the suspension arm geometry.
The radio tray design has several updated features: an enclosed battery box, a larger receiver box, integrated switch and transponder mounting, and adjustable flex configurations. Updated shock caps allow the RC8T3.2 to be run with the included stiff bladders, standard bladders, or as emulsion with no bladders; all with the same cap.
The RC8 platform was born with the Team Associated "Champions by Design" heritage, and we designed the RC8T3.2 to continue dominating the competition!
