I'm running an RC8 Team kit. Associated parts costs are about as low as you find, and other than shimming my center dif, and putting washers over the hinge pins (my service pack is en route but I am running it anyway). New versions have the pack on allready.

Out of the box, box stock setup this thing handles so well. Most of it is built, even the body is cut out so you just mask and paint. It's planted. Everyone that has driven it, or another, have said things like Caddy because it's rides smooth, and lands jumps extremely well. I will say it has a little on power push but that also helps in making it easier to drive at times. I also like the large inner bearing that the vd rides in. the pin actually sits inside the bearing race. Even if you lost the setscrew, the pin will stay in. that means finishing a race. I was a big GS fan for this same reason. It's simple and super effective.

Cons? I am used to Xray quality and the Associated materials are good, but not that good. I am liking this buggy alot, more parts are available for it than my B44. It has a lot of nyloc nuts. A dab of ca or shoe goo in all the shock tower ones and such to hold them in if you need to take something apart makes life easier. Some of those spots are near impossible to get a nut in without taking things out.

i love my rc8 its is very well priced in comparison to it competitors. pros lots of steering, parts are cheap lch carries alot of parts for it.

cons ae has a tendency to say there releasing something then pushes the date back. there was a recall on a few parts on the car. bulkheads seem to be a issue to due suspension plates hower it is now worked out.
