Team Associated surprised everybody when they have released their new Short Course nitro powered Ready-to-Run truck, the SC8. Based on the RC8T truggy, I was a little skeptic but when I saw the SC8 in person, but now I understood why many racers and bashers want one of those trucks.
The SC8 is offered in six different nice looking licensed truck bodies (Red Bull, Lucas Oil, KMC Wheels, Bully Dog, AE Team and Pro Comp). And if you prefer electric trucks, donít worry, Team Associated offers an electric conversion kit for the SC8.
The scale realism is awesome, the body and the wheels/tires are identical to the full scale CORR trucks. The bumpers are huge and the braces are designed to absorb major impacts. A little detail that shows how Team Associated pays attention to the scale realism is the rear mud flaps. They are made of soft rubber and an AE logo is engraved. Under the beautiful body, a realistic roll cage protects the SC8 from bad landings and also protects the SC8ís vital components from mud and dirt with two rear fenders and a front firewall.
The chassis is made from 3mm 7075 aluminum. The radio tray and shock towers are black anodized for a nice look and for ease of cleaning. The tires are the same size than 1:8 buggy tires so you have lots of choices in this chapter.
The Team Associated SC8 is well assembled and very attractive. Its low and wide stance will make it a hit on the race tracks. Also in addition most of the Factory Team option parts designed for the RC8/RC8T will fit on the SC8.
