RC10 SC5M Team 1/10 Electric 2WD Short Course Truck Kit by Team Associated
This is the Team Associated RC10 SC5M Team 1/10 Electric 2WD Short Course Truck Kit. Based on Team Associatedís race-winning B5M, the SC5M Team Kit represents the next generation of competitive short-course racing. AREA 51 engineers took what they learned during the development of the B5M and T5M, and set out to create a short course truck that takes advantage of the undisputed mid motor superiority.
The SC5M Team Kit features a high-performance, no-compromise mid-motor chassis layout that has been developed specifically for short course racing, and shares nearly 90% of the parts as the B5M and T5M Team Kits. This cross compatibility makes it easier than ever to run multiple classes! From the hard anodized aluminum chassis, to the Factory Team V2 threaded shocks and Factory Team VTS slipper clutch, the SC5M Team Kit includes a plethora of features and hand selected go-fast goodies to deliver the ultimate in short-course supremacy.

This is my first SCT, and wish I had built one sooner.)
Nice handling, predictable jumping, very durable.
~500km of runtime(3 racedays + ~5 traning days) - only parts broken - 3 CVA pins, looks like they are quite week and i've put not enought black grease.
Main issue - leaking shocks, they leaks from both bottom and top sides.
Top leaks could be fixed by optional Alu caps or teflon tape(plumber).
Bottom leaks caused by AE O-Rings(not fit properly) and could be fixed by replacing stock O-Rings with optional low friction X-Rings or with changing at least 1 O-Ring per shock to another brand O-Ring.
Holes at proline body are not perfectly marked, suggest to validate before drilling.)
