Team Associated RC8.2e RTR Blue
The tires are rock hard and very edgy. Good for bashing, bad for racing.

No locktite is used. Remove all parts where the manual says to use locktite and re do it.

To fit the car in the box it was fully slammed and lowered with no shock spacers. Being used in this manner caused broken rear chassis braces on the first afternoon out on two cars.

For some strange reason, the wheel nuts are not serrated. The best upgrade you can get is a 5$ set of serrated wheel nuts. I lost wheels even with lock tite.

The servo saver is fully screwed down, on a weak servo. Loosen it to the max if you want your servo to last more than 2 weeks.

After a few months of ownership, esc issues will emerge. This is likely a worn out Deans t connector from too much current. Run something beefier to solve this intermittent power loss issue.

The stock shock oil of 5/5/5 was way too loose on my local dirt track.

The motor is slow if compared to other same in class rtr cars, but has great torque. Bad if you have a long straight at your track. If you aren’t running on grass, etc., you can safely add a tooth or 2 bigger pinion.

Motor and diff changes are really slow as it is an older motor mount design. The spacers underneath the c hubs often fall out, lock tight them tightly, possibly with a mix of red and blue locktite. Esc on my older model was like 80amp, under powered for the class. Been running this for many years now, surprised it is back for sale. I definitely got my money’s worth.
