I doubt anyone who knows about the SC8 from Associated would chime in in fear of losing their job, but it's been claimed that people can see a gas tank in the opening behind the front wheel well. I don't see it personally, but I'm losing hope of it being eletctic. A brushless/lipo ready 1/8th 4WD would be what I'm looking for... Chances are slim IMO it'll be that way though.


If it was nitro I don't think you'd be completely left out. I see many 1/8 scale buggy brushless conversion kits out there. Perhaps a company would make one for the SC8. In fact it probably is based on Associated's gas buggy. (look at the wheels nuts on the SC8 those look like 1/8 scale buggy wheel nuts). So a conversion that would work for it might already be out. :cool:

Yep, my only hope (short term) if it IS nitro is that it is closely based off of the RC8 and a corresponding brushless conversion would also work in the SC8. That's going to be one hell of an expensive toy though!

Going off of the RC8 price of around $500 and then a brushless conversion and batteries!:eek:

Maybe I won't be getting one together so soon.:(

Are there many used RC8's available in your neck of the woods? That might be a cheaper way to go if you can find a used rolling chassis.

I'm fine with my Slash, but hot damn those things look badass!!! I wonder if you can modify the body to fit on the slash?

Well... a bit disappointed it's nitro since my infrastructure is all electric. I'm hoping it's relatively inexpensive and soon has a brushless kit available. Still looks wicked cool though!!!!

The bodys and roll cage make them look SICK! it would be awesome if it was a 4-link in the back? Most likely not though. If only they made a greaves body.

A couple hours ago I had one in my hand at the CORR race. All I can say is that is one bad rig.

.28 cc motor
3+ HP
exhaust dual chamber
Independent front and rear disc brake
2.5" travel front and rear
24.34 inches bumper to bumper
14.75" wheel base
12" wide
9 lbs
50mph
electric start

4 or 2wd? Any word on estimated street cost? Is it a RTR then since you specd out the motor too?

They are going to be between $600-700 it comes as an rtr with steel gear bearing servos and a digital radio with a 10 model memory.

Keep in mind they are marketing this as a 1/8th scale truck with a .28 motor with high end servos and radio.

That is a pretty normal price for 1/8th scale.

When you see one close up, you'll understand the price point... and they are independent rear & AWD.

The SC8 is built waaay bulletproof, and has gotten me excited about racing RC's again!
Team Associated has raised the bar again, with such an incredibly well built & accurate piece of "moving art"!

Release has been set for late Oct., so start saving your lunch money!

I know my neighbors are gonna hate me even more now when I bring mine home!
