Staying on top of your game in any sport or competitive environment is crucial. In the world of R/C racing, that constant evolution can be seen through the almost-yearly updates and releases from many of the sport’s biggest brands.
Team Associated has developed an update to one of their most-popular and successful 1/10-scale buggy platforms, the RC10 B44. Its successor is the RC10 B64, a kit that is geared toward indoor carpet and high-grip racing conditions.
The previous model, while excellent on dirt, saw need for improvement in higher-grip environments. This need lead to the chassis and component updates that are found in the RC10 B4.
Improved suspension, providing smoother overall performance and handling, is made possible through V2 12mm Big Bore aluminum shocks which are mounted to carbon fiber shock towers. Additional handling adjustments and tuning is possible through caster blocks, front and rear sway bars.
Overall adjustability and customization has been a focus of the B64 Team Kit. The areas of the vehicle that require hands-on attention while at the track are easy to access and tune.
