1:8 scale off road racing is one of the hobby's most challenging disciplines; it requires a high standard and demands attention to detail. The latest development to come from Associated Electrics' Area 51 is designed to push boundaries of performance and build upon the number of accolades accumulated by the RC8 series.

-The adjustable rear wing has more vertical fins for increased straight-line stability, a taller rear wicker lip height for increased downforce and increased strength in various areas to reduce bending fatigue

-Rear chassis brace is mounted centrally to the gearbox, which reduces material fatigue, centralizes shear forces, and improves the life of rear end drivetrain parts while allowing for three different chassis flex options

Rear hub features a symmetrical left and right common design with axle height inserts for adjustable roll center tuning

-Captured CVA drive shafts design front and rear with center dogbone driveline

-Fuel tank with an ergonomically designed lid puller, quick reference fuel markings and 1-, 2-, and 3cc stackable inserts for volume adjustment at sanctioned events

-Carbon fiber front top plate centralizes the front chassis brace for balanced flex in all directions

-Body shell designed by Area 51 for aggressive looks, functional performance, and lasting durability

-V3 differentials with 42T ring and 12T pinion gears for improved gear ratios

-RC8B3.2 side guards that thread into the chassis from the top side of the car

-RC8B3.2 radio tray: battery and receiver box with removable transponder mount

-RC8B3.2 split center diff mounts with aluminum center top plate

-16mm shocks equipped with locking spring cups and rod ends in improved material, V2 springs, 'stiff' style shock bladder, combination bleeder/emulsion caps, and blue aluminum threaded collars

-RC8B3.2 narrow C and D arm mounts

-4-shoe aluminum clutch with two composite and two aluminum shoes, optimized clutch springs, and steel 13T clutch bell

  • Innovative front-end geometry with reduced inclined kingpin steering blocks are paired with a new wider upper suspension arm pivot for improved steering balance and predictable handling in all conditions
  • Gearboxes are specific to front and rear with larger 6x13x5 mm flanged bearing sizes resulting in longer life of ring and pinion gears. The front gearbox has an inclined pinion gear angle to straighten the center driveshaft for increased drivetrain efficiency and reduced phasing and vibration while the rear gearbox remains flat.
  • Front and rear suspension arms engineered to accommodate a wide range of flex and stiffnesses
  • One-piece anti-roll bar links mounted in-line with anti-roll bar with BHC for simplified assembly
  • Front upper arms include a unique molded "wing" insert for increased front-end downforce
  • Rear wing mount has adjustable wing angle shims, significant strength improvements, an aerodynamic shape, and extra clearance for shock position adjustment
  • Specifications:

  • Length, with wing: 486mm (19.13")
  • Width: 304.5mm (11.99")
  • Wheelbase: 321.5-329mm
  • Final Drive Ratio: 12.38:1
