Team Associated has given us yet another short course truck to the every growing list already – the new Team Associated SC18! The Team Associated SC188 Brushless RTR comes loaded with big time features including the XP3-SS 3-channel 2.4GHz radio system, 4WD, and a Reedy brushless power system!
The Team Associated SC18 features a chassis with a fully enclosed, 2-belt drive train system with an adjustable slipper clutch that is capable of handling the extreme amount of power that today’s brushless motors and LiPo batteries can dish out.
The Team Associated SC18 Brushless also comes fully assembled with a painted and decaled short course race-truck body, AMT Forged style wheels, aggressive tread multi-terrain tires, all designed to look just like the full-size race trucks that run in short course off-road series around the country. The world of high-performance 1:18 scale electric R/C has never before seen this level of scale accuracy! From the first glance it’s easy to see that the Associated SC18 is another champion by design!
