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. (See the listing of notable RC8 wins in Manuals & Setups.)

RC8T4 Team Kit Features
Innovative front-end geometry with reduced kingpin inclination steering blocks places the wheel pivot in the center of the front tire for increased stability and consistent steering through the entire steering throw
Paired with a new wider upper suspension arm pivot

Gearboxes are specific to front and rear:
Front gearbox features a 3.5deg. inclined pinion gear angle to straighten the center driveshaft for increased drivetrain efficiency and reduced phasing and vibration
Rear gearbox features a 0deg. pinion gear angle and center mounted rear chassis brace mount
Both gearboxes feature larger bearing sizes over RC8B3. Switching to a 6x13x5mm flanged bearing (from a 6x12x4mm non-flanged) results in longer life of bearings and ring and pinion gears
Reduced hardware on anti-roll bar cap for easy assembly and maintenance
Increased strength in common areas of part fatigue; particularly around the pinion gear and outer cap bearing fitment

Updated front upper suspension arm design
An added molded hinge pin bushing to reduce slop and increase suspension dynamics

Rear wing mount has adjustable wing angle shims, significant strength improvements, an aerodynamic shape, and extra clearance for shock position adjustment
Two wing height options are available to tune the rear downforce
Three wing angle positions: 0, -2, and -4deg.
The improved design also secures the wing mounting nuts so that they will not spin in the mount
The four wing mount screws into the rear tower access from the rear end of the buggy for simplified maintenance
Rear wing has more vertical fins for increased straight-line stability, a taller rear wickerbill height for increased downforce, increased strength in various areas to reduce bending fatigue, and dimples on the backside as a template for cutout holes
Two wing buttons are included for additional tuning options: the first is a traditional one-piece flat button and the second is a vertical stabilizing fin for even more straight-line stability
Rear chassis brace has several design features and flex options:
Rear brace is mounted centrally to the gearbox, which reduces material fatigue, centralizes shear forces, and improves the life of rear end drivetrain parts
Has three different chassis flex options using two chassis hole mounting locations
Use both screws (most rigid)
Use one screw, long location
Use one screw, short location (most flexible)
The upper brace joint has two flex tuning options at the gearbox
With included molded inserts that prevent twisting and only allow flex along the centerline pivot of the brace
With optional turnbuckle ball for flex in more degrees of freedom
Removable insert to customize the amount of flex in the brace

+1mm offset rear hub features a symmetrical left and right common design with axle height inserts for adjustable roll center tuning
The standard bearing size used is an 8x16x5mm flanged but the hub will still accept 15x21x4mm bearing for CVA axle tuning options

Fuel tank with many new features
A new footprint to integrate with new steering bellcrank position
Optimized fuel tank capacity
Includes an ergonomically designed rubber lid puller
Dash marks on the upper fuel tank half are measurement indications for quickly checking remaining fuel capacity after a session
Increased splash guard height
Longer lid pivot length results in a better closure and seal between lid and tank
Three stackable inserts are included for volume adjustment at sanctioned ev
