The fine folks over at Avid RC just announced two new upgrades for the popular Team Associated RC8.2 buggy including machined aluminum rear hubs with carbon fiber mounting towers and a carbon fiber rear chassis support. The Avid aluminum rear hub will be a must-have for racers running the popular Associated RC8.2 buggy. Avid designers incorporated adjustments that are not available on any other RC8.2 rear hub. First, the hubs feature 3.5mm thick carbon fiber mounting towers which can be flipped to have a total of 8 possible upper link locations for fine-tuning. Secondly, the rear hinge pin pivots on machined delrin inserts which can be flipped or changed to get 1 of 4 possible axle height locations in 1mm increments. The hubs are made of 7075 aluminum and then machined with the signature machined highlight.
The Avid RC8.2 Carbon Rear Chassis Brace Support is designed to help prevent the breaking/tearing of the stock molded RC8.2 brace which is used in the RC8, RC8B, and RC8.2. The molded brace offers the best performance for the vehicle but due to brace having a 5 degree angle placed in it to help clear the radio tray, it can be broken from very bad crash.
Avid RC8.2 Aluminum Rear Hubs
- Machined 7075 Aluminum construction
- 3.5mm Carbon Fiber Composite Hub Towers: Special “tall” hub towers offer 2 holes raised 1mm and 4mm above the kit positions to give racers new tuning options without re-drilling their kit towers. In addition, the hub towers are marked with an arrow and can be flipped to give an additional 4 upper link locations which are 2.8mm offset from the stock C and B holes that are offered.
- Machined Delrin Hub Inserts (standard and mid) which allow adjustment of the outer pin height in 1mm increments. The hub inserts also act as a low friction wear surface rather than wearing on the aluminum hub itself.
- Each set includes 2 x aluminum hubs, 4 x hub towers, 4 standard hub inserts, 4 mid hub inserts (not in photo), mounting hardware and 1 AVID mini decal sheet.
