Team Associated Revives a Classic

For the last year or so, I've been telling people that Team Associated needed to reissue the original RC10 buggy. The plastic model industry has recently had a resurgence, no doubt thanks to the reissuing of old kits that the now 40- and 50-year-old modelers remember picking up and building when they first started. I thought that Associated could see a similar uptick in their market share by re-releasing a vehicle many R/C hobbyists hold dear.

Proving that great minds do think alike, Team Associated last week announced plans to do just that - they are reissuing the original (pre-Stealth) RC10 buggy. It will come in kit form, just like the original, and thus will require a radio system, motor, speed control and sundry other items. The kit will cost $249.99, street price.

These RC10s will be only available in a limited fashion, so if you'd like one, you should pre-order one as soon as you can. Associated anticipates selling out of these quickly, so per-order one today!

ProLite 4x4 Dropped to $339.99, While Supplies Last

The Team Associated ProLite 4x4 has been marked down for a limited time. Usually it sits on the shelf for $359.99, but right now, you can get your hands on one for $339.99, a full $20 cheaper. That's half of a new Dynamite LiPo Battery, or a solid chunk of change you can use for a charger!

This price is only going to be around until the two trucks we have on the shelf sell out, so hurry in and pick up yours today!

SC10 4x4 RTR Pricing Details Surface

And just like that, I found Associated announced pricing for their 4x4 Ready-To-Run offering. The guys over in Lake Forest, California acutally announced the existance of the RTR version before Team Losi did, but pricing details hadn't surfaced yet. The truck will come equipped with the now standard 2.4GHz radio, a new Reedy 550 SL Brushless motor, and a new water-resistant brushless speed control. Cool beans. This package can be yours for the way-cheaper-than-Losi's-price of $419.99, and it's supposed to ship in mid-October.

If you want to be the first of your friends to get one, stop in soon and pre-order one. The sooner you get on the list, the better your chance of getting one when they launch.
