Evolution of the RC10 1:10 Buggy

Introduction

The RC10 2WD buggy has had a long and illustrious career. Here is a roadmap tracing the Team Associated releases from the start, and the IFMAR World Championship winnings the series collected along the way. Keep in mind that pinning down the features for each model is like shooting a moving target -- the models were still in flux after their first release, with parts being updated or their color changed while the part number and packaging remained the same (these were called "running changes"). So the features mentioned below, taken from the printed literature, represent a snapshot in time for that model.

This page focuses on the 2WD versions of Team Associated 1:10 electric buggies.

Updated January 18, 2024
