Team Associated RC Cars Models and Price
Below are the popular on-road and off-road models and estimated selling price in USD.
Team Associated cars are known for winning world championship races. The popular models are RC10 off road buggies, trucks, and touring cars (now called RC10B3, RC10T3).
My first Team Associated remote control car was an RC10 Team Car. I bought this way back in 1993 - 94, and used to race in the popular and large indoor off-road track called Queens Off-Roaders in New York, USA.
The RC10 Team Car was very fast and durable, and was a good car for playing around in the backyard or racing in organized events.
When I went back to the Philippines, I played around with Team Associated's RC10GT or gas truck. This was a nitro or gas powered version of their electric truck. The RC10GT was a lot of fun.
Overall, I am very happy with remote control cars produced by Team Associated.
Team Associated's IFMAR World Championships
Story of Team Associated
In the 60's, Roger Curtis and Lee Yurada formed Associated Electrics. The company specialized in slot cars and accessories.
Lee later on sold his shares of the company to Gene Husting. This was around 1969, and the popularity of slot cars was fading. Associated introduced a 1/8th scale on-road gas car called the RC1.
At this time, Associated had 6 employees; Roger, Gene, Gene's wife, and 3 others.
In the early 70's, Associated produced the RC100 gas car which swept the first 5 places in the IFMAR World Championships.
Next came the 1/12 scale RC12e on-road electric car. Designed by Roger, it was followed by the RC12i, which won the IFMAR 1/12 scale on-road Electric World Championships. By this time, Associated was double its size.
In the 80's, Mike Reedy joined Associated. Electric motors designed by Reedy have won 18 IFMAR World Championships to date.
By now, Associated had 35 employees. Then came the big breakthrough for the company, when Roger designed a 1/10th scale off-road buggy called the RC10. This buggy dominated the 1985 IFMAR 1/10 Off-Road World Championships.
By 1987, Associated had 75 employees. During this time, Cliff Lett joined the company, and the stealth RC10 cars won the 1989 and 1991 IFMAR World Championships.
Associated produced popular remote control cars such as the RC10, RC12LW, RC10L, RC10LSS, and RC10T.
Today, the tradition for excellent cars continue with the RC10B3, RC10T3, TC3, Nitro TC3, and the newer B4 and T4 models.
