The Associated RC10 B6.1: A Look at the Latest 10-Scale RC Car
The Body and Chassis
The Associated RC10 B6.1 is a 10-scale RC car that features a unique body and chassis. It has a JDM look with mirrors on the hood, and the body details are insane. It also comes with some extra parts, such as shock limiters, shock parts, and a receiver box cover. The chassis is shorter than most 10-scale cars, giving it a unique look.
The wheels on the RC10 B6.1 are also unique. They come in a box with some nice colored calipers, which can be seen when looking closely. The calipers are red and Willow Wood, adding a cool detail to the car.
The RC10 B6.1 also comes with factory stickers, which can be applied to the car. However, it can be difficult to apply the stickers, and they can end up looking messy. It is best to take your time when applying the stickers to get the best look.
The RC10 B6.1 also comes with a remote, which features a cool caliper. This adds another unique detail to the car, making it stand out from other 10-scale RC cars.
The Cars I’ve Seen: A Review
Wheelbase and Motor
The wheelbase of the car I’ve seen is a bit shorter than what I’m used to, but it’s not a problem since it’s not meant for performance. It has a 550 motor and a 15 turn three slot Reedy Power Sport ESC. It’s programmable and can run on 3s, but it’s probably best to avoid that as it might damage the body.
The car looks absolutely amazing. It has a sleek design and is sure to turn heads.
The steering and throttle are both quite twitchy, but Associated did a great job of putting dual rates on throttle and steering. This allows you to adjust the car to your liking and make it as aggressive or tame as you want. The dog bones are metal and make a clicking noise when they move, but they are also very free, resulting in a smooth drivetrain.
The Stable and Smooth RC Car
Free-Flowing and Drives Well
It feels like it can just keep rolling, its very free flowing with no binding. It drives really, really well – oh, my God, so clean!
No ESC Switch
Some other things, there’s not a switch on the ESC. That’s not necessarily a problem, but it is something to note. I went and looked for the switch, and whenever I plugged it in, it turned on – there’s no switch, but what there is are two like connectors that are open where you can put lights and there are buckets for the headlights and there are four headlights. So you can do like the maybe the inner Amber lights and the outside like regular lights.
So I think this thing would look super sick with lights on it. I think it just looks amazing in general.
It’s not incredibly fast. However, it’s fast enough, where, if you’re new to RC you’re going to think that it’s fast. It is extremely stable and I can turn at full throttle and it’s not spinning out. It has an incredible amount of control, handles really, really well, probably one of the better handling brushed on-road RTRs I’ve ever driven. It’s very smooth, but it might be because of that 15 turn motor. Most on-road cars like this are overpowered, but this one’s not overpowered. I think it’s got a great mix of speed and torque, and I love that you can control it all with the remote. It’s very nice.
Full Pin Control
I’m basically going full pin while I’m driving and it’s not spinning out. I’ll go full pin right while I’m driving and it’s not spinning out. You can hear it, you can hear the body rubbing and it’s pulling geez in the corners, but it is not spinning out. It’s not losing control – very, very stable truck.
The JDM Look: Achieving the Perfect Automobile Aesthetic
Achieving the perfect JDM look for your automobile can be a daunting task. However, with the right tools and a bit of know-how, you can create a stunning aesthetic that will turn heads. To begin, you will need a lipo battery and charger, as well as some double A batteries.
The lights are one of the most important components of the JDM look. Installing lights on the hood of your car will give it a unique and eye-catching appearance. You can find a variety of lights to choose from, ranging from LED to halogen.
The Finishing Touches
Once you have the basics and the lights installed, you can begin to add the finishing touches. This can include customizing the paint job, adding decals, and even installing a spoiler. All of these elements will help to create the perfect JDM look for your car.
No matter how hot it is, it’s always new car day! The Team Associated Apex 2 Sport is sure to provide hours of fun and excitement. With its amazing details and durable construction, it’s the perfect car for any RC enthusiast.
