Team Associated RC10SC5M Team Kit RC Truck

The Team Associated’s latest T5 suspension and the benefits of a mid-motor layout come together in a race-spec short-course truck designed to offer the adjustability, durability, and out-of-the box track capability expected for competition. Is it another winner for the Team? Based on Team Associated’s wildly successful, race-winning RC10B5M platform, the RC10SC5M Team Kit represents the next step in the evolution of competitive short-course racing.

The Team Associated RC10 SC5M shares its gearbox with the T5M, which means it gets the same improvements Associated made over the B5M’s specs. That includes the new “V2” machined aluminum top shaft and revised V2 transmission case. The transmission gets an extra idler gear so that you can use a standard-rotation motor, and Associated’s long-proven ball differential spins steel CV driveshafts. Unlike the T5M and B5M Factory Lite, the SC5M gets the premium VTS 3-pad slipper clutch. The VTS design allows finer adjustments and has greater torque capacity than the standard 2-pad slipper, so the SC5M has no trouble handling powerful, low-turn motors.

Designed to win

The RC10SC5M Team Kit features a high-performance, no-compromise dedicated mid-motor designed chassis, configured specifically for short course. The RC10SC5M Team Kit shares nearly 90% of the parts as the B5M and T5M Team Kits, making it easier than ever to run multiple classes at the same time.

From the aluminum hard anodized chassis, to the Factory Team V2 threaded shocks, to the Factory Team VTS slipper clutch, the RC10SC5M Team Kit comes with all of these features and many more.
