Basher favorite, RPM, is set to make your SC8 more tougher. They are introducing front and rear A-arms for the truck, as well as the RC8B buggy. Beyond the legendary RPM material adding much strength to your ride, you can also expect some nice added touches like molded in shock mounts and additional clearance to [...]
