Team Associated has been in the forefront of hobby-car racing since 1965. From its humble beginnings with a few slot-car parts to today, Team Associated has grown to designing and shipping thousands of radio-control cars and parts to hobby shops around the world.
Team Associated is the industry leader in race-level competition vehicles in a variety of sizes, ranging from diminutive 1:18 scale to serious nitro-thundering 1:8 scale machines. Our vehicles ride on road and off road, and are powered by electric motors and nitro engines. Our race-winning offerings include buggies, touring cars, monster trucks, and realistic-looking Short Course trucks.
Team Associated manages an in-house staff to research and develop our own race-related radio-control car products. Our talented engineers - many accomplished racers themselves - bring their years of solid racing experience to design cars that will compete at the highest levels of competition.
Team Associated fields a worldwide race team of unparalleled talent. Our stable of drivers are responsible for the many championship-caliber awards amassed since our first products in the early 1970s. We race what we sell. And we win big!
