Building the industry's most dependable ready-to-run radio controlled vehicles is something we take great pride in. We've earned this reputation for quality, and we'll make no compromises to uphold it. The Limited Edition Nomad DB8 is no exception, packed with the technology to bring fun to your backyard, outdoor trails, and everything in between.

Born from the sand and destined to roam the earth, the Nomad DB8 is a tough, powerful, all-terrain dominating Desert Buggy based on the race-proven RC8 platform's unprecedented balance and incredible cornering performance. The Nomad DB8 form follows function with a durable impact-resistant roll cage, detailed interior, driver and co-pilot figures, painted body panels, and runs off a powerful Reedy brushless motor. To tame the unforgiving landscape, high-grip General Tyre GT(R) Grabbers are wrapped around rich-looking black 17mm hex wheels.

The Nomad DB8 is packed with the technology to bring fun to your backyard, outdoor trails, and everything in between.

Team Associated Limited Edition Nomad DB8 Buggy Features:

  • The Nomad DB8 uses a strong and efficient metal-gear 4WD drivetrain to send power to the ground. Managing that power are tunable front, center and rear fluid-filled differentials and Grabber(TM) tyres.
  • Smoothing out the forbidding terrain is the same durable, tuned and proven suspension used on the RC8 line of vehicles.
  • Dampening the rough landscape are four oil-filled shocks designed for smooth and consistent operation.
  • At the heart of this nomadic desert buggy are Team Associated's XP and Reedy electronics. All are installed in the DB8 chassis, allowing easy access to the receiver, steering servo and the new 4s Reedy electronic speed control (with reverse).
  • Two screen-printed body color schemes are available. Bodies are mounted to a roll cage, with a detailed driver and co-pilot.
  • Water-resistant enclosed receiver box.

what is the top speed with the recommended batteries
Asked by Toby Hendrikse on 18th October 2017

Not quoted, but we'd estimate around 40mph or so.

Will this take two 2s lipo battery's or is it one 4s lipo battery
Asked by Wayne on 4th April 2019

Spec is subject to change, but they normally have 1 battery connector - so ideal for a single 4S pack.

You could however run 2 x 2S packs and use a Y lead such as ET0707 to link them together.
