Team Associated RC10 Worlds build

Post by Zac_F85 » Mon Nov 17, 2014 11:39 pm

I splurged on this kit as it was on sale for nearly $100 off and I wanted a RC10 Classic (RE-RE gold pan) but couldn't justify the $350 kit. No tires, or electronics were included in this kit either. I got such a good deal on it though that I bought a Savox servo, F+R Pro-line tires, and a couple other small things at the same time and still got it all for under $250.
Hoping this to be my most in-depth build thus far, and as such in depth will be a slower build as I need to buy new wrenches here LOL.

Specs planned -

Pro-line Square Fuzzy soft compound rear tires (repro's of original class winning RC10 racing tires)
Pro-line 4 rib super soft compound front tires
Savox SC-0252MG servo (145oz/in torque)
Racer's Edge power cap
Team Associated SC700 ESC
Team Associated Reedy 3300kv brushless motor
Team Associated XP2G 2.4ghz radio
Sharing the 2S lipo from my SC10 SCT (5200mah 50C)

Nice, but take it real slow as their were some issues with the top shaft for the transmission along with some other issues. I will try and find them for you and post them up...

Back when i build and raced thoes we would use old bearings and run toothpaste with baking soda in it to break in the trans it would make it so silky smooth. they also made a lightweight topshaft and we would drill out the slipper to lighten it up made a world of difference.

Nice build Zac! It looks just like the box and you did up the driver! Nice touch!

I just received mine in the mail yesterday. I already started putting the Stealth together and am having issues with the idler gear, the case being really tight and the top shaft allowing the slipper plate hitting the motor mount. I fax my info to AE and hopefully will be getting replacement parts.

Did you notice these issues when building yours?

Well bringing this back up! True story here - I actually never drove this buggy, traded it for a highly modified SCX10, and bought it back from him still unused about 6 months ago! I was planing to get it running with a old Reedy 19t spec motor, and all AE electronics BUT I decided I want to go in a different direction with my B4 17.5 stock buggy build (had $600 into it and needed another $400)..

SO instead of dump another $400 into the B4, I decided I had a RC10 chassis sitting around that I'd rather build.. well added up what it would cost to for the necessary parts to make a roller.. well I'm better off buying a new Worlds kit and save money at that point.

So I set out to start in on it- first by tearing it apart and come up with a few of the first mods which I have done -

Before getting started - considering tearing it apart haha

To late now..
Image

Torn down, cleaned, and wrapped the front, chassis bottom, and guard of the motor plate in carbon fiber automotive wrap
Image

Image

First mod - cut the bottom out of the battery box
Image

Fits great!

Small update!

Found Lunsford titanium hinge pins on eBay, bought them, and the carbon fiber parts are set to show up Thursday or Friday..

Found out that the B4.1 uses the same rear bearing carrier spacing at the RC10. So I set out to fit a pair of B4 Team aluminum rear carriers on my RC10 - simply drilled the hinge pin hole with an 1/8" bit, then file fit the hinge pin..

Found out the hard way RC10 CVD's won't work at all, B4's are to long, but after some digging.. I found out B44 rear center CVD bones will work.. AE PN 9760 is rumored to be 61mm pin to pin, and stock B4's are 65mm pin to pin SO the 4mm shorter should work..

Also found out the stock camber turnbuckle will work as well in the outer holes on the World's bulkhead BUT to use the inner holes, you need another pair of front camber turnbuckles, which is the route I plan to go..

Well! HUGEish update! Got the Lunsford titanium hinge pins, and the RC Carbon Works carbon fiber parts! (Battery strap, trans brace, short rear shock tower, and wide front tower)

Also made my first Amain hobbies order -
Protek titanium screw kit
Protek 4-40x3/4" screws
Protek 3/32" ceramic dif balls
Lunsford titanium turnbuckles
(2) Lunsford 3x43mm turnbuckles (new rear camber)
Blue RPM rod ends
(2) 9760 AE CVD's
Avid B4 top shaft
B5M wing mounts (stock)
AE anodized blue 4-40 lock nuts
AE anodized blue 8-32 lock nuts
2539 Traxxas aluminum spacer set (2)

Also bit the bullet and bought Dhawk blue front arm mounts, and his steering rack..

I already mocked up the carbon fiber and it's PERFECT.. the big bore B4 shocks bolted right on, only had to swap the lower shock mounts to the RC10 worlds style, instead of the B4 style.

I decided since the bearings are brand new still, I'll just use them, this order will allow me to get it to a nice roller and/or running if I decide to use the Novak club/17.5 I have from my B4 worlds pics up this weekend!

Only picture I have sadly, from weighing it. haha it will get a few parts to add a little and a bunch more titanium so it's going to be interesting where it ends up. Possibly found cvd's as well - AE 9911 B44 rear's are 61mm or so. So I will probably try to pick those up here this week to try..

Still waiting on the Dhawk aluminum front arm mounts, and steering rack..

Well got a increase on the ole CC so I splurged and picked up a new ESC/Motor -

Turnigy TrackStar 80A ESC
Turnigy programming card
Turnigy TrackStar 17.5 Outlaw motor

All for get this... $100 shipped in the USA - same price as the Trinity motor I was planning to get.. hopefully this setup is competitive!

The rest of the parts will be ordered this week!
