1992ish Team Associated world champ Ed. RC10 restoration

Post by Zac_F85 » Mon Sep 28, 2015 12:58 am

Just picked it up from one of my best friends in WI - is in great shape as well - as good as it can be, was a basher - only has a bent tie rod, and missing the battery straps, that I see so far!

Got the box with it, 2 NiCD's, and that's about it..

Picked up a NICE original double A stamped chassis
Both instruction manuals, and a parts catalog
rubber sealed bearing kit
repro decals from MCI-Racing for a box art look

Planning an order from RPPhobby tomorrow as well - going to try to reuse as much as possible on this one to save money for a vintage radio

New parts from RPP -

AE RC10 Viper body
AE 7" HD wing
AE RC10 driver
AE RC10 spur gear cover
AE front bumper
AE RC10 shock clamps
AE shock rod ends
AE RC1 nose tube braces
AE RC10 battery cups (2)
AE RC10 body posts
AE grease
AE Ball cups
AE Aluminum anodized Blue screw set
Pro-Line 4 rib M4 front tires
Pro-Line Square fuzzie M3 rear tires

the plan is a mostly stock setup with a 2S lipo - using my Novak M410 vintage ESC and and a NOS custom built Trinity Kinwald epic 27t motor I'm building

I never posted pics over here WTH!?

I recently bought one of my best friend's RC10 from him as I had gotten a kick to restore RC's lately - I had only seen the car once when I was out at his parents place WAY back in the day and knew what it was but didn't care much as I was into on road cars and monster trucks.

So I paid $200 for it - came with the box, and no radio (Futaba pictured is the one I had waiting for this)

From a post on here I gather it is a late production run, stealth trans, plastic shock caps, Green springs, MSC, JR servo's, Stock motor. he was a basher not a racer so it's beat for sure but not broken so far..

The plan - full OE restoration of the chassis/trans, and a few tasteful modern/vintage upgrades as follows

Stock chassis (gold pan - gotta find a local anodizer)
Stock stealth trans
Stock shocks
Futaba S148 servo
Futaba 75mhz AM radio
Novak 410-M5 ESC - new Deans connector on batt, vintage deans on motor
Stock AE motor OR Trinity kinwald epic 27t motor I'm building (from NOS parts)
Stock bead lock 3 piece wheels
Pro-line M4 4 rib front tires
Pro-line M4 Square fuzzies rear tires
Protech body done in box art or close to it
Clean all the white parts to look new to save money on buying new one's

I bought a double "A" stamped chassis, which doesn't have the stealth holes drilled so I'll likely resell it.. other than that I bought -

Rubber sealed bearing kit
Repro decals
Original instructions/ catalog

Planning to buy -
Protech body
driver
5.5" HD wing
RE-RE gear cover
AE aluminum screw kit
Front and rear shock towers
Body mounts
2 battery cups
Shock hardware/ rod ends
Stealth idler/ dif gear/ ball dif parts
Nose brace tubes
New original steering setup
New turnbuckle kit
RPM white rod ends

Image

Pretty much done here - need to trim/paint the interior and I'm going to call it done..

RE-RE gold pan chassis
All original white parts except a battery cup/RPM rod ends/Steering rack
Fast Eddie Bearings
Futaba S148 servo
Futaba Magnum pistol grip 75mhz AM radio
RE-RE worlds turnbuckles
JConcepts retro RC10 tires on stock bead locks
Novak 410-M5 ESC
Team Associated Mr. Outlaw super stock motor (fastest stock AE motor - pulls wheelies like it should)
RE-RE body done in semi box art
White AE 2.2 wheels w/ Proline Electron's for running on the track
Also have a vintage 64p setup for it but it very slow with it, so I'm running the stock 81t spur, and the 23ish tooth pinion it had originally

Next to it is my RE-RE box art worlds RC10 that will get a spec AE 19t motor, AE 2.4 radio, and either a ARRMA/Novak ESC

Added my left over World's steering rack
Gotta get CVD's yet
Bought a new Robinson 78t spur gear
Lowered the body some
Adding a AE clear chassis protector sheet
Put an original very cut up battery cup in to fit a 2S lipo.. will post pic of that later!
