Advanced Enginering Pro Street restoration

Post by Zac_F85 » Mon Sep 04, 2017 11:14 pm

Sold my A&L trailing arm Chassis RC10, and Tamiya Frog to get this car off Facebook.. Had never seen one before and seeing it get bumped, and not sold was making me sad for how cool it is! HAD TO HAVE it once he took my offer! It is in good original shape, also has Technacraft Laserlite wheels on it to boot!! Powered my an Associated MSC, and Kyosho 240ST motor.

The plan -
Full resto with 98% old school parts
Clean, and show polish the wheels
All new (old) hardware
Possible new fiberglass chassis(s) - 1 redone stock in white, and 1 modded in black (cut by Jeff at Factory Works)

Electronics -
Futaba Junior FP-T2PKA TX
Futaba FP-R102GR RX
Futaba S148 servo
Novak or Tekin ESC
Some sort of 10t-15t mod motor
2S lipo unless I can find a killer deal on a older 6 or 7 cell NiMH race pack

Body choices -
?Parma? 64 Thunderbolt (have)
Bolink 68 Camaro
RJ Speed 69 Charger
More to come I'm sure..

Electronics are being sorted!

Decided to go with -
Futaba Junior FP-T2PKA TX (bought)
Futaba FP-R102GR RX (bought)
Futaba S148 servo (bought)
Sanyo ESP 2000 7 cell NiCD battery (bought)
Parma Team Spec hand wound 15x3 NOS motor (Let's hope it shows up from China)
Parma NOS motor cap kit got with that ^
Novak T-4 ESC
Race Prep orange motor connectors

Also got a few new other new parts -
AE black RC10 battery cups
Kimbrough medium servo saver
NOS Parma 17900 steering link kit
NOS Parma 7054 graphite rear axle
Parma body posts

Possibly a Parma 41 Willys


Changed my mind and going with period parts- Tbolt was sold to be reproduced - I will buy one when they are available to put on this as well as the Charger, and possibly a few other bodies

Got the car, and all the parts! Tore it down as well! Ordered new bearings from Avid, NOS See's 1.9 RC10 front wheels, and NOS TMS front runners! Waiting to get a pair of NOS MRP Grand Prix rear tires as well!!

Sending the chassis out as well to Jeff (GoMachV) to get 2 new chassis cut! 1 will be white and stock w/ minimum holes, the other will be black, and modded, with side wings, and holes for RC10 battery cup, servo mount holes, ect..

Also going to order new hardware as well I'll report back on that as it will take a bit it track it all down due to non common sizes..

Decided to stick with the Tekin ESC green Race Prep connectors on the motor, NOS Parma 15x3 motor w/ Parma wire, Futaba radio/servo, and the ESP 2000 7 cell NiCD - pretty period for sure!

Going to bid on some AE mini mag slots as well to run foam tires, and a more correct setup as well!

I had one of them back in the day, bought it a couple of weeks before the Parma Hemi Coupe came out, 1990-91 or so. Mine was the basic kit with white plastic wheels and foam tires. The wheels come up often on Ebay, they were used in 1/8 gas onroad racing back in the day hence the 2 and 3 screw mounting.

Thats a nice project - something a bit different both in design and materials.
