Steel and Aluminum RC10 Outdrives-- Coming Soon!

Post by mk-Zero » Wed Sep 06, 2017 8:12 pm

As you are all probably aware, new Stealth outdrives are no longer available for RC10's. It is not clear if and when AE will be offering them again. I've been working on printed steel outdrives, but a better option is now available.

CPD will soon be offering new, machined Stealth outdrive sets in both hardened steel and aluminum.

Hardened Steel

Aluminum

The steel pair weighs in at 17 grams, the AL pair is only 6 grams! The hardened steel outdrives are well suited to mod-motored beasts, whereas the AL outdrives are better suited to stock motor cars, where reduced mass, both rotating and static, are critical, especially on the rear of a tail-heavy RC10!

These will be available for sale in a couple weeks. The price will be $32 per set, steel or aluminum, plus actual shipping costs. Sold in pairs only! I'll update this thread when they are ready to ship.

So you think the aluminum will hold up to a 17.5+ brushless?

I think they will be okay, but they will not be as durable as the hardened steel versions for sure. But for racers looking to shave some pretty serious rotating mass, it's a worthwhile tradeoff.

I plan to get a set in the hands of JKRacing for him to test in one of his stock motor buggies ASAP to get an assessment of how they hold up. I don't own any stock motors, so I can't do it :lol:

Can I order one steel and one alloy for oval racing?






J/K :lol: It's good to see someone jumping in to keep things ticking over. What grade alloy are the outdrives?

I gave Cliff Lett a little ribbing... Someone asked him about vintage parts drying up while he was watching the VONATS yesterday, and I said "i sure wish I could get some stealth outdrives." Lol.

As of this second... one of the out-drives is available from AE.

I found left ones on ebay cheap. But no right ones, hence why I finally was able to pull the trigger and get rights from AE and lefts from Ebay. :)
