Advanced Enginering Pro Street restoration

Post by Zac_F71 » Sat Sep 02, 2017 10:32 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..

EDIT - Pics attached below!

I've never seen one of those before, it's going to look killer all polished up , what year of manufacture was it , early 70s ?
If a jobs not worth doing then its certainly not worth doing well.
A problem shared is a problem halved but an advantage shared is no advantage at all.

Futaba S148 servo (bought)
Sanyo ESP 2000 7 cell NiCD battery (bought)

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

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 w/ green Race Prep connectors on the motor side, 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!

Well! It got real - VERY FAST! hahaha I got the car, scoped it out for a good hour, put the charger body on it, and realized the 1.5" fronts are TINY to small for my liking - SO I put out a search on OSRC Facebook for 1.9 See's or Tecnacrafts like what are on it

Got EVERYTHING! and realized I need more! haha so here is what I splurged on! where I got some of this stuff and for how much will remain my secret -

NOS See's 1.9 RC10 10 hole front wheels
NOS TMS 1.9 drag front tires
NOS MRC 2.2 rear tires
NOS MRC Grand Prix tire that was shaved into a slick
1 used Advanced Engineering rear mini mag slot with a good MRC tire
All new bearings from Avid
Sent out the chassis, and drawing to Jeff as well to get a new one or 2 made!
Going to figure out what hardware I need and order that from Team KnK as well tonight!
