RC10ST....Prototype truck...... (Non-Production)

Debuting at Florida Winter National's in 1991, and taking the top 2 spots, with Cliff Lett's first place win, a new era of race winning trucks was born.

The RC10T....(1991-1996) 2wd electric truck

The RC10T, using the same basic platform as it's RC10 counter part, was released in three kit forms. Starting with the #7001 (Truck), #7035 (Team Truck), and the #7011 (Sport truck), all of which went through rolling changes, and part revisions along the way, and will be covered later on. All RC10T's were released with a black chassis (either "B", or "C" stamp), Rear 1.32, and front 1.02 shocks (Hard anodized...7001, 7035, or Gold bodied, all 7011's) with gold springs, and all had the stealth transmission. All 10T's were built at the Cadillac address, in the USA.

Pre-production parts
Very doubtful pre-production parts every made it to any production kit.
Nose Plate:
Note, extra holes, and stamped front nose plate.

#7035 ( Team Truck )
(1992-1994)


The Team truck came in three versions.
Early: The chassis was now an in line B stamp. Full hex ball cups, standard nylon tranny brace, 20* blocks, thin webbed arms, thin 2 hole towers, narrow/multi paddle tires.... much like the #7001. This information is posted elsewhere on this site, I included it, but cannot confirm. It would have been a very short production run!

Mid: The more common type to be found, as it had the longer run of the three. Also using an in line B stamp chassis, AE had upgraded most everything else. Updated thicker arms, 3* rear mounts, 0* rear hub carriers, thick 3 hole (front), 4 hole (rear) towers, graphite tranny brace, aluminum front inline axles, and 30* blocks, and universals were added. Solid wheels, with standard multi rib front tires, and marked Pro-90 rears. Standard rear bulkhead.

Late: Now a C stamp chassis, everything from version #2 could be found on this last instalment of the #7035, with the exception of thick black composite arms, and a Worlds rear bulkhead.

All included the #6135 Team Truck body, and Hard anno shocks, full bearing set ( with the exception of #6596 slipper bushing ) and a Cadillac gear cover... Kits did not include any electronics.

---As in every case these are only guide lines, when one type was being replaced with another, parts were used up, and I'm sure a few variations exist.---
This information is courtesy of Charlie don't surf.
