Wheel base RC10CE vs Worlds Car

Post by BACK_AT_IT » Fri May 19, 2017 5:34 am

I'm rebuilding and modernizing a RC10CE (last produced gold pan) which I bought in pretty rough shape on eBay. I've put modern 2.2 wheels on it modern electronics (hobbywing, skyfly) and its running well. I am looking to replace the old rc10 dog bones with worlds car CVA axles. I'm just wondering if the rear arms on the worlds car are longer or the CVA assembly. Because as is my old rc10 wheel base seems a bit narrow. I know the modern wheel rims are recessed quite a bit more than the old wheels. Any insight would be appreciated.

Thx

It's possible you have recessed/offset wheels. Really depends on the make/model of the wheel because there's so many out there from past to present.

I'm sure someone will pipe up if I'm wrong... but I believe your options are:
  • Convert to the Worlds ReRe CVAs. You would need the appropriate rear hub carriers and bearings to accommodate them too.
You definitely would want to have some shims handy to help spacing/slop.

"Modern wheels" is kind of a broad statement. You could run modern 2.2 JC Racing wheels on your stock 1/4" axles. Or, you can get the cva's from the Worlds car, properly sized bearing for your stock hubs, and run the 2.2 wheels from the Worlds car.

But if you mean like B4 and B5 wheels, you will need a combination longer arms, longer cva's, maybe wider hubs, wheels hexes, etc. It really depends on how much money you want to part with.

I read that as he already had the wheels and was looking to upgrade from the bones.

B4 2.2" wheels and still super easy to come by that'd fit the ReRe rear axle. IMO, the only reason to do hex conversion is if you have one set of tires you want to flip back and forth between your RC10 and your B5/B6.
