Six gear idlers tech tip.

FullSizeRender.jpg
I remember having a really hard time with the tiny screws and allen key.
Well that was 32 years ago.

This is the easy way to get those little 0-80 x3/16" things in. The 0.35" allen key is a little fiddly!

Just get a 0.9mm MIP allen driver makes getting them in a breeze... :D

Re: My RC10 Restoration/Restomod

The set screws are probably .050 like Jeff said but they round out really easily, Your best bet is to get them out with an MIP allen key these are presision ground and will not round out, and will get right into the corners of the otherwise stripped hex. If you know any racers maybe they will have o...

I don't have any experience if you can use 5/16 bearing (~0.06mm difference ) instead of 8mm bearings.
They are fully compatible :D On front wheels at least. ;)

Re: Rc10 BRUSHED motor suggestions

Pinions are another can of worms.

Old US pinions are 4-40 and use a .050" (1.3mm) allen wrench
New US pinions are 5-40 and use 1/16th allen wrench
Anything from any where else in the world will be metric M3 and use 1.5mm allen wrench.

Re: Rc10 BRUSHED motor suggestions

The marks on the three sides of the the armarure core are made when the armature is balanced, as a reference by the person doing it.

As far as knowing the wind of the motor. There is no non destructive way to find out.

Yup you got it together perfectly.

As for the bronze/brass washer, yes you can shim the armature to miminize armature play but it's not super necessary for what you are doing.
The armature needs to have a little float, it will not run properly if you shimm it out completely.

Re: 6623 Diff Bushings

Both bushings are identical: ID x OD x HT - .125(1/8") x .2(13/64") x .125(1/8") The originals are teflon(PTFE) the ReRe are something else.

Re: 6623 Diff Bushings

There are no bearings available in the necessary size. :(

There was a after market diff tube with the outboard bushing replaced by a bearing but the diff tube is slightly larger and takes a 1/8 x 1/4" bearing, But that doesn’t help you ;P

Re: servo timeline

Like has been said the only way to pin point this is through research. finding old race reports and magazine adverts. Even eye witness information can be useful but should be taken with a pinch of salt. Here is a whole bunch of stuff to be taken with a pinch of salt, based on my memory from back in ...

Re: EUROS ITALY 1986

I saw that car at Club Heathrow in 1986. Nick Adams came down with 3 or 4 German guys who where the developers of this car. It was pretty unreliable and not well suited to carpet.
It would be cool to see more pictures. :D

Re: CHASSIS IDENTIFICATION fibre glass

I have just measured the chassis and it is 1/2” shorter. It must be what you guys say it is.. Short wheel base RC10 where all the rage in the UK in 1985/86, most people used the stock tub but using the extra holes in the nose plate would drill the chassis back ( actually 7/16") then cut the chassis...

Re: RC10 Transmission Help

The RC10 stealth transmission is "pretty much" the same as what is in modern cars, once you have upgraded to B4 clutch. All that changes is the gear ratio. This is a different problem, because you will need to run a larger spur gear to get your Final drive ratio to where you need it. You can safety ...

Re: RC10 Graphite resto

You can make it a team car with a 6 hole tower and top load team shocks. But then you'll have to find a gold motor guard. They didn't come with the 6gear graphite, but they did come with the team car. :wink: He's good, Graphite team car didn’t come with the motor gaurd either. :D The Graphite car c...

Re: Antoine ROSSETTI RC10 World's Car

AWESOME!!!!

Conclusion, the definitive car design was the RC10 team car from 1990.
Now I understand why Associated went back to the team car for the 1993 worlds stating that the stealth cars (B2-B4 prototypes) where no faster. :D
