Re: My RC10 (runner)

Hi R16, this is your first post so welcome to the forum. That's an interesting car with an interesting mix of vintage and new parts. With the battery mounted so far forward, you must have a high front/rear weight bias. Have you ever weighed the car? Also, the linkages attached to the rear bulkhead a...

Re: tools fer cheatin!

Also, if you have access to an arbor press or even a drill press, you can use it to gently press the motor apart. I've used a flat motor plate screwed into place ( or a scrap aluminum plate with holes drilled to accept the motor), then secure the motor upright between a couple blocks on the press ta...

Re: Kyosho Rerelease Mod

Okay, now you're just showing off. :lol:
What a sweet collection!
You should post here more often.
I love messing with these little cars too. I was away from the hobby for 20+ years and I really missed a lot. I'm very happy to be back. :D

Re: A-Stamp cleanup/rebuild

Okay, this is where I post this totally useless comment.
Happiness is having an old RC10 to restore. :D

Re: RC10 Factory Works C2 "Tuber" Build

Bending my life away :mrgreen: I've come up with an idea for the rear, transmission guard tubes but not sure if it's going to stay, may re-do it, if so, need more tubing. :? C2Tuberrrcage.jpg C2Tuberrrcage2.jpg Hey Nomad.... Been giving this some thought. How about something like this? RC10 rear tu...

Re: RC10 Factory Works C2 "Tuber" Build

Looks good Nomad. To be honest, I was a bit skeptical when you posted yesterday's pic of the completed cage but now seeing it assembled on the car, it looks perfect. With the benefit of hindsight, do you think it would have been better to use solid aluminum rod rather than tube (i.e. easier to bend ...

Re: RC10 Factory Works C2 "Tuber" Build

"Mess", what mess? It looks great!
Now, if I'd done it, it would have looked like chicken poop or bubble gum. :lol:

It seems a crime to cover all that nice craftsmanship but I guess, since it's a buggy, it will need some kind of a body... or will it? :?:

Re: bottom of the spare parts bin buggy

I dunno, I guess I would go with the T4 and Reedy (I'm partial to both brands). I like Kyosho but I don't think I'd install a Kyosho motor in an AE car. It just seems wrong.

Re: A '91 Stealth RC10 project

Thanks. The photos are terrible; the parts actually look smoother than they appear in the photos. I'd decreased the dept of cut and adjusted the speed and feed rate on the final pass to give the parts a fine surface finish. That small pile of parts took me an insane number of hours to turn. If I had...

Re: A '91 Stealth RC10 project

Thanks for the compliments guys. I’m not sure I would call it “awesome”; I’m hoping to save the awesome stuff for the replica. But thanks again for the kind words. :D No CNC here, just a drill press, coping saws, files, etc. -- just common hand tools and a lot of patience. The chassis plate alone to...

Re: RC10 Factory Works C2 "Tuber" Build

Looks fine to me as well. Did you bend it over a piece of tubing? That curl at the trailing end looks really good. Will you screw it to the cage using some of your 0-80 hardware? The stainless screws against the aluminum will look great. Can't wait to see what you have in mind for the rest of the ca...

Re: RC10 Factory Works C2 "Tuber" Build

Okay, for my part, and since you've asked... Obviously this is just one member's opinion. I think the plates look great however, having spent so much time and effort making the welded tube joints look perfect, why would you cover them? I think plate gussets and brackets have their place but, if it w...

Re: RC10 Factory Works C2 "Tuber" Build

I really don't have a "shop", I have a few folding tables with an old laptop stuck in the corner. My lathe is in the closet! :mrgreen: Great artists over-come obstacles. Michelangelo had osteoarthritis, Van Gogh had epilepsy, Beethoven was deaf, Hank Williams had spina bifida occulta, Ste...
