Re: 10L Resto with a couple of questions

Loving the improvements so far, and looking forward the future mods! I picked up a 10LSO a couple of weeks ago and looking for any inspiration I can get! :D

Newbie's Start on a RC10LSO Build

Hey guys/gals! Name is Robb and just getting back into RC after about a 10+ year break, and have never run an onroad car before. But when a RC10L popped up on FB a couple of weeks ago, it reminded me of how much I loved these cars from afar while watching at the local carpet track, and all those bea...

Re: Newbie's Start on a RC10LSO Build

I was today years old when I learned that 1/10 pan car tire donuts are not a common item, and if you do find them, they are just as expensive as buying pre-glued wheel / tire combos! :shock: Getting back into this, I was kinda exited about buying donuts, and mounting them myself, and trueing them my...

Confused By New RC12L Plastic Coloring

I am purchasing a RC12L in mostly-built / not completed / sitting on a shelf since condition ..............and I love all that, but have questions about the coloring :?: I don't want to press the owner with it too much, because I think I am getting a deal, and I just want to gently walk in, pay the ...

Re: Confused By New RC12L Plastic Coloring

Uh, how else do you dye parts :?: I meant that if I picked up a new 12L back in the day, I would be all about getting that thing done and running. I wouldn't take the time to dye parts from the get go. Now maybe after owning it awhile, and the white parts kept bothering me, then maybe break it down...

Re: Confused By New RC12L Plastic Coloring

Apart from the boiling nylon parts to stress relieve them, you dyed them when new because the parts were still clean. Any dirt or oil on the surface would prevent the dye from being absorbed evenly, so if the parts were used you have to make sure they are spotlessly clean to get a perfect finish. M...

Re: Confused By New RC12L Plastic Coloring

This thing is ending up cleaner than I originally thought it would. I am happy with how it is sitting. I have taken it as far as I can for now, as I am waiting for a body, wheels / tires, and batteries (which are still open at this point). I will start a new thread with all its "glamour shots&q...

Re: Newbie's Start on a RC10LSO Build

Warmed up a little today, so good time to paint a body. I HATE trimming / painting poly/lexan bodies, so I don't put too much effort into it. I am a "looks good from three foot away" kind of guy, so I don't get too bothered by leaking paint and runs and such. This pic actually shows the wo...

Re: 3D printer for parts

I ran across this youtube video discussing threaded M3 brass inserts, and I just had to do some testing myself. G-UF4tv3Hvc I am using these https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B087NBYF65/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 which are shown in the video as the "mid priced" op...

Re: new Losi 22s '69 Camaro No Prep RTR drag car

Believe me, when this guy hits the curb upside down for the first time, I may cry a little. But that is just the game I guess. :wink: dr10 body 1.jpg Sorry you have not gotten good feedback on your original question. I know nothing about Spektrum products outside of Rx/Tx. The motor Kv is about twic...

Re: RC12L NIB

What do you mean by "build it?" If you want something AE 12ish to run around the driveway, there are cheap 12s out there to buy and build and run. I will sell you one if it will keep you from building this one just to run around. If you want to build a "shelf queen" that is built...
