Hi guys, I've been on a long R/C break........

Hi everyone, boy I've been on a long R/C break as life and work happened and slowly took over. I think the last time i was fairly active here was before the B5/B5m came out (everything is mid-motor now???). After a wild and still ongoing covid year last year, I had a little more free time and manage...

Re: The most "rare" production RC10 ever... (RC10 GX ?)

Also not sure outside of the US, but my take on this would be some variation of these: 1. Worlds graphite kit 2. TQ10 3. B2 Mainly the short production kits and unique rare parts that separated them from all the others making them harder to replicate from parts (worlds graphite chassis, tq10 chassis...

Re: Tamiya Neo Fighter buggy DT03, Re-re Frog, and Top Force builds

Frog progress, nothing special but a simple fun build. MIP ball diff and blackfoot idler gear, universals, some crp parts, and a slightly less sloppy front suspension. More to follow.........

Re: Tamiya Neo Fighter buggy DT03, Re-re Frog, and Top Force builds

Alright, I got this frog 95% done, just a few details left to finish such as trimming the front upper shock screws, custom front shorty bumper, and custom rear shock mount braces. I stuffed a novak duster esc and xxl receiver down in there and have an old rebuilt yellow can race prep mod motor to re...

Re: ** Build of the Month Contest - July 2023 ** - Winner - dinglem

RC10T 17.5 runner "M.I.P." This truck started out as a mid run 10t ebay junker I picked up about 15 years ago initially to salvage it for the plastic parts. The left over nose plate, nose tubes, and chassis were all bent. When covid hit I decided to do something with the left over chassis ...

That is one of the nicest 'swiss cheese' saves I have seen.
Thanks! It was an idea I had that helped motivate me to put the truck back together and give it new life.

Good win dinglem! I'm glad I was able to participate in the BOTM this month. This is easily one of my favorite sections to view here on 10talk. Always so much creativity and so many nice builds/restorations to showcase! 8)

Re: ** Build of the Month Contest - August 2023 ** - Winner - juicedcoupe

Kyosho Optima Mid Re-Re w/ Exo LWB chassis The Optima Mid series of cars meant a lot to me since they were the ones that I dreamed about throughout the late 80's but was never able to put one in my own stable. Then the rc10t came out and I just focused on racing a rc10 and 10t. Fast forward to 2022 ...

Re: Aftermarket Kyosho hop-up parts

I can vouch for the EXO parts. The chassis kit and cva axles are great. Even the turnbuckles are great for the price. Im in the US and ordered directly from their site and the parts arrived in a little less than 2 weeks. The cva are rebuildable and a direct replacement for the stock parts and the ch...

Re: ** Build of the Month Contest - November 2023 ** - Winner - jcwrks

I like that grave digger body on Brayduns gt. I had that body in the 90's on an MT converted rc10 with lunchbox wheel/tires/adapters that got served some major thrashing bitd. Otherwise for me it had to be jcwrks' rc10. That car has pretty much every part I remember drooling over as a teen when I us...

Re: RC10CC classic clear wait list....

I don’t think thing the final price of $400 is that far off…considering all the special production and materials. The JJ Ultima is right there too at that $390. I felt $319 was about right for the rc10cc since it was being advertised as just a display piece. If they wanted $400 for a rere rc10 kit ...
