25 YEARS OF THE RC10 (See page 1)

Post by slotcarrod »

This is a tribute to the great line of RC10 buggies produced since 1984-2009 (RC10 - RC10B4). This is a work in progress. It will take some time and help from fellow members, as we all learn new things about the different versions. So please be patient! I will also be updating completed cars as new information comes to light.

THE EDINGER RC10 1984-86

Post by slotcarrod »

EDINGER RC10

Kit numbers used for the early RC10's

6000 basic kit, less all electrical
6010 full kit, less battery
6012 full kit, less battery, body, wing
6016 full kit, ball bearings, less battery
6020 full kit, with 6-cell battery pack

The Manual https://img2.associatedelectrics.com/pdf/cars_and_trucks/RC10/Original/rc10_manual.pdf (Shown is the Cadillac manual but they mostly have the same content)

The very first production RC10 was manufactured at 1928 East Edinger Ave in Santa Ana California. Hence the name Edinger RC10. This name can be given to a select few RC10's and we will go through the differences in the later Cadillac (produced at 3585 Cadillac Ave Costa Mesa California) and earlier Edinger RC10's.
DSC07388.jpg
The address on the box is one of the first tell tale signs.

The front of a Edinger box.
DSC07403.jpg
I have a Cadillac box with the same wording on the front, but most Cadillac boxes do not have the ORRCA National Champion on them. They have the IFMAR World and ROAR National Champion shown in the top right corner.

The ends of the early Edinger box were stamped with ink for the model types.
DSC07401.jpg
The ends of the Cadillac box were printed on paper and glued to the box. The early Cadillac box has a ink stamp on the printed paper as well saying "Electronic Speed Controller Not Included".

The sides of the box.

This box has printed labels but it has no extra ink stamp (ELECTRONIC SPEED CONTROLLER NOT INCLUDED) that the early Cadillac boxes did. Picture courtesy of RC10resto

(picture pending)

The early documents
DSC08094.jpg
The Decal

This decal can also be found in many of the later Associated kits, even found in some of the early RC10B2's, but was very common in all early kits.
AE009_zps6ab649b0.jpg
The Tool

The early tool had no AE stamping and was slightly different with no turnbuckle hex on the end. The AE stamped tool could be found in all other kits until Associated started using plastic tools like those found in the B3 and B4. (This picture provided by Brian, RC10resto)
RC10tool001.jpg
Some of the easy visual differences:

The early front tires are a 7 rib (The 2 center ribs are fused, the tires have been called 8 rib in the past) with Good Year on the early and no Good Year on the early to mid generation. Mid generation had Proline grooved tires part #6866. Cadillac Cars had a 4 rib. Late Edinger cars had 4 rib front tires like the Cadillac cars.
DSC08067.jpg
DSC08050.jpg
The rear tires
DSC08066.jpg
The colour of the chassis is of a light gold anodizing. However I do have a light gold new AB stamp chassis. The Cadillac and mid to late Edinger anodizing tends to be a darker gold.

The shock towers on the early to mid Edinger are a different type of G10 fiberglass, they are a bit thicker and are milled. The later towers look a bit different, they are stamped not milled. The stamping makes the edges look like they are sanded while the milled early Edinger towers are straight cut on the edges.

Notice the shock cap gaskets are much smaller on the early Edinger.

Edinger on the right Cadillac on the left
DSC08065.jpg
Early Edinger Chassis had no stamp on them
DSC08068.jpg
DSC08069.jpg
Later gold chassis had A, AB and B stamps on them. The first Edinger A stamp chassis had the A on the bottom and later was changed to the top. There are a few very rare black and non Edinger gold chassis out there with stamps on the bottom. I think the person doing the stamping that day let a few slip!

The early wing buttons are diamond shaped
DSC08055.jpg
The early Edinger did not come with a clear lexan driver like all later kits did.
DSC07390.jpg
The early rear shock spring cups are capturing the spring
DSC08056.jpg
The front spring cups did not have a slot cut to slide over the shock shaft, this can be found front and rear on early Cadillac cars as well.
DSC08058.jpg
The front spindles had more material added on later cars to give the part more strength. (This information and picture provided by Brian RC10resto)
EarlyProductionRC10d006.jpg
The battery straps are G10 fiberglass, later Edinger and Cadillac were nylon
DSC08062.jpg
The bell crank is the same on both sides. Notice the early type ball cups, they are totally round and do not have a hex towards the ball side.
DSC08059.jpg
The wiper arms are Parma type on the early cars
DSC08060.jpg
The Gear Covers

Early to mid Edingers had a clear gear cover, early were thin plastic (very fragile). These could be found in a thicker clear plastic in later production.
DSC08063.jpg
The mid to late Edinger gear covers (picture courtesy of CamplinP). The one on the left is from the same mold as the early clear but with a semi translucent plastic. The one on the right is found on the late Edinger's, Cadillac, Graphite, early 6 gear CE and the TQ10.
gearcovers.jpg

Some of the less visual things are:

The shock pistons have a slot in the sides with only the center shock shaft hole. Poorly seen on the top of the piston on image 119 and the bottom of the piston on image 124. Also note the aluminum spacer between the two red o-rings.

On the Edinger, the transmission drive gear pivot, part # 6609 is attached to the plate with an "E" clip (shown on the left images 27 and 28). The Cadillac is threaded and attached with a nut. (shown on the right Fig. 27 and Fig. 28)

Chrome wheels shown in picture are not original but were option parts. Notice the different tires! Proline made them, but the Proline name wasn't on the sidewall. You could also buy them separately as an option tire, Associated part #6866 Proline grooved tire. Information on mid gen tires provided by scr8p and a01butal.
MidEdinger.jpg
The rear shock tower.

Notice how thick they look and the different milling of the fiberglass.

The Late Edinger

Very much the same as the Cadillac RC10. The first production of the NEW 4 rib and knobby tires, did not have the "Team Associated" or any writing on the sides. These (without writing) could be found on the late Edinger car circa 1986.

THE CADILLAC RC10 1986-90

Post by slotcarrod »

CADILLAC RC10

6000 basic kit, less all electrical
6010 full kit, less battery
6012 full kit, less battery, body, wing
6016 full kit, ball bearings, less battery
6020 full kit, with 6-cell battery pack

The Manual https://img2.associatedelectrics.com/pdf/cars_and_trucks/RC10/Original/rc10_manual.pdf

The new address for Associated, 3585 Cadillac Ave Costa Mesa California. Original Gold short arm RC10's produced in this location to be called the Cadillac RC10. Most RC10's up to the B2 and I think even the B3 (not sure if the B3 was offshore) were produced at the Cadillac location. The Associated web site says they moved to the Cadillac address in 1987, however I have many Associated documents that are dated 1986 and all have the Cadillac address. If 1987 is the true date, there are far more Edinger RC10's out there than we think. It is possible that many were made at the Edinger address and packaged with new Cadillac address on the boxes.
DSC08075.jpg
DSC08076.jpg
DSC08086.jpg
Very common mid Generation Box art for the typical Cadillac RC10. Note the 6 time IFMAR on the lower right and the now missing ORRCA from the Edinger and early Cadillac boxes. The top left now says "Radio and Electronic Speed Control Not Included".
DSC08092.jpg
DSC08090.jpg
The address says it all!
DSC08091.jpg

This is the end of a early Cadillac box. The box is exactly the same as an Edinger but has a printed label on the sides with an ink stamp added. Later boxes were print only. Of course it has the Cadillac address as well.
DSC08087.jpg
The standard Team Associated 4 rib front kit tire part # 6868. Early Edinger tires were part # 6865. The funny thing is AE used 6865 for a while on all the four rib tires when they first came out. The first production never had letters on the sides.
DSC08082.jpg
The first Team Associated knobby's used the same part number (6815) as the early AYK rear tires found on the Edinger cars. Clearly different tires, later they switched the part number to 6818 as shown in a March 1988 catalog. The first production never had Team Associated letters on the sides.
DSC08083.jpg
The updated bell crank that was used on all the RC10 types, up to the Team Cars and Stealth CE. Notice the ball cup now has a hex towards the ball end.
DSC08084.jpg
The nylon battery straps that were used on all types of RC10's up to the Team Cars and RC10T.
DSC08078.jpg
The tear drop shaped wing button used on all rc10's up to the B3. The RC10 Worlds and the B2 had black or white, and all B3 buttons were black.
DSC08077.jpg
The updated wiper arm, used up to the sport RC10B3
DSC08079.jpg
The later Edinger and Cadillac semi translucent gear cover. A much stronger type of plastic.

Note the bulkhead has long wing mount tubes. This was later updated to shorter wing tubes to accommodate running a longer rear turn buckle (the ball stud was under the wing tube). Known on the RC10 Graphite car circa 1989. This was found on a 1988 Cadillac RC10 courtesy of RC10resto. It is possible that a few late cars may of also had the "new" rear shock tower with 2 mounting positions per side, but I have no solid proof of this!

THE HORIZON TQ10 Mid 1989-90

Post by slotcarrod »

Horizon TQ10

The TQ10 was designed and produced by Associated for Horizon Hobbies (a major hobby distributor). This car came with a unique graphite chassis (more square edged and wider than the RC10 Graphite). The first production with no holes for a rear chassis plate/motor guard (information by Ken THEYTOOKMYTHUMB), light weight wheels, TQ tires and the Sidewinder body. The later version had the same upgrades found on the RC10 Graphite, rear holes in chassis for guard, wide arms, rear bulkhead, turnbuckles, black idler gears, inline axles and four hole front shock tower. Late versions started shipping from Horizon in February 1990. Not sure the exact date early short arm TQ10's were shipped but RC10resto (Brian) found a review of it in an Horizon Hobby magazine dated April 1989.

Here is a great RC Car Action article dated January 1990 from the scans archive courtesy of FifthScaleRacer: http://www.rc10talk.com/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=166

THE RC10 GRAPHITE Late 1990-91

Post by slotcarrod »

THE RC10 GRAPHITE

Kit part numbers used for this car

6025 bushings only
6030 includes bearings

The Manual http://www.teamassociated.com/pdf/cars_and_trucks/RC10/Team/graph_manual.pdf

The RC10 Graphite was the answer to the Horizon TQ10! With an all new woven carbon fiber chassis and many updated suspension components. The RC10 Graphite was released for the hard core racer. Much like the TQ10, you were expected to provide the ESC and motor.

The Box Art

The RC10 Graphite came with the new lightweight and sleek Protech II body.

The Carbon Fiber Chassis
DSC08164.jpg
DSC08166.jpg
The rear of the chassis had two holes for a motor mount brace. Early RC10 Graphite cars did not have the holes. Like the TQ10, the motor mount brace never came with the Graphite car and had to be purchased separately.

Notice also the AE is cut with different cutters here, the top two with two different ball end-mills and the 3rd with a flat end-mill (comment courtesy of Ruffy)

The Tires

The three rib TQ71 front tires and 2 1/8 (2.125) TQ lightweight one piece wheels. The early type RC10 Graphite had spiked TQ front tires.
DSC08156.jpg
A look at the inside of the wheel, the new wide front arms and inline axle.
DSC08159.jpg
The rear TQ21 tire on lightweight 2.0 TQ wheel. Early graphite cars had the Pyramid Spike TQ tires.
DSC08158.jpg
The New Front Shock Tower

This came with 4 upper shock mounting holes and new holes to mount the turnbuckle ball stud inboard. This made for a totally new geometry on the RC10, better suited for the new wider front A arms and new inline axles.
DSC08160.jpg
The new wide front A arms, inline axles and steering block (inline with the steering block hinge pin). Also showing the new adjustable turnbuckles.
DSC08163.jpg
A picture of a Cadillac Gold pan showing short arms, threaded rod for turnbuckles, and trailing axle (axle behind the steering block hinge pin).
DSC08162.jpg
The Transmission

This received some great updates. The new black idler gears are more efficient and much stronger. The new CNC cut steel gears are more efficient as well. Efficiency was a major problem with RC10 transmissions prior to the Graphite RC10. If you raced, you had to spend countless hours of filing and polishing to free up the binding. The black idler gears alone, helped make older transmissions smooth.
DSC08169.jpg
The Rear Shock Tower

This received two new holes to mount the shocks inboard. This helped with the overall suspension geometry. Drastic changes were made to the rear suspension.
DSC08175.jpg
The Rear Bulkhead

This received a makeover with shorter wing tubes and new ball stud holes to allow the tie rod to be longer. The new ball stud hole is now under the wing tube.
DSC08178.jpg
The Rear Suspension

So now the longer rear adjustable turnbuckle and 1.5 degree rear hubs for a total of 3 degrees toe in and the new upper shock mounts, make for a much more stable RC10. Also the new universals (I am sure made by Yokomo).
DSC08180.jpg
A nice example of an early Graphite RC10 courtesy of Reg. Notice the front tires are spiked and the rear tires are pyramid type. The early Graphite chassis can be found without the AE logo. These are very rare!

THE RC10CE CHAMPIONSHIP EDITION 1990-92

Post by slotcarrod »

THE RC10CE (CHAMPIONSHIP EDITION)

Kit # 6011

The later CE also used all the original RC10 kit numbers (6000,6010,6012,6016 and 6020) as the original RC10 was fazed out. This all happened about when the Team Car appeared and the CE became the entry level car. There was also a late CE stealth kit # 6014 that came with a Novak Rooster ESC.

The Manual Part A http://www.teamassociated.com/pdf/cars_and_trucks/RC10/CE/10ce90_manuala.pdf
The Manual Part B http://www.teamassociated.com/pdf/cars_and_trucks/RC10/CE/10ce90_manualb.pdf
The Manual Part C http://www.teamassociated.com/pdf/cars_and_trucks/RC10/CE/10ce90_manualc.pdf
The Manual Part D http://www.teamassociated.com/pdf/cars_and_trucks/RC10/CE/10ce90_manuald.pdf

The RC10CE kit had the longest production run of any RC10, from 1990 to 1996 in various forms with many updates along the way. The CE was considered an entry level car with bushings and a manual speed control, but with added bearings and a ESC it was the choice of many racers over the ridged Graphite car. The first generation had most of the updated parts that came on the Graphite RC10 except the universal drive shafts and chassis. The CE's used the Protech II body and dish type 3 piece wheels. The early CE had the 4 hole front shock tower, bottom load shocks (original type 0.56), A stamp chassis with no holes for Stealth transmission, original type wing and Cadillac gear cover. The mid generation had the new top loaded 0.71 shocks (one of the best updates) with gold aluminium caps, 6 hole front tower, early Stealth gear cover, AB stamp chassis with updated holes for Stealth and front battery box and new Team Car type wing (#6182 high down force wing kit). The Late generation CE is the same as the mid, but with black plastic shock caps and the later updated Stealth gear cover. These three versions came with the original six gear transmission. A much later Stealth version is covered further on!

The new top load shocks used a assembly tool, the early shock assembly tool was flat on the small end, later getting an angled cut so you could remove the retaining clip easier when rebuilding the shocks! This tool is used on the current RC10B4 but it's black now!

THE RC10 TEAM CAR 1990-94

Post by slotcarrod »

THE RC10 TEAM CAR

Kit # 6035

The Manual Part A https://img2.associatedelectrics.com/pdf/cars_and_trucks/RC10/Team/teamcar_manuala.pdf
The Manual Part B http://www.teamassociated.com/pdf/cars_and_trucks/RC10/Original/teamcar_manualb.pdf
The Manual Part C http://www.teamassociated.com/pdf/cars_and_trucks/RC10/Original/teamcar_manualc.pdf
Exploded View of CE and Team Cars http://www.teamassociated.com/pdf/cars_and_trucks/RC10/Worlds_Car/10ce_old.pdf

The RC10 Team Car was released the same year as the Championship Edition (1990). Many of the changes that took place on the CE were applied to the Team Car as well. The aluminium tub was the main chassis that all the Team Associated drivers used, so the tub Team Car was released before the Graphite Team Car. Many of the current parts from the Graphite RC10 were used, but there were a few very significant changes like the new 2.25 Stealth and the new hard anodized teflon coated shocks. The eye catcher was the new black tub, nose plate, motor plate and nose tubes, going away from the traditional gold. The Viper body and new high down force wing. They used the same TQ range of tires found on the CE. Much like the Worlds Car, you can also find the later versions with a mix of black and white and even all black plastic as the white plastic was fased out.

The Box Art

They never changed the box art for the Team Car. Using the CE box art and just adding black to the chassis and shocks. The triangle in the top right corner gave all the new features. They did change the art work on the sides though.

The Chassis

This is an example of an early Team Car chassis. It is an A stamp with a B stamp over top (B for stealth). The black Stealth chassis is known to have A stamp only. This was either an oversight or the very first batch made, In any case very rare. The second picture has the offset holes for the battery. Later B stamp chassis had extra holes added to extend and center the battery in the chassis. The last version of the Team Car could be found with a C stamp chassis!
TamChassisAP1080544.jpg
TeamChassisP1080551.jpg
The Springs

The main difference was with the green springs that came with the kit. The early green springs had a translucent green coating making them look almost like they were anodized. The later green springs are much darker and look like powder coating. The later colour is the same that is used on the current RC10B4. The short green spring shown is the translucent version, the longer green spring is the later type.
DSC08378.jpg
The early and late Stealth braces

The early brace shown on the left made the chassis flex a bit up in the rear. So Associated moved the rear holes a bit further back in the later version, shown on the right. This problem was never solved with the brace only, as you still needed to add washers between the brace and the rear bulkhead.
DSC08241.jpg
The early and late slipper pads and bushing

Early top, late bottom. Associated found that they did not need to use expensive bearings, they later switched to bushings. The pad material was improved also.
DSC08301.jpg
The early and late gear covers

Early on the right, late on the left.
DSC08239.jpg
The four versions of 81 tooth 48 pitch spur gears that could be found on Team Cars

The very early version is white with the 8 holes for diff balls (made for the original 6 gear transmission) and 2 for Stealth mounting. The white one with 2 holes only, came very quickly after. Both black versions were much later when Associated was slowly changing over to black plastic and they could be found in very late kits towards the end of the Team Car. The 2 hole spurs are what should be on the Stealth, however as Associated ran out of stock they used what they had. Spur gears were a top seller and still are, so they ran out of stock often!

The early and late shock pistons

A vast improvement going to the white teflon pistons. These pistons came with three different hole sizes for greater tuning options (#3 shown in picture). These pistons are used even today on the RC10B4.

The three versions of shock bushings found on Team cars

Early to late shown left to right. The shock cap can now pivot on the later ones. Last production in all black not shown.
DSC08221.jpg
The two versions of ball cups found on Team Cars

Early on the right, late on the left. The late ball cup had the hex extended all the way to the end.
DSC08219.jpg
The early and late shock towers

Like the CE, the very first Team Cars came with the four hole front towers and later ones were quickly updated to the six hole.
DSC08342.jpg
This photo (courtesy of Asso_man) shows an early transition six hole tower that was milled instead of the later stamped. Also note the dirty but translucent green springs.

The Early RC10 Graphite Team Car (pictures courtesy of Reg)

This car was very much the same as the Graphite RC10. The only differences were the new Stealth transmission and Teflon coated (green) Team Shocks. Like the RC10 Graphite car, the early Team version had the four hole front shock tower.

The Late RC10 Team Car Graphite (Pictures courtesy of Reg)

This car has a unique graphite chassis, not found on any other RC10. It had most of the upgrades found on the Worlds Car, and by many people, has been mistakenly called a Graphite Worlds Car. Associated never made a Graphite Worlds Car!

THE RC10 CHAMPIONSHIP CAR (STEALTH) 1992-96

Post by slotcarrod »

THE RC10 CHAMPIONSHIP CAR (STEALTH)

Kit # 6011

The later CE also used all the original RC10 kit numbers (6000,6010,6012,6016 and 6020) as the original RC10 was fazed out. This all happened about when the Team Car appeared and the CE became the entry level car. There was also a late CE stealth kit # 6014 that came with a Novak Rooster ESC.

The mid generation Stealth RC10CE (pictures courtesy of "RC10resto" Brian)

This version is very much the same as the early but with very rare white Worlds Car type rear arms. Again notice the mix match of gold parts as Associated was using up old stock. Now also with Worlds type aluminium inline axle.

The new Worlds type rear arms with shorter inner hinge pin and extra bracing in the center.

The Mid to Late Zebra Stealth RC10CE

Pictures of this perfect black and white example are courtesy of Darrin (hudson hornet!) Note the transition of black parts much like the Worlds Car and the use of black aluminium shock caps, found only in a few kits as AE had already switched to plastic caps! Again AE was using up old stock parts but in this case probably ran out of plastic caps and used aluminium for a production run or two! Now using plastic 4-40 nuts on the shocks and the new upper shock bushing! This car shown also came with a Worlds type nose plate, Step Pin rear tires and a Reedy Force II, body type not known!

DSC06161_zps4d94bd17.jpg
DSC06163_zpsa2df0ae7.jpg
The Late Black Stealth RC10CE

This was the very last production of the gold pan and was made even during the RC10B2 production run! The late CE has a C stamp chassis. It shared many upgraded parts from the Worlds Car and even the T2 and B2.
Worlds car parts included the rear arms, new short eared rear bulkhead, stronger black impregnated composite plastic front arms. New black plastic all around on the very late CE. T2/B2 shock collars, upper and lower spring retainers, updated RCPS style turnbuckles. This version could also be found with a mix of white and black parts and even the Viper body instead of the Protech II.

THE RC10 WORLDS CAR 1994-95

Post by slotcarrod »

THE RC10 WORLDS CAR

KIT # 6037

The Manual Part A http://www.teamassociated.com/pdf/cars_and_trucks/RC10/Worlds_Car/WorldsCar_manuala.pdf
The Manual Part B http://www.teamassociated.com/pdf/cars_and_trucks/RC10/Worlds_Car/WorldsCar_manualb.pdf
The Manual Part C http://www.teamassociated.com/pdf/cars_and_trucks/RC10/Worlds_Car/WorldsCar_manualc.pdf
Parts List for RC10-RC10 Worlds http://www.teamassociated.com/pdf/cars_and_trucks/RC10/CE/cat_rc10.pdf

This car was loosely based on Brian Kinwald's 1993 World Champion winning car. (If you want to see a great reproduction of the Kinwald car, look at this link http://www.rc10talk.com/viewtopic.php?f=35&t=5503&start=0 ) Based on the Team Car, many small improvements had been made to make the Worlds Car. The RC10 Worlds Car was the final version of the "pan" type RC10. It is one of the most sought after cars for the die hard collector. There were two versions, the early had mostly white plastic (but the arms) and the late version had all black plastic.
DSCN0427_zpsg3cjymiu.jpg
The Early Box Art

The top had a gold decal added with 93-94 World Champion Replica.
DSC08209.jpg
Notice Kinwald on Craig Drescher's shoulders. All pictures of Kinwald were removed from later production boxes.
DSC08210.jpg
Notice the Kinwald picture next to Masami Hirosaka, again missing on the later box!
DSC08211.jpg
DSC08212.jpg
The Late Worlds Car Box

Notice the missing gold label and the missing pictures of Kinwald. This was when there was bad blood with Kinwald and Associated. Kinwald jumped ship to Losi for more money! Associated deleted his name and pictures from the box!
LateWorldsCarbox.jpg
Notice no picture next to Masami, just the 12 time IFMAR logo.
a120120worlds20mon20final20013.jpg
The Body

The body was the RCPS Turbo Mirage with the air scoop (not shown) on the left ESC side for cooling the ESC. (At that time RCPS was a division of Team Associated, purchased from Cliff Lett)
DSC08213.jpg
The Nose Plate

The Worlds Car nose plate was a modified version of the standard Team Car nose plate with most of the rear section removed. You could not run a longer wheel base any more, not many people ever did in any case. The modification was done to remove some weight off of the front of the car and now the steering servo could sit lower for a lower CG. This nose plate mod was practiced by Team Drivers since the RC10's early inception.
DSC08188.jpg
The Car
DSC08187.jpg
DSC08186.jpg
The Milled Chassis

The chassis was a standard Team Car chassis in 2024-T6 aluminium with four milled slots (2 under the battery and one on each side. The Worlds chassis had a C stamped on them.
DSC07625.jpg
The Fiberglass 6 Cell Battery Strap.

At this time there was an option 7 cell battery strap that looked similar but was used on the RC10T.
DSC08195.jpg
The Rear Shock Tower

Made from light weight carbon fiber with all new shock mounting positions. Notice the new short eared bulkhead.
DSC08190.jpg
The Front Shock Tower

Now with only 3 mounting holes, also made from carbon fiber. Notice the new steering bellcranks, they only came with bushings on the Worlds Car, they were black in later cars. The front and rear shock collars used aluminium screws. The front body mount is now located on top of the bell crank.
DSC08192.jpg
The Rear Bulkhead

All new and final generation of RC10 bulkheads. No longer had the outer ball stud mounting holes (shorter ears) and had a new ball stud position just to the left of the wing tube (now using a shorter turnbuckle). The Worlds Car came with a carbon fiber Stealth transmission brace and aluminium screws for the transmission.
DSC08198.jpg
The Rear Arms

This is an example of a standard RC10 rear arm.
DSC08204.jpg
The new Worlds Car arms are black and made of a more rigid carbon impregnated plastic. They now use a shorter inner hinge pin and have a lower profile with extra support (the X, shown under the drive shaft) in the middle.
DSC08203.jpg
The Rear Wheels

All new 2.175 yellow wheel (6805Y) and Proline XTR Flat Stubbie tires
DSC08197.jpg
The Front Wheels

Yellow three peice wheels with aluminium screws and Proline XTR Flat Four Ribbed tires. The kits never came with the Proline Wide Five tires that Kinwald had used on his original car.
DSC07627.jpg
The All Black Late Version

The main difference is the box missing Kinwald (though not just all black cars) and every part is black plastic. Now it is possible that there was a mix in black and white plastic much like the later Stealth CE, but I have seen no proof of this yet. One thing I noticed in a kit I am building is the new type B2/T2 shock collars do not include the aluminium screws. Not sure if this was just the case of my kit but that collar would use a shorter 4-40 screw than the shown in the manual for the old collar. Of the few all black World Car's I have seen, none have the plastic shock caps.

This is a nice example courtesy of blown5.0

THE RC10B2 (1995-1997)

Post by slotcarrod »

THE RC10B2

Kit # 9000 Racer Kit (Team Kit)
Kit # 9001 Basic Kit
Kit # 9011 Sport Kit

The Manual http://www.teamassociated.com/pdf/cars_and_trucks/RC10B2/Team/rc10b2_manual.pdf
Parts List http://www.teamassociated.com/pdf/cars_and_trucks/RC10B2/Team/cat_10b2.pdf
2.4 Stealth Instructions http://www.teamassociated.com/pdf/cars_and_trucks/RC10B2/9350.pdf

The RC10B2 was a complete change for Associated. Gone was the aluminum pan chassis, now changed to composite, and the 2.25 Stealth transmission now changed to a 2.4 ratio and a lower center of gravity. The car that most racers expected Associated to release was one of the Stealth Car's (used at the 89 Worlds in Australia and the 91 Detroit Worlds with a different version). You can see great pictures of both Stealth Cars here: 91 http://www.teamassociated.com/pdf/cars_and_trucks/RC10/detroitrc10.pdf and 89 http://www.teamassociated.com/pdf/cars_and_trucks/RC10/australianrc10.pdf . Even though the Stealth Car was never produced, the new B2 shared much of it's geometry with the 89 Stealth Car. The RC10B2 at it's debut at the IFMAR Worlds in Japan in 96 managed to TQ and win in the hands of Matt Francis.

The RC10B2 was very short lived, for only two years. A 100% original B2 is one of the hardest of the RC10's to find. This was mainly due to a short production run and the B3 conversion kit that converted many racers original B2's in to a new B3.


The RC10B2 Team (kit # 9000)

This "Racer" Team kit came with teflon shocks, stainless ball bearings in the early kit and teflon shield bearings in the late, XTR Edge front tires, XTR Flat Stubbies, dished yellow one piece wheels. All B2's came with the new fine thread turnbuckles. Early B2's could be found with or a combination of white servo arms, white steering bell cranks (very rare) and white wing buttons. The late B2's were all black. There were also three different servo mounts and two types of rear arms.

DSCN0469_zpss21ac6kn.jpg
The RC10B2 Basic (kit # 9001)

The basic kit was late production and came with gold shocks and bushings. No motor or MSC was included.

The RC10B2 Sport (kit # 9011) Late 1996 and still in production during the B3

This sport kit came with gold top feed shocks, bushings, dog bones, stand up type mechanical speed control (MSC), special body with bulge on left side to accommodate MSC, sport stock reedy motor, three piece wheels, (6874) XTM Flat Four Rib front tires and (6823) XTM Step Pin rear tires. Can also be found with Edge front and Stubbies rear tires.

Standup MSC with original Team Orion silicone wire. The black plastic insulator came with this kit, but the manual shows and older yellow one that is common on the CE.
DSCN1758_zpsayarkrkx.jpg
Shock caps used on the Sport B2 are plastic. Early on the left and possible very late (during the B3 production) on the right. It is also possible that the Sport used black aluminium caps as well.
DSCN1748_zpstdkq8cgt.jpg
B2 Sport body on top of B2 body. Notice the difference in the side scoop.
DSCN1770_zps6fbzy5nq.jpg
Servo mount on the right is found in white on the early B2 and black (shown) used on B2 and early B2 Sport. The left servo mount with the indents was used in the late Sport B2 only. This was during the B3 production run, it was also used on the B3 and B4.
DSCN1749_zpsaoqqs7af.jpg
Identifying a B2 over the B3.

Many experienced collectors have a difficult time identifying a true B2. The reason for this was the B3 and B2 are very similar. Also with the release of a B3 conversion kit, (I will show this kit in the B3 section) many cars that are out there with the conversion kit are 1/2 B2 and 1/2 B3.

Bodies from left to right B2, B2 Sport and painted B3
DSCN1768_zpslbohnuek.jpg
Clear B2 body on top of painted B3. Notice the wider B2 that looks like an RCPS design.
DSCN1769_zpsrqwamj3x.jpg
Chassis, B3 shown on top, has holes for a sway bar mount just above ball stud holes. B2 chassis shown on bottom have no extra holes. Both types of chassis can be found in short, medium and long lengths. Medium is standard for both cars. All the early B2 chassis did not have the MSC holes drilled on the right side as pointed out by (Orange) Sean Sanchez.

Stealth Slipper B3 left and smaller B2 on the right (B2 is the same as Team and Worlds car)
DSCN1817_zpsc5x57qmf.jpg
Rear Suspension Mounts Often overlooked. The Late B2 (R3 shown on the bottom) has the R3 and L3 marking and uses 4-40 screws. The B3 (shown top) has the R3+3 and L3+3 marking, and uses 5-40 screws.
DSCN1740_zps6j80xntg.jpg
Front Bulkhead B2 left with no third hole to mount shock tower. B3 with third hole on the right. Again very often over looked.
