Hello from California!

Post by cobrakai » Mon Apr 16, 2018 5:08 am

Hi everyone!

I have an old RC10GT that I've been working on converting to electric. I bought it new in 2002 or so. Nitro just became too much of a hassle/annoyance for me, and with today's brushless systems it seemed like a no-brainer. It's a work in progress.

I made all of the bare aluminum parts. There are some things I would like to change, so I'm hoping for rev 2 shortly. I wanted to show my work here where there is a relevant crowd and also get any input on the project!

Hello and welcome, what part of California?

Your GT looks good, what body do you run on it?

Thanks!

I'm in the Bay Area. I still have the original body on it... like this: http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/attachm ... 1375550629

It's really falling apart though. The plastic around the rear mounting holes is completely missing, and I kinda bastardized it when I was younger by cutting huge holes in it for the nitro engine. Any idea where to get an affordable replacement? I think one of those with the little rear wing would be cool. I'm just not sure which ones will fit. Are other RC10's compatible (eg. T4)?

I hope to share some good stuff and learn some new things here.
