SHOWME RC10

Post by sbednara » Mon Jun 11, 2018 7:20 pm

Longtime member, first time poster.

So I got my first and only rc car way back in the early 90’s. It was/is an rc10 championship edition, ‘B’ stamp car. Ran great then but really just wasn’t into working on the car. So it sat in a Rubbermaid tub for years.

Well about 6 years ago I got it back out, joined the forum here but didn’t really do much other than that.

A couple years later I did the same except I did get the car going again, installed a new esc (tekin rebel) & swapped out the original motor for a fantom, not exactly sure what specs are on it. I also upgraded the transmitter & receiver to a Futaba 3PRKA and a R203GF. Then I put it all away for a couple years.

Well now it’s back out. My brother in-law wants to bash now, my son wants to drive mine, trying to get the inlaws to build a track in their back yard. So I decided to get back on here.
So here I am.

Anyway I’ve got some ideas about upgrading this car. I plan to call associated for some help. I plan to lean on the experience here. But make no mistake I want to fix up & run this car. Dirt, carpet, wherever. Not gunna be a shelf queen.

Any thoughts? Or insights on what I should do first? Or links to threads I should check out/read up on?

I’ll post up some pics of my rig later.

Almost forgot, I’m from the ‘SHOWME’ state, Missouri. Any other MO guys on here?

One of my racer friends from bitd was a Fantom driver and he kept me supplied with motors. I still have a dozen or so of them 11t through 15t, singles, doubles, triples. Some of them feature fully machined cans that I thought were way to pretty to run so they remain in their containers. Kinda like Christmas ornaments.

Small world. My mom is from a small town just south of Springfield IL. I now live just outside Springfield MO and we’re at Branson every few months it seems.

How can I tell how many turns this fantom motor has? Doesn’t appear to have any indication on it what it is.
Also any idea what the stock motor was that came on the rc10 champion edition? I think I still have that one too. I guess I’d like to know what the motor is I’m running before I make any changes to the setup.

Also any thoughts on buying used brushed motors or esc? Swap meet at the local hobby shop this coming Saturday. I’d like to pick up some components to get an older kyosho raider pro arr back up and running. I need just about all electronics including a transmitter.

Not sure, your Fantom is probably newer than mine. Mine have engraver markings on the armature and some have the marks on the can as well. Your motor appears to have bent tabs holding the end bell (cannot be dismantled) so I bet it's a stock 27 turn.

The official RC10 CE manual indicates the car came with an Associated Off-Road Stock motor #6500.

Here's pics of my reedy which i believe came stock with the RC10 ce. it doesnt say '6500' on it. would that be a part # or some type of spec? how would this compare to the fantom? i thought the fantom is/was suppose to be an upgrade but i really dont know. what do you think?

on the bottom, across from where it says yokomo japan, it says ROAR STOCK. im guessing that would mean this is a 27t as well....? idk

Yes, Roar Stock = 27 turn. AE didn't stamp part numbers on their motors. I would say that your green label motor is what came with the CE. Earlier 6500 motors had a blue label but, apart from some upgrades to the brush holders, I reckon they are basically the same.

They are also a very mild motor - they were entry-level "race" motors 30 years ago, by today's standard they pure entry-level.

If this motor is in pristine shape, I'll use this as a nice shelf adornment :wink:

Thanks for the replies guys. Yes this motor is in good shape. I didn’t really run the car much even when I got it back in 90. Prob will retire this & upgrade.
