RC10 DS unboxing in 2022 (Japan kit)

Post by TokyoProf »

This is an unboxing of the RC10 DS kit from Japan. This is the racer spec kit with teflon-coated shocks and full bearings. I think most Associated kits sold in Japan were all racing spec since parts and hop-ups were harder to come by. Mine didn't come with a body...is this normal or just missing? This is an interesting kit, and would definitely be easier to run on rougher parking lot tracks! Box is in good condition as are the vintage brochures.

The marketing for the conversion kit was clear:
"Many racers have older RC10's or RC10T's that are used less often because they have switched over to our RC10B2..."
Smart idea to keep thousands of the old stuff versatile, running and relevant.

Yes, it's normal. Associated made variations of the kit. There were 4 associated bodies that were offered with the DS but the racer kit(the smallest of the boxes) lacked a body. They also offered kits with no engine and some with an engine.

Be aware that since the kit is old the tires will not be fresh. They may have the beginnings of dry rot and may not hold a round shape.

That happened to me on my nitro DS kyosho Chevy build.

Will keep watching your progress :D
