Ten4?

Post by FC5687 »

Hello!
Any difference between MIP RC10 4x4and Ten4?

Is Ten4 still available?

What is the rear transmission on the Ten4? The AE stock 6 gears transmission?

Thanks 🙏

Ten4 was our take on a modernish version of the mip 410. They shared nothing but the idea of making an rc10 4wd.

Can you list what parts are discontinued? If you have the drawings and requirements of those parts, I might source them from China through custom make.

BTW, I know a place here in Hong Kong that is able to deliver custom gear in Delrin.

Does the Ten4 have a different rear gearbox than the stock RC10??

I have talked to a local shop and they can supply custom-made gear with Delrin or 6061 aluminum.

Regarding the belt, they can supply in different sizes from various suppliers eg 3M

Does anyone know about this rerelease?

Same 6 gears transmission? Still, has the nylon-type gearbox?

Thanks!

Wow if you could combine this with the RC10 rerelease you could make a lot of money. 🙄

It'd be worth it to prototype first. Most of the appeal of these items seems to be strictly from how rare they are. That seems to be because they sold poorly due to low interest or high prices. Have some prototypes CNC'd and see how long it takes to sell them at a price that would make you profit.

If the rumors of a rc10t/rc10WC issue are anything more than smoke then kits like this would pick up some traction after people have them for a while and want to do a bit more.

as one of the two people that designed the Ten4, I wish you good luck at making tens of dollars off this project LOL. Everyone wants it until they are for sale, then crickets until you discontinue it, in which case people act like they want them again.

Sounds like lots of parts isn't available, right?

By looking into required parts for this project. I guess only the 4WD transmission isn't available except front gearbox section, such as pulley and belt related parts.

As says if I can have those parts I can duplicate for some backup for future use

The parts are all identified, all you have to do is go find people that are selling them. eBay is probably your best source. Then once you find yhem and buy them you will have them.

Most parts are available but the most critical parts from Robinson Racing have a hard time sourcing. Most likely it might not be available. If I have the "used piece" on hand, I can ask the local shop to custom-made. 7075 and exotic plastic can be accessed based on what the local shop said.
