RC10 Sprint Car Update

Post by tony13b »

Hay Guys any suggestion on a paint job, I can't think of anything... :? ...?

Updates in last page and thank you for all your help guys I hope you guys like it, I am very happy with the way it came out I could not find decals with the right number 1 for Sammy Swindell Sprint Car but this will have to do..

I was wondering do you guys think I should put more aftermarket parts decals on it? Please let me know as I am looking on ebay for the right ones..


I changed the wheels on it also, I like the BBS style more on the sprint car then the directional 8 spoke....

blue and white with valvoline decals as in the original RCCA sprint car shootout. The car is already dyed blue just like in the mag. Pic below shamelessly re-linked from: http://www.rc10talk.com/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=5129

Could you show us how the Tecnacraft wheels cleaned up. I'm assuming those were the first set that sold on eBay a couple of weeks ago.

They look exactly like the set that just went of a couple of weels ago but they look like a set of Tecnacraft wheels should look like (little jewels). Sorry I haven't seen many of that thick rear wheel variety and I just thought it might be. They are great looking.

WIth those gold wheels, I'd do a Sammy Swindell black and gold TMC replica. That was the best looking sprint car ever imho.

Haha, that would be the trick. You'd have to come up with something yourself I think, I've never seen TMC decals.

An old school sprint car deserves an old school paint job. Kenny rodgers has a nice one for the time. Looks better up close than in person.
You run me in the grass imma run you in the wall, drive like a racer not a flippin idiot
