Hot Trick Stuff 'Tuber' w/ Associated parts?

Post by Jeep-Power »

Hey Folks-- really glad I found RC10Talk!


I've had this car for a while-- it was given to me in pieces...

I'd always thought it was composed of 10L parts, but a scan through some of the posts here make me think it has 12L front end parts?

Please let me know what you see and know if it!

It is a fast little bugger and hard as hell to keep in a straight line, as the suspension is virtually non existent. It has certainly taught me to be a much better driver... ;)

Welcome to the board.

Cool sprint. From what I can see it is a Hot Trick sprint with a modified front end. I think the original had a flat plate that went across the front and sat on rubber o-rings.

huh. Interesting-

The rear has something similar to what you describe-- the motor/axle mount attaches to the chassis with 4 silicone grommets. It's this that allows for what little 'suspension' the frame has... :wink:

The front is what came with the single sheet, hand written, instructions. I've always been terrified of breaking the front wheel brackets-- never thought I'd be able to get replacements-- hence the Blackfoot bumper. :)

The kit did include angled shims that give alitte caster to the steering-- the can be seen between the frame plate & brackets.

I had one of these and it was exactly as yours. Same style suspension parts, etc. I think the front suspension is 10L/12L which can still be found, mostly in black though. Yours sure is in a lot nicer condition than mine was. I think they're on the rare side as I've only seen a few over the last many years.

Thanks--

Yeah, they seem pretty rare-- I had never even heard of this kit before (not that I'm any sort of authority)-- I literally got it in a pile of parts (these and others) and was amazed that this was the end result.

So the 10L & 12L share the same front end parts? It's confusing, because I've seen quite a few different front ends on the Associated pan cars-- both 10th & 12th scale. I guess what makes it even more confusing is that there were (are?) so many aftermarket 'hop-up' kits for these cars.

I have a 10L with some wacky front suspension on it... :roll: (pics to come...)

Very nice! A member on here recently had one of those direct drive rear pods for sale on ebay. I tried to win it, but was outbid. The seller didn't know the brand, but it sure seems like something Hot Trick would have made.

Here are the pics I saved from the auction:

Peter,
I was mistaken in my first post. I found this ad in an old RCCA that shows the sprint with the same front end as yours. In the same magazine (sept 88) they have a dirt oval buyers guide which shows the Hot Trick rc10 conversion which uses a similar chassis and side plates but uses the HT wide front end and rc10 suspension.

railey-- nice find!!! :P

That photo explains where they meant for those red brackets to go!

Hmmm... I'm sure a wing will make this thing behave differently-- possibly keep it on the ground a little better... :shock:
