RC10 Truck ProLine Conversion with Tamiya Bronco Body

Post by vintage AE »

Since I never had a truck conversion til now (thanks Rod for the many truck conversions) I thought I would put one on my only gold pan temporarily. Rod if you come across any cheap RC10s I can put one you these conversion kits on let me know, I need 2 maybe 3 :lol: but one will do for now.

here's how it went down

That's sweet. I loved the truck conversions, actually USING the fenders on the body. There needs to be a conversion class, with a limit on the spread between the outer hinge pins on the suspension arms, narrower overall width, wider bodies, etc.

I'm going to do the same with a 1970 F100 body. I want mine to sit lower though. Might have to use shorter rear shocks and make a new shock tower. Nice body.

looks real nice........ im a big fan of stuff like this(i wanted to do a oldschool parma 80s-90s bronco body).. my truck conversion has different mounts...(i remember 3 different mount setups).. before the rc10t people would be racing blackfoots, lunchboxes,exc...people would buy this conversion and rule the truck class

I would have worked on the mounts more, but I didn't want to but any hole in the body if it was going to be a mock up. I also use the body on my Losi Comp Crawler

I'll probably try and find vintage bodies (and buggies too)for all the 4 different brands of kits...you all know what that means $$$$

I swear it's worse than an addiction. Drinking beer every night got to be cheaper by far :lol: Especially done in the states, it's over #20 for 12 beer here :cry:

Try the Parma Bronco, Blackfoot reproduction, or Chevy stepside. The Pro-Line bodies for the Stampede should work pretty well too.

Cool stuff Anthony, I'm happy you could put the conversions to use! I had a Proline one (Chev body?) back in the day on a gold pan and then the 10t came out! I can't remember what I did with it after, I think it went back to a buggy! The conversion never really appealed to me after the 10t, but they still look cool when the body is nice, like yours!

Have fun with them! :wink:
