RC10 build NOT using any RC10 parts...........

Post by CON2 »

Right where to start, can't load pics at the moment, don't know why, it just keeps asking me to log back in...

So here we go, I have a TQ Graphite chassis, brand new sat on my table.
Last week I bought a load of NIP Andy's parts, so good start there!
Not sure what to do gearbox wise, I have a spare MIP box, in good nick, not new but as good as I can find.
Hinges and turnbuckles, Titanium bits I have few new bits in packets.
Shocks, not sure what to use, may pop on a set of B4's for now, till I or you lot can think of any ideas.
Steering, got an alloy ball raced set ready to go.
Think that's the major bits for now!!

When I figure out why I can't load pics, I WILL photo it ALL and make every effort to finish a build on here!!!

MIP shocks would be a good option.

Did you check the size of your pics?

I think they have to be under 256kb to upload so you need to resize!

crp made front axles for the rc10 in stock/metric/truck styles. another option could be using losi xxx-cr front end parts so you can also run the xxx-cr star wheels.

Tecnacraft front axles.

MIP or Hammad Ghuman VLT clear shock bodies and caps if you can find them.

Maybe an RPM tranny brace? Or the A&L brace used with the Lethal Weapon tranny.

Robinson Racing steering control system and rear adjustable arm mounts?

I like this build and can't wait for some pics. :D

i don't know. i don't think i would call a tq10 chassis an aftermarket rc10 chassis. it was a kit produced by associated and sold through horizon.

what your gonna end up with is a decked out tq10, not an all aftermarket rc10.

just my 2 cents.....

Maybe a fibrelyte graphite chassis would be the way to go for truly aftermarket?

I agree. I have the fibrelyte tub chassis and think its definitely a better 'non RC10' option than the TQ chassis. And it is über cool in the flesh! 8) :lol:
Do, or do not! There is no 'try'!
RC; Boats, Buggies, Trucks, Bash's, Racing and of course 'VINTAGE'!
