hmmm, maybe a Graphite Worlds Chassis?

A member here used to mill out the tranny cases, so some are out there.

Rarest hop up part overall? MIP trailing arm conversion

Tecnacraft titanium rear stub axles (gold color) for the RC10 are pretty damn rare. Luckily I had a source to find a pair for my gold shelfer project.

I don't know the stock parts as well on the very early cars, but the fiberglass battery holder seems to be one that many cite as incredibly rare.

Nah, I think scr8p alone has three or four of those. :mrgreen:

Box stock - Fiberglass battery strap based on what I've read on this site.

Hop-up - Miracle Speedway quick-adjust lowering kit (I think that's what it's called) or an Advanced Racing Products mid-motor conversion.

The Bullet Racing version would be even rarer...along with just about everything else Bullet made.

Honestly though there are some pretty obscure hop-ups that I don't expect to ever see. For example, I've seen ads in old RCCA issues for a rocker arm kit made by Slam Dunk (I think?) that criss-crossed the RC10's front shocks across the nose.

I think an unbuilt RC10 CE with white parts dyed green is uber rare. That must be the ultimate.
