Will the RC10GT diff rebuild kit work on RC10?

Post by Showcase1186 »

I was on tower and noticed they have a rebuild kit for the RC10GT, but not for the standard RC10. It seems you have to buy the parts separately. Will the GT kit work on the standard RC10?

GT is 2.60:1, RC10 is 2.25:1, so the gt diff rings are too big.

Tc3 should fit iirc....wait for confirmation tho! Not sure if there's a kit still.

just bought the tc3 kit.

i'll confirm in a few days when it arrives.

on a side note, towerhobbies is out of stock on the tc3 kit. Amainhobbies has it at almost half the price of towerhobbies.

im also trying the b4 topshaft with vts slipper conversion. want to try the avid rc triad conversion too. need to find a b4.1 topshaft and compare it to the b4 topshaft.

EDIT: after looking at the pictures on associated and other sites, they look the same and have the same part number. The only thing in question will be the spacing from the transmission. If I acquire a 3rd stealth tranny, ill buy a triad slipper for it and try that out.

TC3 kit works perfectly. I've used it several times already. I'll be interested to hear about the VTS slipper conversion but since it works with a B4 topshaft, I'm sure it will not be problem fitting it on. I'm more interested in the performance aspect and also wondering about the AVID triad setup.
