RC10LS Build

Post by Niki »

Hi,
Inspired by Jake's 1/12 builds I finally started my RC10LS.
Still have to hunt down some parts.
Body is Protoform 1402R - Nissan P-35 GTP.

Thanks JL and rooster for help.
I just had to mount the ASC4354 right bulkhead instead of ASC4347. Just because it looks so good.

very nice niki. i just finished up building an ss for a friend with the same body.

if you're going to have the rear chassis brace installed that finned bulkhead is going to give you trouble. unless you modify the brace around the bulkhead.

looking good niki. what are your plans for the front end suspension, and rear alxe setup?

i thought you were going to mod the rear chassis brace, rather than the bulkhead. lol

Didn't you notice similar wheels on Ebay some time ago?
Be awake to get your own set :lol:
I have heard new batch will be produced in near future...

Thanks. This car is for display use only. I'm still going to cut a clear body on top of it.

Hmm, maybe I've never payed enough attention but the other 10L's have the tube style brace. Changed between LS and LC?
