RC10 Team Car Revival - Updated w electronics, short video

Post by frgna »

Edit - I think there were too many pics so I cut it down a lot! Also started a separate post for electronics/videos.

This is my Team Car that I had as a 13 year old (I’m 28 now). I bought it new from a LHS near Minneapolis. I only ran it a few dozen times. Black plastic parts are original which I think is strange for a team car. The only upgrades I’ve put in are the RPM bearing steering kit and the graphite tranny brace (I installed these as a kid). I had also put graphite towers on but have since gone back to the originals. I think the RPM steering looks great with the fibreglass towers. The rest of the parts are original or direct/near direct replacements. I had Lunsford tie rods, but I replaced these with the OG black Associated rods.

Goal is to get this to be a soft runner (carpet) with old school electronics – all the ones I wished I could have bought as a kid but lawnmowing and caddying didn’t cut it!

On to the show!

Amazing what a difference the new style tires and black wheels makes in the appearance!

Very cool man, looking good, I'm collecting parts for a build like that myself, Do you remember if that was the original graphite tranny brace, or did you add it on, also, would you remember if the original servo saver was black, or white.

Thanks Marlo - the graphite was an upgrade, original was black

I don't specifically remember the servo saver, sorry - it was one of the first things to go

So the answer to my question "Is there such a thing as too many pictures" is.... :)

Might have been a little overexuberant on this one, haha - I've caught that RC10 bug bad!!!

Agreed on the all black - the Dirt Hawg tires are just mean too. They're going on my desert runner car.

Does anyone have a good recommendation for a NiMH battery pack that will fit the RC10 without mods? I tried my 2000 MaH cells and they're too big...need an older school pack to be true to the car.

Electronics time – it’s a runner after all (though a gentle runner – carpet only)

Futaba S9001 Coreless

The ESC I always wanted as a kid! Also I can’t believe how small these 2.4 ghz receivers are nowadays…

Electronics finished - popped in a Savox 1257TG because it drives just soooo much better with it than the old Futaba S9001.

Also put in a Trinity Monster Horsepower because it's awesome and looks cool.

Amateur hour on the soldering.

It was weird, I never had anything better than an S148 as a kid, so when I drove this for the first time, it felt like it was reading my mind...
