Sorry guys for my long silence.
Was out of order for nearly two weeks due to illness and the last days were full with work, so no head for this project.
More news during this weekend.

Greetings
Raimund

Dear litteVETTE,

thank you very much for the scan. I`ve expected that Mark placed decals symetric to the other side which is now confirmed. Another point done :)
I`m still waiting for some parts, esp. the chassis. I´ve bought a rere World`s chassis which will be the base for this build.
Also welcom Showcase1186 to this thread. It`s very nice to see so many people interested into this build. Did you also drill the front and rear tower at your clone? Maybe you can give also some technical input to this build.
In the meantime I`ve found a NIB Novak receiver with correct specifications.
Also one more missing decal is fixed. WC1982 posted a scan from a vintage 1994 HPI catalogue with exact the template I need. To get the correct color I only had to invert the color using photoshop and voila.
Now two of the harder to get decals are fixed. Many thanks again to Brad for his help with the TUF racing decal!
I`ve seen that Vale is the lucky winner at the race after RCPS titanium turnbuckles and a Sanyo/Reedy SCRC Ultra Pack. Maybe the last one on earth :twisted: Congratulations!

More news, photos soon. It comes together slower than expected but I´m expecting a fast build when all parts arrived.

Nice find on the 3FM. I've been looking for one for some time now. Any more updates I've been checking in regularly anxious to see this build.

I'm sorry to bring bad news, but all the US team drivers used the 27mhz NER3FM. :|

i took these pictures quickly, but i hope they could help you out. if you see something and you want a better picture, let me know. i could scan it for you. you could also download the pdf for the magazine.

these pictures are from the june 1994 of rc car action. he has the truck fully naked and detailed.

Haven't tuned in for almost 10 months, so I was hoping to see the finished product. RATS! Guess I'll check in in another few months.

So Mark Pavidis in 1994 was using GT steering bellcranks in his RC10T.

This is good information for the guys that are building a good runner or racing a 10T and want it to

steer properly.

Man I was hoping to see progress on this build. I'll check in another couple months. If nothing happens I may hijack this one :lol:
I always loved that truck and paint scheme!

I would think that Pavidis was doing some parts testing for Lett's CAD-developed T2 project, hence the thicker rear tower and GT steering bellcranks. If this was happening in '94, it would lead up to the release of the T2 in '95. I was just looking at the rear shock tower on my T2, and it's pretty thick.
