Ten4: the 4WD RC10 project

Post by mk-Zero »

EDIT: See thread here for complete listing of Ten4 parts and where to buy them



Thought I would start a new thread on this, outside my "Tuning Options" thread, since it's going to be a pretty big project.
Jeff (GoMachV) and I are taking this on together. Jeff will be doing a lot of the mockup work, working out details of mounting components on the front end etc, and I'll be doing design and CAD modeling. The basic plan is an MIP style setup with a 2-gear trans up front that will use a Stealth diff and a modified Stealth idler as an input, and then the rear Stealth will have a modified idler as an output shaft. We'll probably make a new rear bulkhead that will have an integrated mount in it for the belt tensioner/guide, and another tensioner or guide for the front. Up front it will use caster blocks based off b44 blocks that will correct the width and caster, and then B44 steering blocks and CVAs. And of course long RC10 front arms.
So for now, I have designed and received the first itteration of the 2-gear stealth box, looks good. Jeff sent me some gears to try in it, so hopefully this weekend I'll know if everything fits properly. If so, the trans case and gears will go back to Jeff for him to figure out how to mount/position it.

I have also designed the modified b44 caster blocks. I'll order these from Shapeways soon.

And yes, when we get this all worked out we will make everything avalable so you can build your own :mrgreen:

Excellent! Very exciting project! I saw this on your FB page, and although I'm mostly into vintage 1:8 scale Associated and Delta cars, I will definitely order this set once it becomes available...so put me on the list!
I have a ton of RC10 parts, so building a 4wd with this should be fairly easy!
