Due to popular demand, I continued working on this bad boy and did the following:
- installing an early Novak ESC, Airtronics receiver and random Futaba FPS-128 servo which will do until I find the proper Airtronics one.
- worked on the front suspension with a Dremel as the reversed shocks were interfering with front arms
- added two GOODYEAR tires I had found in the meantime
- fabbed a spacer for the front body mount

Things that still need to be fixed:
- gold anodize shock collars
- rewire plugs on ESC and find proper Airtronics servo
- make an antenna mount
- build a 1200 Sanyo battery
- dye bottom shock mounts red
- shorten front nose tubes

Killer to see this. Came out absolutely perfect! I love Funco/Rough Rider bodies on rc10s. Always will.
