Strange graphite chassis

Post by TomiS »

I was offered this chassis when I was looking for RC10 Graphite car. I have no idea what this is, but looks like rear end takes stealth transmission and front is completely different, much narrower. Does anyone know what it might be?

OK, thanks! That was quick. How hard are those parts to find? So basically, is there really a point taking such a project?

they bring good money for sure. If you just want used/dyed/etc they arent bad but decent condition white parts are quite spendy.

There is also the option of using Dynotech Klein arms...which are machined "reproductions" of the RPM arms. You can then use an RC10T/GT front bulkhead but would still be stuck trying to find a pair of RPM rear arm mounts. There's no alternative to those.

Strangely enough, the rear arm mounts show up more than any other world's parts.

I think there might be some on shapeways too... .not sure.
