RC10 Parts Help

Post by jsnow222 »

I have a Cadillac RC10 stamped A, I used to race it as a kid and am trying to get it going again. I have a couple broken parts in the steering, mainly the bellcrank, that I am having trouble finding replacements. I also would like to look at upgrading a few things, namely the transmission. I have been doing a lot of looking around, and reading on here. I am having trouble finding in stock parts, or not able to determine what will work with this car. If anyone could point me in the right direction, or give me an idea of what parts I can make work it would be great. I feel like a complete newbie considering I haven't touched this car in 25 years or so. I am trying to get the RC10, as well as a couple other cars going again to run with my kids. I had a blast racing this thing with my dad, and would like to pass some of these memories down to my own kids.

There's guys here that, well, pretty much know everything about the RC10. My advice is to go to https://www.teamassociated.com/cars_and_trucks/discontinued/ and download the manual/parts list for your buggy.

From there, make a list of what you need and post it here for help locating parts, or compatible parts. If your after new in bag original parts, eBay may be a place to find them.

Hi jsnow222 and welcome aboard! :D

Nomad's right; if it's RC10 advice you seek, you've come to the right place.

Your Cadillac probably still uses the original RC10's steering assembly. Fortunately, many of the parts for the vintage cars have been re-released and are available again directly from Team Associated:
https://www.teamassociated.com/parts/details/6255-ASC6255-rc10_steering_assembly/

An upgrade for your car would be the RC10 "Worlds" steering assembly:
https://www.teamassociated.com/parts/details/6254-ASC6254-bellcranks/

Both of these assemblies will fit your vintage car and they are currently in stock.

Ebay is a great secondary source for RC parts. Most parts that aren't otherwise available from online or retail outlets (including steering parts) can be found on ebay. The instruction manual for the re-released RC10 is still available for free download at Team Associated's site. The original (vintage) instruction manual is also available for download here.

Awesome, thanks! I had actually found the newer bellcrank, but wasn't sure if it would work. Any Ideas if there is anywhere to get the stealth transmission anymore? Or is there a better option? I'm running brushless, and figure the old tranny won't hold up forever. I'm sure it would be easier to buy a newer car, but I just love this old RC10.

The stealth trans is mostly available, but the outdrives are hard to find. There are some option around and they occasionally come back in stock at associated. You may have better luck finding a used car or tans as an assembly and using it for spares.

There ya go. Best advice for anyone who has one of these old gems and has plans to run it. Someone will post an old derelict on ebay nearly every day and sometimes with a BIN that's a fraction of the sum total of the parts.
