Nice forum you guys have here. So many threads. I've been lurking for years but finally got my own rc10 ce handed to me from a friend. Needs put back together but looks all there.

I'll be looking around figure something to do with this. Seems like it was never run? Tires are in mint condition. Everything else needs gone over. The trans needs attention.

With my current phone, I'm able to resize the image by making a screenshot of it. The screenshots are always within the forum limits.

No busted screen, but still rocking an S7, my second smartphone. I use them until they actually need to be replaced. This one is getting close, honestly a bit past due because the battery has been complete shat for months.

Nah, just a good provider. Probably helps that my account dates back to the late 90's.

They still let me get new phones every couple years, either free or cheap. The contract doesn't bother me as I have no intention of changing (by far, the best coverage here).

I got this phone shortly after they were released, for $250. My wife and son's IPhones were free.

Welcome! I fixed the broken link for you. It looks like you got yourself a really nice example! :)

Thanks for fixing the link. I'll figure it out after a couple times. The CE seems in good shape. I'm not really a collector type so I'd like to get it in running condition. Couple guys at my local track are stirring up a vintage class. We had 4 on last race at Trains and Lane's in Easton PA. All I could come up with was a rere Tamiya NovaFox so the rc10 should be a better runner. It was more of a parade than a race lol.

It looks like an excellent survivor. If racing it, you maybe should consider rehydration of the nylon parts to make sure they aren't brittle from age.

That's a really nice early CE survivor... you may consider piecing together another one and and save those really nice white arms etc and the chassis and nose plate.. you can easily find black arms and a not so pretty chassis to use for vintage racing... Just my 2cents..either way very cool, enjoy!

After some consideration I think this will become a mantle piece. So I went and bought myself this today:

So I'll save this minty rc10 from my usual tinkering. It's hard to let it just sit there without any laps on it. I'm going to put it all together and see how I feel when it's all ready.
