RPM 7077 "91 WORLDS" RC10 Team Car Front End Kit

Post by sandkil »

A little side project.
I’ve had this in a drawer for a while and decided to get it cleaned.
It’s quite impressive what a thorough clean can result in.
Boiling water.
Simple green.
Toothbrush and pipe cleaners.
Brass brush on the Dremel and Birschwood Casey Super Blue for the hardware.
No hydro peroxide treatment needed.
(The springs are not RPM)
I had to test fit it to the team car.

Well you don’t see that everyday, Schumacher shocks on a rc10- normally the other way round lol

Vey jealous of both of those buggies👍🏼

Thanks !
You're absolutely right, these are Schumacher shocks.
I remember installing this rpm kit back then and the original rc10 shocks wouldn't fit.
I didn't know much but I found those shocks on a cougar and they fitted properly.
I should find proper associated vintage shocks now so it can somehow start to look like sandkill's super clean car.

You kept the parts white and didn't drill the chassis full of holes. It'll look great once it's cleaned.

Thank you.
I do remember this trend back then to drill the chassis for gaining weight, I guess.

Final piece added.
The correct RPM springs.
If you need a pair, just send an email to RPM. They still have a stash.
