Some new projects

Post by jjacobsn »

I don't post much, but lurk a good deal. My second R/C ever was an RC10(1st was a Hornet) and I've recently got back into them after re-invigorating my interest in R/C at Clodtalk. Here are two of my latest projects that are starting to come together.

The first one I've been working on. No idea on what kind of chassis it is. Basically it is some Rc10T arms (I think) with an oval graphite chassis. I cleaned it up, threw on some tires, added a few pieces and topped it with a Dirt Oval Body. Also put in a Novak brushless and it flies.. almost scary.


The second is based on one of the World's cars (based on the shock towers?) added some RPM arms. I know the chassis doesn't match as I added a cleaner black tub to replace the older beat up one. Topped it off with one of my first attempts at painting a body (other than the old single can of spray paint rush jobs from years ago).

There are definitely more pics to come of these and more. I still have my first one, it is beat up, but I just don't have the heart to break it up and use the parts, etc. in other builds. IT actually still runs pretty well.

It isn't slotted. That is what is throwing me because the chassis is biased to the left side, so I think it must be for dirt oval. It just doesn't look familiar, but between 1994 and 2004, I don't know much of what went on in the R/Cworld. I do like it though with the extended truck arms (that was what the original owner did), because it is quite stable at high speed. It really moves with the brushless.

Just saw your comment Hoopty, the six gear is holding up to the brushless, but I do not run it hard and don't have a hammer finger. I make sure the tranny is well maintained, but I think it will wear on the diff eventually.
