New to the forum
OG RC 10T signing in for the first post. Years back (1992) I bought a new RC10T, Hence the screen name, and was in to RC for a while. 15 years later a buddy of mine talked me in to taking my 100% orgional (electronics, motor and battery) 10T to the local track.
After having a great time and feeling like a dummy getting walked on by 8 year olds, I realized my prized 10T was a slow big fat dinosaur. I didnt want to use it again because I was afraid that I would break something and wouldnt be able to find the parts to fix it.
So I bought a new T4 team kit and a 19t motor. Its great and I like it but its not the 10T that I like so much.
Well was on the internet and I went a little overboard. 3 Days and Just over $450 later I bought every single aftermarket part possible, from tower, associated, RPM, Lundsford, locally and a couple of other vendors out there for the 10T and didnt cheap out on anythign.
I bought all new electronics, speed controler and servos, motor, A arms, bulk heads, turn bukles, ball studs, screws, body mounts, rims, tires, nuts and bolts rebuilt the shocks and the list goes on and on. I also found a new orgional new body. Score!!!!!
This weekend I will start pain stakingly (sp) rebuilding it from the ground up. The only, and I mean ONLY, orgional parts left on the truck is the frame, nose braces, shock bodies, and shock towers. I even put the RPM stealth regeared tranny, and CVD's on it. Not to mention every bearing that could be replaced was. I also bought a Modded 10 turn, 4 magnet motor, just for fun.
If I would have known that I could build this truck from scratch I would have never have bought the T4. I kind of regret buying it now, but I think the T4 will be my beater and track car and the 10T will be my vintage racer.
Thats the plan any ways, though it may change if the T4 is better for race days. We will see. I am just getting back into the sport and my knowledge for this stuff ended in 1994. UGH
I also bought a Revo 3.3 because I always wanted a nitro truck. That thing is wicked fast and fun. If I could only put it down to build the 10T things would be easier.
I will post pics when its finished. If anyone has any vintage 10T's post up I would like to hear about them.
