Hey all. I thought it would be cool to have a thread for pre-B2 RC10s. Ill start:
So I decided to go through my closet and dig out the old RC stuff that I had from when I was a kid. I have 2 kits, both circa ’87 or ’88. One is a Clodbuster, which I love, and the other is a first edition RC10. Both are in pretty good condition considering that they were bashed by a kid for several years. The RC10, actually, is looking pretty good. So, I decided to rebuild it first. Granted, its not shelf-queen condition. It has several scratches in the pan and has seen its fair share of hits. So, I think Im going to make it into a vintage racer. Ive managed to source most of the parts I need, but Im looking for a couple more and was hoping some folks might be able to help. First, is the question regarding wheels and tires. I was looking at the Associated website and it looks like wheels that fit the B4 should also fit the old RC10. Is this correct? On the other hand, I DO still have the original 3 piece wheels. They are not in pristine condition, so I wouldn’t worry about using them. Are there tires out there that will fit these? Also, I have seen that Vans Invent makes replacement bodies for the RC10, but they do not have the original style. Does anyone have a source where I can get an original style body? If they are too rare/no one makes one, Im not going to worry about it. Just thought it would be cool to have the old school body and wheels on this thing.
Oh, one last thing, does anyone remember how to set one of these cars up? Thanks!
