Default Please Help Identify This Car

I found a deal on a local classified site that i just couldn't pass up. I'll post more info in a bit as i get more pictures. For now, i just need help with a positive ID on this 2WD Stadium truck the seller thought to be a Team Associated GT2. After a closer inspection, one of the members of my local track said he thought the pictures looked like the RC10 GT, not the GT 2. I am just getting back into cars after a 10 year hiatus, so i am clueless as to the make and model...

Yep, that's my guess as well.

Ok great thanks for your help!

As far as i know, the only thing wrong with the car is that the transmission has a couple of gears that are stripped out and i'm trying to determine what would be required to get it back up and running. Which of the manuals on this page whould i bee looking at?

http://www.teamassociated.com/manuals/RC10GT/

I got the car, the engine that is currently installed, which appears to be an OS Max-12CV-R, and the Stock Team Associated Motor with Pull Start Attached. I have the box from the OS engine, so that's why i think that is the model of the installed engine.

I got a Hobbico Torquemaster 90 Starter, A tool box with an Airbrush kit and a bunch of paint, presumably for painting the body, a set of rear street tires and wheels, a Hitech HS-525BB Hi Speed Ball Bearing Servo New In Box, 2 glo starters, a 4 way wrench and a few glow plugs for $80 bucks. I figured it would be hard to go too wrong with only that much in it. How did i do?

Thats an RTR RC10GT.
I would guess its from 2001.

Thats an MIP Stinger pipe and rear shock tower.
Very cool!

After looking at the pictures, I can see you'll need to replace the tranny, slipper clutch and brake assemblys. You'll also need to purchase the brake linkage.

Check out #7671 in the manuals section.

Are both drive shafts there? This truck came with dog bones and should be replaced with CVD's as soon as possable.

I must have raced at least five different GT's.

I've got the transmission box and the axles are CVD's. They are both present. The transmission does however have two stripped gears. The Spur gear shaft is fine and is made of metal. The idler gear, which is also metal, is stripped, and the Differential gear, plastic, is also stripped. Also, one of the flange bearings for the clutch bell is destroyed and will need to be replaced.

I'm wondering what could contribute to the transmission gears stripping out? For instance, if there is play in the transmission bearings/bushings that is causing the gear mesh to get out of tolerance that could cause the gears to strip. i don't want to just replace the idler and differential gear, only to have them strip out again prematurely because i didn't fix the root cause.

Is there any where to buy a complete transmission that doesn't cost an arm and a leg?

I think you could buy another car for parts for next to nothing. They sold a zillion of the GT's for around 10 years.

My guess as to why the gears in the tranny are stripped out is heat. The idler gear should be plastic. The only metal gear should be the one on the top shaft. Those gears spin really fast and the metal on metal will kill the dif gear, as you've found.

I had a cool Alum. diff gear on one of my Gt's. It would last maby 3 tanks of fuel before getting crunchy. I switched back to the plastic and the diff would last six race nights.

If you have the tranny and the brakes, just order the replacement parts to rebuild it.

I'd pick up a new idler gear, diff gear, diff rebuild kit with new rings, and new bearings for the tranny. The larger bearings are likely to be ok as they had really good seals.

I would also rebuild the shocks too.

ok so i'm ordering some clutch flange bearings, the large bearings for where the diff's exit the tranny, bearings to replace the bushings for the top pin, a new spare top pin, spare tranny case, ceramic balls for the diff, diff rings, shock rebuild kit, several spare diff gears, replacement and a couple of spare idler gears from A Main Hobbies and a screw kit from RC guys on eBay.

That should about cover it?
