Red face Very quick question I hope.....What was the last model RC10 to come with.....

the gold tub chassis? And if I could hunt one down what might it be worth? It's either that or get a new one and try and convert it to the tub chassis (if it can even be done).

Thinking of getting back into Off-Road (after a big break TC onroad and 1/12th wasn't as much fun as I thought it would be) and I'm getting a touch nostalgic (sp).

Thanks in advance.

I did try and google it, but downloading all the manuals from Associated just to find out doesn't seem like a good use of time lol.

I beleive it was the RC10 CE (Championship Edition), because the Worlds Edition came with the black tube chassis.

Yup, Championship Edition came out around '91-'92, Worlds car was about '93 with the hard anodized pre-milled chassis, and the Team cars were about '90 with a std black anodized version.

I believe there were 2 versions of the CE that came out. I think it first started shipping with the 6 gear tranny but then they later updated it with the Stealth.

Search E-bay for RC10 and you'll find a bunch, pretty much look for the stealth tranny and the front arms will be black and longer...... be prepared to pay a premium, sometimes almost as much as what you'd pay for a brand new kit.....

Default Well no luck at the moment.....

finding and old RC10. The next question then is, does anyone make a goldtub aluminum chassis for a new B4 to get that retro look? I wonder if there would be a market for one?

Thanks in advance.

I remember when they had like six different versions of the RC10. RC10 CE, RC10 Graphite, RC10 Bushed, etc.
