I have no clue about the parts (slipper clutch??) but when running in snow the front end is bad, not the steering, but the way its designed, gets snow stuck everyware. They sell gold anno.?

OK, I've got a few Q's ... coming from electrics and new to nitro. Just got a barely used RC10GT FT and in the process of rebuilding it (not sure the original owner did a 100% job). Most of what I know about this truck is from browsing Associated's site and also Jodie Grein's great RC10GT site:

http://www.gj.net/~geerhed/index.htm

Anyways, I noticed Robinson Racing sells a steel clutch bell & spur combo, and they also sell non-plastic diff gear, idler, and Ti topshaft.

I'm wondering, does the Stealth tranny have some sort of weakness where these metal gears are really necessary, or are people buying them because they're neat hop-ups (and they have the extra cash)? For one metal spur, I can get quite a few plastic ones from RRP or Kimbrough. I noticed Jodie recommends the plastic Kimbrough's. I'd love to hear what some of the more experienced drivers think.

Regarding the slipper ... I don't know much about the history of the RC10GT, but I do know I've got a fairly new FT model with the non-tub chassis and the current slipper design - which I've read was an improvement over the previous slipper. At Jodie Grein's site, he says the RRP slipper (blue color) has a much better pad than the current stocker. Allows more slippage with less wear for loose conditions, and doesn't squeel as much as the stocker.

Gold ano chassis? I think I've seen them around, but only old ones in a tub style.

How old is the RC10GT you have?
The older ones with the black tub chassis had a problem with the chassis flexing along a line between the rear suspension and the engine mount. This caused the gear mesh to change and the spur gear to strip if you hit a bump hard enough. This is why rrp sells the steel spurs. A number of firms also made chassis braces to cure the problem.
The internal transmission gears are ok as standard but the idler can strip occasionally and needs fairly regular replacement. Metal dler gears hold up better.

DW -

Good info, thanks. Would you say with the newer alum chassis, the metal spur is more a luxury than a necessity?

And with a metal idler as you suggest, would that cause the topshaft to wear quicker? I noticed RRP sells a *TI* topshaft - perhaps its meant to be run with that idler?

It's good having the metal one, I was stripping plastic ones like nothing, must be the .15 engine.

Were you stripping gears with the black tub or the newer flat blue chassis? Also, I'm sure you had your gear mesh dialed in, right?
