Arrow How's My Project Coming Along?

Hey guys!
I recently got a gold RC10 buggy chassis. I was gunna throw it away, but I did some "research", and found that I could rebuild it no prob!!!! Here's how it's coming along. I need front tires, and then it'll be a rolling chassis! YAY!!!!!!

That normally came with white components. Where'd the purple stuff come from[dye, maybe]? Looks good.

you guessed it, dye. they guy I got most of the parts from dyed them purple. There are a few that aren't purple. I think it looks OK with the purple, cuz It kinda goes good with the gold... <I like this

Are you looking to race it or restore it?

I'm sure you could find all new parts for it at smaller hobby shops, I know a few shops around my house still have RC10 parts laying around, you might want to search.

just to restore, I might race it once or twice. But if I race, I'll put the graphite chassis back on... why do you ask saints?

Change the battery cup to allow the battery to run straight up and down the center.... it will allow the car to trasition better......

BTW: the gold bathtubs are possibly the most versatile cars ever.... you could race all weekend doing different types of racing and win each time with only minor set-up changes and tire changes..... just think---------

Friday- Off-road
Saturday morning- Dirt oval
Saturday night- Asphalt on-road
Sunday- asphalt oval

Name one other chassis that could do it all successfully!?!?!?!

I'll have to redrill the holes, some dumba$$ drilled 'em crooked, that's why it's like that... Ok I'll do that, hmm, sounds like like the jolly gold buggy gets to race! Thanx for the Opinion!

Family Hobbies should have parts for it, maybe even Hobby People will have a few left over, I know when I worked there we had the 3 piece wheels for it, they might still have em since there is no demand for them.
