I have quite a few Gold Tub RC10s as well as 2 10Ts and a Team Car and a Graphite RC10 that I race in my LHS Vintage class.

Just finished stripping/repainting the body. Decided to bring it with me to the 1/8 track and give it a whirl after the days racing was over. Shelfs are for books not RC cars! BTW, It's Spaz Stix color changing paint, backed with black, which is why the color looks different in the two pics. Running an original Slot machine motor and a 5000mah lipo believe it or not! Was so much fun it brought me back to my childhood. The Wild One was my first RC car, got it in 1985 when I was 8. This is a 2nd one I built about 12 years ago and is still in near mint condition. The 23 year old 1200mah NiCd (with ROAR approved hard case ) actually charges and works just fine amazingly, just not too much punch.

Nope, the A&L was cast aluminum. This is a Houge Composites trailing arm setup.

My green RC10 on page 1 of this thread is the A&L version with the cast aluminum arms.

I used to have a brand new, never ran Kyosho Lazer ZX-R. A friend gave me the kit that had been sitting in his basement for years. Built it up for fun, never planned on running it. Then I sold it, wish I never did that!
