Default BL in RC10 Rebuild

Lookin to spend no more that $160 for a brushless system for a RC10 rebuild. I was lookin at Novaks and the Traxxas VXL. What do you think?

Maybe a 13.5T Novak combo? I don't think you can get a VXL that cheap.

I would drop a novak 10.5 havok system into it.
2nd choice would be castle creations sidewinder 4600 into it.

*IF* it is an Edinger, I wouldn't. Its an older early edition RC10, and could be worth something to the right person. I would look for a different car and leave the Edinger alone. If you do wish to run it, esp. w/ a 6 gear, I would go mild on a BL mainly because finding replacements can be tricky. Much better finding a stealth trans and converting to stealth.

You can probably find a cheap RC10 CE or Team car for reasonable to drop a BL system into. A local racer here ran a BL in a stealth equipped Team car and won a local club race against the newer B4s and XXXs.

A first gen. stealth will drop right in but you have to drill 4 mounting holes in the pan. Nothing else is needed. A B2/T2 stealth MIGHT fit but I'm not possitive.

If you need a stealth buy the case and gear from rpm and get the rest from tower.

I built a stealth last year this way, everything is new. Wasnt cheap but was well worth it.

My avatar shows the RC10CE Graphite that came with the original transmission. If you can find a schlock house or errrr vintage house that carries the original stealth transmission, many of those early stealth transmission kits were aimed at replacing the original transmission and as such, came with a template, an aluminum plate with holes cut out, which you can bolt onto the older pattern and serve as drill bit guides.

Hell, the stealth transmission kit even came with a drill bit if I remember correctly...

I bought my Stealth Transmission from a local Hobby People about 10 years ago or so, when people were running B2s.

Since then, my RC10CE has been ran once or twice and has been shelved. It serves as a great conversation piece though, since people ask me why are there extra holes at the rear end of the chassis!


Honestly, with a little bit of creative work, you can probably bolt on a B4/T4 transmission onto these things. You just have to be creative and make sure you line up the outdrive correctly with the universal shaft/dog bone setup you have.


back to the original question... sorry...

I see you got a Mamba system in your Slash. Why not another one? I have two, one for each of my vehicle. They are wonderful for the price.

The cheapest place to get these that I found is at Rob's R/C Hobbies. I got both of mine there. Or you can Tower Hobbies and use their online discount coupon when you spend over XXX.XX amount thingie they always have.
