The shocks on your gold tub are better than the associated shocks of today...At least that has been my experience. The gold ano wore away quickly on the originals,but I never had a problem with them holding oil.

Default HELP

Hello,I have been reading this thread and it is very helpful. I just picked up a RC10T here is the descrition :
RC10T roller: Found this while helping my buddy move out of his house. Black chassis and suspension. Gold shocks. I would describe it as decent condition. All the screws hold tightly (including the original 3-piece wheels) EXCEPT the two on top of the Stealth trans case (going through the brace) and the nose plate screw that doubles as the servo save adjustment screw. Bottom of chassis has almost all color worn off. No body. All suspension is impressively tight/slop-free for its age. All bearings/trans roll smoothly. Shocks and diff surely need rebuilding, but feel good for the time it spent on a shelf.

I know nothing about these old trucks, but it has a stealth trans, ( which is prob the 2.25 ratio ) I want to match the current T4 trans, so if I buy the RPM trans 2.65 conversion, I should buy a T4 complete trans w/ slipper and I'll be current right???

Does anyone know if I have to change out the axles to fit current wheels, or will it fit the current wheels already?

Question the part in the description where it says the screw that doubles as the servo save adjustment screw, does he mean the plastic servo mounts?

Does anyone know if I can make a current T4 body fit?
Or does anyone sell old RC10T bodies?

Thank you!

Does anyone know if the slipper clutch from a T4 will fit the RPM 2.65 shaft?

Also what is needed to run current wheels Front and Back on a RC10T?

mr lexan over on rc10talk does the quality repo bodies for the rc10t.

to run the b4/t4 slipper on the rpm 2.65 trans you will need to have the hydradrive topshaft also made by rpm for the 2.65 trans. they pop up on ebay every once in a while.

Thank you! Does anyone have a Hydra Drive Top Shaft they want to sell?

Also, can the T4's internal gears fit in the RPM 2.65 Tranny case?

Are they needed?

no the t4 internal gears will not fit. the stock internal stealth parts are still available through towerhobbies. so if you are needing those they are easy to get.

Need a 2.65 ratio Hydra-Drive top shaft for a RC10T.

Anyone have one they would like to sell?

The original RPM shaft has 17 teeth, the hydra one has to be the same..

The 2.65 box doesn't really offer any advantages over the 2.25 anyway. 2.25 is better for brushless, you don't have to go putting on tiny spur gears and massive pinions to gear it like you do with a B4.

I found the limit of the original gearbox (in both 2.25 and 2.65 form) was a 5.5t in a truck, wouldn't get more than 2 race meets without it munching an idler.
