trick it out with rpm a-arms, front and rear, they're totally worth it. and the rpm bumper for the sc10 is great too, it holds up to a lot of punishment. and if you want better traction, upgrade to better tires, the stock ones kinda suck

there's always birthdays and holidays, LOL. the a-arms aren't too expensive, like 10 or 15 bucks for fronts, and maybe about the same for rears.

First off, is it a kit, RTR, Brushless?

What kind of track are you going to run on?

Do you know what setup it has? This is a better setup than the stock RTR, and it only needs front springs and front castor blocks to make the truck much more stable.

Good luck,


Chris

I think that rpm front bumper is a good buy. Its not very expensive and can save the 30.00 chassis in a crash.


I've bought a lot of stuff for mine, but 95% of the things were unnecessary.

30k oil in the diff or black grease and tires. Mind your gearing

and tires! Don't let the rear sag too much as it makes a big difference on how it turns.

get tyres that suit the surface of your track and replace parts with RPM parts when they break NOT before, no point replacing parts if theres nothing wrong with them.

The SC10 can be your worst nightmare if it's not setup properly. If you stick with it and be patient, it's a fantastic racer. I've seen many have great success with it. Like others have said, make sure you have the right tires. The stock AE tires are absolute trash on anything other than a hard packed high grip surface. The RTR setup is totally inadequate for anything other than making donuts in the dirt.
