Default My first hobby grade rc

Well atleast 16 years ago..... Is this rc10 worth anything, I built it when I was 15 and my buddy at the time bought a traxxas and needless to say he was driving while I spent all day putting mine together, but I had a great time doing so. I have wheels for it but no body. Anyone got a clue what its worth? If not share your first hobby grade rc story.

I know to collectors the right RC10 can be worth a lot, but I have no idea which ones are the sought after ones and which are dime-a-dozen. Hopefully some of the RC10 guys can chime in and comment on what you have there. Looks to be in pretty decent shape though.

Too young to remember that thing but I am amused that I've now seen 2 people on this forum with the "if your not first, your last" sig line and both have been spelled wrong!

Here is a list of all the recently sold Vintage RC10s on Ebay. http://completed.shop.ebay.com/i.htm...sc=1That's usually your best place to look.

Good luck with whatever you choose to do with it!

Was the chassis painted (and nose tubes)? What condition is it in underneath.

I see the original arms have been updated to the black ones (all white parts are more desirable), rear tranny brace is missing, all gold shocks (sport or base model - usually means all brass bushings, dog bones not universals also), battery cup missing and gear cover.

Not trying to pick it apart, just telling you what the Vintage heads (like myself) look at first. I say pick up a tranny strap, battery cups, gear cover, drop some electronics in it and have fun. It can still be competitive, if you update the rear axles to T2/T3, you can run T4 wheels on all 4 corners, with a little creative body mounting in the rear, the T4 body also fits.

Wow, what memories from the good ole days, back when all track were loamy and large pin tires were the way to go! Started with a Tamiya Hornet in '79 and progressed upward from there. A few years ago I sold a RC10 Worlds car with black H tub for quite a bit, but it was in great shape. Good luck on selling.

Back in about 86' I believe, I picked up a used Tamiya Grasshopper. Had it for a couple of years then picked up a used Tamiya Super Champ. When I finally got the coin to buy a new RC I got a Kyosho Ultima. They were fun but the 4-5 minute runtimes were a joke! Its so nice to see where electric is today!
