i really dont know what the value of it is either way, its just hard to tell with those older type chassis like that. But if you go to rc10talk.com pretty much everyone knows all about the older associated cars and someone will most likely know what it could be worth and possibly what the actual chassis model and everything is

I dont think its Associated, you can put that front end on any pan car. Im pretty sure its a Dynamite car. They used to make one like that back in the late 90s, I probably have the RCCA issue somewhere. I remember always wanting one of those, I bet it would be a lot of fun to mess with.

Looks to be an Assoc car. I don't remember Dyn making a car... just the conversion.. there were a handfull of conversion kits out... Dyn, CRC... I had one... don't remember which one.

Might want to ask in the Florida forums. they used to run them at a track in mills pond park... fast cars!!

Probably easier to put it back to elec... then to find the missing nitro parts

Its an Associated RC10L graphite pan car with a nitro conversion. The RC10L chassis looks to be about early '90s when they just came out with the reactive caster front end. It also looks to have the original Associated nylon bumper. Too bad it doesn't have the original graphite nerf bars attached to the chassis.

Break it up and sell the parts. That graphite chassis is in mint condition its worth something to anyone looking to restore an old RC10L.

Edit:
Took a closer look, it seems that you also have the original Associated kit tires. Looks good, no cracks in the foam. You should find the electric pod and try to restore it.

Hopefully.......If or when you decide to put a body, fuel tank, electrics, and maybe some fresh new tires, let us all know how it performs on an outdoor asphalt track. I would be very interested. It looks pretty cool.
