For and electric R/C the basics are....

- transmitter
- reciever
- servo x 1
- Esc
- 540 motor
- 6 cell batt pack if it runs on 6 cells(Im not familiar with the rc10ce but I'm guessing it runs on 6 cells)
- charger(preferably peak detection)

And if it has rubber tyres then you may need CA glue to glue the tyres to the rims.

get spare parts....especially front suspensin arm....and turnbuckles.....if your not carfull youll need em...get at least 3 servos.....cuase if you hit something you might strip it...you can get em cheap so its no biggie..get the intellipeak charger..its 70 and had discharge, cycle, and peak.....het a mod motor, theyre more fun...GET AN ESC WITH REVERSE.....make sure it has reverse disable...i know that not having reverse made it suck when i first started....have fun..hoped we hlped..if not he did.......oh yeah and remember the higher number on the battery, the beter.....dont get under 1700....my experience.....but have fun

Don't waste your money on a stack of spare parts and servo's - you'll probably end up with a box of bits you'll never use - just replace bits as they break.

I've been racing for a total of about seven years - I've broken one servo in that time.

associated break servos alll the time around here...and these people race for years........that didn't make sense, but believe me ...its like a total of 40 bucks, just get em....would you rather break something and not have it....or have it so you can keep playin.....you make the decision, always safe than sorry..
