Default Rc10L I've been working on

Wanted to show off my rc10l I've been working on. Finally got it driveable. Kinda, it's way to much power for this chassis. I have Era specific electronics for it as well novak t-4 with various motors. Just thought this would be a fun resto mod type car. And it is, if I can keep it going straight lol. Figured I'd share.

Would capped tires hook up better?

Bpw, Looks sweet, I remember these from my days looking at the RC zines in my youth and wanting one but could not really justify the purchase as I was and am more of an off road guy. They are pretty darn sexy cars and some of the best from that era. How much money do you have in it?

20 bucks for the car lol, found it at a flea market guy didnt know what it was. traded some things I had nothing in for the BL system 30 bucks for the reciever already had the transmitter 20 for paint. So 70 bucks total lol. Can't help but think it would look cooler with the novak and a brushed motor in it. Plus the brushless is useless in it as is. May need different tires.

They can be tough to hook up on unprepared asphalt. Caps might work better but probably not. If you can find some rear foam tires in something like pink compound, they usually have pretty good grip. If it's really clean asphalt (blown off, free of dust) the WGT spec tires (Lilac) should work pretty good for milder motors (13.5 1s or 17.5-21.5 2s or 6 cell.)

Rubbing in thick suntan lotion also adds traction to foam tires. We used to do this back in the paved asphalt oval days.

Looks way cool. You could cap the tires with rtv (gasket maker). we would cap foam slot car tires with it on tracks that only allowed rubber. Nice work

Been racing 10L for years. Very easy to adjust things on this . a lot depends on what kind of surface your running on. You didn't say. If it slips, and slides on take off the diff might be too tight. Every track surface is different. We push it backwards and hit the throttle for a short second. You keep loosing the diff nut until the diff spins. then tighten the nut a quarter turn until it takes off smooth. You may have a too small a spur gear on the diff. an 81 tooth 48 pitch might work. Love those 10Ls !
