Default Rebuilding a RC10 Graphite Have Some Pics To Show Model

I Have Had A RC10 Graphite Since 1990 Or 1991.Everything works In It Runs Great. Just Checking To See If I Can Upgrade The Motor To A bushless And Witch One Would Fit. And I Like To Up Grade The Electronics In It What Would Be Good Upgrades That Will Fit In It. Even If I Can Not Upgrade To Brushless I still Like To Upgrade The Electronics And The Motor I Have A Green Machine 2 In It. Even If I Get A Brushed Motor That Is Fine. I have Another RC10 It Looks Like The RC10 Gold But Instead Of Gold It Is Black It Has Never Been Ran It Has ASteel, Brass Or Cooperish Transmission Caseing. What Model Is This,Is It A Good Model Or A Junk Model? Witch Model Is Worth More? I Took It To The Hobby Shop To Get A Speed Controll Put In It And I Had Two Ventage Servos Made By Novak And One Made By Futaba I'm Not Sure Witch One He Will Put In.When I Get It Back I Will Post The Pics.



Thanks

that's a nice example of an early graphite car. it has the older 6 gear tranny. some belive that you can't put big power through it but you can if everything is right with it.
you could also find a used stealth tranny for it.

i think a nice 17.5 or 13.5 brushless setup would be nice ih the old girl.

something like a hobbywing xerun 60amp brusless setup would be great in that car. you can get the esc with or without a motor. the hobbywing motors are good or you could use any of the "big name" motors.

i would stay in the 17.5-13.5 range, anything faster than that will be REALLY FAST and you'll end up breaking stuff.

you can still get parts for these cars both on ebay and on rc10.com.

see rc10talk.com for tons of info on the car and what you can do to make it "modern".

i forgot to add, a few things i would do while in the rebuild stage:

new bearings all around
shock rebuild all around
clean and re grease tranny
pull hinge pins and polish them
swap in some modern wheels and tires
new wing and wing wire

theres a great thread on rc10talk about making the white parts white again.
