    RC10 Team Car (~1990)

    Greetings! This is my first post, so I thought I'd share a little project that I'm about to embark on... resurrecting my old RC10 Team Car from the early 90’s. >>

    A little background first… In the late 80’s, like any 10-12 year-old kid, I was into RC cars… I started with a Tamiya Clodbuster, then went to a Kyosho Ultima, and finally ended with an RC10TC. As the 90’s progressed, I moved away from the RC community and my gear just sat and collected dust. Now, at the age of 33, I re-discovered the RC world when I saw a video of the re-released Tamiya Lunchbox, and decided that I had to have one. Then my brother got back into it with a Traxxas Stampede… Next thing I know, we’re rifling through my parents’ closets looking for our old gear! Anyhow, long-story-short, here we are now… >>

    I pulled out the old RC10 Team Car, and considering it’s 20+ years old, it looks like it’s in great condition. I didn’t really bash it too much back in the day, so it’s not too surprising.>>

    Anyhow, it’s currently equipped with an aftermarket wide-A-arm kit from RPM, is fully loaded with Novak and Futuba gear from the same generation, and is lowered (why I did that, I have no idea). But I’m slowly going to get it back up and running, and ready for the dirt. >>

    As with anything, pictures are probably worth more than what I’ve written above… so look for those soon.>>


    Thanks!>>

    RE: RC10 Team Car (~1990)

    thanks yah, it's a fun car... electronics are skitterish, so i'm debating just dropping a brushless system in it. like a castle or reedy. not sure though, just got a stampede 4x4 vxl, so that's keeping me busy

    RE: RC10 Team Car (~1990)

    thanks, yah it's a good car.

    question for you guys - if i drop a reedy 3300kv brushless system in it, what pinion should i use?  it has stock stealth tranny gearing and will probably run buggy wheels, MAYBE slap some truggy wheels on it for fun.  oh and i'm just running nicd batteries for now.

    I would be very careful running that buggy. The RPM front ends are getting more difficult to find every day. Great lookin buggy btw!
