A builld up of one beast of a nitro powered short scourse truck.
Here is my build of a SC10GT.
Wel my build all started when took a trip to my local hobby shop. www.bluegrasshobbies.com/bg/catalog/ I asked Todd if he had any old nitro stadium trucks. A some what hopped up Staduim Maxx, I call it the PhatMAXX, was the only nitro RC I had. I kinda wanted a RC10GT. Had the Idea of building an all aluminum shielf queen. A week or so later he brough out a busted up RC10GT2. Both front arms and the front shock tower was gone. But not all is lost. It's a factory team kit truck with an OS .12 TZ on it. It had belong to an Associated sponsored driver, that had passed away. He didn't say who he was but some of the T3 bodies I got, that belonged to the same person, had Big D on them. He shot me a price and i jumped on it. Didn't take any pics before I started on it, but here it is after digging through my parts bin.
A little while later I decovered that Team Associated had reliesed the SC10GT. It got me thinking. Can I build one. I already have a lot of SC10 parts boxed up. Body, bumpers, wheels and tires... Did some research and all i was needing was a few more parts. Well back to the hobby shop I go. Had to back order a few of the parts because well they just hadn't been out long enough. While waiting for the parts I ordered up a few more goddies. RPM arm, rod ends, spring cups and front shock tower. Integy bulk head, kickup, steering, and tranny case. Robinson Racing diff., and idler gear. All RC10GT2 parts.
Everything is in and here we are. A near ready to race SC10GT.
I am not a racer, I'm a basher. I'm taking off the OS 12TZ engine and diching the starter box. It's listed on ebay now.
I want an easy start system. I've seen a Traxxas TRX 3.3 on GT and GT2 trucks using a rustler or jato header pipe. So why not the SC10GT. I fitted up the engine from my maxx and it will work fine as long as you keep the stock gt2 fuel tank. I have opt. for the lager 150cc fuel tank. Picking it up Tuesday. Now the starter motor is in the way. I scrached my head then went back to talk with Todd at the hobby shop. He told me about the Losi TEN-T. I looked it up and bingo. The starter motor is on the other side of the engine. A 3.4 engine with a remote start in a small block foot print. Sonds like a winner to me. It's on its way. Along with a second new engine that may find its way on the Maxx. Going to try out a XTM Exhaust Header for the X-Cellerator 1/10 Nitro. I hope every thing fits.
Pasts list and more pics coming soon.
Now you going to have to wait a little longer for the rest of the story. It's a work in progress.
