Default HELP: Team Associated sct10 build

Hey I bought a team associated sct10(in pieces) because it has a castle creation motor/esc I wanted for another project i'm going to do in the future. But first I want to try and build this thing and get it running and see what its like and how good it is. I'm looking for any tips you could give me on this and I have some pictures if you could tell me what i'm missing or what I would need.










Sooo.... So far I just testing out the looks and seeing what I have to do. I'll possibly be able to build 2 of them or 1 and a half at least. This is going to be my first time really building something especially with no real instructions to follow. this is going to be some fun!

1st I'm going to clean the parts and put together one of the rc's, then I'm going to organize all the extra parts and see what I can do. feel free to give me any tips or help me a long the way. I'm going to try my best but ill document everything just to keep records.

Sorry for not updating during this quarantine im just trying to get as much done as I can In my life right now. So for I took apart everything (except the rear end) , cleaned it and removed the electronics out. Right now the chassis is in 3 pieces. I cleaned it with soap and water then sprayed everything with wd40, I had to use bike grease that I had for all the metal stuff. So far I didn't notice anything broken or out of place the only thing I noticed was a lot of dirt. Actually I did notice something, the front shocks had little to no oil in them.

Once I was done all of that and i put it back together i started making a list on stuff I know for sure im going to need.

-Shock oil

-servo

-reciever and transmitter

-Also to test the electronics i have and see if they work.

So now im going to work on cleaning the centre chassis and then disassembling the rear end, cleaninig it and rebuilding it like the front end then I can put it together and I should be done with the rebuild and should have a roller with no electronics installed. Then I can start sorting through the extra parts and see if I can make another roller out of it.

All I really did was clean it, wd 40 then re-assemble. No Upgrades yet just used the parts I got. Now I gotta go to the next one. I will update this later on and change the name of the post.

google the instruction manual for that truck and find the PDF file. That's what I did when I bought a used SC10 (2WD) and it made all the difference. Have a ruller to measure screw length and know the different screw head abbreviations. The go together pretty easily.


found if for you

Thank you so much this is going to help me out a lot, There's too much parts to sort through its like building a kit. But im going to make a new thread on that and take a lot more pics. I had fun with this just going to update with some more picture then ill make an finished build thread. So 2 threads im going to do to keep track with these builds ill post a link when I start.

I'd ditch the crystal radio and move to a 2.4 ghz system. I'm sure it was a nice radio in it's day but fairly antiquated by today's standards.

I'd be more concerned about that servo. That thing screams, "Take me back to the '80s." I don't know exactly what year that servo came out, but I'm pretty sure they were the servos that came in the box with transmitters back in the day...plastic gears, and, if you're lucky, you may see 50 oz-in of torque.
