Default 18 year old NEW RC10!!

So, what now? Leave as is? Make it into a display queen? Or build it and run the snot out of it? No, its NOT for sale. It was a gift from a friend.

Build a shelf queen. If you want a runner get one from Ebay. I wouldn't run it. I have an old RC10CE and to be honest they're not all that much fun when compared to other buggies out there but having a never run car could bring in some $$$ in the future.

Another vote for shelf queen. An RC10 can be had for like $50. Get a cheap one to play with, make that thing of beauty a display. Take lots of pics during the build, should be very nostalgic for many of us...

If the box were still sealed I would say you should just put the box on a shelf and display, but since it appears to have already been opened I would assemble it, get someone to airbrush the body to exact box art specs and make it a shelf queen. Don't drive it, brand new never run RC10's are getting pretty rare!!!

ITBJHO, it should be a shelf queen...but a FUNCTIONAL shelf queen. Get some period-correct parts (motor, ESC...or...MSC...), an ancient JR Python radio...
