good stuff man..................if that care of yours was like new it'd be worth a packet!!

I have an old RC10 Team Graphite car........looks fully leet0x i recon

i tried it down thetracxk last week........with bald tyres HAHAHA it was hard going in a straight line.

what tyres do you use?.....2" ones? or have you converted the wheels to 2.2" so u can use decent tyres?

cheers

The body is in crap condition, but the chassis and suspension are fully stock and in good nick. Same goes for the diff etc..

Besides the motor and speedo, nothing has been changed including the 2" 3 piece AE rims.

I still have the original box and everything from 1987 (i got it for my 12th birthday)

The team graphite was the world beating car when I was really into RC many years back. Losi had just come onto the scene as well as Schumacher and Traxxas. I really wanted a Yokomo Worlds 91 that Masami drove to victory, but I couldn't afford it only being 16 at the time

Ive got an old Team Associated RC-10T in my cupboard stock everything except I resprayed the chassis dark red, and it has a Rooster Reversible speed controller in it. Put in some motor, i think its a Midnight or something. The L shape plastic piece that goes from the servo to the steering arm is snapped.. but still works as its under a spring..

Anyone wanna buy it?? Comes with a shitload of other crap that I bought when I raced it. Oohh.. and I have a Rhino charger too.. that thing cost me a fortune!

Ok, here's my cheapass little thing, it's a Dirt Thrasher and not a Fox like I previously though. Too fast for indoor use, but looks pretty slow out on the street. 4WD, and steers better in reverse!



No it's not painted, just sticker'd. I'm so lazy!

I'm feeling like doing the same thing after my 5 minutes of fun on the street and having to spend 15 minutes charging it up again

The cool thing is, its exactly the same colour as my real car, just doesn't go quite as hard
Only mods are street rims and tyres as the knobbled rally wheels would wear out quickly on tarmac, cost me $100 tho! Looks like mods in the RC world mimic outrageous prices for mods in the real car world I guess bolting on a monster Apexi turbo is out of the question for an RC car tho!

Rexy.

PS Is it normal for petrol cars to get hot quickly and need to cool down after short run times, even with rich fuel loads?


Fuck thats nice, I wanna RC Car now!
