    Crappy pic, and if you could see the car with more detail you would definately see that it has seen better days. Still, with all the mods and titanium bits in it, it flies :)

    GV 1/10 scale chassis with OS 0.12 engine and EVO Lancer shell. I'll post some pics when I've finished rebuilding it.

    Goes fast but handles pretty poorly. I'm looking at getting a new chassis and hopefully keeping the engine since I'm quite happy with it.

    I'm open to suggestions.

    Got my car today peeps, Went through two tanks of fuel allready, heading back out this arvo... Fucking Awesome fun it is

    Its A GV Models 1/10th V8 Supercar with An OS 12CV X Pullstart Engine in it

    I haven't crashed it today yet.. which is good

    I got to open her right up a few times

    Only problem is Im out of 5% fuel, which the motor is tuned for, Ive got a whole bottle of 15% here.. ill just have to re-tune

    Only other problems where It has no brakes, the dude broke the brake disk type thingo... makes it a little harder for a learner

    And the arial cover thingo (hard plastic thing) is stuffedd.. I gotta head on down to Toyworld on Monday and get a new Brake Kit and a new Aerial

    No Piccys yet, when my digi cam gets back from brizzy they'll be straight up... (prolly wed next week, hopefully)

    Cheers all, If ya don't see me around much anymore, Its cause im out having fon with my RC car...

    I got a pretty cool electric 4wd buggy type car. I could post pics, but that would mean getting my camera and getting the thing out to take pics :rolleyes:
    I don't really use it much any more because the battery would die so fast and take so long to recharge. Spending more money on a battery is a waste of money. Can it be converted to gas easily? Gas sound like much more fun :) and no more recharging/low power and having to run out and get the thing.

    I have an original Associated RC-10 with the gold aluminum tub chassis. It has a HiTec ESC, and a Tamiya Dynatech motor. Its not pretty but it still goes well and gives good competition to some of the Losi's and newer RC-10s at the local track. But I'm always behind the eightball compared to new lighter cars.

    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 :)
