      (except bolts --> available in separate hardware kit as linked above) 

      Two gearbox casing variants available - depends on the idler gear type you have: 

       

      LiPO 2S full length battery

      For using 2S full sized LiPo batteries (length ~139mm) the front battery cup can be moved to the forward position holes (8mm difference) and then you can swap to the other supplied 'long' battery strap so that the top holes still line up!

       

       

      Shapeways

      • We have also made some of the printed parts available through the Shapeways 3D printing service: GP3D Shapeways Shop
      • You can order directly from them if so desired - however our parts are better colour match to the original RC10 nylons!
      • For your information we make a margin of approximately $5AUD/$3USD per item on those parts via Shapeways.

       

      WHAT ELSE DO YOU NEED!?

      Standard RC10 parts required/suggested:

      We started with a purchase of a cheap as possible second hand RC10T, the key items suggested to obtain are:

      • Shocks Front (1.02")
        • Note: these truck items are longer than the original RC10 shock bodies
        • Reference measurements from pivot bolts centre-to-centre:
          • Extension max: 88mm 
          • Compression min: 63mm
      • Shocks Rear (1.32")
        • Note: these are the same as the original RC10 shock bodies
        • Reference measurements from pivot bolts centre-to-centre:
          • Extension (with internal limiters): ~91mm 
          • Compression min: 69mm
      • Stealth gearbox internals (gears/bearings/layshaft/diff) and hardware
      • Gear cover
      • CVDs
      • Front steering blocks
      • Front steering block carriers & king pin
      • Steering bell cranks
      • Hinge pins
        • RC10T: all hinge-pins are perfect
        • RC10: front inner are too short, others are perfect
        • These measurements are between the clip grooves
        • Measurements (between inside of e-clip slots):
          • Rear Inner: 51mm (~52mm would also work ok)
          • Rear Outer: 29mm (28mm would 'just' work ok)
          • Front Inner: 38mm ideal, RC10T is 40mm which also works ok - you can shim the end play as desired
          • Front Outer: 26mm 
      • Ball cups and ball studs
      • All bearings for gearbox, front wheels and rear uprights
      • General 4-40 & 8-32 hardware 

      Note: the motor plate from the RC10T is anodized black, therefore if you wish to use the Gold colour - you will need to source this separately, along with the rear TQ10/RC10 curved motor guard plate (or cut off the rear part of a trashed gold pan chassis - if you happen to have one lying around - I'm pretty sure that's what the originals were actually from!!!)

      Note: to allow clearance of the rear inner camber link ball/ball cup you will need to cut/dremel out a small section of the motor plate (photos to come!)

       

      After market/repro parts recommended:

      These are not original RC10 parts!

      • NoCoast shop category: GP3D - RC10GX
      • Top deck standoffs front posts (2 piece pack available soon!)
      • Wing Mount Tower Posts
      • Wing Buttons
        • Yokomo TH-1 wheel adaptors
        • Turnbuckles 4-40 Retro
          • Camber Link - Rear: 1 5/8" (2x)
          • Camber Link - Front: 2" (2x)
          • Steering Link - Front: 2.5" (2x)
        • Grub Screw
          • Steering Bell-crank Middle Link: 4-40 1/2" Steel Grub Screw(1x)
        • Hinge pins
          • These measurements are between the clip grooves
          • As per above an RC10T provides you all the required hinge pins, alternatively any aftermarket 1/8" (0.124") hinge pins of the correct lengths will work:
          • Rear Inner: 51mm (~52mm would also work ok)
          • Rear Outer: 29mm ideal (28mm also work ok)
          • Front Inner: 38mm ideal, RC10T is 40mm which is long but also works fine - optionally you can shim the end play as desired
          • Front Outer: 26mm
