LOL, so like I mentioned in the other thread, I've no worries about this RC10 I just picked up as I had one a couple decades ago. It did come in today and it's definitely not as nice as Jester's. One of the front nose tubes is bent and the nose plate itself seems to be a bit tweaked. But I'm up for the challenge! I'll start the thread on it soon enough.
Update on the T:
I have the body trimmed out as well as the gear cover (both from Team Blue Groove). The body, as I do with all of my RC bodies, was trimmed using the X-Acto knife score and break method for nice, clean cuts all around. The gear cover was trimmed using body scissors I'll probably do a little more trimming on the rear of the T-clone body to give it a little more modern look.
Although the pic shows all the electronics in place, I have yet to solder and mount everything in. I get very particular about my wire routing so I take my time in this area and dwell upon how everything is going to be tucked away with a minimal amount of wire.
The tires shown are not what are going to be used. The fronts are Losi Directional Ribs in Red compound and the rears are Panther Wookies in Clay compound. They were part of what I had in my tire stash from my XXX-T hoard. More than likely I'm going to go with JConcepts turf tires.
I'll have a lot more time to work on these two machines in the next couple of weeks so you'll surely see some good progress. I do have some work to do on my Gelande II as well, but it's mostly just tire mounting stuff.
