Team Associated RC10LS Restoration

Recommended Posts

I am going to present you in this subject, the restoration of this chassis...A team Associated RC10LS (235mm)

It was bought in the US, he's not very good-looking, the chassis is twisted, broken... it won't run like this! This chassis will be fully restored to make a runner...

As is arrived!

The T bar, motor pod are twisted, bumper is broken and the dumper is not the good one!

The underside isn't much better...!

The cleaning has started, I'm going to draw all the parts to be able to machine them if needed.

It's Medium-density fibreboard (MDF)

Like compressed wooden panel.

Here we go!

First, some pics during carbon panel millings!

Wonderful, so the MDF was ridgid templates most excellent!

that chassis is what that car saw in its future when it was being manufactured in the beginning, and it knew it would end up in your laboratory to be a greater car.

Looking good! I still have my RC10LSO (the narrow version of this car) from my carpet-racing days. Looking forward to seeing your progress on this.

For the next step, I need a lower profil nut...but problem, I only have a self locking nut!

It's not a problem, I'll do a little machining with the lathe!

It's an CNC milling machine from Sorotec (German)

Assembly continues!

Chassis is now complete, it's time to mount all the electronics!

The servo is a Savox and brushless combo Hobbywing with a 10.5T motor!
