I hear all the time on the traxxas forum that people go to auctions, or garage sales, and hit the jackpot and find awesome deals on rc cars or trucks. Well Yesterday that finally happened to me! I was at a garage sale and came across an RC, not sure if I can tell you but since this is the alley I will it was an RC10GT complete minus the header bolts, has the proline steering, rpm rod ends, aluminum shocks, hitec servos, associated .15 with TONS of compression! this thing has a lot of nice parts, I originally bought it for the servos, to put in my T-maxx, but once I got it home seen that it was complete I just needed to clean it up and put it back together! So today I started to put it together, did find out I need a new fuel tank, this one has had fuel just sitting in it and has a bunch of gunk in it, instead of cleaning it out I am just getting a new one! It also came with two crowd pleaser type bodies, Plus all of the crystals and hitec radio, granted the radio is old still I can't get over it, and I paid???............$10:p :p :p :p :p :D :D :D :D
Tell me what you think, did I overpay?? LOL:D Wish it were a traxxas, as I like my maxx!

Nice find. how old do you think it was.
I don't know how old it is, I would say a couple of years old??? here are some pics, now I have cleaned this up a little,

no way. that for $10. man you got lucky. you should put a 3.3 in there and see what she does.
05-20-2007, 09:10 PM
I thought about putting a 2.5 in it, a 3.3 I think would tear the rear end out!!!
05-20-2007, 09:15 PM
yay, your probably right. it's old and probably weaker. i think it would get some good speed though.
05-20-2007, 09:47 PM
has anyone tried to put a 2.5 or equivalent motor in a RC10GT?? If you have what upgrades did you have to do??
05-21-2007, 02:22 PM

05-21-2007, 03:33 PM
Like I told you at the track, I will still give you $30 for it for Blake lol.

if you didn't want to keep that you could have took it and just put it up on ebay and got a lot more for it than you payed for it.

I had a 2.5 in mine for a while, then I sold the motor and put the OS15cv back in it, I got mine at a pawn shop for $25 with robinson racing clutch bell spur gear and tranny internals, aluminum a arms the OS15cv and graphite shock tower in the front and the mip 360 degree stinger pipe they wanted $150 for it but they had it for over a year, and I told them that nobody would want to buy it without the radio and not seeing it start up, He asked me what the most I would pay for it was and I told him $25 and he said sold, I sold my car stereo that I had laying around to a different pawn shop so I could get the money for it:D
