Default RC10DS - 1969 Camaro Project payback

Happy New Year!!!

In February 2017 I was given a RC10DS and asked to bring it back to life by a buddy of mine. No deadline, no rush....as payment i received an 1:8 scale Ofna buggy with pull start Hyper .21 engine and servos (no radio). The deal was sealed at a handshake.

DS Project car as received


Missing parts: Wheels, wheel bearings, Axle drive cups, dog bones, axle hubs, axle bearings, outer hinge pins, tie rods, servo mounts, slipper clutch, gear cover, front and rear stabilizer bars, and front shock end mounts. The rear bulkhead and battery cup have missing areas so those two items will be replaced.

I started by putting the aluminum parts through several applications of Easy-Off over cleaner in order to remove the black coating.




The engine mount needs a few more applications of Easy-Off


The gear box will be freshened up...the diff drive cup ends will be cleaned and polished


Some elbow grease and sand paper i polished up the engine mount, nose plate, nose tubes, and axle cups.






Check out the Diff now...BAM!!! Polished




Chassis polishing....B-Stamp.





Suspension mounts & Arm installed.


Rear bulkhead replaced and stainless steel hardware used throughout.






Front end bumper was replaced and stainless steel hardware used. Front stabilizer bars installed.


The nose tubes were polished up and the front end looks mighty clean in my opinion





Engine mount just got a new RPM gear cover


This photo is as far as ive gotten with the project.


Next on the agenda is cleaning and mounting the shocks, Installing the fixed gear hub (part #6562) to eliminate the slipper clutch, and adding the ESC/Motor combo.

Will update as soon as i make some progress....i got a few DS projects up my sleeve!

Update: I've progressed slowly with this project and im happy to say that i have reached the end. A few pics of my progress followed by the completed car. The car will remain clear as my buddy wants to do the paint job.

Team shocks mounted:





Factory Works Battery brace installed




HPI 1969 Camaro body trimmed and mounted




Motor/Esc Selection: Castle Creations Sidewinder 3 5700kV






Steering Servo mounted


Completed Project - The Great Finale!

















My Buddy can't wait to get this on his shelf!
Too bad he wont run her because she is a smooth roller. Gear mesh is perfect and quiet.

Let me know what you think!

My buddy wants to paint this car in white with black stripes. I may end up doing that for him if he doesn't pick it up soon. He may love it even more if its fully painted
