Default RC10DS - Lamborghini Gallardo

The story goes like this, i acquired two Associated DS cars and a 3Racing FGX F1 car in trade for a new in the box Tamiya F201. My buddy warned me that the DS cars needed work. The chassis' had been sharpied over to hide the scrapes and scratches. the tires were torn and both cars needed a few parts here and there. I still wanted them.

i got a custom powder coated chassis that was originally orange anodized. i guess the guy placed decals , powder coated then removed the decals. not sure what the technique was but it looked cool as he placed a Lamborghini logo and the bull on them.

needless to say i was stuck getting a Lambo body. The car has a MIP ball bearing steering setup, the tranny was freshened up with new diff balls, diff rings, and diff gear. The wheels came from an unbuilt NTC3 kit i had in the closet. The Lambo body is a PVC body that came from overseas.

Its a little odd seeing a DS sport a Lambo body but it seems to work. This old car was given a new lease on life with style.

let me know what you guys think.

Looks pretty killer with the custom Lambo stuff, even if it is a limiting in your body selections...sort of. I dig the color matched wheels/body.

Did you do any work to the chassis as far as the scratches go? I donít notice anything.

Me being a sucker for carbon fiber though...a nice CF wing would look good.

That looks awesome. I've always been a sucker for black-tub RC10s, and the RC10DS is no exception. I'm hoping to stumble on an affordable one someday to add to my ever-growing collection of RC10Ts and T2s.

Thanks! If ever i want to take car in different direction i can remove the black and gold coatings and go aluminum. The wheels and body color were the way to go with this lambo the wheels are 0 offset so the fit perfect on the body which i believe is 190mm.
The original DS's chassis was junked due to the scrapes and scratches. The Lambo logo chassis i had purchased as is a while ago and kept in box until this project. It is a gold chassis with outer black powder coat.

I may change wing and body in future. .

Be careful, once you get a DS you may find yourself getting a few more. My first was a nitro DS purchased some time in May of 2013. Right now im at 12 finished and semi finished DS cars, and 8 or 9 rollers that need work. Ive stopped purchasing cars until i finish the collection of projects i have going. Unless something catches my eye
