^ This. . is the most straightforward route. Why do it any other way and add expense as well as complicate things more than it is already?

The reason for the front cover was to easily bolt on the stock AC, CAS, and coolant hose configuration. Less things to change, so less work, and more availability of parts off the shelf.

I'm revisiting my childhood by getting back into RC cars so I got myself a gift for Christmas

I've been keeping my eye out for a Kyosho SuperTen for some time now and I finally found one at a reasonable price.


The interesting part is what I want to do with it. . .

Here's a hint


What about yourself?

Hell yeah, that compressor will be handy for sure. Do you need a stock for the 22 or do you already have one?

I would be down with going to the range but I'll be going out of town that day.

Dammit Zach! I sold my R/C's before Morgan was born. I had 2 HPI Nitro RS3's. Both with 2 speed gearboxes, one with the .15 engine, one with a .12.

I actually didn't ever really get into those two, probably because I grew up racing electric Losi buggies and trucks. I should have never sold those either, but they helped fund the move South.

That's awesome! I remember the HPI RS3s, those were a popular chassis. My first car (although a step down from this one) was very similar to this SuperTen I just got except the center diff came standard with the QRC system (reverse) and I added a two speed trans.

I'm pretty excited to get back into the hobby and look forward to adding the hop-up parts like I would have done when I was in middle school. This Kyosho will get a two speed trans, aluminum and carbon replacement parts (if I can find them, it's an old car), and of course the rotary.

The rotary engine is the tricky part for this build, OS discontinued these years ago so I just have to keep my eyes out for a good used one on eBay. . Jess has a few and said I could use one years ago when we were still at the shop but after running it by him the other day I assume he forgot and wants to keep them. . Which is understandable since these things are going for astronomical prices especially if NIB! So anyways, I'm just gonna enjoy this as it is and keep an eye out for the Wankel.

Super sweet. I had FD bodies for mine, since for some reason prior to 2010 they didn't make any FC bodies, except for 1/12 and smaller scale.

The only reason I never considered the Kyosho, and some other brands is I am not a fan of belt drive. Personal preference.
