Vintage RC10s and a Tamiya Clodbuster


An old buddy of mine just gave me some old cars and some related items. I now have two complete Associated RC10 buggies and a partially complete Tamiya Clodbuster on an aluminum chassis.

One RC10 has a team car tub chassis while the other has a flat chassis. Both have ancient Tekin brushed ESCs and several old Reedy, Trinity and Diamond modified motors came with them as did a pair of Futaba radios. One is a Magnum Junior, the other a Magnum Sport. The motor on the team car is seized, but the diffs on both cars work smoothly. Looks as if a mouse or two did a number on the team car, so it'll really need cleaning up.

The Clodbuster has an original body in so-so condition. The chassis is a nice aftermarket piece as are the aluminum shocks, but the original Tamiya tires are dry-rotted. It's been converted to 2WD.

Parts are hard to come by, so it isn't worth it for me to convert them into backyard bashers. I have a few winged projects already and I don't need wheeled ones.

I don't want to hassle with eBay, so if anyone is interested, please shoot me a PM and make an offer. No pictures yet, but I'll post some by request.

I'll go ahead and post a picture here for you of the Clod and the buggies since I planned to do so anyway.

The Clod is a roller, nothing more. Hang tight and I'll post them right away.

OK, some photos are in order here. I made no attempt to clean up the models other than to hose off the Clodbuster's body a bit.

There's nothing wrong with its windows; the spots in the photos are simply water spots.

Bugman, feel free to make me an offer and I'll get the exact shipping costs on Monday. I don't believe in gouging people on shipping costs, so I'll turn around and charge you exactly what I'll have to pay.

I'm going to go ahead and close this thread for the time being. I have a couple of interested parties, but I hope the shipping costs won't present a problem and I can't find out what they might be for a couple of days or so. Watch this space!

Sold! Thanks for all the interest. I only wish I had the time and the parts to get these running, but they're going to a good home.
