Default Hmm; Convert my old RC10T to an SC10?

So I have an old RC10T (and almost 2 other RC10-variants worth of parts) that aren't in use. I can buy an SC10 body, wheels, and tires for a little less than $80, and it won't be hard to stretch the chassis to fit the wheelbase or make body mounts.

Are the 10T and T4 suspensions close enough in width that the body will fit? I imagine the 10T is a little narrower.

I need a new body and tires for it anyway, so the cost is basically a wash. I'm not averse to spending $185 on the kit, but it would be hard to resist spending $30 more and getting radio gear as well.

It's not going to be that far off, I think you would need to stretch it 1.5 to 2 inches to fit the SCT body wheel base.

Yeah, the wheelbase stretch would be easy, my main concern is the width. Do you have one? I need the measurement across the front and rear fenders of the body.

I have a set of RPM Torkerz laying around, if the widths line up I will just put a set of Pro-Line Dirt Works tires on them and all it good. I'm getting excited now LOL

Edit: Looks like that may not work; the SC10 wheels have much less offset, which I guess is the reason for the 3.0" I.D of the wheel, to clear the suspension. It still might line up if the 10T has a narrower track from the outset.

SLapped it together in about an house, like riding a bike.... The truck measures just over 12" wide with standard 2.2" truck wheels, which is a bit too wide for the SC10 body. Wheels and tires it is then. Bummer is that Tower is out of stock of the rear silvers, mounted of unmounted.

I want to do my version of the RC10T SCT with the JConcepts body and Rulux wheels....

Check this build from RC10Talk.com, it's a custom Stretched RC10T chassis, but everything else is stock: http://www.rc10talk.com/viewtopic.php?f=36&t=10893

It looks like the body will fit perfectly over the SCT wheels and tires...

Excellent, thanks for the link; looks like it will fit perfectly. I was going to do a fiberglass double-deck chassis. Looks like the front kick-up is less than the old 30 degrees, but I doubt I'll bother to change that, unless it looks really obvious.

Interesting; he must like leaking shocks....

Dang it. I saw R/C Plant listed the rear wheels and tires in stock, so I order fronts, rears, and the body from them, and now I get an email saying the rears are out of stock.

Yeah, I was going to get my Mini-T running again, and get the Losi hard-anodized shocks sorted out, but I figured I would save time and just dump a bottle shock oil all over the truck instead...

I read there is a redesign coming for the stock rear wheels, so they won't strip out as easily; I wonder if this is why the silver rears are all out of stock?
