My RC10 Gold Tub Project – Part 1


About a year ago, I’ve bought a vintage “A” stamped Team Associated RC10 gold tub buggy. I always wanted one but in the 80’s I was broke and at school. After having this piece of art collecting dust on a shelf, I thought it was time for a complete rebuild.

For this first part, I’ve completely disassembled the buggy and did a quick inspection of every parts. at first glance, I would say that 95% are okay and just need a little “white” treatment to refresh their look.

So here are few pictures from the day I’ve bought the buggy and one once completely disassembled. Still have a lot of work to do but this is my winter project, so there is no hurry…. 🙂

  1. I also have an original gold pan (actually bought it my self when I worked at a hobby shop for basically cars and parts) in similar condition. I have been thinking about restoring it after the owner of the local hobby shop where I race now strongly discouraged me from racing it the buggy class. How do you plan to ‘whiten’ the plastic as mine is also showing some age.

    1. You can put all the white parts in peroxide bottle in the day sun for few days. It will make ton a little bubbles and your parts will be whiter after. That’s what I’ve done.
