RC10 World’s Car 1/10 Electric Buggy Kit by Team Associated
This product was added to our catalog on March 27, 2014.The RC10 World’s Car is the pinnacle of vintage RC10 buggy performance. Take a journey through time and drive a Team Associated RC10 World’s Car — it’s worlds better now than it was back then! The replica retains the spirit of the original RC10 Worlds car that crowned Brian Kinwald as 2WD I.F.M.A.R. World Champion in 1993, but includes modern-era upgrades that help to dramatically improve performance.
The RC10 World’s Car is equipped with updated V2 hard-anodized threaded shock bodies and aluminum adjustment collars to provide improved performance and adjustability. The drivetrain features the famous Stealth 3-gear transmission with a ball differential, CVA axles and V2 slipper to harness the power of modern brushless motors. A durable plastic gear cover was added to protect the V2 slipper and gears. The included 2.2” wheels fit current 2WD buggy tires so racers can select the right tire for their track.
The RC10 World’s Car kit updates make the buggy easier to build and service without altering the authentic look of the original car. The black hard-anodized machined chassis, trimmed front kick-up plate, black motor mount, and nose brace tubes look like the original parts. Some plastic parts have been updated to improve durability, accept modern batteries and components, or increase performance. Plus, the parts are color matched with the original World’s car kits, and all are are backwards compatible with original RC10 Worlds Kit.

4 stars only because you cant give 5 stars with as many little issues as I had. Having said that, they're little issues, and not major. Issues: Shock oil had leaked and coated entire shock bag contents. Had the tight transmission issue (although it is a non issue after you run it.) The WC battery strap system requires you to remove a 4-40 screw repeatedly from nylon to remove the battery (I added b5 battery thumb screws). Kit could have come with a battery foam to run shorty forward too. Also, do get the kyosho flanged bearings instead of using the bushings in the steering.)
First it does not come with tires. I bought a set of dirt tires, extra rims and a set of street tires.
Second buy a set of B44.2 REAR/CENTER CVA axles, Associate part # ASC9911.
With the rear suspension completely extended down I kept throwing the dog bones out of their sockets. The B44.2 version is around 1/8 inch longer than the ones I got in my kit and that made all the difference!
Last buy some tool less battery strap thumb screws, part # ASC1787. The hard case battery I have does not allow the kit battery strap to be removed by pinching the battery box inwards.)
Also this car with a brushless system is simply amazing. Kinwald and Associated had the right idea bringing this back.
Cannot recommend highly enough.)
