SC10 Factory Team Parts List

Factory Team parts were created by Team Associated to provide better performance and durability. Many of these hop-ups were created for the B4 Buggy or T4 Truggy, but they fit on your SC10.

Here are some parts that we think are worth looking into:

#1283 FT T4 Ti Turnbuckle Set - Not something you need right away. Wait until one of your turnbuckles gets bent or worn out from adjusting.

#1770 FT Milled Aluminum Motor Plate, (blue) - If your motor is running hot, this is a good investment.

#3971 Steering Rack Bearings - Get these to smooth out your steering and put less stress on your servo.

#7447 T4 Front A-Arm, Carbon - We love carbon and so should you. Get these the second you break a front A-arm.

#7449 T4 Rear A-Arm, Carbon - Same as the fronts.

#9567 B4/T4 Top Plate, Carbon - This is a great part combined with a front Chassis Brace.

Did just the ball stud come out? Is your SC10 4x4 a RTR? If so grab your manual and read it from cover to cover paying close attention assembly and notes. The turnbuckles are supporter underneath the plastic by a metal insert. You should always look your truck over very well and make sure there are no lose screws or bolts. These particular ball studs should be checked often and installed with a drop of blue loctite to keep them from backing out. I have both the Slash 4x4 and SC10 4x4. I bash with the Slash because it is very tough but the SC10 is my race machine because it handles much better. Good luck to ya.

Has anyone else had the rear turnbuckle pull out of the shock tower. I have a two month old 4x4 with around 2-3 total hours on it. I installed the factory upgrade and after 2 heat races the turnbuckle pulled out at an angle..........

This is my first truck, EVERYONE tried to talk me into a Slash..... I know why.......
