What's the deal with the steering arms being so swept back from the servo-saver to the steering arms? Other cars are set up with the arms in a straight line from the servo-saver to the steering blocks.

It obviously works (results are everything!) so I am just curious as to the theory or practice behind it. Josh or Bruce care to enlighten us? Thanks.

Joining the club. Mine should be here next week. The RK10 needed company. A few of us are going to try to get 12th going again at our club since we dove in head first with Pro 10. I'm trying the SkyRC Toro 1S ESC.

That may be premature on my part. I'm guessing it'll be out with the next batch.

I should know better, it took me 3 weeks before the Roadkill shipped. I am waiting like everyone else. Everything else to make it go should be here this week or early next.

Default wgt?

Wondering how long it takes for a response on an order. Been about 12 days now and nothing. Tired calling Bruce tried email..... we even wanted to bring them into our shop, but nothing. Have seen speedmerchant reply here so maybe soon we'll hear something.

From what I understand, speedmerchant is a one man operation. If you check the news feed on sm website, he worked through the weekend on orders. I'm still waiting on my rev8 pro. I originally ordered a rev8 sport days before the pro release. I got an email from Bruce, basiclly offering to upgrade to the pro at no additional charge - just exchange the value for some spare parts on the order, which I thought was really cool. From all the feedback I see on the rev8 sports and the road kill 10's, it will be well worth the wait.

It took a little over 4 weeks to get my Roadkill. I know I told Danny it took a couple but I just checked my receipts.

Be patient grasshopper It will come
