I just gave it a go, clearly it was drilled for a 1/12 pancar mini servo that you could flip for weight bias.

Eventually looking at this...

Gotcha, it was designed for a mini servo. Wow that kopropo servo puts out ALOT of torque compared to other mini servos.

My axle set has been sorted, still waiting for the kit to be shipped.
I'll be running a futaba S9650 servo.

Default Oh Nellie!!

This is RK10 #2 that got to run RK10 #1's car...until I finish mine.

In my 25 years in this hobby I've not wheeled a finer chassis. This car is absolutely composed and manageable at any speed. We run on a medium to large indoor carpet track (+/-100ft straight), crappy carpet at that. Pretty tight layout.

Any concerns about racing this chassis on any reasonable sized carpet track is utter nonsense. Complete rubbish. Not sure where that rumor started. Stupid good, stupid fun. Money all the way around.

Bruce...

Whatever other projects you are doing can't be more important than making more of these kits - we sold at least six tonight.

Funny story. Happened tonight. We're at the track. prepping cars. The RK 10 is ready. I drive it, Stan drives it, Vue drives it and Cesar drives it. Stan puts his other stuff away and goes to work on his car, sole focus. Cesar leaves and calls another racer, who calls Vue. They discuss the car over the phone. Vue then Quietly packs up the 4 cars he's come to practice with and says "you ruined it for me, I will not drive another RC car until I have one of these."

Then I drove it for another 10 minutes. It used about 3200mAh for 15 minutes. Tires were BSR Double Purple fronts, Double Pink rears. Center shock was the gold kit spring with Losi 40 shock oil (shock bled out completely on this run due to a stripped lower cap). Front had the installed from SpeedMerchant spring. Caster was 4*, camber @ -1.5*. Motor was ThunderPower 13.5 paired to a Tekin RS Genl II.

Default by the way

Thanks John,

For letting me drive it in the first place and especially when you have no spare parts - far and away too kind.

I was gentle...


John: this work maybe?

You are most welcome Stan.

I went another direction and picked up a team prime unit. Apparently they are the hot ticket. Check your messages for the one dealer with inventory.

Oh hell yes! That thing was on rails, nice build John! Also nice driving Stan, even though I know you were babying it considering that's gotta be a 8 sec car easy!

Glad to hear other guys @ the track are on board with Pro10 now. I knew you guys wouldn't be disappointed with Pro10 once you got to try it!

Best lap was a 9.7. Trackstar 10.5 on the way. The 13.5 is really quick though.

Judging by the video the track will handle a boosted 10.5 nicely with the correct rollout. What rollout were you running on that setup in the video?

Hi Guys,

Cool video, and really nice diving Stan. Car prep looks great too, John.

I'll try to get another batch of the Roadkill 10's out to you soon. I just have to get Rev.8's & World GT4's out to customers, hobby shops, Distributors and overseas. The Carpet season starts very soon, and those guys need their cars.

I've got the World Champs in Florida and the IIC in Vegas the first 2 weeks in Oct. That's right around the corner.

Don't fret though, they'll be coming soon, and it should be as a full kit. The IRS 235mm axles are on their way.

Have a nice weekend.-Bruce
