Chassis: SpeedMerchant Roadkill 10
Tires: Double Purple Front, Double Pink Rear 61mm or 2.4 inch OD UNCUT
Ride Height: 8mm (please don't laugh)
Body: Protoform P905b, no side air dams
Bumper: Parma Ultimate cut to fit the P905b body
Center shock: gold spring (5 lb) with 40 wt Losi Silicon, 2 hole piston
Rear droop: 2mm
Pod sag: less than 1mm
Front droop: .5mm
Spur: 75 tooth 48P
Pinion: 19 tooth 48P
Rollout: 48.5
Caster: 4*
Camber: -.5*
Front spring: .20
Battery: Turnigy 6400mAh Ultimate
ESC: Tekin RS Gen 2
Radio: KO Eurus w/210S receiver
Servo: JR3650 mounted with no spacers with screws in top holes of the servo mount.

2 1/4" Turnbuckles are mounted to the front of the Kimbrough medium servo saver. The ballstuds are on the inner holes of the servo saver arm. Turnbuckles are swept back from inside to outside, about 1cm difference. The turnbuckles are flat went viewing from the front. No noticeable bump steer.

All weight is under the center line of the rear axle visually.
The only thing above the tire tops are the rear body posts.
Car does not over or under steer at this time.
Corner rotation is perfect.
Diff will bark a little in tight corners when trying to rapidly accelerate.

Complaints: none
Issues: More advanced driver states steering balance between into and out of corners could be better. Right it's better in than out. Might need a stiffer front spring or ackerman change. This would lead to perfection.
Solution: Just drive it and drive it a lot.

The chassis is just sick, period.

If you can't get this thing around the track like a rockstar, just sell your stuff - this hobby isn't for you.

I finished and ran my RK10 today . This bring back a lot of great memories of racing Pro 10 at SoCal R/C raceway (RIP). It definitely is fast with a 2S and 17.5. Stilling need to dial it in. It should be a 8.8 sec car when dialed. In the hands my buddy Ray he did a 9.2 fast lap. Will post my set-up when I get tuned just right. People eye brows were raised seeing this car run and I know Ray will be buying one when they are available again. I really think we will be getting a class started at TQ. Here is some pics:

It felt great but still need to dial it in. I'm running spec tires, .017 front springs, red center spring, 40wt. oil, kit rear side springs, shurr speed 17.5 with a rollout 79.64mm.
It's fast on the straight but a little slow in the in-field. I think if go down on the timing is could get it where I want. I also need to make some adjustments to the esc and add drag break. Over all I am very happy with it.

The body is a Hot Bodies Toyota GT1.
