If you guys come to europe on vacation, bring your Pro10's with you
But do it when the Benelux race is here
Pro10 stock boosted and Pro10 mod is present then.
The track is the Baanbrekers at Rucphen

Not going to Wisconsin anytime soon, I'd be fish out of water there and probably freeze to death. Would be interesting, though.

If you go to the "North American Regional Forums" to "Hawaii RC" to "Race World Hawaii-Electric On Road" thread to page 108 there are recent videos of our race and track. Its a bank tri-oval with infield. Sorry don't know how to do the address thing yet.

Where did you all buy your Roadkill 10s from? I don't see it on the SM website.

The link on the news section that now shows Sold Out.

I was lucky enough to be number 1 of the first 10 production units. Those have now been shipped, several have been built and are running. Full production will follow the Rev 8 Pro and WGT4 production runs as they are needed for upcoming national events and have priority. Only so much SpeedMerchant can do.

Update: it is entirely possible to bend the camber turnbuckle. It is also entirely possible that this car is a freak and just keeps working with a bent axle. I managed to get camber and caster back to normal and massaged the axle back to straight. Still not sure where it happened. I hate plow disks and pipes!

Spare axles are on the way along with a pair of yet to be listed turnbuckles thanks to SpeedMerchant.

You're going to want to get 18mm Ti turnbuckles. Bending the stock ones is an issue that people have been having with the stock front end.

The Lundsford ones are 3mm and work great. I have also seen the Arrowmax ones work quite well and I believe they are 3mm as well. I know Josh Cryul runes the AE blue ones and cuts them down.

3racing has also good turnbuckles.
I use them for steering and camber with great results.

Regards Roy

I have TI turnbuckles coming now, I went with Lunsford. Good excuse for more front tires, bearings for front and rear, a new pit mat and some center shock rebuild parts.

Bruce has congratulated me on being the first person to report bending that tiny little turnbuckle. And, I still don't know how I did it.

I searched the whole Rev 8 thread from the new school front end intro to the end and never found that info on bent camber turnbuckles. Then I went back to the beginning of the thread and still didn't find any info for either front end. I did see in pictures of Josh's car that he is using AE turnbuckles throughout. I should have known the originals were just stainless. The size you recommended was right also for anyone looking to upgrade. I didn't think a part that small could bend, but I have proven Murphy's law still stands. I hope to NOT find the next weakest link in the chassis.
