Will there be a price increase now that it includes the axles?

Waiting for this kit to go on sale again

The price will reflect the fact that the kit includes an axle, yes.

I had to pick up the axle and diff kit, turnbuckles, ball cups and a spur. I would guess the full kit will end up near $300 retail. It should be back up in the next couple days.

I'm getting really comfy with the car! I've dropped a whole second off my original lap times. Starting to really pick up speed in the twisty bits and am learning from the expert racers what I'm doing wrong. Mostly not enough throttle, not soon enough on the throttle or too jerky on the throttle and steering. Smooth is fast for sure!

Any more success stories out there? I know thee are 10 of us with these beasts, lets make some noise!

Had to put RK10 build on hold for awhile, been working on my 12th scale and VTA. Got the rear axle and diff, and servo in, mounted a 17t motor Need to get a battery for my receiver and esc placement. And decide which body to use.

Still no RK10 for sale. I guess I should look for some other chassis out there.

Thanks for being patient.

After the Worlds & Vegas, they will be a standard stock item and not only a limited run chassis.

Only 10...the first batch took just over 2 days to sell out.

Good luck!

Have a great weekend.-Bruce

Picked up more Roadkill last night. I needed (may need) spares. Pro 10 for life.

We are almost ready to race. Just another racer and some spare parts. We are running 235mm Pro 10 open motor, tire and ESC with 2S batteries. This chassis is amazing and rugged to date. I would recommend trying this car to anyone. I've settled in with a 10.5 @ 45mm rollout. A 13.5 may actually be a better choice, but I'm used to the 10.5 now. We should be racing in the next couple weeks as the locals come back indoor.

SpeedMerchant Roadkill 10



Click the pic.

I've got a second and third on the way. This car could be driven with any size motor at any skill level and be fun! Seriously, a 21.5 blinky beginner class to 3.5 mod is possible. One chassis to grow with your skill level.

Default whoop

Bam!! Ordered two of these suckas.

Which bodies should I buy?

Which tires for asphalt and which for carpet?

Going to run 2s and 17.5 (maybe 13.5 too) for now because I don't want to buy more motors.
