Default Speedmerchant Roadkill 10 235mm Pro10 Pancar

I took Howard's advice. Starting over:

See the advanced pictures in the News section of the team website.

I am waiting patiently for the pre-order link to be posted. I've sent off a note to ask since we were sorta promised it would be up late last week.

He's not kidding Bruce...John's waiting to click the "PreOrder" button as soon as his screen refreshes.

I had no doubt that the race before the race is on! Time for bench racing!

I ordered V3.0 10.5R with timing adjust from Speedpassion, got the +20 board for it, and the Reventon Pro 1.1 ESC with timing boost and turbo. Cheap thrill combo from Speedpower. It'll be fun trying to get the boost to ramp properly and for the turbo to kick in. We might be running some really low roll outs just to get the revs up enough to see turbo. I know what I want for indoor carpet tires, just waiting for Protoform to show their hand on the bodies they might have coming out.

This was posted in the Pro10 235mm thread on the 7th, just thought it'd be good to add this info to the dedicated Roadkill 10 thread. Hopefully Bruce is able to get these kits put together but we all know how things go sometimes... so patience is the virtue here lol. I'm just excited for this car because it looks to be very well designed and will hopefully help Pro10 get back on it's feet!

On the shelf just to my left of my desk, I have my original RoadKill 10. It won the 2000 ROAR Carpet Nats with myself driving, I then loaned it out to Jake Pritchard. He won the Aspahalt Nats in Vegas (might have been a NORCA Race), and then from there it went to Mark Strasnick who won the 2004 ROAR Asphalt Nats in Oregon I think. I'm pretty sure that was the last time ROAR ran a 10th pan class at a Nats.

I thought mine might have been the last one, I'm glad to see yours.

Nice job changing it over to LiPo. Plenty of room to work with on that chassis. LOL.

I've got a lot of e-mails about the new RoadKill 10.

I'll be doing a pre-order by the end of this week for those of you interested. They should ship within 2 weeks. I still have to work up parts #'s and get in touch with Dave Irrgang about some more 235mm axles.

I'll have more information on my "News" section later this week.

Have a great day.-Bruce

The P905B is great for indoor carpet from my experience, I have 5 spares hanging on my wall... yes I'm a lexan whore. As soon as I use one it will be replaced.

I second the need for another current production 235mm body, say the Nissan P35.

Thanks for moving that one John (post #13), I didn't spot the new thread lol. I was wondering why noone was talking about the Roadkill 10, especially with the suspense of preorder.
