Cool RB Killer 10 .21

Does anybody have the specs (RPM & HP) on an RB K10. 21? If you own one I'd like to hear your pros & cons. Thankyou!

If I'm not mistaken that's an offroad engine.

Thanks guys very much for responding. The arm is flexing as you suspected. With us running 200mm touring and 8th scale I wasn't looking for arm flex. That's the story I am sticking with anyway. Now that I have that out of the way, I can get back to over-analyzing the car!!

Tires make the biggest difference with these cars, find the right ones (see what the fast guys are running,) and you'll be good to go.

The Texas Biggie was a Blast!!! Congrates to all the winners. I decided to attend this race 1 week prior, and for less then $300 bucks spent with IGT hobbies and help from all the Austin,Tx GT crew converted and old HotBodies D8 buggy into a GT racer.

I did fairly well at the race considering all, and enjoyed the whole weekend. Car will get better by next race. Did put down second fastest lap of the A-main.

But overall you don't have to spend a ton of $$$ to get into GT racing, its a simple and a ton of Fun to run. Just use the K.I.S.S. rules to make the class grow and encourage new racers. As in any form if racing Speed=$$$$$$$, but it doesn't have to be.

See you guys in SATX SWCS race#4!!!!! I will be ready!!! LOL

If I try to force it the front drive binds. I have all the correct parts for the conversion from GT2 to 1 but I need the chassis.

gt1 chassis IF146B
