Hi Guys,

Formula Pro-10's will be available this weekend.

We got to test the car at the Nats last week. It came right from the Extreme magazine shoot, so it certainly wasn't set-up too well, but it got around alright. Corvette body, 4-cell, Novak 10.5 (slightly over geared).

2 videos:

The 1st is either Mike Dumas or Ray Darroch getting in a couple of laps...

I'm posting a 2nd video just to show how easy these cars are to drive. Bob Stellflue is a friend who works as a designer/engineer for Team Associated. He's an admitted "B-Mainer"....LOL. This video shows Bob's first couple of laps with a car he's never driven, using someone else’s controller. I think he does pretty well.

Have a great day.-Bruce

what sort of performance delta would an average racer (ie not Dumas or Lia) expect to see between the Formula 10 and Speed Spec II?

all "I" know for sure is that when I come back to racing, it's 100% speedmerchant for me.

I just noticed the speedspec 2 is listed on the speedmerchant website for $159.95. Good deal! I'm going to order one shortly.

The Speedspec is a Fiberglass chassis AND the Old Skool front end.

The Pro-10 is Carbon chassis and the Formula Front end.

I wouldnt say that ferrarimk...I know that there has been a pretty nice run on the DB10R which started shipping last week, Looks like a bunch of the GenX10 are going out this week, and obviously the I-Force has sold fairly. I dont know what the deal is with the Speedmerchant cars but I know that cars are selling. Im hoping Bruce will come on and explain what the dealio is with his cars.
