I'm all fired up about a 235mm pan car how about you?

They went all HUDY/Xray on the Images there! That is still a pretty nice looking car.

Glad I didn't buy any other conversion car. Definitely going in the shopping cart this year. Love my Rev8.

John, can you fix the thread title? I understand how excited you must have been while typing it!

Well, tired anyway. I can hit the post title, but not the thread name.

You could also start a new thread and re-direct everybody to it.

Or don't worry about it, since everyone that is interested will most likely visit here anyway, regardless of the title.

I didn't even notice the title being off lol, my brain knew what it said.

This looks to be a very well thought out chassis. I'm glad to to see a link car in 235mm and I like this feature: "allowing the use of every 7.4 battery type available".

All in all this car should do it's part in what I see as the hope full revival of the Pro10 235mm class! This one is definitely going on my Pro10 wishlist, don't tell my wife lol. JK.

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

I moved this and the inserted quote over to the other thread found at:
