We will be running Pro 10 Stock: 10.5 Open timing, Open ESC, Open Tire, Open body.

I want mine to show up in a brown paper box labeled TOP SECRET with hazard warning labels all over it. It should also have a surgeon general sticker for heart rate, blood pressure and pucker factor.
@racer034life, It would be great to see this class gain traction! let us know if you get anywhere with that request...seriously.
Like John said were going for the Pro10 stock class, here are the rules as the dutch run them:
any 10.5T
open ESC, open timing
any 2S lipo
235mm chassis
non-nitro 235mm bodies
1150 gram min weight
open tire
*dutch rules with the exception of only 235mm chassis, not 200mm chassis.



@John, really a brown paper box labeled top secret... I'm shaking my head while laughing but I won't lie it would be cool, hang it on the wall and show your friends cool. I'd be as excited as you if I had gotten my hands on a prerelease Roadkill10 too.

Do you by chance know if two 1 cells side by side would fit in the battery space on the Roadkill 10?

It will be nice to find out how these work on the track. Will you be running them straight out of the package or trued at all?

Yes, They would be longer than a square pack, but they will fit.

No truing needed. They come ready to run. I don't want to buzz them without an initial opinion. It would be good to get a few packs on them doing just simple rotation to get an honest wear evaluation. I've never been a huge fan of shaving for performance, but it does work and it does happen. I just don't think it's worth it unless you are at a major event.

Good to know thanks yet again!

That's a good plan. I also run straight out of the package and I don't own a truer so no temptation there.

Nice set of rules there...that should serve us just fine.

I decided it would be in my best interest to get the brick (square) packs. Hobbyking has them now, so I picked up a couple of the 90C 6200mAh batts. Bench racing is freakin expensive!

I hadn't realized the prices on SMC were so awesome now. Very good to know. They were my lipo of choice 7 or 8 years ago when this was all new.

I tried something years ago but it was a cluster**** but if I tried again, itd be much less formal and would need the great minds and guys like you and MarkA and the "old guard" (no offense intended) to help out. Having a ]an car "woodstock" type event would be fun but I would mostly work on the administration side but not be the man in charge

+1 on the SMC packs. I just found out about them a week ago and from what I've gathered so far they are excellent quality with out the marketing hype. Any way they will be the next packs I try out. I think I'll have to try the brick packs also when I'm able to pick up a Roadkill 10. Both my L2 and Bolink are limited to saddle configuration...

Need to find a central venue with a good track and lots of hotels. Leisure Hours in Joliet would be a very good candidate.

Probably would have worked out better had you attended your own event!!!!! I am still racing a 10L2 some guy bought and prepped for that race, and must add winning with it. I should have pictures of the track we race on to post shortly.

Thats why I said that if somebody else would be ok with being the spearhead, I would have no problem being part of the process BIGBULL. I got myself in way over my head before and learned my lesson for sure
