Roche Rapide P10 1/10th 200mm pan car kit

Roche Rapide P10 1/10th 200mm pan car kit

Roche have introduced the Rapide P10 1/10th scale 200mm pan car for World GT and narrow Pro10 classes. The car is based on a 2.5mm high-quality carbon fibre chassis and it features a widely adjustable front suspension, made by Xenon Racing, that allows for an adjustable wheelbase using the front lower suspension block and the graphite front plate. The reactive castor is adjustable as are the usual suspects such as toe, castor and camber. Unique with the P10, which is based off of the smaller P12 1/12th scale car, is a ball-raced rail-type steering system that makes for a more proportional and smooth steering feeling while offering quick steering Ackermann adjustments. The backbone of the chassis is a red anodised aluminium rear chassis brace as well as the battery and shock mount for the micro centre shock. In the rear the P10 features aluminium pod parts as well as aluminium mounting brackets for the rear axle that is height adjustable using spacers. The rear axle itself is made from high-quality graphite and it features a thrust race equipped ball differential and a 16-ball Xenon 64dp 93T spur gear. The kit is available for pre-order now and should hit stores very soon with a 235mm version being planned for the near future.
