Don't you trying to kill a fly with a naval cannon?

It's weird you 'stretched' 10.0.0.x network across two physical subnets.
I'd stay away from such weird configs. You can split 10.0.0.x into
two smallish 4-ip nets.

But if you did succeed in making adjacent hosts pinging themselves, then

ip r a 0/0 via

ip r a 0/0 via

ip r a via
ip r a 0/0 via

will make routing work.
