Thanks, I'm getting mine in a few days and want to be ready.
Do you have a pinion preference?
I have good luck with the Kimbrough gears.

Robinson Pro Aluminum pinions... and they're avalable in Purple.
haven't used the Kimbrough gears...but according to the manual you'll need a pinion that has a 4-5mm shank..

Got my first order in from Rainbow ten today. Ordered it just standard SAL and not EMS. Took about 10 days to get here. Not bad. Picked up a few spare parts, c-hubs, the other 2 smaller sway bars and the aluminum droop/height gauge(goes all the way up to 8 in droop and mm's-Bonus!) I also grabbed their chrome scale, pretty sweet looking. Only weights in grams, no biggie. So just like anything else you get a christmas I had to try it out. Grabbed a stock drive shaft, 10gm. And grabbed the carbon fiber shaft that I got also and....6gms. Almost half the weight. Can't wait to put it in. To bad the ends aren't purple . But I have a plan for that.

Thanks man!
Anyone have spare hop-ups, or want any?
If I have to order from Rainbow, I might as well order a few for other racers on this thread.
