i need to look again, i avoided these for lack of a servo saver. thanks for the info. they seem to have really good performance/$ ratio.

Friend of mine was using a mini Savox in his yok R12 and is using a standard servo save. (sorry he can't remember if it is a Ko or futaba saver but he sure it is just a normal off the shelf item). I have one (std size) in my 1/5 bike and it seems to works very well and the price is good too.

I need a pre Christmas Rebel fix Larry have you been driving the car? E.J. was thrashing to get his finished last night but it's hard to work on a car with a line of people waiting to fondle it.

Ya, TOP USA told my hobby shop it'll be stateside on the 3rd, just wanted to see if we had anymore updates and if that date is still good. I'm not in as much of a hurry now since the only race we have in january is on the 2nd

So is there a manual available yet or do I have to wait until someone scans it?
I already have the kit, but a manual could give me some answers since Im new to 12th scale racing...

What are you struggling with ? I've got one built up with a lot of pictures along the way (no manual in the pre production kits)

Well, Im not sure with the spacer on the rear axle and I hope to find some useful setup informations as well as a guide for the tires. Something about their dimensions and maybe which companys tires might fit.
How to tweak the car...
And some things I cant remember know

If you mean the spacers for width, then the same width spacers each side will give a centered axle (just varies the track width)

CRC and Jaco type wheels both fit, 44mm rear and 42mm front without any additional changes to ride height will have you around 3.5-4mm ride height all round.

Tweaking the car is the same as any other, side springs just about touching, then make sure the fronts lift at the same time.

Let me know when you remember the other stuff
