What to do on the Top model? ^^

Like he said, you add or subtract shims to change the ride height.

I had a look and took some pics of one of the team guy's car at our national last weekend. Looks like a nice bit of kit, that pod is very nice! Good touch's here and there and seemed to go well on the track.

I have been very excited about the Rebel's release, looking throguh the website, RCMarket and the general pics, it looks like the front axles are simply hinge pins with E clip, a bit old skool isnt it? Are threaded axles available / coming / can use other brand?

Production car has some changes from the Vegas display model very slight but effective. Car was super easy to build none of the usual reaming, smoothing, fitting.

The front axle uses an e clip to retain the wheel. You can use a threaded front axle like the ones for 12L4 from Lunsford, CRC or SpeedMerchant. E clip front axles don't protrude nearly as far as nutted ones so they are less prone to catching a board. One reason to give them a try

The kit comes with one shock spring, one set of front springs and one set of side springs so you could consider the other choices for those. You might want some extra spacers for rear axle spacing and rear ride height adjustment. For spares it's hard to say since we don't know the car that well yet but the obvious choices would be front upper and lower arms, maybe some stuff that wears out like ball sockets etc

Some side links would be good to carry as spares. It's the only thing I've had break in the time I've had the car so far though, it's VERY strong

This car is amazing. So simple to build and goes together nice. The rear pod is super open so dropping in a motor is a breeze. I ran it out of the box with all the stock springs and it was dialed right away. It carries a lot of corner speed and its very easy to drive. Nice work TOP
