T.O.P. has not told us of any revision to the hub. That doesn't mean they aren't working on one though

Thanks John C. for providing us with a pdf copy of the Rebel 12 manual. If anyone wants a copy you can email us at topracingusa@yahoo.com . Of course now that John sent that to us the factory has put one up on the website at http://www.top-racing.jp It is listed in the "Downloads" section along with plenty of other valuable info, worth checking out

Hi

Regarding setup for asphalt , I dont know , but if you are running modified it will be a good idea to ordre the new rear pod. Also the new front axles are a good idea.
I think that Rcmarket earlier in this thread have told that all new cars will be delivered with the V2 arms. The car right out of the box is very good , but if I was you I would ordre the spring set , 3 front , 3 side and 3 main springs. I have boiled the side arms 3 minutes , since that I havn't snapped one. But still I would ordre a bag of side arms and a bag of steering knuckle.

Please dont hesitate to ask if anything more you need to know

It's a small Sav÷x , comming home from holiday within the next days , and I can tell you the number. The chassis have I drawn with some of my own ideas , first feeling was high rear traction , but have only made 4 practice-runs.

You'll most likely need M2.5 X 8mm socket cap or button head screws for your rear wheel/hub. The supplied M2.5 X 6mm were too short when using CRC wheels. This may not be the case for other wheels. I also discovered that generic M2.5 X 8mm (metric) socket cap and/or button head screws wouldn't thread into the hubs. The LHS ordered up some special TOP screws for me to try out. I'm hoping this works so I can get my rear wheels attached and my car on the track.

Shims, spacers, tuning springs (already mentioned below), plastic pieces (arms, etc) are basically it. Going to the CRC Gen-XL left hub is also recommended. You'll need axle spacers to achieve the correct width.

odpurple - Do you guys have the option TOP 3.2mm tie-rod wrench in stock? I guess I can always file down a 3mm wrench to fit to size but would prefer to have the right tool for the job.

John- the screws supplied in the kit for the rear tires fit my crc rims. Look me up this weekend. I might have an extra wrench for the rods.

Thanks Steve!

I see that kit packaged three different lengths for button head screws in the M2.5 size. It's possible that I'm trying to use the 4mm instead of the 6mm to attach my wheels. I'll measure with my digital calipers when I get home tonight. This would also mean that I've made a mistake during the build and now have the 6mm screws where the 4mm should be. I need to cut down on the beer intake during my builds

I'll see you this Saturday and hopefully on Thursday nights at MRH. The wrench would be awesome if you have one. 3.2mm tie-rods

Hi John, We have the 3.2mm turnbuckle wrench in stock. Personally, I like to replace the kit turnbuckles with Lunsford ones, the 3.6mm (PT-TW01RD)wrench fits those.

I don't know why the generic screws you tried didn't fit, unless they are not 2.5mm x .45mm metric screws. I use non-stock cap head screws in a few places on the car and they work fine. I like to use them for the wheel screws among others since they use a 2mm wrench and I can get them in silver which is more visible on black wheels

I also had this issue after a couple rear tire changes... it is indeed just a little too short... getting a longer one helps and continues to work after many installations.
