I've never broken one, are they tightened down or free?

They are as free as I can make them. Pretty sure it's me not being a good driver. I have seen a few post about boiling them to make the links softer. I have broken about 4 or 5 in a half year.

On a side not I just put on the digitydesign battery holder. What a nice piece!

The side links are a weak spot. I broke some, but it was a freak accident. From reading this thread, it seems common. I have yet to boil some, but that is what I plan on trying. And it's not that you are a bad driver, the boards are too hard.

I've been pretty lucky so far with my links as well. I've done three practice days as well as a full race days. The car has taken several hits. The car is used so I'm sure they've been put to the test previous to me driving it.

I guess one trick is to tighten them down just enough to eliminate any play while still allowing for some free movement.

So far I'm really liking this kit, just wish more guys were running them and also wish parts would be easier to find.

Hello all,
I am looking to run the Rebel 12 with a 13.5 on a smooth asphalt track outdoors this summer and I am looking for a good setup to start with. I have looked through this thread and on racerlog but with no success. Does anyone have a setup they can share or a link to a setup? Thank you!

Thanks! I'll bookmark your site for future orders.

Can you tell me if the rear axle bearing carriers are the same for the Rebel 10 AND the Rebel 12? I found some on your site in the Rebel 10 parts listings but not for the Rebel 12.

I've now practiced 4 times with this car and yesterday was only my second race day with it. I'm an oval guy and I never thought I would've grown so confortable so quickly with a 1/12 on-road car. The thing was FLYING!!!!

Most parts are interchangeable between the rebel 10 and 12. Yes the bearing carriers are the same.

If anyone is looking for a Rebel 12 or knows someone who might be interested, please take a look at the one I have for sale.
TOP Rebel 12 for sale/trade
Have to shrink my collection and have no spare parts for the TOP so it only makes sense to sell it first.
Thanks All !

I was wondering if someone who has one of these could give me the bottom screw hole measurements of the rear pod. Center to center of the screw holes for the motor aluminum side plates front to back and center to center from left to right between the pod plates. Thanks in advance.

Hey Bubby! I'm trying to see if I can get this pod to work on a different car, I just really like the design of it with the height adjustment. Could you get those dimensions for me? Hope all is well up north.

Oops! just saw this. While many parts are the same on the R12 and R10, the rear axle bearing blocks are not.

1/12th takes: Bearing Carrier A #PC-RMAS05

1/10th uses: Bearing Carrier B #PC-RMAS07

I'll try to watch this thread in the future if anyone has questions about the car, options, availability etc.
