Thank you everyone for being so patient. We want to release the best possible kit we can.

Thanks,

Thanks for the update! Better to say it us running a little later than expected than to leave us in the dark! Can't wait to get my 2 kits right after Christmas!

Yeah, thanks for the update.
Any chance, that the manual can be downloaded anywhere?

E.J. will the Rebel kits be available from the TOP USA web store or would it be best to e-mail TOP USA direct?
I think Christmas will be coming twice this year.

What size servos can be used in the rebel? Mini or standard size?

I'm using a Futaba 9650, although a 9602 would fit fine too (both mini)

Thanks for the info.

The KO is pretty expensive, where else the Futaba reasonable priced.

Will a standrad size servo work at all?

I'd stay away from standard size, you don't need the torque it has and it would take up a lot of real estate and there is already limited room for electronics on a 1/12 scale.

Savox makes a nice micro with metal gears for about $65, 1257mg if I recall

the Savox 1257 and 1357 are both min sized and about 49.99 from the online retailers. I have the 1357 in my cars and have been very happy with it.

It sucks that the kit is coming out so late. I needed it for the Birds and have never run 1/12th before so i needed wheel time. I picked up a REV6 and will pass on the Rebel now. I was one the waiting list for 2.

My savox uses futaba, but the only one I have right now is a touring car servo, no 1/12 scale yet
