What's the ETA on the new school front ends? So do they even make the rear Tamale pods anymore?

Default Front Brmper

What is everyone using for a front bumper on their Rev8?

I was searching on the SpeedMerchant website and couldn't find anything listed there.

Thanks.

Anyone using the Slapmaster thrust bearing set? Is it overkill? Its been a long while since I ran 12th scale. Should I use a small servo saver or is med ok?

Will I be able to order a Rev 8 with the new school front end? If not, when will they be back in stock?

I placed an order via PP on the 22nd. Haven't heard anything from them. No shipping info. I emailed them. No response yet. I wanted to try and take it out for a spin this up coming weekend. Doesn't look like that's happening. Bummer.

Well since last post I have been chatting with Bruce about my order and another order I placed. All I can say is what Ive heard is true about the guy. He is truly an upstanding guy and I am glad I made my choice to go SpeedMerchant. Just like working with Steve at R1 Wurks.

I agree, Bruce is great to talk to, when you can get hold of him...

I'd like to know when the full pro kits are available. I'm thinking I'll ditch my other 12th for the upcoming national series and run two Rev8s after getting mine going well since installing the new front end.

Got to take my rev8 to the track today. All I can say is WOW. I haven't ran 12th scale in two years. What I can remember it didn't handle this good back then. Mine is just box stock and was pretty cool. Oh and thanks RB for answering all my pesty pms.
