Both and others. I have a quite a few different cars.

I've been running my old CRC whilst I get my Rev8 sorted.

Scroll down to the bottom.

The above link to this store doesn't ship internationally, but now you know the part numbers. Start researching!

Hi Guys,

I hope everyone had a great 4th weekend.

All the New Schools (and the accompanying orders), start shipping this morning in the order they were received.

The new Rear Pods are on their way. Full Rev.8 Pros shouldn't be too far behind.

Take care.-Bruce

Cool

RedBull Summer Edition from 7-11 is quite tasty

The R1 powered Rev8 with New School FE was fairly epic this past Sun, first club race of the summer in 1/12



I picked up the SquareRC setup wheels at ProShopFutaba in Japan
The front kit is handy, rears may a bit of overkill, but who am I to judge when we live in a world of $1000+ sedans

ProShop are very easy to deal with thru emails

Mod question with this car: do you miss the reactive caster on the new school front, or does it get along fine without it? I've looked at as many pictures as I can, and I don't detect any offset front ride height shimming, so I'm thinking it's a non-factor in setups.

Obviously, I'm aware of Josh's success at the Mile High race, so it clearly works in good hands.

Haven't run mod yet with the rev8
But I've never had a reactive front end carry this much corner pace

Got my new school front end today and installed. Cant wait to try this weekend. Camber is so easy to adjust now. Got the bag of 7 sizes of springs and nothing was labeled. So thickest is 0.17?
