I hope they are metal, not plastic.
Don't see them on the Speedmerchant website....

Same as to changing ride height in the front.

Which centre shock springs? Looking for them on the Speedmerchant website. Not found them yet. My bad...?

I prefer standard BSR tyres all around. They go with this car with no problems?

How do you change caster with this car? Maybe with the two screws on top of the front suspension and than move back or forth?
It is just like the Rev 8 12th scale in all respects, just bigger. It uses the new school front end. It may need a front end brace, but we don't know yet, this is prerelease. Axle height is the standard height adjuster inserts on an IRS 235mm axle set. Standard 10th pan tires and wheels fit

@Speedmerchant

Are there different/several ride height bearing holders for adjusting the ride heigth in the back in the kit?
If not, which part numbers on your website do I have to order?

Springs for the centre shocks? Please provide part numbers.

And as to spacers for adjusting ride height in the front?

Thanks. New and proprietary are good words to remember for this car.

Center Shock is right off the Rev 8. It uses the same diameter center spring as the old center shock.

New School Front End: http://www.teamspeedmerchant.com/sho...l/smr7020.html

This front end and chassis isn't going to flex much and has caster adjustment. Simple shim to ride height setting. Very cool! It's going to be on my car! I'm so pumped! There is good reason it is sold out.

If Team Tamale rear pod plates work for this car, they could be my first upgrade. I think I better run it out of the box for little while though.

My final thought for now. If the team/mfg. is good enough for Josh to win 5 events on his first drive for SpeedMerchant, his mad design skills and experience with Bruce's infinite know how and get it done attitude, this car cannot be a failure. It is truly a piece of rolling art and a true evolution in pan car design.

Judging by the stout design of the new school front end design I would wager that there will be no need for a brace up front unless you like to crash hard lol.

This thing looks "hopped up" out of the box, with the aluminum pod plates and the fact that they choose to design the rear pod to use an IRS axle makes it an instant winner in my book. An aluminum left pod plate and IRS axle are upgrades for most box stock pan cars.

I can't wait to see these bad boys hit the track, they should be rocket ships on rails!
