You should save a few bucks with the old skool. The other kit and parts should be up shortly. Sorry no concrete info for you on the pricing.

Default Rev 4 to Rev 5

What components are necessary to mod my rev 4 rear to a rev 5?
rear L/R PODS, upper and lower POD decks, and rear brace?

thanks

We'll have parts soon in the Brood shop, I need to get Bruce an order... the only thing for parts most people will need are teflon bushings and front knuckles, most other parts are still interchangeable unless you need to do something like replace the chassis or pod.

Also I got a hold of a Slapmaster bumper for my Rev5 this weekend at the NWIC Race #2 at Timezone Raceway. Requires a very minor adjustment but otherwise it's a perfect fit, so there is a bumper available for us Rev5 fans to help protect the front end.

Just go by the Front end manual. Just do not polish the brass balls. I have also been trying the middle hole for caster for 19t and it felt better. Make sure the rear pod is smooth as glass too. Use Speedmerchant Green Spooge for the kingpin lube.

Aside from the front end setings (obviously), how well do the spring oil and tube lube setings transfer from a Rev 5 to a 4.5? For example if a rev 5 is hooked up will it equate to a hooked up 4.5 with the same set up?
