Hi Guys,


I got around to updating my "News" section, with some info, and a link to some pics of the new car.

Have a great weekend.-Bruce

Im looking at a used 4.0 and a used 4.5,. would I be able to run the new rear pod, or atleast the new pod plates on either of these models?

12thScaleCrazy 09-22-2007 05:50 PM

I saw one a couple of weeks ago, and the rear pod plates had the same bottom holes as my Rev. 4. I think we just have to get the new top and back plates to convert over.

That's just wrong:D Show us the goodies......

"The Goodies"

The front end should drop in to the rev4. The hole pattern on the front end did not change. Bruce will be offering the front end for other cars as well. The main difference is that some of the holes where an old skool or ae front end goes will vary between cars.

got mine today...thanks Bruce!!! I am hoping to have it done before Vegas, but i think the trusty 4.5 is what I will be running come Wednesday....

all i can say is that the front end is about the coolest thing since sliced bread....i can't wait to give it a try. I honestly was leary of the delrin pods, but with the top and back brace they seem extremely strong and it does save tons of weight!!!

top notch Bruce!!!

flameoutgarrett 09-22-2007 07:57 PM

man im done building mine already...lol

well i put a rough build on it, i will let bruce make it all right...ie camber and what not, but i got all my electronics and everything in there...she is almost ready to roll! just gotta set the servo

Johnny Carey 09-22-2007 08:05 PM

Got mine today aswell. Couldnt build it as I was getting my last practice in before Vegas. Looks good in the package and will perform even better on the track. Cant wait for Vegas.
