One quick question when you received your Rebel did it come with instructions? I'm thinking they may be waiting on the printers?
I believe the instructions are being printed up yes

Yeah, I'm wondering if the motor moved in a crash.

Those look like they may break. I hope they have aluminum option parts for that.

Interesting design on using the two screws to hold the motor in. I wonder just how rugged that's going to be.b The shim idea for adjusting ride height looks pretty cool, and may be easier to get set than those dang offset inserts that are always too loose or too tight.

Chris dono- does it look like you can use up tires all the way if you so choose, I.E. can you set the ride height low enough to run down to the rim?Does it look like you can run the rear axle narrow enough to run 0 offset wheels such as CRC?
Does the car use standard pan car bearing sizes front and rear, 1/8th and 1/4th, or is it metric, standard spurs fit? THANKS!!

That's a lot of questions there Jeff!

My concern is if the rear pod can withstand a hard hit?

I'll check, but it looks like you can get low enough with the rears

There's a bunch of shims in the box to set the rear axle width, so I'd imagine you can use CRC wheels with no offset, but again I'll double check that for you

Standard bearings (flanged, non flanged, fronts are the same fitting as Jaco wheels take, rather than crc)

The spur in the box is a kimborough item, so they will all fit fine.
