Looks good, but you need another source of voltage.

I'm not the most experienced 12th scale guy but it seems pretty great.

Very balanced, The front end is smooth as butter.

I'll be running it this weekend.

So has there been any release date for the US? I'm thinking about pre-orderering from RC Market, but would like to know how hard it's going to be to get parts in the US and for how long.

Nice of you to order a car from HK but be concerned about US parts availability. That's how US suppliers go out of businessTOP USA is taking pre orders also and ship US priority mail.

It wouldn't be an online order. TOP racing USA don't have a shopping cart. You just email [email protected] and request to pre-order a rebel12 or you can call them if you would prefer at 1 (650) 583-8898

Default Track Width

With the CRC tires did you have add many spacers to get to 172mm?
