i will say this i have run every 1/12 car out except a yokomo (cant afford that one haha) and i have won races with all kinds of cars but i could never win that one race i wanted a national .

well how about this i tryed a REBEL four days before the first round started and never gave it back this car is the real deal the designer really knew what he was doing with this car it steers but holds rear grip .

i will post a setup if someone shows me where to get a blank set up sheet from and i will put everything i ran but gearing (just for you mike) people would laugh at how low i was geared compared to everyone else

The chassis is certainly the real deal and has a bit of 1/12 magic inside. Not exactly sure why but that car is awesome in 17.5 and 13.5. The FF design lab has drawn up the car and most of changes to normal 1/12 ride are pretty minor and car has some unusual details...must just be the combination of the small tweaks that make it work.

I think a podium finisher was running one in mod also....perhaps Speedmerchant just happened to make a red car, with cell cutouts, tranverse battery, and molded plastic front bumper...just saying...

Mark why did you have to run that car in 13.5 in last qualifier? I was enjoying out qualifying you up until that point....I tapped out in Q4 so I managed to blow any slim shot at p10 in the a-final anyway!

Adding to the list of the Rebel 12's recent accolades, I was able to DQ the 17.5 class this past weekend and bring home the hotlap of said D main (although I only managed to finish 2nd)

You looked good out there Ninja.Car was going where you were putting it...and it did not seem to loose any traction or speed in the twisties.

Makes me want to pick up 1/12 again next year (I know what car I will be getting ) You guys are having too much fun and I want in.

The big question is....Will Alex be getting his car back?
I am thinking...no.

Alright, e-mailed my setup sheet to Hanulec. When he has time he'll post a link to it here as the .PDF was too large, and I didn't feel like optimizing or compressing it.

Default 2013 ROAR NATS setup - T.O.P Rebel 1/12

See attached.

If you watch the video of my car in A3 it's very quick to rotate on exit, but not loose at all. Tons of fun to drive.

Jon's car was very fast @ Nats... Definitely worth trying out his setup.

Jon... Just to clarify, those tire diameters are backwards right?
