I love mine (all of them), but the Siren of another is calling... I have 6 right now and a fair amount of parts... but I am going to fish in another lake. Will be up soon in the classifieds.

When I used to drive the rebel, the front end was also not the part I loved.
A friend of mine made a Carbon plate for me, so I could use Xenon front parts and in the back the original parts.
With that, more or less, you could also change the model.
I am still racing so I bought me a Roche P12 and a black Art Chassis. These times I need to put 30 Gramms of weight in the car, using a Spool axle.

There are parts available. I will have kits and parts very soon.

Just bought the Rebel 12, where can I get some spare parts from?
Does anyone have a good set up for CRC High bite carpet?
Will any other MFG parts fit, such as CRC, A&E, Roche ?

Please PM me and Thanks for the help.

I use the newest setup from petit but with the spool instead of a rear diff.

Pretty sure on one of my Rebels I've got AE R5 steering knuckles, might have had to use the axles as well. Oh had mine for a year and only broken one set of arms and knuckles... I hit a brick at almost full tilt.

racenut123 you sold it to my brother, I also just got one about 3 weeks ago.

Question, why did TOP Rebel stop building cars?
Such a good car and easy to set up and it handles great. Only raced two weekends and almost as fast as some of the top guys in Denver. I have been out of 1/12 for about 5 years and did not do good with a 2012 Xray.
Another question for you is the Kyosho Plasma RA the same front end?

Any help would be great

TOP stopped producing these I suppose because they were not making money. I know the US Distributor who is a super cool dude.But I have no clue if he is even bringing stuff in any longer. The Rebel was ahead of its time in so many ways. Thats why its still relevant. As far as the plasma, Iwould not have a clue. I loved this platform. Made me look better then I was.....
