Gotcha, Im just waiting for gas season to end here so I can carve some carpet with my Rev 4.5

Word of advice:
The Rev 4.5 is a great car. I you plan on driving it with any regularity?
Order what you think you'll need for half your season. I say that because, I ordered enough parts for a whole season and I still have 75% of what I ordered!

hobbyetc.com is usually a great place to find speedmerchant stuff. Just give them a call, the site is a little hard to navagate.

PS... wait till you guys get your paws on the new front end! Worth its weight in gold.

teambrood.com also carries speedmerchant parts. Our inventory is live, so you can check the site and see what we really have in stock - our parts supply is starting to dwindle though, awaiting a fresh order from Bruce in a week or so.
