Is there any disadvantage to mounting the servo flat in this car? I've got mine mounted on the angled mounts at the moment, and I'm not happy with the steering arm angles. If I use the inner holes on the servo saver to improve the angles, there isn't very much steering lock.

Angled servos where designed for use in pan cars to minimize bump steer. I run my servo flat in my TOP WGT Rebel. I find that the steering is a little more aggressive and if you make sure that your steering links are level with the chassis plate when viewing from the front of the car, then you do not get too much bump steer although you will get more than if the servo was angled. To get the steering links level you need to space the ball up on the steering blocks.

Thanks Crashby, I'll have a go at running mine level and shim the balls to suit.

Anybody converted their Rebel 10's to the new WGT-R class yet? Any issues with ride heights and shimming? I'm going to try it when I get my rubber tires next week.

Does anyone still run these with any success against the newer Xrays, CRCs etc?

Between 10-15 racers run 17.5 foam pan car down here in FL on carpet. You'll see mostly CRC's but there area a couple of racers who run older cars "BMI Copperhead" like myself and very with them

Thanks, I used to run a BMI many years ago back in the UK on carpet. Here in Aus we run on asphalt on foams, 2s battery, 13.5 blinky mode. There are a few Xrays but I don't like to follow the crowd too much as it may as well be one make racing. Variety is the spice of life after all.

The Rebel 10 should work great for that formula. It comes with provision to run a 2S stick longitudinally or 1S either way. Still very competitive!

I have a new Rebel 10 and I am having trouble getting the ride height down at the rear with new foams on, I don't like truing 5/6mm of good foams just to get to ride height. I am looking for around 5/6mm ride height with 60mm new foams. Will the bearing carriers A, part #PC-RMAS05 fit the Rebel 10 and will they raise the axle thus reducing ride height? Thanks

A blocks will actually require the use of even smaller tires. Use the B blocks and turn them upside down, as we do on our rubber tire F1 cars
