Speed Merchant has release information of there latest 1/12th scale car the Rev5. The Rev 5 will be available on-line the 2nd week in October. The new pod plates are actually machined Delrin, and they save a ton of weight over standard aluminum ones. Due to batteries getting heavier every season, and brushless motor/ESC combos weight and handling differential compared to their brushed counterparts, we decided to go with the Delrin plates to off-set some of the weight in the rear of the car. The biggest change on Rev5 is it new front end. The new link front end that was sturdy enough to hold up to the speeds and forces generated in today's cars. By supporting the top of the king pin with 2 balls, the upper link arm is very stiff and strong, and doesn't move during a crash. The picture gives a better idea on the front end.
