Speed Merchant Rev5 1/12th scale

Speed Merchant Rev5 1/12th scale

Current US National Champions Speed Merchant have announced the release of their latest 1/12th scale chassis, the Rev5, due for sale in the 2nd week of October. The car has a new rear pod design, that takes “easy access” to a new level, meaning you can literally drop in any motor, including brushless with a large pinion attached, with ease while the new pod plates have been machined from Delrin which offers huge weight savings. The car also feaures a new extensively tested “Formula” front end which has been created using linkages yet is 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.
