Cannot complain for a car I have really only run 2 full days, and with some pretty major setup changes.

Track looks tailor maid for an RB6 incredibly tight. RB6 can power through it with the on-power steering it has.

Are you looking at it on your phone? If so you need to view it in the Adobe Acrobat app.

Use longer ball studs on your caster blocks, and rear bulkheads. Other then that you should be good to go. Also might be wise to pick up a set of Gold springs as the reds are too stiff for the car. You can make them work if your track isn't too bumpy, but if not the back of the car will bounce around a lot and be harder to control then need be.
