Basically taking one of the heaviest parts of the car (the motor) and hanging it further behind the rear axle.
I wouldnt determine my gearing based off wanting to move more weight back, i can do that other ways. I would gear for the best combo of temps/speed/torque or acceleration.

Jconcepts makes some really nice spur gears, so if you dont want to run associated spurs or kimbrough ones, i recommend the jconcepts ones over the kyosho spurs but you will need to change slipper pads

I only run the jconcepts losi silent spurs with the losi garodiscs and wc slipper. Works like a charm. Used to have the AE pads but they wont work well with K vented plates.

You're right. I just looked at the "comment" section of the setup sheet.
(one of Jason Dias' setup sheets and I do appreciate him sharing his setup sheets with us)

Proper gearing and motor placement are not mutually exclusive. You can achieve whatever gear ratio you want with just about any motor position. They are apples and oranges. Man, I could go for an apple about now.

I use Kimbrough spur gears and standard AE pads and they work flawlessly.

Does anyone happen to know if Avid is working on a Triad Slipper clutch for the RB6?

On the hex ae pads the glaze is just there in a circle on the edges. The losi slipper pads are just that, a ring so I just like it better. Plus they are machined (and I am a sucker for cnced stuff) so a little quieter than the kimboroughs I had. For stock the AE goes a lot lower than the losi options though.

Yes, it's ready for release in the next week to 10 days. We have a new topshaft that has smaller flats to fit the existing Triad slipper kits. The adjustment nut changes to a 5.5mm hex M3 nut.

Hey guys, I have been running my rb6 for two weeks and let me tell you after driving a losi for months. I cant tell you how much better it is... I'm still playing with the setup on it but with the help of derek at kyosho usa it getting better... I'm currently running cody tuner hot rod hobbies setup. I was told that it works really good on clay tracks too.

I have a question about building the diff. it appears that the diff rings have a flat side and a rounded side. which side should touch the balls?

Hey guys those of you using RSx one10, do you use both 1mm and 2mm shin on the servo mounts (it measures 13.8mm so would merit both shims according to manual). Seems kinda tight though, servo won't lay flat. I think just 2mm is enough? Thanks,
