Does anyone make the +13 chassis for a small fee? I know there was a guy who made the +8 for AE before they were released (who did a great job).

All new parts are numbered UM700 to UM729. (Body not included)

Depending on what your set up is (mid ship or rear mount) you can take out some parts.

I am not going down to the nuts and bolts.

Yeah, I knew that much.

I just thought you already had the list on hand as you had priced everything already.

I may look into it later.

Here is the list I came up with. It is quite long.

Basically every part number from UM700-UM728 is required for rear motor RB6 except...

UM720
UM722 - UM726

These parts are for the mid-motor and would replace the following rear motor specific parts if you wanted a mid-motor car instead....

UM705
UM706
UM708

I have no idea on prices. I am not going to look that part up.

The body is UMB03 and the wing is UM727. The decals if you care are UMD02. The part number UM719 is the 1 piece shock caps. They are not needed really, but would be required to have a "complete" RB6

You will also need UM561. These are the rear outer hinge pins for the RB6 and are from the RT5/SC-R.

ohh.. the rb6 kit comes with the white slipper sheet (UM516) instead of the Red one (UM571)

And not the vented slipper disk too.

Well, you don't "need" the one piece alu shock cap. If you're converting an RB5 you can run the shocks as-is. This might be a good place to save a few bucks as alu parts are usually pricey.

No. My best guess is that guys run long antenna tubes so they can see their cars better when they're either far away, behind something, or in a ditch and can't be seen from the drivers' stand. That's why I do it, anyway.
