So true. I've had a half-finished SVR on my shelf for months and the manual and packaging were the best I've ever seen. I hear the car drives really well too. These are both very good, premium kits. As Brandon said, it really comes down to whether you want to run something that more guys at your track are likely to be running or that your LHS may stock parts for. Or maybe you'd rather be a little different than everyone else. Both good choices.

RB6 is the best buggy I've ever driven though. I highly recommend it.

Those who have switched from a 22 to an rb6, what would you say the different handling characteristics would be?
Thanks.

What is the part number for the front hinge pin brace? I guess I bent mine somehow?

I have a .5mm shim in front, and 1.5 in the back, and it's perfect. The arm is shimmed forward, and just barely no contact with the chassis.
I ran 1/1 tonight and it felt really good. I feel like moving the arm back gives the rear end more grip since the shock is moving up and down easier vs at an angle. Hard to explain, but its almost like moving the shock inside on the tower, except forward.

Yeah but that doesn't change the suspension pivot and shocks like the caster width adjustment.

I also bent one last night after some contact during a race. I was really surprised it was bent because the contact wasn't significant. I have heard of a couple others at my track also bending them as well, and we don't have many RB6's running (yet). Out of the three heats of stock buggy last night there were only two. I think that piece is a little bit soft.

That piece has always been like that in the RB5/RT5. If you hit something at the right spot, it bends.

I don't know if this has already been said or not, but if in a bind the losi 22 ball studs fit if ever in a bind and need one. Just a little tighter on ball cup

After bending my second one with very little contact I have now just purchased the STRacing one and no issues. Cheaper and stronger.

Yup.

You can take two pieces of plexiglass or something similar and sandwich the brace between the two pieces and give it a couple taps with a hammer. That straightens it out fairly well. If you're going to a big race I would change it though.

It is a diferent width and i tried it on my rb5 and instead of breaking the pivot it would break the top bulhead and the bottom chassis clip. Definetly not a good replacement. That part gives for a reason

I need so help! I was looking at some of the setups and most pros are running the number 2 shock hole on the rear arm. Are they drilling this hole out or running a different arm completely?

you flip the arm around and run the single hole on the arms.
