I was happy with my 5 as well until I tried my 6. Was originally thinking to convert the 5 to a stock motor car but the 6 changed that .

If I got to run more than one one hour session a week I too would be all over the RB6.
But I got a new XB4 instead : )

Matt,

They are not necessary. I run a stock car with no alum. Kyosho parts at all and its dialed.

well got to run my car for the first time at the track. Car was pretty good. Def gave it a durablity test and the car held up perfect. I see what everyone is saying about it being aggressive, But I like it. Just need a tick more side bite and a little more foward traction. maybe tame the steering just a tad as well. Didnt look but does the rear toe block have markings on what degree toe it is? I have no idea what I have now but if I had to guess it bet its 3 degress. I wanna try 3.5. Does the 3.5 block come with the kit?

you need to use the different toe hubs to get different toe - can't be changed with blocks.
UMW516-0, 05 and 1 are the aluminium versions. UMW516GM- is the gunmetal colour.

I think there are plastic hubs too, but I don't know the P/n

STRC makes these http://www.teamstrc.com/index.php?ro...product_id=707.
The Kyosho ones have a large outer bearing, these ones use the regular bearings like the plastic hubs.
