The part number is the same for the drive shafts on the WC and the RB6(UM522). I think the WC uses 65.5mm shafts as well.

If you want vectors just import any of their PDFs (manuals, setup sheets, etc) into Illustrator.

Interesting to see that with the RB5 or RB6, Tebo stands at about the same ranking ... the new car must work for sure, but in the end not any much differently ("faster") than the previous one otherwise he'd have won (not that I expected a "new" design to lap 0.5s faster than the field mind you, i've been in the hobby for a bit too long now ) - So most of the PoD for the car is its native mid layout feature

Tebo says is easy to go fast, usually that means there may be some room to push the car further. But everyone else is running newer cars too kyosho was really the last to make a production change so it sounds like he is now more competitive and not having to overall push the car as hard, i.e. the car is faster than the RB5 and now not at a disadvantage.
