Hey guys, I just got an RB6 and the rear of the chassis under the transmission got dented. I heard a rumor that kyosho america would send a replacement. Is this true?

Thanks!

Turns out maybe I jumped the gun as he isn't the original owner. Perhaps the original owner moved to the pink/red xgear or just put the color on the coil himself.

Id like to have post #1 to centralize all our information on the car, and continue to build on the info. Matt Posvar was going to try and get that request put through... were waiting to hear from the powers that be. (EDIT: Sent you a PM)

thought I'd post a pic of a RB6 Finisher body I painted for a local. The bodys lines are very nice. I like it.

Why - it makes perfect sense for first post to cover the common questions?

Not technically possible. We can pm kraig and he can put info up, but there will be new info on a constant basis... it would be a full time moderating job just to update the 1st post on this thread... who knows.

RB6: X-Gear Springs included in kit, Pink FR, Red RR (both have paint dabs on them)
You're correct, the RB5 SP2 WC came with Blues, these are between Pink and White, and you could only get them in the kit.
