Me and another kid in St.Louis have come to the conclusion that if the track gets slick out, run the 6arms, if not, run the -1

i have the Exotek rack, it tightened up the feel of the steering and i haven't broken anything else.

i wouldn't recommend going all aluminum in steering dept but if you want some added security, and dont have the updated plastic part, add the exotek rack.

If the wallet allows, i wouldn't hesitate. I think the car is better in all regards. The BIGGEST difference to me, is how much better the car jumps and lands. Just night and day better than the rb5.

That being said.. the RB5 is still a fantastic car.

I still have my 5 (need to sell it). I planned on keeping the roller around until I was SURE the 6 was going to be better enough to keep it.... and for me, it certainly is.

yep, 4 instead of 2... nice, but certainly not necessary. Outer hole on the stock hubs will be just right anyway. The best benefit is actually the larger more durable outer bearing... but bearings are only a buck, and they don't really go out anyway. What im saying is, don't worry about it too much. Not in stock in a store right now? Well, go back in a month and look. no biggy.

Wide hangars with .5 hubs.
