If your buying used then maybe a good idea to upgrade stuff you thinks been roughly used and for that the steering rack is a must and so are the aluminum suspension holders.
We saw all kinds of rear upper bulkheads break FAR too easily up here. And while I agree that it's no big deal to just replace if they break, but a break in a race equates to a DNF. Running a longer ballstud and lock nut on the original bulkhead pretty much fixes the issue right off the bat, possibly saving a DNF.

+1. And I would add don't over tighten the ballstud / locknut

Hmm weird, I only ripped a front ball stud out the inner left front with a gnarly crash. For rear ones only things that broke were shock towers. I did put all the set screws in so maybe that helped but no nut under . I ordered a futable low pro from tower to shave some weight off, next will do some wire trimming... Love the new 80C packs though best ever yet from IP!!

Long ball stud, locknut on the bottom, and if you look closely, set screws on the extra holes.

Is the foam to keep dirt out? I have seen it on some TCs but not offroad.

Huh. I just went through the rb6 and fs2sp manuals and didn't see when to install them.

They're listed as a "spare" though, pn UM145, item no. 39 in the rb6 manual.

oh well. I use these because I'm on a very dirty outdoor track. They last maybe 5 meets between washing and/or replacing

I have a great kit then. I have none of these items and still run the plastic rear suspension holder. I run my car 2-3 a week and still have not broken anything.

I've seen you drive a lot... You don't hit anything for anything to break

I see it. Why do you need an extra screw there?

Will the same wheels that fit a B4 fit the RB6?

The set screw just fills in the space to make it solid and eliminate flex that could break it.
