Hey guys, I just got the RB6 and it drives well but it's like I have to drive it very carefully as it wants to drive all from the front. Going into the corners it feels good but then wants to pivot on the front way too much. It seems very characteristic of rb6's. Plenty of forward grip, just need it to be more lazy in the middle of the corner. It's fast, just feels like it always wants to kill me in the middle of the corner.

I think it is for the lazer and is under the parts category for it.

That seems the defeat the purpose. The plastic that fits on the servo is the 1st to give.

Can someone give me the part numbers to make this holder? I looked on amain and I couldn't find anything but the battery post nuts.

Here's mine. I placed the capacitor behind the r10 so it makest everything inline.. almost*. Once I get the mini servo I'll shorten the wires even more.


(Thank you Brandon for your help and ideas)

1 piece of advice, you get far better transponder performance when it's mounted horizontally instead of vertically. Might not be an issue for you, but if your RD ever says your signal strength is low, put that guy on top of the servo instead of behind it. I hear its also important to keep it off an alu chassis.
will move the transponder to where it should be, thanks!

Is there a guide on how to read the setup sheets? I understand how to setup my car following the sheet but what effect will it do? Like what would 1mm shims on the ackerman do? Shims under ball studs etc.
