Make sure you get the RB5 rear outter hinge pins if you run the 521-1 arms. The Rb6 pins have a nut on both ends and go all the way through the 6 arms. Where the 521-1 arms use a shorter outer pin that is captured by the arm on one end and a small screw on the other end. You can make the Rb6 hinge pins work if you have to...if you want to drill the arm and have the hinge pin sticking out too far.

LA229 are the hinge pins you want to run with the 521-1 arms.

Thanks sy. I will add that to the order. Are you running the standard arms or the rb5 arms?

Did you notice a difference? Our track generally has good bite so I would think it wouldn't be much of an issue.

The original part bends really easy and at something like $14.00 it is a tough pill to swallow! Looks like Kyosho redesigned it to fix this issue. No more pliers to bend back hopefully! LOL

On a side note. After one too many Donkey Flips my bumper deformed causing this hinge plate to slip off the hinge pins CONSTANTLY. I used a heat gun, headed up the bumper and exagerated the original bend in the bumper. This has worked out perfect and alleviated the problem this far.

I just reamed out the part that captures the pin a tad and the regular pin fits, just use a 2mm shim on either side and it works perfect.

The different arms have a different feel, but I'm not sold one is better than the other.

Can someone tell me if the M566 WC rear arms are the same as the 521-1 arms?

+1 I agree. Anytime I was on the trigger, the car felt more locked in. Acceleration was much better and more predictable. Also, the 5 arms felt less dumpy in the rear.

Maybe it is just me but doesn't it look like he is running the front axles off of the SCR-SP instead of the 5? The car front axles has the hex area machined into it from what I remember.

You are thinking about the SP2 WC. It has the same axle as the RB6. The old SP2 and previous had the setup Tebo is running.

So Tebo is running the narrow front track width, but wide front hexes. Since roll center is measured out to the center of the tire contact patch... im not sure what this will accomplish, except maybe let him run a different offset front wheel without drastically changing his track... just a guess.
I love this hobby and I love my RB6. I can't get too technical as it will fry my brain. I tell you what though. Seeing Tebo, Cavalieri and all the guys at Reedy Race - now that is cool. WOW. I wish my fellow club racers hand the same driver etiquet.
