Not so easy. I have to much invested in this area. I have a business. Me and my wife just purchased a home and have a few rental homes also. I can't just pick up and move. I would lose too much money if I would try to sell everything in this crappy economy. I'm also just sayin.......

Yes, the RB6 uses the sme diff as the RB5. And it includes pink X-Gear springs up front, red in the rear.
