Yeah, I had made my choice awhile ago. I just needed the cash to buy it. My RB5's will be up on eBay soon.

I saw that one on eBay as well. My local hobby shop is checking for me as well.

To shim, the front or rear of the axle?
The inside of the axle opposite side of the spindle from the hex.

That's how I did it. I have seen pics of others that shimmed the other side instead. I guess they wanted a wider track width.

Yep.. that's a killer price, but I too hold some value in being able to build it right out of the box. If just having an extra / secondary kit is your goal, this is the way to go. If its your first 6, id buy new. (but that's just me)

That is a thought. I am waiting to hear back from my LHS. I would rather buy from them of course. I am the only Kyosho driver (for 10th scale anyway) around so they are kind enough to special order kits and parts for me. I try to give them as much business as I can because of that.

Really? Its around 80% price of a brand new car. I'd never do that, building a kit is one of the most satisfying things in this hobby!

Haha I dont mind wiring up stuff but I HATE HATE HATE painting bodies. There is soooo much stress in painting, half the time forget to clean my airbrush wear a mask, and then I end up painting my arms

BTW anyone in Northern California looking for the RB6, Kraig @ Delta RC in antioch has at least one on the shelf might be more.
