Anybody know if Tebo was running a pair of aluminium RF2/RR2 (wide) hinge pin holders? Can't make it out from the pictures. Would it be necessary with the alum chassis I wonder? I can make out the finned SP motor plate and alum 0 deg hubs. Thanks,

I talked to Jared about the rb6 this weekend at the Missouri state finals. He ran the clamping front hexes and axles with the caster inserts set to a shorter width, but still ran the RB6 suspension mount. He did not run aluminum hinge pin mounts, the new ones are stronger and so are the rear hubs. He also ran .5* hubs at WCRC nationals because the track was a little loose. He also ran the original RB5 flat 521-1 arms with one hole. He said he does not like the feel of the gull wing arms.

LOL! Luckily the RB6 didn't win ROAR otherwise we'll be seeing the RB6 SP!

I am wondering if the RB6 hinge pin mounts are those that came with the RB5 carbon comp T-plate pack, therefore being carbon composite? Reading through the manual and sorting thru the pieces. The shock o-rings are the normal orange type, not x o-rings. The hinge pin bushings are metal, will need LAW32 SP bushings if I run alum hinge pin holders. The alum chassis plate is amazing though wow. The lexan wing has 3 cut-out lines for your lip/drag, which is nice little improvement over the RB5/ZX5 wing pack.

Was he running the clamping front axle for any reason impaticular. U can get the same offset with either axle. Just wonder what the reason for this is
