(edit: I spy gil losi jr, there at the end! )
I thought the same thing. It happens fast, but it looked like Maifield got into Naoto after the triple and a-holed Cav at the end. Naoto did go a little wide and maybe tried to get back into his line too late.

I started the build nd have a question regarding the front hubs installing on the arms. With the 1mm plastic collar it seems to bind a little should I replace with the .5 plastic collar

I would build the kit as-is.. run a couple packs through it... and check again. The car has tight tolerances, but it will loosen up all on it's own. Same with the gears in the gearbox.

first run of my RB6 this past weekend. have had it build and ready for a couple months, just no opportunity to run it until now.

1st drive/meet, out of the box setup.. and did far better (7th in the Amain) than I ever did with my TLR 22 after countless changes. VERY happy.

I use the Kyosho LAW42 servo horns on both of my RB6's... Have had the same two servo horns for 2+years now (with KO RSX Response servo's), never skipped a beat and I run 3-4 days a week. R'Dub

in regards to the caster block/arm spacing, you will only use quantity one, 1mm shim towards the back of the block (if building per the manual with a neutral/middle front wheelbase). The inserts were specifically designed to have 1mm built into them already.
