Car felt better...is this down to narrow rear end? What's the theory here?
The offset was no different on the sets I have and measured.

I don't think you're understanding how to measure this. Here's a video of Adam Drake explaining it, he can do better than me. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H99PKqsUZjA

Here is the RC Speedshop.com's RB6 "House Car."

First Kyosho Kit I have ever assembled - extremely impressed with the quality, fit and finish. The shocks reputation has been confirmed in my opinion - they are money!

Can't wait to get it dirty...

Looks god, Todd. FYI, I have heard of people having issues with transponders mounted right on the alu chassis. Can't confirm myself, just something iv heard in passing.

I modified mine to work. I made it before the avid topshaft came out. U only have to grind the vts a very small amount to get it to fit. Pretty much just take off the anodizing. Sorry I thought u were doing the same.

Just a quick update on the all MIP tranny on mine. Have had 3 solid race days and 2-3 proper (5+ pack) practice days on my car. I still see no signs of outdrive/swing shaft wear. Its way better than the stockers for sure. The hexes have absolutely no wear. I am not kind on my axles I use a makita impact wrench and serrated loc nuts on all my cars.

The diff is a slight BIT notchy now but its prob my fault, I did not build it with the MIP balls but the stock kyosho balls which were in the older diff. I will pull it apart for the summer season of course.

Just backing you up. Don't want someone who acts like they know it all saying you're completely wrong (when you're correct).

Glad Adam Drake is on our side

I'm going to Vineland, NJ 4/6 to run 1/8 nitro and mod buggy. I was told to throw in a 8.5 motor. Can anyone recommend gearing with the stock 76t spur gear? Thanks

23/76 is ballpark gearing for an 8.5 in the RB6. Run for a few laps and check your power-spread for the track.
