Nothing else to say really. Since this is a medium traction setup, it would probably work really well on the tracks in my area.

I have a few questions.

Any one know the yellow wheel part number both front and rear so I can order my shoes?

What size spur will be in the kit?

What color springs are in the kit? Any one have the front pink and rear red part numbers?

Lastly I don't get his comments in the comment section. How can you go 3mm, nut, 1mm then shock?

Thanks

Well im wrong about the link now that i looked at tebos setup but why would he go to the old style rear arms. It doesnt really say much about what type of r and d went into the car if hes running the old parts. Kinda makes me second guess if i want to buy it!

3mm spacer on the screw next to the tower, then the nut, then a 1mm spacer, then the shock, and finally the shock retaining nut.

Great, now to start the build (there is no 'standard' setup in the instructions).

I had the same thoughts as you. They also run the slipper they had before the WC...did they not test the WC slipper enough? I will probably still buy it

It looks like they used the new spacers from trhe newer slipper just not the new plates. Seems a bit odd. I wish kyosho would say y they made the changes they made and what is expected from them.

+1 doesnt make me too confident when buying the most expensive 2 wheel buggy on the market.

From what was said earlier in this thread by someone who spoke with him(Tebo) personally, it was a feel thing and not a performance thing on the arm change.

Does anyone else have this same issue? When I put my transmission together, it does not seem to be as free as other makes (Losi, Team Associated, etc..) I've backed the screws out as far as I can without coming out of the backplate, so I know it's not that they are too tight... Just seems that when you turn the outdrives, the spur does not want to spin real free... Thoughts and suggestions would be greatly appreciated...

Do you run the transmission dry? I never have on my RB5 and it is the same transmission as the RB6. I always use some black grease in it. It also might just need some break in time.
