Default RB6 body

Does anyone know if you can buy the Kyosho RB6 body on its own yet?
If so where?
Thanks
Chris

PS: Drove the RB6 at our local track on the weekend (Bumpy, high bite carpet track), car was kit, except for shock oil, using saddle packs - in mid mount config, handled like it was on rails.
Kyosho you've done it again

the bodys seems to have come over as a spare part with the kits here in the uk so yes you can buy them, but with you being in Aus maybe worth trying where you got the kit from?

Here's a link anyway for ya .....

I already own both.

Used Tekin RS Pros back in 2009/2010 with no prob

Orion R10 in DB1 and FS2

Just looks tight in RB6 as I have a Sanwa 451R to install if I purchase RB6

Doesn't Jared run the R10 Pro in rear motor configuration? I hope so because that is what I have to run in mine. I have ran Tekin for years and had one failure due to user error. Just recently started running the R10 Pro and paired with the Orion 8.5 it is sooooooo smooth.

Hi Chris,

Yean I saw that too, just doesn't look that neat in my view

Don't get me wrong, Evdo's, Burton's etc. were all neat, but a shame you have to put the RX there!

Shame about yesterday but a great day on Saturday!

Mike
