adjustable rear toe hangers nice. Kyosho leman motors, have not seen those in a really long time. The charger looks like a imax clone/icharger clone.

Reminds me of that old Le Mans 240ST motor I have from like 25 years ago sitting in a box in storage. Haven't heard that name in awhile.

Nice some 1/8 style suspension hangers for the car! Still wondering what different resin bearing bushings are gonna do though. They listed the 0.5 hubs now.

How is the RB6 compared to a Durango Dex210 overall and on low surface tracks?
Do you think it makes sense to switch?

Rb6 all day if you run into the issue of needing more rear bite goto a less aggressive front tire.

I ran my rb6 on an outdoor track with fluff everywhere and it was fine. I ran rips up front and holeshots in the rear. I found it very easy to go fast with.

Ran mine for the first time with the wire in the side pod with 0 reception issues. Makes for a clean look.

Do the inserts suffer wear and tear? Anyone with a ZX-5 comment? I hope one can buy the inserts seperately.
