I have a tuning question. I am trying to achieve 0 anti squat. If no spacers under the RF hangers means 2 deg how do i get 0 ? Also which rear hubs would work for this set up? want MORE side bite. Thanks RCT

I need to replace a diff outdrive cup, it has a pretty good nick in it. Should I rebuild the ball diff with new or jut take it apart and put it back together?

If I replace it is there a kit and what all do you replace.

Shim the RR suspension hanger to reduce anti-squat.. RB6 has a lot of weight transfer to the front reducing anti-squat forces the weight to be transferred more towards the back and it give you more forward bite..

Well do you want more side bite? or do you want more forward traction? Reducing your anti-squat isn't the direction to go, if you are lacking traction in the corners.

I have a Tekin Gen2 in my RB6 and a Speed Passion Reventon Pro in my SC10. While both are very good, the Speed Passion is much smoother and is very affordable at <$120. Many people state they are equivalent to the Orion Pros.

What's the difference in the front axles that come in the kit vs all the set up sheets that reference the rb-5 front axle

Clamp on hex is taller and would sit more securely in filling a deeper non-Kyosho wheel. The built in hex is one-piece steel. Cheers,

Slightly off topic, is it worth the effort to update the box stock Orion r10 ESC's firmware, as I only have iMac and office pc are secured. Cheers,

Hello,

Where can I find the front clamp on hexes? Do they accommodate the use of AE style wheels (I have a lot, having just moved from B4.2)?

I looked up RB5 front axles on Amain, but couldn't find front clamp ons, so I must be looking for the wrong thing. Any link to what I need?

Thanks!

Mark
