The exotek fromt pin brace has been good to me, staying true after hits that would no doubt bend the other braces. I have had it for a while now

Does the MIP top shaft for the B4 fit correctly for the RB6?

Team-G- Why do you want to use the B4 top shaft? If you are wanting to run the Triad slipper you need the Avid top shaft.

I believe the Avid Triad shaft is lighter.

It definitely is. The AE top shaft is much heavier compared to the K and Avid Top shaft.

This is my first K 2wd buddy and I was amazed at how light it was.

I am not going for lightness. Going for acceleration. The K 2wd buggies are heavier than most other 2wd buggies IMO.

is it not the same thing in this case?

if you try hard enough you can get it to mid 1500s. Can probably reduce further if you go the tessman route and chop the side braces

I have a set of V2 hubs on my car, ran them yesterday at top notch race. Only difference is press in plastic inserts for different bearing sizes

The new hangers are what is adjustable

In regards to buggy weight, I saw a 1680 gram buggy run a second a lap faster than everyone else in money stock
