My stock car comes in at 1517g. I'm sure I can shave a few more off with some ti goodies and the avid top shaft/ triad slipper. Stock class is a different animal.

Just want to share: the bulldog is one ugly SOB, it ripped at the back on its first outing, but my word it tracks like a gyroscope. The incompetence of the driver is there for all to see

So for us people who just got an RB-6, how much anti squat does the car have when there is no shim under rear block? then how much do you add/subtract when you change by 0.5?

Also, has anyone tried raising the transmission?

2* no shims.

reduce antisquat by adding shims under the RR block.

Thanks SK, so if there is a 0.5 shim back there, most likely it has 1 degree then and if you add a 1.0 mm shin its 0, correct?

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
This buggy is a lot planted and easier to drive when heavy. I tried shorty pack and for me it's unpredictable to drive and it's get easily upset when you hit a bump so I switch to full size lipo and it's night and day.

Default narrow hanger mid motor

Does anyone know if you can run mid motor with the narrow hangers? If so do you use the same hanger as rear motor or a different one?
Thanks in advance!

Buy one and try it? You could probably just compare them at the hobby shop in their respective packaging.

My rb6 has a stupid amount of initial turn in. Is there anything I can do to lessen it? I am running a mid motor on carpet.

Also for some resason my car just wants to throw a whip off of the biggest jump on the track. Not saying I don't like it cause it makes it look awesome! Just want to know why lol

Rebuild your shocks Jake, it will stop the whip off the jump. You can use other front tires that are less aggressive too. The block pass is really edgy.

I'm gonna run laps tomorrow if its not raining.

I already re did the shocks and I was using gold bar codes. Blake drove mine and he said to tighten the slipper more but otherwise it is just like his. He also said Jeff woods mm rb6 would do whips like mine.

Try a little toe-out in the front, and maybe try more caster. 25 caster will make initial and low speed steering really aggressive. 30 will feel more tame in the infield.
