Will the B4 wheels fit on this if they are pin/hex RB5 SP2? (I know this is the rb6 thread sorry)

So b4 wheels to RB5 SP2 worlds.

Did you get them at OCRC or direct from Exotek?

Sorry for my noob question, but I'm just getting started with the RB6. To go narrow MM, do I need the Exotek MMR hangere only, or the MMR2 as well?

Thanks.

Makes the car turn in harder, little loss in stability

Wider makes it turn in softer

Thanks, so going wide seems like one method to curb any aggessive steering.

Today i tried 1 deg hubs with 3 deg of anti squat and it felt really good. Lots of traction inthe rear but still rotated in good.

Got a chance to take the new girl out,

Ran it all stock. It's pretty good, but will need a little more time to dial it in. The only thing I wasn't too thrilled with were the 5 hole shock pistons, seemed to lack just enough pack to make the chassis bottom out a little bit too much. Outside of that, I'm pretty impressed so far. Now some serious practice days at the track are in order.

You should've asked one of us at the track. You never drove mine when I had it but it was dialed. 4x1.3 ghea pistons is what everyone is using.
