I have them ready for my new car when I build it next month. Kurt has made them the same width as the current Kyosho ones.

If memory serves someone measured the difference in track width and when using non Kyosho wheels the width is 2mm less. Im just going to run a shim on the outside of the hex to address this.

Absolutely nothing, the car is as competitive as it gets out of the box. You may need stiffer springs, but every track/driver varies.

Hey guys how's your RB6 bulldog holding up? Mine's received a 2 inch rip at the back along those one of the acute angled body lines. First run with it! The Blade body is holding up. Thanks,
