Way better! On a side note was looking at all the rear hangers available and it seems the front hanger is the same for narrow and wide or am I missing something?

No, the front is different for wide and narrow just like the rear.

They are all listed on the first page of this thread.

Exotek now also makes them, and even some options Kyo doesn't offer.

Everything steers better then a 22.... except maybe the dex210. This car can steer just as aggressively as the infamous b4. It can have as much or as little as you want, tuned in or out based on your setup.

The front suspension hanger is designed specifically for the RB6. There are THREE front hangers, two for the RB5, and one for the RB6. If you want to change the front track width of the RB6, by design, you do it using the inserts in the caster blocks.

Are the kit springs any good for outdoor clay?

Depends on the traction level of the track. If traction is low, you may want to run gold rears, or even white rears, depending on how much traction is lacking.

if you do run the gold rears, you will lose corner speed so make sure you stand the rear shocks up.

it will get you just about back to the same speed but provide more grip..

Another quick question: those running MM with the ESC behind servo: would 10" wire from ESC to motor be enough? Thx!

My bulldog is doing ok. I have a hole in the side from getting t-boned by a Losi 4x4 SCT... but that's kind of an extreme case.
