Just picked up the rb6 last night and I will be hoping to get it out this weekend. Will be my first time running the rb6 or any 2 wheel buggy really so hopefully I get the hang of it and enjoy the car.

Default This is something I can work with...

Ran the RB6 for the first time in practice for a few packs.

Tons of rear bite and steering, pretty solid out of the box.

Jumps awesome, great tracking, very predictable.

kit pistons need heavy oils. Try the Ghea 1.3x4 hole tapered or if you don't want to spend the money, get the TLR pistons for the 22 series vehicles in the 55 size. The hole size is almost identical. Just remember to put a thin shim on the piston because they are a hair thinner.

If you don't care about the money, which owning a Kyosho you shouldn't , get the Ghea's

To me it's still easier to cut down the longs.

Down travel is not a bad thing on this car

Anyone run the Losi Low Frequency springs?


Also, anyone have any issues with slop?
Mine has a bit in the arms and castor blocks.
Although I suspect the rear is in the hangers (going to buy the Exotek hangers soon).

Has anyone used the kingpin kit?

Medium length shock ends are 97038. Even though Kyosho calls them long on the package, they are the medium ends. The long shock ends are LA43.
