here's my mid mofo rb6. I did the shorty pack with my own flare and must say it works great. Qualed just a few seconds behind local fast sponsored guy and it suits me well. Running Tebo's march '13 mid motor setup with a couple small changes.

I modded the side pods and used a photon ex battery strap. There are foam pads on either side to tke up the space and i dremeled down in the plastic to make it as low as possible plus added battery stops. Had to dremel the screws lower too that hold the pods in back.

I know u guys like pics.

Hello my fellow racers. I want to build a car that will most likely use an rb6 body, so i need to know, how wide and long it has to be for the body to fit.

I would be really happy if someone here would quickly measure this for me:

it can also be a bit wider than the rb6, just the bodys have to fit. the green lines also include the plastic side bumpers, not just the plane aluminium chassis.

Sorry if I have missed something but can you buy spare screws other than the titanium screws?
I have been looking but cannot find anything

My own experience is with full pack centered it will be very tight even with low-profile servo and rx (KO one10 and KO411). Maybe with battery back there's enough room up front? Had to stick the rx in the side channels (which I felt is not secure and safe). I didn't try the rx on top of the battery though. Good Luck, Cheers.

i was just lookin at tebos car and with that ko one10 it looks like there is plenty of room just didnt know off hand that it was the servo that made the difference because there is room inbetween the servo and battery brace but ill see what i can come up with
