Are people running weight under the steering rack or on top of their servo? i remembered today on my rb5 i had a couple lead pieces stashed on top of my front bulkhead and want to know if that is a common placement for weight on the 6? I also asked a few pages back about getting my mid motor to be more responsive in a switch back section and putting the screws back into my side pods was a suggestion, but it only slightly helped out. Any other suggestions?

EDIT: Maybe these could help me out?

Yea not as many as 17.5, in 13.5 three RB6's made the A-Main (2 mid motor, and 1 rear motor) along with five B4.2's, and two 22's. If memory servers me right, there was three RB6's in the B-Main (All rear motor).

Anyone care to explain how to use these adjustable inserts?

Outb/Outb is 3.0 wide but outc/outc also is 3.0 wide.

Would the Proline velocity wheels be a direct fit with same offsets?

Hello
Trying to decide between RB6 and B4.2, I mainly run stock 17.5. My main concern with RB6 is the weight difference between RB6 and B4.2? Is the RB6 too heavy for stock?
Thanks for any info

You can get down around 1550g easy enough with a shorty pack

I ran a 10.5 for the first time on this car, we run slicks and the car was pulling wheelies all over the place. I put 60g up front through out the night, but didn't help enough. Would less squat decrease rear weight transfer? I have the shorty almost all the way forward already.

More anti squat will make less weight transfer. I would leave anti alone and adjust droop and springs. Less front droop stiffer rear spring
