Good photos of tebo's car, you can see most of his setup except shock oil/pistons. Note the caster block moved back in the arm.
Car is so clean....

It's not certain there's a new kit soon but I would say the writings on the wall:

1. Prices are lowered to move
2. World's is happening now
3. Designer is probably designing a "World Champion RB6" box.

According to Amain, the prices are lowered since Kyosho is a title sponsor in the IFMAR Worlds.

Good photos of tebo's car, you can see most of his setup except shock oil/pistons. Note the caster block moved back in the arm.

He has been running a flipped steering rack which moves the link ball stud back 1.25mm. I think in this case moving the block back will not be as aggressive as not flipping the rack and moving the caster block back. he basically shifted everything back equally.

He also ran a gear diff with 5k in it and A/B out in the rear hangers for 3.5 toe. This should be an interesting thread after everyone looks at his setup sheet lol.
