Yep, gets my vote!

Saw a guy do that a few years ago with about a $2000 airplane. Was having engine problems. Loaded it all up to go home. Got back out of his car, unloaded it, looked at it for a few seconds, then calmly began stomping it out of existence. Psycho for sure!

I just bought the RB6 recently and in the photos on the Kyosho website it shows the RB6 coming with aluminum steering assembly. Mine came with plastic. It sure looks like aluminum in the photo. What do you think? False Advertisement!?!

It's a goof. Not sure why they took the shots with an aluminum rack, but the kit comes with a plastic one.

Those were pics of the proto-type care; I thought there was a disclaimer on the site indicating this? Can't remember either way though.

Regards,
These shots are certainly NOT of a prototype car. These are the official product shots from Kyosho, and are still on the website now.

Hey guys it was a last minute change to go plastic. The aluminum rack could possibly be an upgrade later on.

It looks like people are already breaking the plastic rack... is a future aluminum rack just a thought at this point? or is it something actually being planned?

www.rudebits.co.uk for some nice carbon battery straps

Tresrey, mmm all the Durangos I've seen in the UK have huge slop with those parts, expensive and wear like a kipper.

After talking to a few different after market companies they are considering it and some are in the works. You should see alot of after market stuff pretty soon from different companies for the RB6.

I would like to see Kyosho do a factory steering rack and front suspension mount in Aloy but thats just me.
