Always improving, that's awesome! That makes 5 different RB6 chassis released out to the public. The battery stop is great for MM, although I glued a thin battery foam to move my battery forward.

whats the flex differance between the lightweight chassisand the first gen chassis. yeah i know there is a weight differance. but what about flex? the reason i ask this is because my chassis has a lot of flex in it and any more i would think it would bend pretty easy.

Well with the stock chassis the team is not using the screws in the side pods or the transmission brace in the chassis. So it would seem they are looking for more flex for the rear motor set-up. We will have to wait and see what the Cactus classic brings back for set-up changes from last year.

The LW flexes quite a bit. There's a lot of milling there. I run the screws in the side but not for the motor brace.

...are you just leaving the two lower screws out or not running the motor brace at all?

I'm running the 1st gen chassis and flat out got rid of the chassis brace. I put the first 2 screws in the side rails and it's been pretty good so far. there is definitely a lot of flex but it hasn't bent.

Nelson is talking about this one, UM723. I believe the same is true with the others.

Still new to Kyosho. Can you tell me what size the stock pistons are? I know they are 5 hole for kit pistons. What are they equivalent to in a 2 and 3 hole piston?

So what is the consensus on the new light weight chassis? Is it better for mm? or no real difference?

I really like the LW chassis. I have all the steering I need but with more rear grip.
