Amazing install! Look forward to seeing V3!

RogerM, sounds good! Hope we see a new high grip gearbox for the RB6, it's an amazing platform for 90% of surfaces but hopefully with this gearbox change it can take the fight to the front motor 2wd's

As far as my spur gear issue. It appears the failures are related to the motor slipping out of position. I have sanded the motor plate in the mounting area with a 120grit sand paper to give the mounting bolts more friction to hold onto. So far it seems to be helping.
Thank you so much.. At least now I can use all my old wheels that fitted the 22 back.. Cheers!!

It depends. I went from shorty to saddle packs in the full rear position to gain a bit more forward bite. The saddles definitely locked in the rear but it feels like I lost the nimbleness from the shorty packs. Saddles makes it easier to drive consistently but have lost some of the responsiveness.

seems to be a huge weight difference. almost 70 grams.

Saddle will also exaggerate any condition you are feeling.

Testing has been fairly limited so far (not enough high bite tracks near me running meetings at the moment) but hopefully will pick up in the new year.

So far it is very quick, definitely more so than my previous forward motor car, and quicker than the RB6 on high bite stuff.

Bolts on to an otherwise stock RB6 chassis too

Which Losi spring is equivalent to the Kyosho Pink? My buggy I bought came with Losi Silvers up front. I will be running indoors on high bite clay.
