I just put the Zach Rogers setup up to a T on my car. Moved the speedo/battery and receiver in the same spots. Might try it out this weekend, not sure yet.

Hope your competitors don't forget their wood screws... 'Cause you're gonna blow their doors completely off.

I went speedo in front of the battery because I want the battery as far back as I can get it for extra rear weight.

How does that compare with battery all the way back with ESC on the shelf above the battery by the motor guard?

Did you drill extra holes to get the battery strap that far back?

Default Slipper build question

Hi all,
I'm building my new RB6, and have a question about the slipper assembly. In the manual it says to "remove flashing" from the spur gear. Can anyone confirm what this is referring to? What is the "flashing" on the gear? Thanks!

If there would be any flashing (extra plastic from the molding process) on the spur gear, it would be in the hole that the shaft goes thru.

are you sure they didnt spell it "frashing" like they did on the alum hub carrier instructions?

Default zack vs. flat

curious as to what others have felt in the difference between the z.r. extra hole vs. the flat rear arms, in regards to handling. I've tried both, and favor the 3 hole (and so does your mom). it seems to have a much more tame rear end and overall is easier to drive.. however, the flat were a little faster,(high bite track) when i was able to run "perfect" laps.

thoughts...?

I haven't tried it with the ESC up top but I may try that after running this way for a bit. I prefer to have as much weight down low as possible and I am not sure I would be able to fit the body on it with my ESC on top of the shelf. I could relocate the fan and see if it would fit that way.

I agree the flat arms felt more nimble but also prefer the glue-like feeling of the ZR setup.

Flat arms keeps the car flatter through the corners. I like how the RB6 arms jump as well.
