Wondering if an updated kit is coming soon..... Amain has had no RB6 kits in stock for a bit, HRP hasn't had one for weeks and Tower only has about 4.

could we be seeing a new kit with the 3 gear and sideways chassis soon??

I don't believe so. I have just purchased complete pieces or the drive shaft. Very rarely have I had to replace anything else.

I couldn't find anything.
Trying to save some money. The pucks setup lasts forever but can't get MIP axles anymore. Avid axles are half the price of KYO but don't come with the CVD parts. With just a little machine work I'm going to put Avid axles in MIP pucks drive shafts but need stock size CVD parts.
I just can't see spending 60 bucks on stock outdrives and drive shafts and axles when I got the whole car for 100.
MIP kinda messed up by inventing the pucks system because if you take care of them properly they really do last forever. My son beats the time out of his buggy. 3 dollars worth of pucks every now and then and it's good as new. Outdrives are still perfect. I have a whole new pucks setup for mine but zero spare axles so I'm saving the axles in case he breaks another one and trying to set mine up as cheaply as possible yet still have off the shelf stuff that doesn't require machine work.
I'm going to have to bite the bullet on something soon though. My stock shafts and outdrives are just about gone.

A couple of things;
First did I miss something with setups? It seems like there was a huge push for as narrow as possible for the rear hinge pins and buy the 3 line axles space them out. Blah blah blah, now tebos most current set up has the car set up to its widest potential front and back?

Second has anyone ran the JTP towers? Do they really make a differenc?

If it's the stock kit CVD parts you need, just buy new axle stubs, they come with the CVD parts and should only run you 20 bucks for a pair of the or less

If running the stock diff and bones, grease them some and it should help them last longer. Also you can repin the bones with some Traxxas 2.5x12mm pins and they do seem to last longer than the stock pins.

I'm looking at getting a Rb6, but the one I'm looking at is setup as a MM. What parts are needed to convert back to RM? MM doesn't work at our low bite outdoor track. Thanks gents.

You may want to give it a try, I acquired a couple of RB6s and we have been making them work on low traction dirt tracks. My MMs always make up time in tight sections.

To switch you need a diff case, bulkhead, shock tower, and hinge pin brace. Maybe 1 or 2 other minor things. Almost anyone here including me could sell you the parts.

Just got me this beauty. Might try MM at our track but I'm sure it'll get switched to RM very soon.

Any of you gents running MM on loose 8th scale, semi smooth outdoor tracks? Need some pointers on base setup for such a track. Thanks in advance

Tanner Day ran an outdoor event sometime last year (2015) and I heard his rear motor setup was really good. I think arms were spaced to D out/ D out. Maybe petit rc has it.
