Great question, only a select few know and they probably work for Kyosho in Japan.

Actually, I've heard through the grapevine that a new car is coming. Notice the lack of RB6 stock everywhere?

I hope the new car kit is either a laydown transmission or a full kit of the RZ6. I actually just picked up the XB2 so I could have a laydown transmission car for carpet. I still think the RB6 is a dope car.

Okay new to the rb6 platform, and kyosho as a whole. Excited to get this thing going at my local track for club racing. What are some helpful tips for someone new to the brand/buggy that you might have found advantageous from the get go? Are there any resounding weaknesses that one should assess immediately? And what shock build/spring set ups are people generally having the most success with on a high bite indoor clay track? Any helpful tips from experience would be appreciated.

Also on another note. I know this has probably been beaten to death already but if someone could describe the possible advantages to a motor forward build such as the rz6, and what applications its best suited for. I'm curious.

I've had great luck on high bite running a variation of one of Tebos setups. For shocks I've been running 1.6x2 pistons with 400CST oil all the way around, pink springs in front and gold in the rear. Camber -2 rear, -1.5 front, 21mm ride height front and rear. 3 gear tranny, battery inline.

As for the rz6 it was created for high grip carpet like the worlds track at Yatabe. It moves the cars weight bias around a bit and gives it more agility in extreme grip situations like carpet affords. I have never run that variation myself.

Okay thanks for the info. Now with the 3 gear tranny are you running stock or mod?

I run stock. It has the largest turnout at my track and the mod cars are actually slower on our tight layouts. However you can run mod and stock with 3 gear. The benefits work regardless of class.

It's been up on the Japanese sites for pre-order for a few days now. The release date is next Friday for about $230USD. Figure about another $25ish for shipping.

Futaba Pro Shop is awesome, just did another order last night that I will have by early next week!

Looks like the release date is actually May, unless that's just bad translation.

I believe he's referring to complete kits. Kyosho does a good job of supporting older model parts.
