On Kyosho America's site the RB6 kit price dropped down to $320 from $400, kinda makes me wonder if something new is coming...

Ok, this may be a dumb question but I need help. I just did the sideways mod to my Rb6, and I got the Mckune brace for the car. With the brace installed the battery is not able to be removed. Is this how its designed? I can make a few small mods so the brace can move enough to allow the battery to be removed, but is this how the brace is designed? Anyone running one what do you do?

I've seen 2 people run it and they both just left the battery in the car and charged it. You have to remove all 4 corners to get it out. I also didn't care for it because I cut the 2 tabs off the waterfall to get the battery back farther.

I may have to sell my Xray! New RB6.6 looks sick! I'll probably convert my old one to the RZ6...
