Thanks. I'll check the steering rack.

Yeah, happy with the strap. I feel like the kit needs a little bling as it's mostly plastic and even just a carbon battery strap makes it look better. The carbon strap is also a couple of grams lighter than the plastic one and stiffer as well (Unlike the Revolution Designs carbon strap I bought for the RB6 which actually weighed 2 grams more than the stock plastic one!). Given that no-one seems to make one for the ZX6 I just bought some carbon sheet and used the scroll saw and belt sander to cut it out. Drilling through the carbon was the biggest problem but I ended up using a carbide ball nose milling cutter at low speed to do the job. Quite easy and simple really and MUCH cheaper (if you don't count the cost of possible health complications . I did wear a carbon filter mask and used good dust extraction etc).

Rudebits already proposed some carbon parts for the ZX6 including battery straps: http://www.rudebits.co.uk/index.php?cPath=111_182

I think they fit, just a little short in the front. There are a couple pics on previous pages in the thread.

Ran mine yesterday with the stock springs and it had way to much steering causing it to over rate in the corners. Also went with a long shock end as the short didn't have enough droop. Hope to change the front to orange springs then test again.

Man I want more of those little black spongies. I wasnt sure where to put them so I put them on the front shaft section and cut some o-rings to make the rear portion feel similar. The manual doesnt mention what to do with them.

For those running the RB6 arms, are you running it arms forward and hubs forward?

Sponges go in the center diff according to the manual and yes both forward.

I was thinking of putting the esc in the rear of the motor to keep the weight in the rear. I saw a pic with that setup and the weight looks very even. Are u running the RB6 arms?

I thought the car has so much steering when I race it Friday night it was undrivable and the front end dives and hits the face of the jump making jump very awkward but went to work with it yesterday all day changing setup after setup and finally nailed it now my KYOSHO ZX6 was on rails it was unbelievable.
