"Needs" nothing out of the box. But, some possibilities might be-

Springs for tuning - Comes with gold/gold F/R. Orange/Yellow nice to have up front, maybe red/white for the rear.

Alumium servo horn? Unless you are a plastic/'saver' kind of guy.

As far as 'bling' goes - already has the gunmetal hexes, shock caps, hinge pin mounts,etc. As it should for a >$500 kit.

Aluminum battery posts with the thumbscrews are a nice addition. Comes with two sets, so if running shorty will have a spare, or set to sell to another zx6 owner.

Hearing I need to shim the center diff/slipper. What shims are being used to take out the play so the spur gear doesn't strip?

I used a single thin shim (.02-ish) of the appropriate size for the slipper assembly bearings (don't have the size handy). The amount of play likely varies from car to car, so will just have to adjust needed thickness by feel.

Aluminum rear v2 hubs are a nice upgrade/option as well.

Yes they are but please use the 5x13 outer bearing. You can use the stock bearings with the provided inserts but they don't last near as long as going with the larger outer bearing.

No idea what brand I used. Looked up the bearing is 10x15x4mm - I went on the inside of the bearing, so something around 10mm, and very thin so you don't bind things up.

I tried rear motor with shorty pack. For me buggy is unpredictable mid air and it just bottoms out on landing. I have seen setup which they have more pack on the rear than on the front which I don't think it's a good idea traction wise. I took mine a part and switching back to front motor setup which I like better buggy jump better and it doesn't bottom out.

Does anyone know what the part number is for the ZX6 Gear Differential outdrives is? I cant find a ZX6 specific part number, but don't know what parts are shared.

Thanks

I'm almost certain it's UM612, shared with the geared diff from the SC etc, if someone has to hand the LAW50 diff build instructions it gives the part number for the outdrive.

There are velvet coated diff ally bevel shafts available to...TFW008

Part number for the gear dif outdrives is TFW125 or TFW009.
UM612 is for RB6 gear dif.

thought they were the same as the RB6/SC shafts... Was that from the geared diff build manual?
