Yeah the RB6 arms seem to give a lot more steering so I don't think necessary on the ZX6...mid corner of power especially... Kit arms gives in my opinion more consistent steering through the whole turn...

In the UK a lot of people on the RB6 run these arms for that reason alone WITH the new inside hole...I guess that's because we all run on high grip astro..

I will be trying however the new hole on the RB6 arms on my RB6..

Anyone have a chart for the various suspension holders front and back and what type of degrees each combo entails?

Have a look on petitrc under ZX6 and you will see the rear ones.. Then look under RB6 for what I'm sure will be the front ones for the ZX6... ( same inserts etc used)

Yea, looked there already, but the link for the chart does not work on the zx-6 sus holders amd RB-6 only has links for it's rear holders, which are different. Can't believe the manual doesn't have a chart.

Yes, should be in the manual - but it's not. I asked about this when I first built my car too.

That will work for F/R inserts.

Basically allows you to not only change toe-in (or sweep in the front), but also track width depending on which inserts you use to achieve said toe in.

Notice on most setups the front will be C/C, which map out to zero degree toe, using the chart. And the rear will be some combination to achieve toe-in.

What handling change occurs going from 3.0 to 3.5? Thanks for that chart.

Ive had a look and measured different holes on the different wishbones, NCG, KIT and RB6 they all seem the same to me??

Adds more toe-in same as any other car - More forward traction, at cost of some rear side bite. Run less toe-in when the grip is high to free the car up/rotate better in corners.

I'm curious, why gear diffs? My standard ball diffs are solid and handling great. I check them between runs just to make sure they are tight but I'm not yet seeing the need.

High bite sugar tracks will benefit with gear diff due to the added traction and then there's the maintence part.

For me it's a maintenance thing. Lazy racer here
