Not to mention that when you do maintenance is just a few cents worth of diff oil, vs $30+ of diff/thrust balls.

Other than that, just good to have the option of running ball/gear diffs.

Well i've got the gear diffs on the way. Apex hobby said they were in stock so i ordered 2 sets, one for front and one for rear. I'm impatient so i really didn't want to wait haha. I will be building the car with them to start.

Use a short shock bottom and then a shock eyelet and just use a screw to secure it.

Makes sense. I threw yellow springs and narrowed the rear hinges 1 letter and mine is dialed. I hear the 44.3 comes with gears and many are switching back to balls. For me at least, this is the first kit I have gotten that was almost perfect out of the box.

Is the box setup a good starting point for medium bite clay?? Or is there another setup that's better.

Measure the holes from the outside hinge, they were slightly off for me.

why are folks wanting to use the rb6 arms with the zx6. It's funny how a lot of folks wanted to use the rb5 arms with the rb6, to eventually end up using the stock rb6 arms... why not keep what kyosho have put in their kits? Just curious..

Because was on a setup sheet from a pro driver. They fit without any modification. Why not try is the better question.

That said, I've ran the rb6 rear arms for a couple days and going back to the kit/flat arms as for my personal preference at the moment.

I get that... These pro drivers on a completly different level than most of us. Thier setups doesn't neccessarly always fly with all of our abilities. But why not try.. It's part of the sport One more thing to tinker with!

How is this car going to handle large indoor clay tracks? My main concern really, is breaking parts on tracks with large jumps with the occasional bad landing.

Its not unbreakable, but isn't what I'd consider fragile.

I've broken a front arm thus far (4-5 race/practice days), and was not surprised due to the circumstances.
