Cars a keeper for me. Tonnes of steering and still hooks up crazy on throttle pulls. Durability is at least as good as the xray (without the shitty pinion issues) and definitely seems like a keeper.

The first heat (never ever driven the car before) I shaved half a second a lap off the xrays time. Car had hella steering so was super inconsistent but it has a lot of potential with a few practice/setup days, just the factory setup with orange fronts and white rears everything else stock.

The setup from the manual as I built her up. Stock front pills, CC in RF and FF out RR and also rb6 rear arms I had spare from my mod 2wd. Stock roll centers antisquat caster etc. 30 and 25 losi oils 1.6 kit pistons medium shock ends all 4. Ride height 21 front and 21 in the front spot in the rear (as per sheet). I always set my throttle return speed on the radio to be exponential, helps keep corner speed up and braking seems better to me. Never run drag brakes.

Track is super high bite with small twisty section with one long straight. Only had a 8.5 motor in the car and it was enough. Love the way it drives!

I also added the front pin (which goes through the slot in the diff screw as per manual), to calm her down and it helped a lot. Without it the car was too nervous for me. Front diff is tight as possible, rear is looser (can't quantify it like gear diffs but went by feel).
Running skinny shorty (150 grams), burned 1700mah in a 6 min main with 5 laps of warm up so not too shabby (car is efficient). RTR 1620 grams. Car does not need any upgrades at all can't praise that part enuff!!

haha don't beat me up for it, but I never ran the stock arms so cannot say. I like my arms to be parallel to the ground/dogbones when I do ride height changes (the stocks won't let you do that) - I know dumb reason lolz.

you do have to use longer shock ends than you use with the flat arms though since the shock mount pt is lower with gull wings.

Post drive shaft length

Guys,

Could some one please measure the length of both centre shafts, i need pin to pin, and over all if possible.

Reason is i have a DB4 converted zx5. which is the same as having the motor at the front on the zx6, but i am running saddle packs. May be thinkng of doing shorty conversion when i get chance.

any help you can give is great

can put some pics up if you want to see a post ZX5, pre ZX6 car

Cheers

Question for the guys running the rb6 arms on the rear. How is everyone mounting the swaybar on the arms?? The rb6 arms don't have the stud molded in.

One friend mounted the plastic balls by cutting them from flat arms, drilling them and using a set screw. I used a threaded ball I had from a touring car with a set screw on the outside of the arm. Think it was this guy http://www.spec-r.com/default/index....roducts_id=413 to get it as close to the arm as possible.

Alternatively can use the http://www.amain.com/Kyosho-48mm-Low...Stud-4/p151052 to get it as snug to the arm as possible.

If you want factory then get the rb6 sway bar mount.

Use KYOUMW708-01 when you run rb6 rear arms if you want to run sway bars also.

I finally raced this at a club meeting yesterday and had as blast with it.
The only thing was the rear end just wanted to squat down so much that the weight transfer from front to rear was massive and unsettled the car.

Not sure what I'll try first to adjust this out a bit.
I'm running kit set up with 35WT/3x1.4 front and 30WT/2x.1.6 rear plus shorty battery and rear motor

Try 40wt/2x1.6 front with yellow front springs.

I think it's more to do that the rear is too soft but I'll give your suggestion a go as I'm always up to try what people suggest.

I'm also going to put RB6 rear arms on to see what they are like so I have two questions for those who have.
Did you shim it 2mm to the front of the inner rear hinge pin?
With UMW708-01 I have all those parts but does what is the length of the button head screws in it?
