No, you have to provide them if you want to use them.

Hello. I have copied Tebos ZX6 CRCRC setup with UM713 rear arms. I have the rb6 1.4 sway bar and rb6 rear stabilizer mount and also drilled the new inside hole on arm. Iím having issues with the shock and sway bar mount rubbing when all assembled. Its close but remains clear with factory inside hole. Am I using the correct parts? Something I'm not doing? Thanks.

I had a similar problem. I ended up just bending the sway bar just enough to clear. Seems to work just fine.

Thank you. I bent it a little and seemed to help. May trim excess also.

Default WTB ZX6 for an MP9 TKI3E

I have a MP9 TKI3E with an RX* and a Tekin T8 1950. Car was used a handful of times. I want to focus on 1/10th scale and I have an RB6. Looking to workout a deal for a ZX6 in great condition. I have two bodies, skid plate, wheels and tires. I bought it brand new and have kept it in perfect condition.

Let me know.

Got a couple race days on the new car now,

Getting better and the more I drive it the more I like it. Just installed the gear diffs, very impressed with them. Started with 4k f/r for now. Feels good on the bench, but won't know for sure until I can get out to the track for a practice day.

I did find that when I first shimmed the diffs in the case, I thought I had them just right. Had a little backlash and was pretty happy. Got things all back together and had a horrible bind. After a few times of checking different things and pulling things back apart, I had shimmed the ring gear too far and both diffs were hitting/rubbing the case. Lesson learned I guess. Shimmed the diffs a little tighter in the mesh and the bind was gone. So hopefully once things wear in a little bit, things will free up enough to be good to go for a while.

I'll see if I can get a pic or two up for the sway bar mount I fabbed up to use the zx5/6 sway bar and rb6 rear arms. So far the lower arm mount seems to be working well.

The mount I fabbed up so I could use the RB6 rear arm and the stock ZX5/6 sway bar wasn't too hard to do. I probably could have made it look a lot nicer, but it gets the job done. I tried to use the stock sway bar ball cups with the stock sway bar and RB6 rear arm, but I didn't like the bind it had or the angle the sway bar links sat. Now they sit just about right where they need to be and I have room to adjust the sway bar preload, where before I couldn't.

Parts used:
RB6 plastic shock mount with flange trimmed to fit the inside of the Rb6 arm
Short shock rod end, was almost the exact right height as the short ball cup.
Button head screw, just long enough to hit the rear arm webbing or a mill short of that. Didn't measure the screw length, maybe 12mm long I think.

I trimmed the RB6 shock mount to kind of key in to the rear arm webbing triangle to help keep the mount in the right position when I went to put the screw in from the front of the arm. I spent more time trying to trim the shock mount down enough than it took me to put it all together.

Hope guys like it and maybe it'll help guys that want to run the RB6 rear arm on the ZX6 and make it easier to use the sway bar.

Note:
I do have the 3rd option shock mount hole already drilled on the arm, but haven't used that hole yet to say for sure if using that hole will have the shock and sway bar hit each other. Just from looking at it, it'll be very close if they don't hit/rub when using that hole. I'll have to check that.

After my note in my last post I decided I'd check the clearance on the sway bar linkage and rear shock spring if you use the option drilled hole for the rear shock on the RB6 arms.

At full droop, the linkage clears the shock spring by 1-1.5mm and at ride height to full compression the linkage clears the shock spring by 3-5mm. Clearance shouldn't be an issue for guys using the RB6 arms with the 3rd shock mount hole drilled in the arms if they opt to mount the sway bar as I did with the RB6 arms on the ZX6.

Hope that'll help some guys out.

I saw some people have tried it, but what is the benefit to the RB6 arms and new lower shock mounting hole?

Is it to lesson side bite and have more power out of corners? All while using same spring rate?
