Has anyone tried to install either X-ray xb4, d413, b44.3 center diff in the car. Maybe one will actually fit?

After taking a good look at the car, it's almost impossible to fit a center diff. Hopefully a future update to the car will allow us to get it. The only way I see it is if u drill holes in the chassis.

Something seriously wrong with this car! It is soooo far off, it's not even funny!

I loved the zx5, but did Shin design the zx6? Then got the ass....and you wonder why

Maybe it's just the setup, I had the xb4 and the d413. This car is so much better.

When I first got the ZX6 I hated it with the factory setup. Now I'm running something close to Tebo's setup and it's pretty good now.

How is the durability with this buggy? My RB6 seems pretty tough for a two wheel. I have seen the ZX6 break on some pretty easy hits but I want to hear from you guys that have had it for a while.

In my honest opinion the durability of this buggy is not that great. I have raced pretty much the whole winter one day a week and I have broken quite a few parts.... But the good, once you have the buggy setup for your style of driving it is AWESOME!!!!! I finally have mine setup perfectly for me. It would be tough for me to switch brands now just because of durability.

No issues with mine. It has been very dependable even with my lack of talent.

I ran mine for the 1st time today. I was able to get the setup pretty damn good. Only down side was that my aluminum rear hubs didn't get here in time for my race today. I broke one as I new I would. I didn't crash, The track I ran on has some large jumps and the bite is pretty high. It has a big double and the landing is in the corner. I was landing it with no issues but had to kind of land it angled into the corner. That load snapped the rear hub after a little while. The aluminum hubs will fix that. It broke right around the rear bearing as I can see it would.

As for handling, This car handles incredible. The shocks are the best I have seen and the car handles high speed corners like nothing else. It just absorbs everything. I have both the ZX6 and XB4. I feel they both drive great. This car drives better when you push it. The XB4 is more forgiving but doesn't absord bumps in high speed areas as good as the ZX6. Overall, I can do well with both cars. I like the feel of the ZX6 a little better, I like the durability of the Xray better. I only have about 5 packs through the car so far but I was laying down the fastest laps at the track I went to today. It was my 1st time running at this track and I was able to lay down the fastest laps of anyone. I just didn't get to finish after losing my rear hub. I will be getting the car up and running again soon so I can get the car fully dialed it. Its close but not there yet. I feel I will be faster with this car over my beloved XB4. Reguardless, Im keeping them both.lol My XB4 is my tried and true.

I went to a white rear spring and a thicker swaybar to keep the role of the car the same. It helped with mine stepping out. I'm also running the stock Pistons with 32.5 front and 27.5 rear.

Anyone try motor forward with just a shorty and not saddles? If so, feedback? I just switched my car to this configuration and will be giving it a try Sunday. Any feedback appreciated.
