Default My ZX6

Hi
This is my ZX6 purchased as roller and added electrics.

I wanted to wire up the ESC as close to motor as possible, try to keep balance optimal and using pics as reference from this thread and on internet.

It still has not been run yet but ready. Hope to go to a track tonight.

ZX6 with some carbon bits
V2 hubs
Lunsford turnbuckles and ball studs (so much easier after installed to use)

Tekin RXS
Tekin 7.5
Savox Servo
Reedy Shorty 4100mh 60c

The car was missing servo horn so i had to hack savox head to fit, i didnt like the servo on other side so i moved it using steering turnbuckle heads to lengthen to fit.
I hope to fine tune steering over time.

I have been out of RC buggies for almost 20 yrs big learning curve so far.

servo infront of motor
speedo/receiver/shorty all on right side of car
car seems very balanced and am going on tue to test it out
just would like some opinions on how the car handles
track had ridiculous traction and am using slicks
med size track with a few nice jumps

thanks
Well.... Kit setup on high grip feels edgy and nervous, it actually scared the crap out of me the first time I drove it, way too aggressive. I have settled on Tebo's latest setup and now the car is a blast to drive. Once the car is calmed down a bit it is much easier to drive hard.

here's a link to the setup. You pretty much have to tear the whole car down but it is well worth it.

So would you suggest this Setup for highgrip ? Even the Motor Position? because it says wet in this sheet i don`t know if this is going to make any difference so far?

Or what "Lineup" would you suggest?

from my experience this setup is good for high grip as long as it is indoor clay. This setup worked well for me when many buggies were running slicks.

Associated or Losi will work. Sometimes the piston isn't as thick so you might have to add a very thin washer to take up some play.

Gotcha. Will order today. Gear diffs will drop this afternoon. Coming from a B44.3, think I will try 7 up front, 5 in the rear. If it feels to stuck will drop rear to 3k. Track was recently rebuilt so slicks are the only things hooking up right now.

Are you asking what is needed to run the rb6 arms on the rear of the zx6?

If yes,
UM713 or UM713B (3 hole arm)
UM561 Outer rear hingepin
UM603 rear hub spacers, aka drive washer set

I think that is is. You might not need the UM603 hub spacers but I thought I would mention it.
