definatley like the inline better. now have inline and x-factory chassis and still good. only problem is that it is so light, 9.5 motor feels like a 6.5...lol

Doesn't sound like much of an advantage then.

There is no advantage, if there was, you would see the team drivers using it.

I have only seen 1 guy try it and like it. I think most everyone in my locale tried it and we all went back to the sideways battery with the ESC up against it. Either that or the kit setup which works just fine IMO

From Tebo's facebook page. "RB6 is dialed today at KCRC."
Losi is stuck with inline because of their chassis but with all the side weight they add they are trying to simulate a wider weight to the chassis. If you watch Cavaliera drive with the standard chassis you realize that practice is all we all really need to go faster.

I tried my electronics 3 different ways and I always preferred the kit setup with some slight modification to move the ESC further back. Car reacts quickly but is still very stable

Got a small request for those who already have the stock shocks off the car already...

Could anyone measure from the middle of the cap eyelet to the bottom rod end eyelet and let me know the distance in millimeters? For front and rear shocks...

Thanks again and much appreciated.

by stock do you mean the kit setup as far as limiters and having the eyelet screwed on all the way?

I have enjoyed my inline setup. I found, for me, that the car seems to be much more controllable when it rotates.
I always felt that the MM car had a ton of grip, until it broke loose. Then it would rotate too fast for my taste.
I changed to a inline, it seems to have slowed down this rotation once the car breaks loose.

It also seems that with the bracing cut out, I have more flex and thus, more grip.

I wouldnt say that my lap times are any better, they not any worse... But I feel that the car is easier to drive.

As far as the team drives, what I hear is that the team drivers started to do it, but AE requested they keep in the stock trim... I am not sure how true this is, but it is the talk around our tracks.

My thoughts, I am sure that we have a time and a place when the inline would be better... Sometimes the standard would be better. I have my car setup to run either way. I have only raced indoor at this point, on wet clay with TONS of grip. I plan to do some outdoor, wet, much lower grip, and maybe I will be going back to the standard layout... Not sure yet.

I run inline and love it. I've found the car feels like it jumps a little better and is slightly easier to control in flight. The balance feels awesome and it allows me to get out of a corner a little faster since the roll isn't as severe. It generally feels like a little bit better car.

Those running in line, Battery back esc front, or battery forward, esc behind? I run astro indoors exclusively. So lots of grip. Sweeping corners I could see battery forward giving more steering on power being helpful. But, not sure how buggy would fly mid jump. 17.5 stock class. Also looking at ways to drop 40 grams.

most guys run battery up front esc in back i found that i get much less chassis roll with inline set-up which works well on indoor clay tracks i race on, has anyone tried .5 rear hub spacers? tried them yesterday when track was loose and seem to give the car more rear traction.
