They are very similar .. All of the RB6 bodies worked on the Centro... might be the same mold

I would recommend the Schelle because of the replaceable tops in the event you break a ballstud.

So today took my car out for the first time. Did really good besides needing more low end and the motor getting to hot. First outing I was running a 72/29 with timing at 55* on a D4 and it came off the track at 180. Way to hot for me. So I backed off the timing and ran it again and came back at 170-175 but still needed more low end. So I switched back to 69/30 and wow I had more low end with barely less top end. Car came off at 130* with timing at 60* so that was more manageable. I think next I will try to go up to 69/31 and see how it does.

All in all this buggy is super smooth. I was running stock pistons with 30wt all around and stock springs. The tekin rsx esc was super smooth to. Now I just need to figure out more steering for it. Seemed to push a bit with stock settings. I have the esc and rx inline and the battery towards the back in stock configuration. I am going to change front tires from the proline ribbed fronts to a mini pin or something. I did tighten down the slipper all the way to "lock it in to see how it would be like with a eliminator and I liked it.

So now time to order more parts for it!

I've decided that I dont like how my cars handle when they're too light. So I beefed up my lite a bit.



Replaced one of the rear arm mounts.







and swapped out the shorty servo for a full size. gonna shorten the wires tomorrow.







and the finnisher body is a little heavier than the kit body too.

Looking good! Mine sits at 1526. Not sure how everyone is getting it below 1500. Seems like it would be way to light then. I will be getting the slipper eliminator shortly and the ceramic bearings for the trans and cut gears.

I just need to get more steering now!

Also where can I get a fan mount or how have some of you done it for the motor?

Nope, modified stock wing mounts.

Also where can I get a fan mount or how have some of you done it for the motor?

Either dremel the @&$% out of a stock waterfall and shoegoo a fan in it or http://www.shapeways.com/product/U9M...PbVBoC4_Hw_wcB

My first go at a fan in the waterfall, the smaller fans work better than the large one I used here.

Edit: added pic of smaller fan..

Its fine and lasts a lot longer than the fan does. Just make sure you clean everything good with some alcohol or something to get any oil off the parts.

Only draw back to the shapeways waterfall is with the fan on the only body that clears it nice is the Finnisher, imo.
