You wouldn't make it out of the pits with the clear parts.

lol I was thinking the same thing ... maybe that could be "innovation" item that some people have to have

For me, drop my laptimes over my current car and I'll take that as innovation.

If I get this I'll be coming from a durango dex410v5 where the front end past the center diff is actually a wider plate part of the chassis versus say plastic side pod, anyone know from their experience what kind of handling difference you would see?

Looking forward to more pictures and a list of anything compatible with the B6/B6D (rear arms, etc).

Anybody notice the B5 ball cups, which are labeled L and R, are on the opposite sides when used on this car? I'll assume it has to do with the geometry....Or they just slapped them on for pictures, who knows.

I run them that way on my YZ4, they stick out too far the normal way

He's referring to the fragile nature of the SLA parts.

If you have any experience with SLA, you know it breaks if you look at it the wrong way. Much different than 3D printed with ABS or PLA.

To actually shoot the parts in a clear resin, you'd need to know that on the front end of the tool design, the shrink rates between nylon 6, ABS, and polycarb (clear) are different. The shrink rate of the material is taken into consideration before the metal tool (mold)is cut.

All you RC Tech engineers should know this.

Please leave it clear as an option. Also miss the old days of coloring my own parts!

I just thought for sure that it would have resulted in 4 pages of internet engineers posting about it by now

Wonder if the hole pattern in the chassis allows you to "flip" the center diff 180 and run the front driveshaft in the rear and the rear driveshaft in the front for the purpose of mounting the motor to the front instead of the rear as a tuning option. I see that chassis brace in the "way" but who knows.....

I'm saying this because they designed in the option of mounting the rear shocks fore or aft on the rear arms, perhaps they thought this in since the motor is the single biggest ballast in the car..........

If you look at the B6 angled cups they are marked opposite

Side view indicates it's true dogbones for front and rear driveshafts and not CVA's. awesome! one less thing to maintain. I'm loving the B64 so far
