Why would Tamiya decide to continue using a transverse motor mount when these inline ones like the Exotek are so much better?

I had high hopes for an exo inline motor chassis! Not fond of all the gears involved in the evo chassis.

Makes no sense. I would have purchased it had it been an inline motor.

It would be nice if they include the aluminum lower gearbox in the 6ms kit. It will be interesting to see how they look and how much they weigh compared to stock. I like at least having an aluminum lower gearbox to not worry about stripping the gear box during maintenance. Yes an aluminum upper would be nice, but only if it incorporated the shock tower mounts as well.

Lol! Have to buy two kits. The evo6 and exo6! Good luck trying to order both at the same time. One kit is usually out when you want to buy. Almost cheaper to piece out a complete car vs. buying the two kits. I will be using my exo for now!

Meh, not interested in EVO 6 MS.
Why is everyone so disappointed? EXO 6 took all the problem away from the EVO 6.

Btw, has anyone driven the EXO 6 Aluminium chassis? Any reports?
I'm thinking to snap one only because they're cheap!

What is the part number for the spec r gear diff? Or does Tamiya sell a gear diff kit vs buying all the parts separate?

Alright found the spec r diff for the TB03. For those guys running it, are you running the stock pinion gear in the gear box? Or a different one. Is anyone running a spec r front diff and a stock rear diff.

Running the 39 tooth Spec r diff in front with a 40t stock rear diff would give the car front over drive. I remember this as a tuning option on the old Losi JRXS. Can't remember what it was supposed to do though? Thoughts?

I need to try them both!!!!!!!

The original evo6 has sway bars. They just put a large one piece collar instead of the two smaller ones.

I'm using spec r diffs on all of my EVO's front and rear.
I personally find them smoother to run.

But I don't use the spec r out drives, all of my diffs are molded to use Tamiya out drives with 3.5mm blades.
