So besides the motor mount, what's the difference? Will it come with the aluminum lower bulkheads?

So basically it's a shaft-driven TRF419. That's cool, though I have to say the TA-07's serpentine-belt drive looks more intriguing to me from a technical perspective.

Hi Guys,
there was a LRP Challenge Race this weekend in austria on a low grip tarmac surface. i started once again with my Exo6 in a 17,5T blinky race with 4,5 FDR .

I had to chance a few things to get the car work good for me
1.) i changed from Spool to Gear Diff in the front with 1.000.000 Oil (It was a very tricky course and just a few straights.
2.) to get more grip on the rear i went to the 6th Hole for the rear dampers.
3.) I switched from pink to green kokomo Springs in the front (very hard)
4.) Front Block changed from B to C , to get 0,5 degree angle

This helped me made it to the podium.
once again, during a 12 minutes A Main, my nervs weren't the best , that i did two mistakes each run, but thats me, and still i am happy about the performance of the xo 6 in this class !!

cheers
Flo

It depends on the Track . Some do , some not.
In this case , this club wasn't doing anything ;-)
But it's ok , as every driver has the same conditions ..

This new model doesn't look all that different to the old one. I doubt it's going to make much of a difference.

From what I have read, if you run the Exotek conversion, there really isn't any difference.

Where did you see that info? I know they are making aluminum lowers, but I can't find where they are included. I did see that the upper aluminum shock mount is different. But it only appears they changed the type of screw used to mount it to the upper bulkhead.

If the new aluminum lower bulkhead is included, that would be great, but I am sure it will also be reflected in the price.

Wishful thinking

Looks like they are in stock at Tamiya
