With mixed track conditions from high grip to "dusty" due to a farmer cultivating his field next to the track during qualifying on Saturday the EXO6 handled the changes very well. I used the alloy chassis for the event and it proved to be very responsive to setup changes.
There were a few bumpy areas on the track that the chassis handled well. The car's initial corner entry was awesome and it carried corner speed throughout all types of turns. Forward traction was very noticeable as always with the lightened drive train I run that has be discussed in detail on other posts. There were all types of "modern" chassis competing from ARC, Xray, Awesomatix and Yokomo that it outperformed. Thanks Mike R and Exotek for breathing life into a working man's affordable shaft drive car that can compete with the best!
Hey Lee, Congrats on your RRGT win yesterday at the BFTR X.
Lots of great battles on that hotly contested class.
Exo6 FTW!

Thanks Jeff, the battle with Paul Dabao was so much fun! Always a great time competing against such a good driver and class act. Will post my Pivot Head vid's on You Tube shortly of the battles with a link here.

What are your guys thoughts on drilling holes in the shock caps?

From my experience, holes in the shock caps make it easier to set rebound to your preference.

With bladder shocks, don't holes in the caps eliminate the rebound altogether? Or do you mean holes that can be closed afterwards with a set screw?

I'm not really sure. I was reading in other threads that rebound is not even that useful because it prevents the shock oil from doing its job. Is this true?

ErikO, you're correct, I was confused with bleed screws.

New EVO6 MS motormount is definitely a nice improvement over previous design.. miter-gear mesh is much more consistent. (had to add only 0.1 shim to bring it to within "OSherman-spec")

kudos to Tamiya for addressing the issue. looking forward to some track time with it..



....to be continued

Quick question ... Before I start building, does anyone know how well the blue hiro sieko screws match Tamiya blue? Thinking of getting the titanium and aluminum screw set.

Thank!

I have the Hiro Seiko screw set on my MS. Perfect match to Tamiya blue. The button head screws have a shiny finish. Btw the blue aluminium screws from Square are a match too.

Regards.

Any plans for exo to make the new g blocks in black? I widened the front of both my cars with d blocKS and it worked great. I want to try at least f, but I can only find them in blue. Looking to keep things matching with black.
