Looking good. No if I could just mount the motor non-transverse, I'd be happy.

Was hoping for an Exotek chassis to come out for the Evo6

I now have four! Three to race, one for parts.

I love that black car. Anyone who knows me in real life, knows how much I love the color black.

But I won't be buying the black car.

Hi guys --- posted this as a separate thread but realized this would be the place to ask:

I've been very involved with building out Mini-zs (my only on road exp.) & 1/10 Shortcourse kits (Proline, Tekno, LOSI)

I've been wanting to build a TB EVO 6 and have seen that the transverse motor mount is a bit of a downside?

Any advice on this class before I make the purchase?

Am I going to want aftermarket/upgraded servos, motors etc. as I do with the Short Course truck builds? I spent almost double the amount of the truck in option parts for my Tekno SCT410

I just figured this was the most hopped up out of the box and coming from shaft driven trucks, I would like to go the TB route unless there is compelling evidence from you guys as to why I should not. I have loved Tamiya as a model builder over the years ---I'm set on that manufacturer, just looking for thoughts on the EVO 6 I guess, vs other TB EVOs like the IV (which I saw in the box new on ebay)

Motor and esc all depend on the class you are running. The Evo6 is great with a 17.5 motor.

For a servo, you want a low profile servo. There are a lot around. I like the Sanwa's but there lots of others

Thanks for the info ------- whats tops quality in the 17.5 class and esc?

Can I use my futaba 4pksr with a futaba 614 rx just as I do with my SCT's?

Whats the fastest low pro servo with Ti gears that will fit well? Does Futaba make them?

Thanks for all the help in advance ------

http://www.amain.com/team-orion-vort...r-175t/p260239

or this combo? I love Tekin ESC's and motors in my SCT's so I'm assuming this would be a good option?

?

I run a Futaba 9551 almost exclusively. They are fast and, most importantly to me, hold center.

I have used the futaba bls551 (it's supposed to be the same) but don't like it. It's too sensitive on making small adjustments near the center. The new replacement to that piece is supposed to be programable. I talked to the Futaba guy at IIc but I didn't ask him why I'd want to program a servo when the 9551 works so awesome.

Also, what bodies (MM?) fit and look scale (I've seen some that make the rear wheels look like they are lost inside the wheelwell) & what are my rim/tire options (manufacturer & size)

http://www.ebay.com/itm/190mm-custom...87578816&rt=nc


Would that work/look scale with the TB-06? I would want it to line up with the wheels perfectly if possible

I saw they are 24mm - 0 offset ?

Figure out what class you are going to race and on what surface. For me, the best handling bodies look the best.

Normally, I'm a Tamiya Championship Series racer so I run those. On carpet, I run the now obsolete 05 NSX. On asphalt, I'm inclined to run the AudiR8. The Protoform Camero is the best open GT body that is 190mm, but I can only run it very occasionally because of class rules.

In sedan, I run an old protoform Mazda 6 on carpet, and a LTCR on asphalt.

The most foolproof way to choose a body is find somebody fast and just copy what they do.

Thanks for all the great info - so any 190mm body will work as far as fit though? I see all these width/length measurements but not sure of the dimension requirements.

Is there a build thread or sticky for tips on building the kit?
