Sorry if this was discussed earlier. Looking at getting some Kashima bodies prior to my kit. Is the 6.1 using the standard the 23mm std. bodies in the front and the 31mm in the rear? Or is the rear the 27.5?

B6.1D uses 31mm rear. B6.1 uses 27.5. Both use 23mm fronts.

The new spring options is what I'm most interested in.
Because AE are only offering one step softer than the B6.1D kit White for the V2's I'm hoping the V2 Whites end up equivalent to the V1 Green's.

In Australia we tend to run Green with the V1's. Whites come out rarely when the grip is high than usual.

Im told that the standup transmission holes line up. However to use the new standup on the B6 you will need the B6.1 rear tower, rear camber link and rear bulkhead. Im told the B6 standup will fit the B6.1, I presume it also means that the B6.1 standup will fit the B6. Hope this clarifies.

Looking at the quoted rates of the rears as an example, the new green springs are rated softer than the old blacks. As soon as I get hold of the new springs I will do some back to back on our tracks and let you know.

Off-set should be identical, so as long as the thread on the stub axle is long enough, you should be fine. This is what I like about the Avid Satellite wheels, they fit on all the different platforms.

Losi wheels are .75-1.00mm wider depending on the manufacturer

working and being the same offset as the stock wheels isn't necessarily the same

Looking at the car, you could cut the end of the side rail off and mount it there.

Any official word yet as to when this will be available for purchase? Also kind of wonder if one should not wait till the first batch is gone that way they can hopefully fix any small issues like there always seems to be on every new release.

As a stock racer, I never needed a fan on either of my B6D's. My 22 4.0 on the other hand... saw motors go up, and almost lost one of my own, no matter the gearing.

A fan will only fit in the normal spot if you run the lockout. A fan will still fit in other places. If fan mounting position is the biggest worry, I think this is a winner.
