I got a B6D for Christmas and I use it three times only and the B6.1 is already here. That is my destiny

The b6d comes with a 3 gear stand up trans, if you want a 4 gear you need to buy a b5m. AE is going to have a 3 gear stand up for the 6.1d but you might be better off just buying a b6d for a loose track.

they sell a 4 gear kit for the B6d as well so you don't need a b5m

Need to figure out what extra parts to sell with my B6 and what to keep to use in the B6.1. Think the current B6 weight inserts(steel/aluminum) will work in the new B6.1 chassis or will we need to get new inserts?

Nobody knows for sure, but in all likelihood, all the upgrades from the front of the car up to the gearbox will work for the new car. New chassis is a scammy way to deter people from doing conversions instead of buying a new car. Maybe scam is too harsh of a word but 3mm difference and a few new holes for the gearbox hardly justifies the cost in my opinion.

Shocks, pretty much the entire front clip and steering parts, rear tower, chassis weights (although it appears the 6.1 will come with the chassis weights in the box)

Default Diff Height/Gear Boxes

When the diff height is changed, the idler gear does not need to move. It is a true quick change diff height.

There are 3 new gear boxes for the b6.1 (3-gear stand up, Laydown, and Layback). All of them have a quick change diff and all of them allow the shocks to be ran on the front.

Depends on your budget. Personally, I'm setting up my daughter with a used B6d because for $200 less, she won't be able to tell the difference for a very long time. By then, the .2 will be out.

What they are referring to is that the diff cannot merely move straight up or down. It will only be meshed perfectly at one location. Above or below that the diff has to move slightly forward as well to maintain proper gear mesh as it has to move along an arc from the center of the idler. Do the inserts have this feature built in?

I read they intentionally left this out of the inserts, that way people will strip out idler gears and have to buy extra parts.

Of course they accounted for it in the inserts!!!!

I know what they are referring to but if you place the idler gear in the center of the diff height range and then go 1.5mm up or down from there, the gear mesh changes by 0.05mm. Holding calipers up to the light at 0.05mm will show this is not an issue.

Does anyone know if there will be any kind of upgrade kit made available from the B6/B6D? Or does that seem pretty unlikely?

Rivkin said in the JC video they will not have a conversion kit.

Just by looking at pictures I came up with the chart attached. As you can see full conversion is close to the 6.1 price. This is just for B6 not B6D.
