Thanks for this! Quick question can you use the rear tower from the b6 or are the holes different? I thought the difference was the thickness.

Ran my D kit setup on outdoor dirt yesterday ( flipout/holeshot track) , had a brass D and 43g
Under lipo weight.
Didn't do too bad, have v2 green springs and brass C coming, Interested to see if anyone else has had luck with the lay back on proper dirt.

B6.1 tower is around 1mm shorter and bottom wholes are narrower according to guy who wrote earlier. I haven't compare mine. You can use it with little modification and adjust ride height I guess.

Well my son placed "first in the stock A Main" yesterday at OCRC raceway in Huntington Beach. He ran the B6.1D with the layback transmission and everything was "box stock". He ran the new Tekin Redline Gen 3 17.5 with a Just Stock Hobby Wing ESC. His starting position in the A Main was 12th after bumping up from the B Main. Here is a copy of the race link from Live RC.

Wow...awesome man! Great success for him personally, and the B6.1 platform in general. And cool to hear that it was with the layback gearbox. I'll be running my B6.1D on high-bite indoor dirt, and was wondering if I should order the laydown gearbox and idler, but hearing good early success stories with the layback, like your son's makes me think I should give the kit setup a good shot first.

Thanks for posting man, and very cool A main win with the new car for your son!

I'm using spacer it should give more traction on rear but I can't feel difference...

Will the B6D Schelle rear alum hubs work on the B6.1?

Have you ever raced rc cars before? If so how long ago? Because if you are brand new, you are worrying way too much about things that will have zero impact on your ability to get your B6.1D around the track. A stock B6.1D will in no way hold you back, you need to drive it the way it is, and learn to drive.

If you are not new, and just coming back from a long break there is no way you will feel held back by a box stock B6.1D either. When you can run .5 of a second off of your fastest lap for an entire race with a box stock, kit setup B6.1D, then you can make adjustments and start with the aftermarket upgrades. Build the kit perfectly, put the right tires on it for your track, and give it a shot. I guarantee your driving will hold back your stock B6.1D, not the other way around.

when i read that it was going to have a shorter chassis than the B6 series, i was expecting something like they did in the past where they did 4-7mil or more lengthening on the old B4 series to deal with bigger outdoor tracks. figured they would do something more noticeable when it was touted as being shorter, but do notice now many times it's no longer mentioned in features list as it was weeks back.
