just trim slowly...it doesn’t take a lot but you can easily go overboard.

I had to cut a silly amount for it to fit the lay down...

B6.1d arriving in a couple days. Have 2 choices for electronics.
a) 510r/8.0 m3 Reedy/1206 servo
b) rs gen 2/gen3 8.5/T130 servo.

Not sure what to build with. One set will go back in my Sc5m. Until I can rob another bank and get the sc6.

Any thoughts? Thx.

Got my kit last night Mr UPS finally showed up, and started the build got it about 80% done. I am going to run 17.5 stock with it, but I am not going to go crazy on the gearing, timing and only charge my batteries as recommended I do not over charge like some do I want my stuff to last. Since the kit came with only one spur gear and I have to buy one what should I get the manual recommends a 72 but I have seen where some recommend a 69-70 I race at The Ohio RC Factory and EN Hobbies (old Sparks Park) in Ohio if anyone has been there and knows a good start point I'd appreciate the info. So far I really like the kit been flawless going together so far, that whole lay back trans and rear shock tower setup is built like a brick and is very solid IMO.

I remember reading that the Direct drive kit could use The old school Kimbrough spur gears. They do fit the gear hub, but you cant tighten the nut against the gear because of the big hole in the gear. Am I missing something?

The nut holds the aluminum plate the gear bolts to onto the shaft, it's not designed to hold the gear on.

Get a 69 spur gear and 30 tooth pinion. You can use a pinion from 29 to 31 tooth depending on layout. This is good for 17.5 motor

I understand what you're saying but you're misunderstanding. I'll take a photo of it tonight to help explain.

Gearing depends heavily on the motor, and the version of the motor. Don't take any advise on gearing unless the person you are getting it from knows what motor you are running.

Is there a difference in internal gearing compared to the B6? The 72t spur being included vs the 69 is a bit strange. Unless they are gearing it (no pun intended) toward the new motors that like to rev a lot.
