doesn't matter which color idler gear. It will strip with the AE Factory Direct Drive. .. especially 13.5 in carpet
The Schelle lockout works. and it's the same price.

Yes on the longer rear shocks (they are stock on the B6.1D), and no on the brass c-block.

might be a stupid question but I hate spending money only to have to mod something, but does the current B6 chassis protectors fit the 6.1's wasn't sure where they actually shortened the chassis at if it's just overall length right off the back no big deal but if it were out of the middle it could affect it more in some areas.

they fit. minor trimming from the back is all you need to do

I was very impressed with how responsive the car was. Corner exits were super impressive. My biggest complaints are the ball cups, especially on the steering links, even with chap stick and dry wax I managed to pop them off the steering links a few times. When assembling the turnbuckles I was worried about it after how easily they snapped into the ball studs. A buddy at the track recommended the b5m cups, so Iíll give those a try. My only other complaints are motor mount fan locations. I tried to mount the fan in the left rear next to the slipper spring ďclearing the slipper lock nut by maybe 2.5-3mmĒ and that only lasted a few runs. I saw a few recommendations in earlier posts, any other options or ideas would be greatly appreciated. Overall Iím very happy with the car, easy to drive with responsive tuning.
So I am on the fence I have the xb2 18 and itís quick but looking at the b6.1 they just look a little more planted but my Xray is on the pace....itís just a thing I want to try,so what is better on the b6.1 than the xb2

Here's my contribution to the ongoing search for a good way to mount a fan on this car. This is a 30mm fan, identical (I think) to the popular WTF fan:



That's an old XRAY TC servo post on a lengthened side rail attachment screw. The servo posts on the current XRAY TCs are similar, as are many others. I was in a hurry so I made the fan adapter from Lexan sheet; when I have time I'll use the Lexan adapter as a template to make one from 2mm carbon fiber. (You can see cracks already starting to form in the Lexan after one day's running at Die Hard RC, our local outdoor turf track.)

The second view shows how the top of the fan tilts in a little toward the motor. The XRAY servo mount isn't quite secure on its screw; I'll fix this by taking a little material off the bottom and putting a *thin* nut there. If that isn't sufficient I'll attach the other side of the fan (just one corner will do) to the unused battery mount boss nearby.

You can also see the little angle-Lexan support for the rear of the body. I always used this on the B6 and just brought it over.
I'm using my old B6 body too, as you can tell from the covered-over intake holes for the B6's fan position. The old slipper-adjustment hole on the other side makes a handy exit for the air flowing over the motor.

I made some long runs with the car geared for racing, TSR 17.5 motor, and the motor got up to about 135 which I'm fine with.

MarkBrown, if your motor is coming off at 135į with a fan blowing on it, the inside of your motor is probably just as disgusting as the rest of your car.

​​​​​​​Have you never heard of an air compressor?

The fan held up great using a servo mount with a longer screw in the rear brace hole. There were no issues with slipper or fan making contact and the fan did a great job cooling the motor.

Is this the best place for a fan mount so far?

It was the best location for me, it also has worked very well for people that glued them to their B6 chassis (similar location) and the body fitment isn't an issue.

I have taken the chassis brace out and used a fan between the motor and the battery, stuck it down with a bit of double sided tape. 30mm and 40mm fits.

so is the fan sticking out of the body? Did you cut your body for this? What body are you using?
