my rear shocks are mounted the standard way in the kit, not the optional mount where they go on the INSIDE of the tower/car

any feedback as to why shocks on the inside of the tower are better than outside? still havent ran this truck yet will be going to the track this weekend its a carpet track btw

Inside of the shock tower has helped on carpet. Rear mount is typically used to add grip on a low grip surface

Less traction (loose dirt) also = lower viscosity. Lower motor wind (like 6.5 mod motor) = higher viscosity, and likewise more traction (carpet) = higher viscosity. I would say overall range is probably 3000 to 15000... https://www.amainhobbies.com/team-as...453215?v=18319
depends also on track size and how much ď driveĒ forward you want the truck to have. Too thick and it will overdrive the front adversely effecting steering. Trucks with gear diffs in general do need thicker oil. My truck has 2 gear 10k setup for it, and itís money on a smallish high bite carpet track.

Third wasn't quite as extreme, but it was the first track day using it and the rear post holes blew out leaving a huge hole.
I stand corrected on these and will revise my comment.

everything about the F2 is bad lol....

This is totally the truth. I didn't finish a single qualifier yesterday due to these parts

The more grip you race on the more your steering needs to be aluminum. My outdoor cars are all stock. My carpet ones run all aluminum.

i understand the t6.1 team kit comes with "layback"

I was told laydown is ideal for carpet.

https://www.amainhobbies.com/team-as...c91791/p742858

is this part here what I need to switch to laydown? Is there anything else required to do this besides this part or do i need to buy a diff gera setup or something

Greetings all. Purchased a B6.1D yesterday. Should arrive in a day or two. Been out of the hobby for about 25 years. The most modern of my 5 cars and trucks is a Losi XX. Actually my RC10 GT could be a little newer. Sorry if this is the wrong place to post but I looked for a "introduce yourself" type thread and couldn't find one. Cheers

You also need the larger idler gear (91716), everything else crosses over between the two.

If running on high bite you would be advised to go for a gear diff as the ball diff, although ok in a buggy, can't really handle the extra torque loading from the larger truck tires on surfaces like carpet and astro.

I got the gear diff installed already , so just buy that laydown enclosure and a diff idler gear and it's good to go?

I'll have to buy the same for the buggy next

Yes. Here is a link that you might find particularly useful.

To be honest, layback vs laydown is not going to make a difference in your case. Having the right tires, a decent setup and practice will mean a lot more.

great, sorry if this sounds stupid first question after opening that is how do I know if i have a 3 gear or 4 gear? I would think 4 gear based on whats in the diff (gear) however thats probably not what they are referring to and Im confused.

thanks in advance
