As they did not mention them in the press release probably yes. As I think they are some small parts that make a real difference I added some machined ones to my B6.1 order from the start...

The corner speed on the SC6.1 will make it a beast.

Will the full laydown from the b6.1 fit? I assume it will be needed for carpet?

I believe they mentioned on Facebook that the chassis accepts a laydown transmission without modifications as well.

I would assume the SC6.1 has the same rear chassis drill pattern as the B6.1...it should accommodate all "6.1" options.

It's not an exaggerated statement when it's true. Look how much better the B6 was over the B5. People weren't hanging up their 6's to run 5's.

On carpet the b5m is no match for the b6.

People upgrade cars for the most minute of changes, that doesn't factor into it. "Better" does not equal "not comparable". The latter is, in fact, hyperbole. If all the comparative praise new models tend to get was taken as literal improvements, we'd have laptimes at least twice as fast compared to ten years ago. But, surprise surprise, they're not.

With AE it usually does. I don't think you understand how important tenths really are in this hobby.

This is getting funny.. you obviously can compare the two. He was making a crack that you stated you can't compare them, but if you drive them both and one is better you have already compared them.

-Edit - I don't even know why I commented - so just ignore me haha.

Thanks for moderating! This is the thread about the ShortCourse 6.1 and not the SemanticsCar 6.1 after all.
Back on topic: What bodies have SC regulars used in the last few years? Is it the JC Hi-Flow still the most popular choice or has it been replaced by the HF2 or others?

Default Wheels?

I see the kit won’t come with any wheels but does anyone know which offset is likely to be needed?

Pretty sure the old truck came with the narrow wheels so +3 rims are needed as currently with my other brand I run 0 offset wheels and was hoping not to need to change wheels

I've found no documentation to confirm what I'm saying, but it is unlikely that AE changed the offset from what fits the SC5M.
