The shocks were leaning back a little on the rear so fitted the longer shock bushings, looks loads better now

I had a question on the weight of the car, here is Willís xb2 with a full size servo and full size shorty lipo in it
and stock xb2 parts (no titanium etc)

Iíll weigh my 6.1 version once itís finished

Wired up, excuse the electrics and lipo, Iíll replace this with a antenna less Rx and a nice low profile servo

Iíll do a one can wonder shell and get a new one custom painted in my colours

I had a question of this conversion can be build from a B6 and the answer it yes!

I have done this and these are the parts I used:




B6.1 slipper innner and outer
B6.1 slipper spring
B6.1 top shaft
Rear front C block - I used a jconcepts one
B6.1 spur gear
​​​​​​​
The front end just bolts on and you'll need the slipper parts as above and the B6 diff is a perfect fit in the willspeed gearbox

I had a question on the weight of the chassis compared to the stock B6.1 chassis and Iím pleased to report back itís lighter than the stock chassis

Standard B6.1 chassis with side rails is 240g

Willspeed B6 chassis 190g 😀

As per picture of Wills xb2 RF2 itís under 1500g with a full size lipo and servo, so with a low profile servo and lipo itíll be under weight and good to tune for the stock racer

I wanted to make up a low profile battery mount for the RF2

You can see the part numbers below and should be easy to get hold of

The carbon tabs are from a Mi7 Schumacher touring car but you can buy the exotek tabs on there own
