I have two questions that maybe you can help me with :

1- Are the steering bellcranks/centerplate parts between the B6 and the B6.1 keeping the same geometry?
reason for me asking : I have picked a used B6 in good shape that has all the alloy steering parts, bellcranks and connecting plate. My B6.1 steering plastics are sloppy, and I was thinking about a transplant
The instructions show the bellcranks are the same, but the centerplate seems to have changed ackermann, by providing a more "forward" rack - is that the case indeed?




2-Can someone recommend a decently prized alloy servo arm (KO-sanwa), ideally available at Amain ?
I am not hung up on a brand or a color (as long as it's blue or black, really!) - what I'm interested is that it's the same size/offset as the original plastic servo arm, which I've used and abused until now.

Thank you all!
Paul
The alloy steering parts have the same geometry as the plastic parts.

As for a servo if you get your AE items from the CML Distribution route check out the Etronix 2060 servo, great value for money (they have made national A-finals in the UK) and blue & black combo looks great in our cars.

You can always convert that old B6 to an RF2
That's what I did with my B6 and now I'm the talk of the track!

Just to let you guys know Kyle Moon who is current Willspeed driver (top 20 finisher UK Nats) has re signed with Willspeed and has a nice new 6.2 to build up into a willspeed car!

I'll grab some pics when I can and upload them here, the current team are going to put the 6.2 back end on our willspeeds to bring them up to the latest spec

Good news about the 6.2 updates. Do you know if there's anything from the xb2 '20 that can be retrofitted to a willspeed xb2 '19?

New proto b6.1/2 rear hanger, lets you run 0 deg rear toe in which in testing has proved a real winner with more drive and corner speed

I am running x-ray 20 version front arms, aluminum front tower (same thickness as 20 carbon) and rear arms with longer hinge pins, rear hanger (not 20 version) and 73mm drive shafts. The 20 diff fits but would require shimming that is didn't see much benefit to do. I am using 2mm spacers on the shock eyelets to duplicate the 20 eyelets.
