so if you can't wait for Exotek and/or don't want to pay premo for the Kyo parts here you go

They are actually parts from the 5 that carry over to the 6.

Great price for hubs but keep in mind they don't use an oversized outer bearing. They melee quality stuff but the o/s bearing helps longevity a lot.

i have the hinge pins and the 0.5 hubs in my rb5, holding up quite well. The bearings a non issue if you keep maintaining it and its just a buck to replace from avid spares .

BTW got eper's shock tool, very nice work man! fits great and matches my ghea ride height tool as well with the knurled grip

umm, do you really need an aluminum tool to get that tight enough to not leak ?
I love tools but at this point I like to see how much stuff I don't HAVE to carry to the track. Fingertight seems to work for me.

Its fine for tightening by hand. Just gets icky trying to remove it, harder to spin it then its more locked.

It does not fit... Go with the Triad if you are seeking an aftermarket slipper

Depends on what setup you are going to put on it. I'm on the std dirt Japanese Team setup (http://www.petitrc.com/setup/kyosho/...SetupSheet.pdf) which doesn't require a spacer at all - it's the "spacer" setting to the right of the caster block drawing

Most all setups do not use this spacer
