I really like the fact that Kyosho didn't try and re-invent the wheel with this buggy. Nothing appears over engineered, or unnecessarily complicated like the 210 was. It looks like they took the very best in todays 2wd developments, and morphed them with the best of the RB5, to make the RB6.

Im curious as to what the inside of the gearbox looks like, as well as if there is going to be a new diff.

Also, here is hoping for lower wear dogbones and outdrives!

You're tempted because deep down inside... you know better.

This is the new RB6 thread, why are we talking about other manufacturer's?

I think the problem was the RB5 never liked the feel of you. Maybe you'll like the feel of the RB6?

Not far off; most US dealers will be getting their pricing today. I can see it going for $425 "ish".

They can slip at times when adjusting the shock collars.

That is MSRP. It will probably slot in just under $400 at most shops.

To be honest, that is about $120 too much. You can't compete with sub $300 buggies at the price point they want to sell it at. I may not change from the RB5 at that price.

Too expensive. looks too much like a DEX210, which will be $100.00 dollars cheaper when this ships, and parts support will be questionable for awhile. Will wait and see when the Big Bores for the B4.1 come out then make a descision. Until then, stay indoors and race my RB5.

True. That's a good point. Guess we will have to wait and see.

I am going to venture a guess that it will be 30-50 more than the car it is replacing.

The WC is already $100 more than the B4.1 and $80 more than the 22. I think the actual street price will be even higher than the RB5 WC if those numbers for MSRP are to be believed. That is darn expensive.
