I am putting my RB6 together and notice my rear b4 tires don't fit very well, the nut won't go down very far. Anyone else notice this or did I do something wrong? Also, how much of the front b4 tire has to be dremmeled?

Results of too much time and extra carbon fiber, not perfect but it'll do

no, that's normal. Use serrated nuts instead, or just buy proper kyosho wheels.

Yeah, but your front and rear nuts won't match lol

I've had no issues with diffs or driveshafts, so what's benefit for MIP kit?

Planning on try 1 degree hubs in low track mid shortly

MIP parts should last longer than OEM. We are wearing out diff outdrives and CVD pins faster than we'd like, that's all. And by reading the parts list, the wheel nuts are metric, but the 12mm hex setscrew is standard(I'd use the Kyosho hex anyway)...feel free to correct me if i'm wrong

I should have noted - when I built mid motor I did change to stiffer rear and front springs. Couldn't agree more with above quote though. Seen guys just sell stuff off without working on setup. Last night someone ran with saddle pack mid motor and it handled much better than my shorty pack mid motor.

Shorty with some underlipo weight is what the Euro team advise on the mid motor. Same weight as saddles but lower gravity center. Around 40g will do.

Well believe it or not but the MM doesn't work that bad with the stock springs as long as you stiffen the front oil and don't use too agressive a front tire

cant use the kyosho hex it is driven differently via flat spots on the mip axle and by pin on the kyosho
