Yeah, I had made my choice awhile ago. I just needed the cash to buy it. My RB5's will be up on eBay soon.

I saw that one on eBay as well. My local hobby shop is checking for me as well.

That's how I did it. I have seen pics of others that shimmed the other side instead. I guess they wanted a wider track width.

Yep.. that's a killer price, but I too hold some value in being able to build it right out of the box. If just having an extra / secondary kit is your goal, this is the way to go. If its your first 6, id buy new. (but that's just me)

That is a thought. I am waiting to hear back from my LHS. I would rather buy from them of course. I am the only Kyosho driver (for 10th scale anyway) around so they are kind enough to special order kits and parts for me. I try to give them as much business as I can because of that.

Really? Its around 80% price of a brand new car. I'd never do that, building a kit is one of the most satisfying things in this hobby!

Haha I dont mind wiring up stuff but I HATE HATE HATE painting bodies. There is soooo much stress in painting, half the time forget to clean my airbrush wear a mask, and then I end up painting my arms

BTW anyone in Northern California looking for the RB6, Kraig @ Delta RC in antioch has at least one on the shelf might be more.
