First time out with the RB6 this weekend and I must say its very impressive. I did break a rear ball stud so I am going to have to replace the stud and the rear hub. Is there a certain ball stud people are using over the stock? I have heard Losi but I am not sure exactly which one will fit

I dont run any of the black ones. If it calls for a black one I run the medium shiny one. I run them on the front bulkhead and caster. I run the long ones in the rear bulkhead and use a nut to secure it.

I switched to Lunsford Titanium ball studs, haven't broke one since but they are pricey.

What are you guys hitting to break a stud??

I liked the bulldog over the stock body slightly, the top of the cab has ridges - I dented the stock body first time i flipped. I also think the stock body looks a bit weird with the oversized cab. That being said I didn't notice any real different in downforce or balance.

I now have a pair of finishers to paint up for my next cup titles.

If you had the avid, thought you'd just gone for the avid 78 spur?

Not a big fan, it works well, but it's loud.

I just bought it off here, got it Saturday am, and took it out to race that night. I cased a jump a bit sideways and snapped it. After inspection, I noticed the previous owner didn't have the balls screwed all the way in and there wasn't a washer shimming it up. I was surprised they lasted as long as they did without breaking
