Anyway, I have 55s front and 2 hole 1.6 rears 35/30 to start. I run the same pistons in the +10 rb5 with 32.5/27.5. The stock setup is great for a track like the nats but we have bigger jumps.

Hey, I am in the middle of building my RB6. I am new to Kyosho and I am using the Jared Tebo setup and I am hoping for some help. When I use the RB5 front axles there is some play unless I use a 1 mm spacer. Should I use the spacer? If so, should I use it between the pin and the bearing? Any help you can provide would be appreciated.

It goes on the inside of the spindle away from the hex.

So I should put the spacer on before putting the axle through the bearings?
