My recent builds including my RB6 have been with Viper VTX10 ESC's. I really like this ESC so far. Maybe check those out while your at it.
Thanks for the reply I am mainly looking for something smoother than the tekin stuff but not crazy exspensive

Sorry to say but I agree with you 100%. It is kinda pricey

IMO the speedpassion stuff is at the top on ESC! right now i have been testing the cheap track track star esc and its very smooth and very cheap! But the SP is bar non at the top of the ESC's the only esc that is as smooth is the LRP flow! I have drove both 1.0 and 1.1 braking is better on the 1.1 but for the price id get the 1.0 !

Has anyone tried the square pack in mm? I seen a pic on redrc with a mm rb6 using a square pack and wanted too if there was any advantage.

I just talked to Joe Pillars team manager and he said the Orion square and saddles weigh the same.

Wow, this is going back a way! On the topic of price though, I wish that manufacturers like Kyosho offered MORE expensive kits that included all the optional bits at a bundled price. This would save people like me money as I'll inevitably buy everything anyway. I can only imagine the kit a manufacturer could put together for the $1400- or so I have invested in my RB6 (not including electronics, spares etc, just the rolling chassis!) . But I guess it's easier to stomach a bunch of smaller purchases for the consumer and this also generates more profit for the supply chain...

What would be really cool would be to spec your own kit using a list of options for each part based on your budget and requirements!

On the contrary, I've already spent money on the expensive option parts for the rb5 and wouldn't want to buy those again seeing they are direct fit/reuse on the rb6.

Some of the option parts may be overkill. And if you buy them all at once, how are you gonna scratch that shopaholic itch the following weeks?

Yeah Joe, and team driver Andy DiBrino tested it 2 weeks ago, and it was awesome until the track dried out and got dusty. Didn't work so well then. The local team has all switched to rear motor for the rest of the summer.

Would you be able to post the rear motor setup. We run on a bumpy low traction dusty surface.

They were all using them. Also made relief cuts in the rear arms for more flex
