We have one local with a ZX6. Kyosho in general is not very popular at all here. For a short time several guys bought RB6s and called themselves the red army. 6 months later they were all gone and running AE. I swear AE somehow brainwashes locals. Did you notice at cactus that every car in the stock amain was a B5M? Not saying it is the best or not, but it sure has a local presence. I am told at other tracks they are all Kyosho or TLR. It would be nice to see a variety of cars on the track.

I did anticipate this so if I have issues with traction I can always move the battery further back to get more traction. Since this is just testing the waters.

Yes it is. I wanna keep the receiver water tight, plus I can hide all the wires.

You don't have to touch the chassis but you do have to dremel out the plastic side chassis trim to fit a shorty pack battery.

Price issue and the fact that ever hobby shop I called while in AZ. Has no Kyosho parts could be a big reason. Don't get me wrong I liked the B5M, but it took a lot of money, the 3 gear diff, and countless hours to work like I wanted it to, but still was not close to what I have with any of my K cars. My RB6 other then aluminum hubs, and rear suspension mounts is box stock. I won't need suspension mounts ever again due to the pill I serg design, so a one off high price tag is nothing to me for this amount of dialed driving. It just feels way more natural then the good B5M did, and I can really push the shit out of it and it doesn't fret. The B5M was never really that comfortable being thrown around like I can with the new car. I would say the 22 2.0 with all of the new stuff is a close 3rd behind the AE car. Bit I put as much into the 22 as I have the K car and still have a better buggy now. I should have kept the cars I had a year ago.

What kind of track and what is its traction level like?

Mid motor or rear?

Are you running the same front tire choice or similar as everyone else?

Red Rock Hobbies still has some RB6 parts. I doubt they are continuing to order them though. I never said the RB6 was bad. I really like mine. Still debating getting another one. And yeah, out of the box the B5M is lacking, too heavy and kinda lumbers around. At 1500g it feel pretty good. But yeah, a lot of work.

Yeah, my RB6 with only a lightweight shorty can get as low as 1542 with the aluminum buts. Think if I go lightweight body and titanium screws/turnbuckles 1500 should be rather easy. Already have the lightweight VST2 Pro 17.5 in there. Feels peppier then the Shurr speed without the questionable business practices lol...

lol, lets not get into the Jason Dias thing, it has been done. I tried the light weight shorty. It lacked "kick" for me later in the race. Did you run that battery in 17.5 at SRS? If so, how was the jumping 6-8 minutes in? Some of those double gave me fits in 17.5 when power dropped off.

After 7 it didn't have anything left. I'm thinking of putting some
Light weight items on and balance it out with a standard shorty, but only turnbuckles, ball studs and screws. I'm not running the pucks system, and the lightweight chassis will only happen if I find an extra $100.00 laying around somewhere lol..

yeah, we typically run 7-10 minute amains with practice laps. Heats and lower mains are 5 minutes with 2-3 minutes of practice laps.
