Got to see one of these in action last night. Man it looks dialed out of the box.
Crap load of steering and it had a grip load of power with a 13.5 in it..

Very nice.

Im using Jason's setup with AKA Vektor fronts in Red and Rebars in Red.
How much rear toe are you running?

Started the night with the setup I posted:

Then for round 2 I made some adjustments to get the rear end to be a little more locked in after a 180 coming on power. I lowered the rear shock mount to the furthest inside hole. This helped and I went faster.
http://mobile.liverc.com/results/?d=...K_BUGGY_NT.xml

Then for the main I felt it was a little to stiff with the shocks down so I went to a softer spring in the rear, switched to gold rear springs, car was amazing for the mains. I was clicking off 19 second laps like it was nothing.
http://mobile.liverc.com/results/?d=...T_(A_Main).xml

Was on a 19 lap pace (which obliterates anytime a stock buggy has gone on that layout, only the good mod drivers or 4wds go 19 laps) but Kevin Smith and I started waiting for each other so we could race.

I'll make a new setup sheet for what I changed tonight and post it up.
Consensus at OC/RC is that you have to run Gold springs, on the previous layout to the one there now I noticed the rear of my car lifting off the ground on any little bump I was on. Switching to gold stopped that from happening and made the car better for obvious reasons. Thinking about West Coast either today for some practice and tuning, or tomorrow for racing. Are they changing the layout this weekend?

Hello guys!

I'm now an (hopefully happy) owner of a RB6. Got it yesterday but i haven't assembled it yet.

I bought everything i need: motor, ESC, car, batteries (2), pinion (20t, is it good for a 8.5T motor?) and tyres. Only thing i don't know how to do is the plugs parts... The ESC comes with "raw" wires and i don't know which plug to put on those wires... Any website/article to give me some hints?

P.S.: I'm a 1/8 nitro buggy pilot, so i don't understand a s*** about electric stuff!!

Thanks

if you get your electronics in place, instead of buying all the equipment and learning on the go (unless you want to), take it to your LHS, they should be able to help you wire it up for a few bucks

8.5? I think 8.5 guys typically run a 22 or 23, somebody correct me if im wrong..

The esc usually gets directly soldered to the motor. A to A, B to B, and C to C. And last but not least, the sensor wire is just plugged in. The ESC gets plugged into the receiver, just like your servo. Once up and running, you need to learn how to calibrate your ESC/radio. Each manufacturer has their own steps for calibration.

Hey guys...

Does anyone tried the saddle configuration in rear motor layout? How does it compare to shorty or stick?

You could send me the body (or a new one, if this one is totally screwed up), and ill paint one for you. It wont be a work of art (I can't spend a crap load of time on it), but it will be relatively cool not unlike the one I have here. Just paypal me the cost for return shipping.

Thanks! I have someone to paint for me, but need a body for Friday. I was going to try to run a rb5 body, but thought what the heck...
