If you need help with a setup, just ask me Saturday. LOL! I run at Coyote almost every Sat. I will be in the back.

Thanks, I've only raced at Coyote's once due to work and other things going on. I mainly just run there for fun with friends. I do want to start racing more often once I have the time to do so........ But I'll def. hit you up via pm when I can hit the track on a Sat. for racing. What tires are you running, and what springs/shock oil do you recommend?

Speed control on the shelf helps the rear of the car roll more. Generally on the B4.2 you will only see the ESC in the battery tray w/ shorty up front for a very high bite condition.

There's no reason to shave the U Brace with a B hub tower. A and B hubs are the same height. B hub is only to offer in-between camber link length adjustment. With A and B hub towers you will generally find yourself running 0-2mm of shims on an unshaved U-Brace.

Inline with the speed controller on a shelf would be the way to go for most conditions if you wish to try the inline setup. Personally I have tried it and preferred the traditional layout.

Will likely have to swap pinions due to the smaller spur included in this upgrade kit:

And they have how many championships compared to Team Associated?

Yeah I said it! LOL

Kyosho cars are very nice and I own one that I absolutely love. No complaints, but my 4.2 is a wee bit better.

Tebo is driving well, maybe his year. Anyway, the rb6 i a very good car. I was faster with it outdoors, but I am just as fast or faster indoors. My issues outdoors are probably due a setup that is not right yet. Indoors I was a traction hero, so all I had to do was drive and not fight traction.
