the new outdrives shoulder is milled down to clear the new diff cases. if you use the new outdrive/pin(which is a larger dia.) and the new gear with a larger slot for the pin you can but the ring and pinion are not the same as the 5

Is that the Proline body? Mine didn't fit well at all. The servo arms hit the body side badly,and the exhaust pressure nipple prevents the body from sitting down all the way.

Ya its the proline body. Proline has made a running change to their molds which now have bigger clearances over the throttle and steering servo. the body on the newer mold is also different around the pipe.

This is the old body mold. a not as thick aluminum servo horn works fine and i have a JP3 in it which is a little thicker than most pipes.

I recently ordered another shift body from towerhobbies.com and got a newer mold.

I've noticed that my car has some bump steer. I know that pivot ball suspension tends to have a bit of bump steer. Is the bump steer ok to have? or is there a way to tune it down?

thanks

Phixd...You can remove the bump steer by spacing the steering rack up about 2mm. I used 2mm washers on the 5R but haven't touched the 6 yet. Could be wrong but the bump steer does not seem to be as prevalent on the 6 as it was on the 5R.

A LOT! I made the switch also man. Just make sure you are running 400/350 f/r shock oils. Then the rest of the kit bone stock setup is a great starting point.

you will want the soft springs for the rear also if you are running 350 in the rear, or it will tend to bounce a little, the soft springs will settle it down

Im having a couple of issues with my x6. Car jumps awesome and acclerates like crazy but I need the car to be better mid corner and exit corner. I let the fastest guy at our track run my car yesterday and he said yeah Im right, defintley needs to be better mid corner and exit. He drives a 2.0 and he is smoking fast with it. I can hang with him but in the corners and whoop section he is tearing me up. Im running the stock setup minus more droop
