Does anyone know the minimum amount of caster the MBX6R is tunable to including kick up (assuming kick up is adjustable)?

I am the kind of person that likes to be different though and tries different cars. The only car I have ran at this track that is as nimble and turns as great or better than the losi is an Agama. I liked that car alot but had to get rid of it for a few reasons. The Agama kind of spoiled me when trying all the other cars because now I know how good one of these cars can turn. My current car is a teckno converted MBX6 and i have tried almost everything to get this thing to turn how I would like it to. So far from a basic setup I have changed rear toe to 2.5, tried different caster settings but settled back to stock center because I am looking for more off and on power steering. Completely removed the front sway bar, and moved rear outer hub hinge pin location to lower hole, tried various ackerman settings (returning to stock because that is just a compromise as well). Also ran SS double dees in the front and soft impacts in the rear. That made it steer well but isn't the answer. Diffs are currently 7/7/3 seems to be the best compromise. Next thing I am going to try is moving my camber link locations and rear lower roll center setings around. The car is close to where I want it now and I think moving those will make it about right.
I had the same trouble when we ran a 6R, found out that it was because I set steering EPA with car on stand and at full droop, set the EPA with car on bench at ride height and you can increase the EPA quite a bit. it made a huge difference for us. hope this helps

And someone explain what the front upper arm hing pin adjuster change? Is that the front roll center? If so does hing pin up mean high or low roll center?

Most will fit rc8 but front mount hole is off.. If looking at the body with the nose pointed upward the front mount hole will have to be moved down further.. Easiest way i can explain it to you.

Got myself a nice used 6. Yeah the OG. Will start testing after undoing the mess I did with a pin and two shafts, seems they don't go one from another in one pass, and shatter...and a hammer is not enough...and now I have a mbx5r shaft and a mbx6 shaft connected by one pin.

Dude buy yourself a proper Pin Press/chain breaker. They can be had for 30-40$ on ebay.

Ive heard Many of pins breaking on some of the Name brand Tools, Ill stick to what's worked for 100's of pins over the years.

And I DO NOT suggest the HUDY, If you think replacing pins with a Hammer is the way to do it, well your sadly mistaken. Hardened pins Can and will shatter if your not careful as you have found out.

get the mugen tool... worth the money, trust me

if you are highly mechanically inclined and willing to modify a chain breaker it does work, but still not as easy as the mugen tool.
