B6 club racer

Post by mikea96 » Sun Aug 06, 2017 7:41 pm

Just wondering if anyone has tried one of the new B6 club racer kits. I ordered one from Amain to run at my local track.

I have helped a new guy at the track with set up on one. They seem like a solid above entry level platform just dumbed down a tiny bit from the team version.

Make sure you use B5R rear arms and copy Ray Mundays set up on petitrc. B6d is a great car!

No wheels has been for awhile
Like it cause then run what one already has, or a kit with a set of wheels pleases half the people.

So my 8yr old and I got a lot built this evening while watching the Seahawks game. Im very impressed with the fit and finish so far. I added carbon fiber towers and schelle blue aluminum steering brace. Will be a roller tommorow.

Keep those stock glass towers handy when your racing- the carbon have a tendency to delaminate. That's why I started making the glass towers for the guys :mrgreen:

You can paint the edges of the towers with super glue, helps to keep them from de-laminating. I have a Hot Bodies D4 and in the manual it tells you to paint the edges of all the carbon fiber parts. I find it works. Get a glue that comes with a brush applicator, no mess, nice and clean.

Looking good for sure. I've only been able to get my B6D out twice... but from the moment it hit the track, it was so much fun to drive.
