Built my b6.1 over the weekend, everything seems to be a snug fit compared to the b6 much less initial slop

So , setups for the b6.1.

The kit setup seems quite soft to me, certainly compared the to b6.

Has anyone run theirs on dry Astro yet (probably not considering the weather)

What changes have you made from kit setup and why?

It is the 2x1.8 rear pistons that cause that feeling.

Ran a full day (nearly 8 hours) at Kidderminster with mine.

B6.1D ... so much forward drive it's silly, on a par if not slightly better than my B6D stand up, corner speed nearly as quick as the laydown in the same car.
Drying track stopped play.

B6.1 .. even on the kit setup it was obvious immediately that the car was more than the sum of the parts.

Has a lot more steering than the B6 and generates far more forward drive too.

By the end of the day I had a really sweet handling car that was easy to drive and quick (had an F1 driver there for some of the day so had a pace setter).

Changes from the kit B6.1 setup (other than building it with hard arms and alloy front bulkhead)

Front bar from blue to white
Front oil to 37.5wt

Wheelbase to medium on rear arms
Removed rear ARB
Rear shocks changed to 27.5wt/2x1.7/grey V2 spring

Added 35g under the LCG lipo I was using, total weight of car 1555g.

Tried lots of other stuff but kept going back to the kit setup for reference and like the longer links.

If the grip wasn't quite so high I'd be tempted to go back to the more customary set middle hole in front bulkhead and middle hole on the rear camber plate.

I strongly recommend starting with the kit setup and tuning from there, if you bolt on your old B6 setup you might miss some of the benefits of the new car


As for the B6.1D I didn't get chance to change much as it dried really quickly.
At Coventry this weekend Dave Searl ran his B6.1D to great effect, kit setup other than shocks on the back & softening oil 1 step in the pouring ran.

I had a conversation yesterday with someone about the 1.8 pistols and why they came with that. His reasoning was the molded 1.7 pistols had a lot of slop in the shock body that fluid flowed around the piston and now they are machined and a better fit they have opened the hole by .1 to give it the same feel

Hi Roger,
Can I confirm your link position on the front caster block on the B6.1?
In the manual, the setup at the back says outer hole, but in the assembly instructions, they use the inner hole on the caster block (ALA B6).
Which one did you use?

Thanks
Mark
