Absolutely the best 1/10 2WD Buggy I have owned.

First run was on an awful dirt lot, went too fast, hit a rock and did a 10x cartwheel that easily threw several hard, awkward hits on my front wheels. Figured at the very least I'd be replacing turnbuckles. Nope, just a scuff on the wing.
Next slam was a pipe pin at my local track. (My depth perception sucks.) I'm sure there was a scratch left by the hit but I couldn't differentiate it from the others.
I know with being RC that there was some luck involved, but for my specific experience this thing is a tank.

Personal changes:
This car is set up for finesse in my opinion, not slamming around. I put 40w fluid in all four shocks because I run on a track made for 1/8 scale truggies. Will likely get a beefier set of springs too.
When you put the Velcro body holds on the chassis, either split it lengthwise and put half towards the front and half towards the rear or buy more and run the entire side of the chassis. I had an issue with vibration (yeah yeah, I know...balance my wheels...) On the rear that made both inner camber ball studs come loose. Because they're metal on metal I used, and suggest loctite blue.
Get an electronics panel insert for your RX and ESC. Without it you have to play around making stuff fit and even after that it's a pain to clean. If you're worried about weight there's a 7.5g graphite one available.
Future Mods will be an aluminum steering rack and rear aluminum hubs so I can run the MIP puck system.

For all but the most experienced racers the amount of adjustments you can easily make to this car is almost overkill. I love overkill. Be mindful to save all of the unused bits for future adjustments!

Drivability: I overpowered the crap out of mine, so initially if was, of course, squirrelly. Once I dialed the insanity back a bit and got the right tires for my track, even my ham-fisted driving style was tempered by the great engineering and I was shaving time off my laps.

Final thoughts:
The only cons I can come up with are the desire for more velcro for the body mounting and needing two drops of loctite on the rear inside camber ball studs. So yeah, no biggie. Associated knocked it out of the park with this one. I'd even go as far as to say this thing is worthy of being called the B7, but because I failed my marketing class years ago I'll leave the numbering to the experts.

Had for about a year now and this thing is amazing. Jumps great corners very well. All around great handling. Have had some major tumbles and it’s still going strong.
One of the best buggies I’ve owned.... and that’s a lot over the course of 30 years.

I am the proud owner of two B6.1D buggy kits with one being used for Intermediate 13.5 and the other being converted over to Lite 17.5 specs for Pro Stock racing on our clay indoor track in Reno, NV. Both cars hold their own in local racing; but, the pilot is still learning...LOL In comparison to my past buggies (B6D and 22 4.0), the B6.1 buggy is a dream to work on. The easily serviceable diff is a HUGE plus in my mind. Also great that others at our track embrace the car and share setups.

Have to credit AMain in keeping all the replacement and upgrade parts for the B6.1 series. Really appreciate them; even during the horrific fire in an adjacent community where some of the AMain staff lived.

Team Associated RC10 B6.1D Team Kit
I am pleasantly pleased with the performance thus far of the Associated B61.D, box stock set up. As all Associated kits go it was a pleasure to build, all parts fit accurately and it was smooth as silk. It drives so smoothly, lands so softly off jumps, I really can't say enough about it. I have been in the hobby long enough to have seen Team Associated go from the Gold Tub chassis to what it has evolved to now, and I believe I have built and ran every version to date. I love the build almost more than the drive itself and have built almost every major manufacturer's cars at one point or another but always seem to migrate back to Associated, and needless to say have never been disappointed. You can never go wrong with a Team Associated vehicle-Nuff Said!!

Team Associated RC10 B6.1D Team Kit
I got this to replace my old RC10B4 to start racing again after taking a few years off. The build was easy and the instructions were clear and easy to follow. All the parts are high quality and very well designed. I like the improvements they've made since the B4 like the laydown mid mount motor. I started out with the standard kit setup. I put in a HB 17.5 ESC/Motor Combo with a protek shorty battery and a savox high speed servo. I took it to SDRC Raceway in San Diego. Right off the bat with the standard setup the car was pretty much hooked up. The drivetrain is super quiet and even quieter with a 175rc polypro pinion gears. It's very predictable and easy to drive. Though I did notice a bit of understeer and lack of punch when trying to jump doubles right after some turns. I put in about 100 laps of practice and I was having a blast. This car jumps awesome and lands square. To fix the understeer I added some front toe out. Which was easy to do with the included turnbuckles. To fix the lack of punch before jumps I tightened up the slipper clutch about 3-4 turns and this fixed it. I was now able to approach a jump after a turn punch the throttle and make the double no problem. After about 200 laps I noticed I broke the stock front bulk head probably after I crashed in one of the laps. I changed it out to the upgraded aluminum bulkhead from AE and opted for the 25 degree kick up setting. This gave me way more steering response. Overall I am loving this car. It's super fast even with a stock 17.5 motor and handles great. It's also durable. I did about a total of 500 laps that practice day and crashed a few times and only broke the front bulkhead. Parts are inexpensive and readily available everywhere. I was thinking going with the xray xb2 but I'm glad I went with this instead. If you're looking for a reliable 2wd buggy for racing then go with this RC10.

Team Associated RC10 B6.1D Team Kit
Didn't hear great things about the B6, so stuck with my B5M and was able to race competitively against B6s and other newer 2wd offroad cars. So when the B6.1 came out I was a little hesitant. My fears were dispelled once I raced my B6.1D for the first time and noticed immediately that I was running faster times.

The kit was a relatively easy build. The only hop-up additions were the slipper eliminator, titanium ball-studs and turnbuckles, and added 23g Brass 'C' mount, to give a total weight inc battery & body of 1501 grams. For 17.5 Stock Class, the car handled really well on both slippery/dusty clay surface as well as high grip clay surface.

All-round I'm glad I upgraded to the B6.1... now just to improve my driving!! LOL

Build went really well . Bearing in trans with wheels on spin effortlessly. Only complaint the dust cover doesn't fit motor configuration would love to have one that would fit layback trans even though marketed for dirt the one in kit is useless. Part fit better than previous A.E. builds, a arms for one. Diff is very easy remove. Car has more rear grip do to longer shocks and tower that are included this time around.

Team Associated RC10 B6.1D Team Kit
I gave up racing years ago, but enjoy building kits and comparing them on my small backyard dirt track. I built this with the 3 gear standup. Gearbox Part#ASC91788, motor plate Part#ASC91794, standup top shaft Part#ASC91798, and added the brass c block Part#ASC91798.
Note the kit comes with the 3 gear standup gear cover. I couldn't find info or exploded views on the standup trans and had to find a couple of shorter screws then what is used for the layback. Finally got a chance to drive it last couple of weekends and it handles my rough dirt track amazing. It generates great traction without giving up steering. My best laps with all the other 2wd buggy's are in the low 14 secs and ran under 14's almost every lap with the b6.1d. I have never cracked the 14 sec mark b4. So now I'm working on setups on all the other 2wd buggy's to see if I can improve them to match the b6.1d. Other then the standup and brass c it is kit setup with shocks on rear. So far my favorite 2wd so far for my rough low traction dirt track. Never tried the layback because a sealed gear cover is a must for me. Heres a list of my 2wd's I tested against it. Rb6, Rb6.6, TLR22 4.0,b6d, b5m, yz-2 dt, sworks s12-1r, xb2 dirt, cougar kd,spyder srx-2, hobao h2 pro, PR S1 V3, and even a 3racing cactus.

Other then the lack of 3 gear standup exploded view for proper screw length I couldn't be happier with it. Will be getting the sc6.1 with the same standup trans.
