Default B6 or B6D

Can't decide which would be the best all rounder?

Most of our British tracks are high grip Astro but our weather is mainly wet/damp so making it low grip. I'm wondering if the B6D would be the best choice but with the gear diff for when it's dry?

My only covncern is the B6 may not be very good in the wet?

Opinions??

I got my KF2 in forward motor to work reasonably ok in the wet i'm sure the B6 can! I would'nt go for B6D, may as well save a fortune and get a B5M.

How often do you race in the dry compared to the wet? Most seem to shy away from running when its wet.

If the b6 is anything similar to the yz2.. which is looks close to, then it can be made to work in low traction conditions.

I would go definitely for B6, B6D it would be design and made for dirt and low grip tracks only. I never was racing on fully wet track but sometimes we have wet spots on Astro and there is no grip at all on them so I don't think B6D would make big difference.
