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
Inner hole on castor block Mark.

3mm trail will make the car feel more reactive / twitchier as it gives more initial steering. Should be good on tight indoor tracks, especially those on slippery floor where any other way of gaining initial turn in would result in a lot of understeer through the middle of the corner.

Try this setup as a starting point in those conditions ... was able turn inside and/or drive around the outside of everything

If you need anything more from the car then let me know, happy to help.

No doubt the B6.1D setups will evolve through the great British "summer"

Default 2 leftover bearings

Did everyone else have 2 bearings leftover after building their b6.1 or have I missed something?

I'm the same regarding the rear wishbone, I am wondering if you can use the b6 rear wishbone with the 67mm driveshafts (the manual says they are an option part) or is the b64 rear arm the same geometry?

Yeah definitely b6.1, might be worth asking them if they have any.
