Think 2 guys from CRC enter this car in the Reedy race last weekend, one made it to the A main, the other one finish B1. Not bad for first race with only 2 cars.

If you are talking about Kody Knudston, yes he drives for AE and he had his 6.1.

Dave Ehrlich and Max Keunning had the VBC cars at Reedy.

Not a clone car in any way really. The shocks look similar to TRF's but are not. Different color and i believe the internals are slightly different. Not totally designed in america but has been tested and now proven in the US by three CRC team drivers being Brian "dumper" Wynn, Max Kuenning, and Dave Erlich. All of these three have done well so far with the car and will only continie to improve. Also keep in mind that 99 percent of competitive TC's look very alike, however you have to get down to stuff like bulked shapes and thicknesses, lengths of belts and chassis flex characteristics, this is where all TC's very in performance.

The VBC guys have come a long way and quick. From Snowbirds, Canadian Nats and few races in between and now Reedy - the progress has been impressive.

Always good to see new credible options hit the market. The car looks like a no comprimises competitor.
