Congratulation to Dave Johnson for his TQ and A Main win in STOCK TC at the 2013 CANADIAN Nationals at the Seaway Mall in Welland Ontario Canada. STOCK TC was the largest class with 82 entries. Team CRC's Brian Wynn took 4th in TC STOCK and TQ and 2nd in CANADIAN Vintage TransAm (21.5 / 1450 Grams) which had over 60 entries. Brian also won WGT.

Thanks guys for racing with us.

Details on the 2014 CANADIAN Nationals are posted under the Canadian Forum.

Dave Johnson wins at Canadian on-road nationals


The Canadian on-road nationals is Canadaís biggest on-road event held in the middle of Sea Way Mall in Welland Ontario. With well over 290 entries for touring car, VTA, 12th scale, and Mini, this is clearly the biggest event in Canada. US national champion and indoor champion Dave Johnson attended this event and ran the highly competitive 17.5 blinky touring car class as well as full blown open modified class. The VBC driver took TQ by 4 seconds over the other 89 entries in this class. In the main Dave got away to a good lead after 3 laps from current Canadian champion Philippe Gelinas who had got around Rob Say for 2nd place. Philippe would get within a second of Dave before the latter started to put together blistering laps to pull out to a 6 second lead over second place.



17.5 blinky touring results
1. & T.Q Dave Johnson (TQ)
2. Rob Say
3. Charly Gratts

Dave also qualified 3rd in the super fast modified open class and finished 3rd behind race winner Associatedís Kevin Hebert and team Xray driver Andrew Hardman.

Open modified results
1. & T.Q Kevin Hebert
2. Andrew Hardman
3. Dave Johnson

I am interested in this car and I wanted to know peoples thoughts on it? What is everyone doing about the arms? Are you using Xray arms instead? I know everyone has there own opinion on things, I wanted to know the pro's and cons and the performance of the car.

Greetings from Singapore!!

Just had my maiden run with the Wildfire and my lap timings were already faster than with my previous car. Settings were box stock except for the shock oil and springs which were brought over.

What impressed me was the amount of steering the car had and the corner speed it carries. I am running on outdoor medium grip asphalt and the car really handles well, very nimble and stable.

I am still using the stock arms, but would like to try the Med arms as I think the stock arms are too hard, making it brittle. I believe Tamiya's 417 arms fit too.

Nothing wrong with the arms. The c-hubs and knuckles are a little weak but that has been addressed with the new parts.

Hey guys going to be heading outside with the wildfire on a medium grip asphalt track. Would the kit setup be a good starting point or is there another setup I can start with??

Hello everyone.... I'm new to the tc sport and purchased a tc6 not really doing my research prior just because I knew associated is a good name that makes a good product. Needless to say there was more drivers with other cars than the associated and now I know why. I did my research before I made my next purchase and the vbc wildfire seemed to be a good buy, I purchased this kit and went together better than the associated. I'm very happy with the kit so far and haven't had the chance to get this machine on the track yet. So far the kit looks better than the associated tc6 also rolls a lot better and has tons of steering seems like. Does anyone have any helpfull tips for a newbe regarding the wildfire other than keep stock in steering knuckles? Also I run the 17.5 blinky and my gears are 52 pinion & 100 spur 64 pitch for now. Any help would be great

Hi,

I just purchased one of these cars and am having difficulty locating parts such as the teflon pistons. I have searched the CRC Website, but am not finding anything. Does anybody know where I can find the teflon pistons?

CRC the shock upgrade set to the Website yesterday.

I noticed that VBC offers an aluminum fan mount and am wondering if it is for 25 or 30mm fans?

Hi IIGQ4U,

It's for the 30mm fan. Been running it at the last event and they work very well.

All the best.
