They are 50mm. Any of the DCJs for XRAY Should fit.

Btw, does anybody know of the Spring Steel outdrives for the XRAY will fit the VBC front spool?

Yes, any 50mm DCJs for XRAY will fit. But as for the outdrives, sadly no. I tried it and the notches in the spool doesn't fit.

I also tried the xray outdrives, they don't fit. The only option is to run a gear diff in the front and lock it. I run a gear diff in the front with ear plugs.

They are available on VBC Racing's Web site, but their international shipping cost is $25.

I recently had a new body painted for the Wildfire and since it's been slow here, I guess I'll post up a couple of shots:

Thanks, I dyed the wheels after painting the body. The wheels take some time to dye, so the color is never too far off.

I think the current Wildfire is far from obsolete and a new chassis release doesn't seem necessary.

anyone else?

The VBC has been in the US for about 13 months and they released the Dynamics edition and now another revision to the Wildfire, that's pretty crazy.
