Potoczak, yes, the new car will centre on low CG, weight distribution, flex distribution.

Ghost is in works, we are doing some intensive testings at the moment, we did not ditch this project and we are working hard on this.

Nice to see some action here... have been drooling all over VBC. Although I love my Mi5, I don't see why I can't own more than one good chassis.

The car is very good right out of the box. What kind of setup are you looking for? Asphalt or carpet? The kevlar belts are nice to have as they will almost never break. If your running 13.5 and 17.5 the stock belts will last a very long time. The dual joint drive shafts are a must. They are instant corner speed in any touring car. As for people complaining about how much the car breaks, put the hard foam bumper on and this solves most of this. This car has potential. The new D06 has even more potential Ive never heard Dave Ehrlich talk this high about a car before!

i race the vbc winter in indoor carpet. unless something new came up this spring summer, i didnt see a lack of parts support. my lhs was able to get stuff for me through their horizon chain and when horizon didnt have it i was able to get stuff through crc. they even got a missing item from the green upgrade kit i bought. which makes me wonder
with the upgrade car whats gonna happen to my green machine.

Roche doesn't have all of the parts, RCMart doesn't have all of the parts, and RCMarket and RC Mushroom don't sell anything VBC. Please tell us where in HK somebody can find all of the VBC parts.

Glad to here the ghost is still in the works. A Vta specific chassis would be awesome. Also can't wait for the details on the new touring car.

Hey guys;

Could someone give me a precise measurement ( read: digital calipers ) of the alloy ball connectors that are all over the Wildfire ? I'm wondering if I could use them on my Photon.

Thanks !
