Thanks !
Are you talking about the balls for attaching the links to the bulkhead and c-hub? if so they are 5.5mm

I think that you should try to get A-Main Hobbies to carry all of your VBC parts. They have most of them, but not all of them are available. Most RC hobbyists know and shop with A-Main Hobbies, plus it is extremely easy to locate and order whatever you want, with or without part numbers.

Thanks for your advice, we will talk with A-Main to see whether they are willing to carry more parts

Default VBC Wildfire D06

The WildFireD06 is an all new platform, designed to increase traction, improve flex points, improve weight distribution, and center of gravity.

1. All-new motor mount design, moving the motor more centerline and forward increasing corner speed and overall agility of the car. Making this the most centerline touring car on the market.
2. All-new motor mount can incorporate a wider range of gear ratios from 21.5 up to modified classes
3. All-new chassis and upper deck providing more linear flex response and better weight balance
4. All-new redesigned front and rear A-arms to be much stronger but still lightweight
5. All-new roll bar mount for smoother response and easier adjustments
6. All-new 4mm thick lowered graphite shock towers improving CG
7. All-newly designed 'True Big Bore' shocks (TBB). Shorter shock shafts, bigger shock body diameter keeping the volume the same as original shocks
8. All-new TBB springs with 4 different rates
9. All-new redesigned lower bulkheads which are lighter in weight and stronger in durability by using our new manufacturing process
10. All-new upper camber link position for more linear cornering response
11. All new 7075 aluminium ball connectors
12. Front 2-piece joint drive axles included
13. All-new lightweight 7075 aluminium centerline servo mount included
14. High quality Panaracer 116T spur gear included

Wow, that is a fair amount of changes, looks great! I look forward to seeing more pics!

This latest evolution is probably worthy of its own thread.

The new VBC Wildfire D06 is really awesome!! I've only ran it twice and been super happy, once on asphalt and once on carpet. The whole team has tested this car immensely, and I can assure you won't be disappointed!

Here are my setups with the new car. They can be applied to the old car too i'm sure!

If anyone has any questions, please feel free to PM me or ask on here, and myself and any of the other team drivers will be able to help you out!

4. New photos will be posting up as we are peeping photo shoot next week.

I really regret to hear all your unhappy comments on VBC but I hope that I can solve some of your problems.

BTW, VBC stands for Victor Bernard Company. No other special meaning.
