You don't need to do anything. Why do you need to throw away your four packs of arms?

I believe that the arms are the same dimensions, but are more durable.

Yes the belts and diffs are the same. Arms, c-hubs, hinge pins, arm mounts, steering blocks, and tie rods are all the same as the old ones. The new arms are the same dimensions just designed to be more durable. If you guys are having problems breaking front arms I would recommend the hard foam bumper (VBC-0079). The "new" floating servo mount comes with the car. (not pictured)

Does the new servo mount differ from the previous floating servo mount?

Hi VBC Crew,

I would like to say thanks.

I don't think it's easy putting something out there and making yourselves available to the extent you are doing here. The level of support and involvement from your side is highly appreciated. You can also see how the thread has improved.

I think the new chassis looks great. It can't be easy to improve on a product which is already performing very well. I for one will continue promoting and supporting VBC, thanks all. Looking forward to placing my order for a few kits.

Default VTA Wheels

Hello,
Is anyone able to tell me the correct offset hex to use with VTA wheels to suit a 68 camaro body on this chassis?? I have heard that the front rims are a tight fit?

Can you also tell me what size fan suits the vbc fan support? ie 25 or 30mm

Regards, Stu

Don't know anything about VTA, but the fan mount supports 30mm fans.
