Regards, Stu
Stu,

For the front you'll need the HPI 0 off set and for the rear the +6mm. I put a 1mm hex shim to give the proper clearance.

Oh wow! Dave IS on here lol!!!

I have sat and talked with Dave quite a bit lately about the VBC cars and I am very impressed.
Touring cas are all starting to look like clone after clone and the VBC cars are unique, and they really do work well from what I have seen.

Hoping to run one this season

Is this car out? Can you order it thru VBC website or is that pre-order?

Hi guys, I have one question: does someone use a midflex or flex chassis on the original wildfire? I'm running on low grip asphalt and need overall more grip. The balance is quite very well it's just for the general grip niveau.
Thanks in advance

I sometimes just run mine with just the 4 screws in the rear of the top deck for more flex.
