You should see the car ship around the second week of July.

Got my car today.....nice! Must say that the quality of the parts are very good. Chassis is super narrow with a unique shape to say the least. Gear diff is very smooth with no leaks, reminds me of the xray diff. About 50% done with the build and so far I have not had to hand fit or shim any of the parts..

Blitzrockey, It really depends on a lot of things but this is what I run at my local carpet track (small to med in size). 64 pitch 96 tooth spur with a 51 tooth pinion. On a car with a 1.9 internal gear ratio it should work out to a 3.50 fdr. I run the Rev tech 17.5 motor with the timing 2 notches from full timing. Hope this gets you in the ballpark...

where are you guys getting spare parts? does the car use tamiya full length brackets (suspension mounts) on the front and rear suspension or full length blocks and split block combo like the xray? are there optional brackets for tuning ? if so where can I get them

rdlkgliders, the Wildfire uses a full block on the FF and RR (Tamiya blocks seem to fit) and a split block on the FR and RF. I have not found any VBC optional brackets yet for this car. As for spares I'll be getting my stuff from CRC when it's available.

Thank You, I looked on the crc website and did not see any blocks available yet. I will keep an eye out.

I apologize if this has been answered before but I couldn't find it. Anyway, does this car come with Standard or Metric type of screws?
