I'm using a 1.0 and 0.5mm spacer in the front.
Where can i get these magical shims? I have 2 VBC's and i need some of the goods. I also need to get bearing for the rear axle, i bought Charles car and it looks like the rear took a beat down.

Ok how much to ship you both out here? i need some help here. With a bad setup car was good.. I cant wait to get a good setup. So get to working on that setup sheet and send it over. I need to get my F1 on. It's picking up steam locally and i could see a lot of VBC cars running at my local tracks. I think my F1 has something in common with Jenna Jameson it's been handled by hundreds of dudes locally.

Thanks man. I found them on Timezone also. I guess i was hoping to find someone on the east coast that had them. It sucks to pay 10 bucks for shipping on 12 bucks worth of items. Oh well. I guess i'll either have to pay up or make my own.

I'm away and don't have access to my stuff. I need to find out the flanged bearing size for the rear axle. I know they are 10x6 but need the width. If someone can help me out there would be great. The vbc part number is C-02-BB-1006-FB. I don't want to pay 10 bucks shipping on a 5 dollar item so i'm looking to source them from avid or a place like that.

Thanks
