Yes please keep us updated on the setup and changes you made.

Almost ready to get one of these, how are the plastic parts for strength? Moving over from a TC6.1, hoping the plastics are as strong.

Not to my knowledge, though I am sure that one can be made to fit. You generally don't want the battery stuck to the chassis like a brick. I use the Center Battery Mount and somewhat loosely apply double sided tape and ever so slightly elevate the battery from the center.

Send that badboy down here.. I'll run at the Speedtech Grand Club Race in Oct at the Tamiya test track.

I promise I won't nail the kink at full throttle.

If you are serious about purchasing or racing with a D06 at Tamiya, let us know and we should be able to let you drive one of ours.

I have a setup that I feel would work really well at the Tamiya track. This is the setup I used in the main on my first race out with the D06. The car carried excellent corner speed and was excellent everywhere. The track has similar dimensions to the Tamiya track and grip levels were similar prior to the surface reseal.

The setup may seem a bit unorthodox, but it works and works very well.

Click the image below to check out the setup. Btw, I ran a spool up front:

Ya, a customer of mine did one. Not 100% sure but I think he use a 3racing mount just drill few holes on the chassis.

All I can say is wow. What great support and customer service I have received from everyone at the VBC Racing Shop and VBC racing team. I just started building my DO6 and all I can say is after building this car, that it goes together like a charm. Everything fits and work beautifully. I look forward to running it and seeing how it compares to the older car. Remember to keep supporting VBC Racing Shop as if we do not support the people that help us, we will not have anywhere to get these wonderful cars and parts for them except over seas.

Upon completion of building the steering system assembly I notice that the steering travel arms have vertical play on the steering assembly poles and that they slide up and down roughly 1mm. How do I remove this?
