Anyone have a 17.5 setup for this car on med-high grip carpet, with Jaco Blues ?

Have a few friends that are struggling with corner entry, rear end grip

Hi All,

Have any of you tried a BD7? I am curious how these kits compare?

Thanks.

I have a fresh carpet setup that your friends can try. To download the setup sheet PDF, click the image and scroll down to Micha Kiesewetter.

Tried few of my friends and customer's BD7. The BD7 feel a bit more "nervous" compare to my D06. Just my 2 cents.

Congratulations to Dave Johnson for his domination of the Fall Fiasco with wins in Mod TC, Stock TC and Canadian Vintage TransAm at Lou's Speedway near London Ontario Canada. Dave's VBCs were as dialed as Dave's Driving. Lou Vanderwey was close setting the quickest A Main Lap Times in Mod and Stock but despite this Dave took the wins with more consistent drives.

Dave Johnson with the triple! He's a machine!

You can purchase a steering stiffener bar and shim underneath it to remove that play. A .2-.3mm shim should do the trick.

VBC Racing Team Drivers Dave Ehrlich, Devin Patterson, and myself all had a very successful weekend of testing in preparation for the IIC at one of our favorite indoor racing facilities, Timezone Raceway II. It was the first race of the season and racers from across the pacific northwest joined in on the fun.

Will post setups as soon as I figure out how to make a PDF non editable so its file size is small enough to actually upload on here!!!

5mm kyosho shims, just put it on the steering assembly post under the bearing. Do not use too much, give it a little free play so it will rotate freely even if you get some dirt on it after you run it.

Thank you for the help folks. This is such an awesome car and VBC Racing Shop has been outstanding with support, both parts and advice.

Thanks b_recliner!

We are here because other companies often aren't. We want our customers to know that we exist and are present when you need us.

I enjoy helping people in any way that I can, because this hobby is all about having fun and taking a short break from some of the realities of life.

Anyway, enough about that... How is everybody enjoying the D06 so far? I've been really impressed with it thus far. I am probably going to test the 2.25mm chassis with the stock upper deck the next time I am at the track, as well as test the 4 hole pistons. October will be a pretty busy month for testing and racing.

I haven't done a A-B test of the 2.25mm and 2.5mm chassis just yet, but comparing Dave's car (2.5mm) and mine (2.25mm), the thinner chassis makes the car steer a lot more aggressively.

It moves the balance of the car towards the nose. My setup has actually drifted away from what some others are running mainly to mellow out the car a little bit.
