Agree with Potoczak. The parts quality and the lack of slop are on par with Xray, but the prices are not

Personally slop always bothers me, even if my laps times don't show it, it gets in my head and makes me less confident. That has always been a big reason why I stayed with Xray and almost went Awesomatix.

After running all three cars back to back, same track same layout, same electrics, same tires.

I am now here

Jay, glad you made the switch.

My D06 that you ran this past weekend was lost by UPS; electronics and all.

Hum. Maybe you can consider getting the sim kit and arm mount so you can play around with the roll center and rear toe?

VBC racing (D-05-VBC-0032) WildFire Front/Rear Suspenion Shim (1mm,0.5mm)
VBC racing (D-05-VBC-0033) WildFire Center Suspension Shim (1mm, 0.5mm)
B-02-VBC-0061-25

VBC racing (A-03-VBC-0038) Shaft End Shoe and VBC racing (A-03-VBC-0055) Front Spool Outdrive are usually very durable but can keep some for spare.

To add some bling to the car you can add can add b-02-vbc-0094
7075 aluminum spool shaft.

You donot really need them as the car in stock form is really really durable already. The car I am running now is one of the first production D06 and so far I had only broken one rear arm running it weekly in Mod class.

Oh man, that sucks so bad. Now I am sad.

Hope you are working with them, UPS, they have found things for me in the past.

Don't be thinking you can snake my car

Seems like I'll be joining team VBC

I heard that there were some missing parts in the first lot of the kits. Are they updated now?

nice. btw, how come on the site it says "This item is available on backorder for delivery within 7 business days." When it says it is in stock? The out of stock items say "out of of stock"

ok nvm, seems like majority of the items including the kit is backordered. I guess I got confused what the difference between the backorder and out of stock items was. Will just have to wait.

No, of course I wouldn't snake your car, but perhaps your friend's D06. J/K
