Awesome! Glad to hear that you completed your build, now it's time to tear up the rug!



No problem R Doyel. I am glad to hear that you enjoyed the car on your first race day!


It appears that everybody is faster with their D06 thus far, that's so awesome!



You have been on a tear since picking up the D06! Glad to see that our base asphalt setup is working well from you and others from SoCal, NorCal Hawaii and beyond.

The setup is very stable, has good steering, rear end grip, corner speed and is easy to drive at the limit, which I am sure you already know Jay L.

Our Hooked up Asphalt Wildfire D06 Setup can be found on our Setup Sheets page HERE.

Sorry we haven't been on lately, but we have been really busy making improvements to our Web site. With some back end modifications and other improvements, we have been able to decrease page loading times by 80% thus allowing our site to load faster than 92% of Web sites while also loading more data. Additionally, we have streamlined our category menus to make finding individual products faster and easier and have also enhanced our "Shop By" menu. We are also working to implement a live chat feature and are hoping to have it up and running by the end of today.

Lastly, We are continuing to make improvements to our base asphalt setup and are expecting to add a more aggressive setup for drivers who prefer a more edgy and responsive car within the next few weeks.
Awesome improvements to the site. Much better. Loads alot faster.

That is great news.
Good to hear a manufacturer spending time working on Asphalt setups.
I know the USA and most others have moved almost totally to carpet but we here in South Africa still run 100% on Asphalt.
This might be the turning point (push over) I needed to help me decide on this chassis with the manufacturer listening to their clients and actually doing something about it.

Great work VBC
We are a couple of drivers here in RSA that is going to make the shift to VBC for 2014.

Holy crap. $110 worth of parts cost $53 in shipping. You've got to be kidding me. I was better off with $25 shipping from hong kong. Is there anywhere else to get parts Im getting some left overs from amain from when vbc was with crc. As good as this car is, without a US distributor (apc seems to be in canada) its going to be a slow rollout.
