Let me know if you are interested in seeing more of my assembly
Hi,

Could you ( of someone else ) weigh the car before putting the elctronics in ? Just curious. No bodyshell, wheels, or electronics, just the car complete and empty. Thanks !

Look I'm not saying that the VBC car is not good, you come here and only tell half the story.... Paul lost steering in the main, he was up almost a lap, I'm was the TM that turn off the car and back on which he got steering back... That was after trying to figure out if something else happened... He lost 2 laps to Andrew....
Andrew didn't have the pace that Paul did for sure and wouldn't have won without Paul's problems.

I watched most of the race from the drivers stand and can tell the Andrew was down on pace and wasn't as smooth/consistent as Paul. However, the next week Andrew was back there and seemed much smoother with more consistency so I think he is going to pick up speed in mod as time goes on.

VBC Racing Team Driver Ryan Maker set TQ this past weekend at the South Australian Onroad Titles race with his Wildfire D06.

Congrats to Ryan!

Unfortunately I am able to post pics here, but we have a short writeup with more info under the Good Reads section of our site.

I'm interested to see who the US Distributor is for this car. I'm headed to Hong Kong at the end of the week and this might be on my shopping list. Kwong Wa St. here I come!
