I did notice that on one of the pins, but that issue was corrected before the pic was taken. I am going to continue the build up of the car and maybe it will become a none issue as the suspension come fully together.

The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.

And thanks for the heads up on the ball cup. Didnt even notice the difference. Ill have to go through the suspension and check all of them to put them in the correct spot.

I just checked my droop settings too, and it looks like yours. Use the base setup from
http://www.petitrc.com/reglages/vbcr...tBaseSetup.pdf

You still have about 2mm of wiggle room for droop. besides, too much front droop will cause the car to be unstable and do a sudden hook.

As far as the suspension blocks go, I wouldn't worry too much. Just make sure that your arms are not binding in anyway and you should be good.

Just build the car and run it. You won't be disappointed

I would try to correct that before running the car on the track as something appears to be binding. It could be one of your ball cups, roll center may be different between the two sides, etc. Your best bet would be to eliminate each variable one by one until you are able to locate the issue.

In regard to the Center Suspension Mount, have you tried pressing it straight as you tighten the screw at the bottom of the chassis?

I have heard comments from a significant number of people who have been instantly faster with the D06 over their previous cars.

What makes the D06 so good is that you don't need to try to find steering to hit an apex as it's just there and the car can generate a high amount of traction, even with the stock 2.5mm chassis.

The D06 is every bit as competitive as the A700 and T4 14, for a much better price. I swapped from the A700 and I have been very happy with with my D06, the car has tons of steering and corner speed. Been running the VBC Racing Shop base setup from petit RC along with a few other local guys and we've all had great success with it.

You won't have any issues with rear grip, the car is stuck Not sure what class you run? But you may want to get some different toe blocks to change rear toe.
