I wish I could say who the new distributor is but I can't because I'll get in big trouble but VBC Racing is in great hands on this side of the pond.

I would say very close to 100%. I was assured I would see them by the beginning of the season. But weird things have happened before.

It's tough plunking down $350+ when there's nothing in stock. When are the kits coming in? Will there be any spare parts in the first shipment ?
Thanks.

Hi, we definitely don't like playing the waiting game either, but without getting into the specifics, we had to. Our Cars and parts are arriving here soon. We will have parts for the D06, Flash04 and some parts for the FF Twelve as well.

We are here for the long haul and will definitely have all of the parts you will need.

Another thing, we are also VBC racers and want to play with our new cars too!

I have personally known the man behind vbc racing shop for quite a few years and he is a real deal enthusiasts in this hobby. He is very passionate about the hobby and he has been putting in lots of work to bring vbc racing shop to fruition because he really believes in the brand and the cars.

I for one cant wait to get my hands on the d06 even though I really like my wildfire.

Thanks for building more support for my favorite onroad brand!

Couldn't agree more! I know he's put in countless hours to get the site and whole operation up and running up to his standards, which are crazy high. You VBC guys are in good hands!

Can't wait to see the car all wired up.

I just picked up my kit from Action Hobbies in Hong Kong. If you are ever in Hong Kong, that is a MUST stop place. They had one assembled in the shop and I was playing around with it. I've been building kits since my Original RC10 and Touring Kits since my first HPI RS4. The last 3 touring cars I have owned have all been XRay.

I can say with complete confidence, the quality of the parts in this kit are every bit as good as XRay. I will keep updating as I build but so far, this thing is beautiful!

And the bag that it comes with is pretty sweet.

Question for VBC Racing though:

Will this Fan mount fit the D06?

VBC Racing Shop is not the new distributor. The new one will be announced in the next week or so.

I can finally say who's the new distributor is now. The new North American distributor is APS Racing. They are a great company. PM Hobbycraft and I have dealt with them for years. I am very happy for APS Racing.

If anyone in Canada is looking for the Wildfire D06 I will have them in by the end of the week. The only bad thing is I won't have enough of the optional chassis for everyone that's wants one. I should have more next week.
