Hard bumper is currently out of stock.
apparently it was design for Wildfire Dynamic but also fit D06.
You can buy a hard bumper for Xray but need a little bit trim work.
or you can buy a blank hard bumper from Reflex Racing.

Have you tried keeping the inserts inside of the lightweight bumper? If you secure them with adhesive, you can extend the life of the bumper. I have yet to run a hard bumper on the D06.

you can try: change the rear toe in to 2.5 degree from factory 3 degree.
it will increase corner speed and top speed in straight.
Also, increase the front sweep (front hinge pins being wider than the rear hinge pins on the front arm) will make the car less aggressive but a little bit more middle steering.

Does anyone have a recommendation for additional springs to carry with me above the kit springs?

The kit supplied orange (f) and red(r) work fine for me on carpet but for asphalt I might go red(f) and green(r).

BTW, I run in VTA class.

Thank you sashimi999!!!
When you talk about making wider the hinge pins, you mean to make the car wider in the front, but is it the same as put shims in the axel?

Thank you

No, he's saying make the very front of the car wider by changing the toe block while keeping the rear of the front the same. So the front hinge pins will look like \/ vs | |

Hope that makes more sense.

Yes, I am sure that setups will be forthcoming.

As an FYI, the track conditions were poor, really poor; the traction just wasn't there unfortunately.

Yeah, seriously.

BTW, has anybody seen the modified signups for the 2014 Reedy Touring Car Race of Champions? VBC Racing Entries are only second to Team Associated! This is going to be an awesome event.
