Ok so there are 2 mounts. I have the one in the pictures above. It doesnt work on my ghost. I need this one. As you can see the attachment point to the center bulkhead is behind the bracket. The one I have is in front

Every one that we have sold looks like the in the photos I provided. Good eye noticing that there has been a modification in the fan mount design.

I think the older design would work better. At least in my sitiation it would. I guess I can move it back and have it at an angle, but I just dont like the way that looks. I think VBC is ahead of the curve by actually making their own mount and not relying on aftermarket, but I dont understand the modification.

And nice stack of D06's. Think it might be time for a give away contest.

Default VTA Setup

I know it's an old thread. It depends on the traction level at the track. My car was originally setup as a VTA winner when I bought it. Red front springs and Green Rears. (48p 68t spur - 50t pinion VTA gearing).......Appreciate the ability to fit such a wide range of gears without mods. I used it with that setup until recently in TC 21.5 and 17.5 blinky. It was instantly better to drive than my xray t4/13. I changed to the kit setup with the exception of 5.5 rear ride height, 450 shock oil, 4000 diff oil and 3rd hole shock positions all round. It now drives even better.

So to answer your question, If your selling it just set it up to kit spec. Who ever buys it will be impressed

Hi Guys. I just wanted to know something. Most of the guys in our club are racing VBC. I found thou that with my build the back toe-in is suppose to be 3 degrees and mine measured 4 degrees. I then went on to buy the 2.5 degree blocks and now it measures 3.5 degrees. Has anyone experienced this on their car and if so what is the problem?

I am using a Hudy setup station and we found that 2 or 3 of our guys measured the same degrees as i did.

It could be the center suspension mounts and how you screwed them into the chassis, it could be how they are drilled as well. It could also be the chassis holes.

you guys run on carpet? with the diff at 3K or higher, the rear easily breaks loose on power. This is on sugar water asphalt.

Also, I saw some setups from the TITC and saw the racers use HPI springs. How did they fit them onto the shock body? did they use the older wildfire shocks?

It really depends on the surface, grip levels and the remainder of your setup. I'm pretty sure that at least one of the setups on our site has 3k in the rear differential for medium-medium high bite asphalt.

Default Low Friction Belts?

Hi all,

Does anyone know if other brands of belts fit the VBC D06? I was curious about freeing up the drivetrain for stock sedan. So far I've installed Acer ceramic bearings throughout, and thought I'd see if anyone knows if Xray or Tamiya low friction belts fit? Another brand perhaps?

Thanks!
Samwise
