From what I am guessing(painted concrete low grip and some bumps), you r looking for more grip/side bite?
Just start with factory base setup, try remove the suspension shims. it will do a great help for low traction. Also, replace inner spacer of turnbuckle with thinner one(from default 2mm to 1mm or 0), replace springs with softer one (Green) can help.
I have yet too run the car and was just seeing if any changes would be advised before racing due to the surface, yes it is concrete which has been painted with Boral coat. Thanks for the advice will most probable start with the shims under the suspension then inner spacers and then go with the springs.

Thanks for your advice good place to start from and what to look at changing it is really appreciated.

Has been done will be testing Friday night our track doesn't have as much grip like most cars are designed for so was looking at hints to what to change just in case I have probs. Like my EX runs has anti squat in it and have also changed roll centres and position of arms to get it close.

Just trying to use experience of people who might have run on similar surface if any.

I've recently been making some changes to the D06 to clean up the overall aesthetic. I also wanted to navigate away from strapping tape and devised a solution.

The 2.5mm chassis has been swapped again for the 2.25 to conduct more asphalt testing.

Anyway, here are the latest pics of my D06:













Items used were:

NEW Solaris SP35-EX tires (Amazing asphalt tire!)
R1 Wurks 13.5 Brushless motor (Best ROAR legal motors available)
R1 Wurks 8.4V fan wired into the ESC
Hobbywing V3.1 ESC
Ko Propo RSX One Low-Profile Servo
Silverback 7300 mAh LiPo
Futaba R614FS Receiver
Various VBC Racing products and hop ups including the Wildfire D06 Battery Side Adjuster Set and Battery Mounting Posts

Are those new solaris tires better than sorex? Tested several brands, but I have yet to beat the lap times of the sorex.

Thank you! You should see some of my other drivers' D06 cars. They are all unique and extremely fast.

Thanks, I find it much easier to clean and maintain a well wired car.

Honestly, I was skeptical initially because I am not a fan of their other pre-mount tires, but these are really really good! They have what I would consider a medium air gap and insert, have far more usable runs and cost much less than Sorex tires (Which I also like).

We have been running these tires for a while and lap times times are no different than Sorex, though one of our drivers bested his hot lap record with the SP35-EX tires.

They carry good corner speed, hold a sweeper very well and are just a flat out good tire.


Now to answer the questions regarding the battery mounts, these are Tuning Haus (Whom I am a dealer) battery mounts , which I have in stock, but have yet to list onto the site. I used them with the VBC Racing Wildfire Battery Side Adjuster Set:


This would be a direct bolt-on solution for the D05, but is not a bolt on solution for the D06 unfortunately.

I had to dremel away the gap between the two slider slots and countersink the hole on the bottom of the D06 chassis that supports the D06 battery mount.

Yesterday however, I was speaking with my long time friend MikeR (Exotek Racing) and was discussing this with him and he has provided a bolt on solution that I expect to work with the D06. I should have the pieces tomorrow, and if it works, I will offer them on the site.

One more thing,

I have been running our aggressive asphalt setup and have made some changes using 4 hole pistons with 600/550 or 550/500 oils + C15/E10 or C15/E20 rear suspension mounts and it has really given the car some serious steering. The car is extremely good in low speed corners and I've been able to carry much more corner speed around 180s and close some serious gaps.

The D06 is a very fast, durable, well constructed car with amazing steering and it responds well to setup changes. I am hoping to have some new asphalt setups for spec and mod here very shortly.

Thought I would post pictures first run tonight in practice time to see how it handles the surface, will make adjustments thinking about disconnecting the sway bars as well to see how it handles as most do not run them at our club.

*NEW* WILDFIRE D06 Touring Car from VBC RACING-dscn0619.jpg*NEW* WILDFIRE D06 Touring Car from VBC RACING-dscn0620.jpg

Lets see how many scratches on the new body after tonight.

Battery Modification

I used the the Top EX Graphite Bumper Upper Plate Set ( Product Code: PO-PCH019 ) cut plate in 2 and round off the end fits perfect with the Pro Amps battery as you can see and it is red so it will go faster, just need to drill through original mount using 3 X 14mm countersunk screws and all is good.

We held the Mile High Indoor Champs here at 5280 Raceway in Denver, Colorado this past weekend. I raced the VBC D06 in mod sedan, qualifying 8th and finishing 9th in the A-main. I am no sedan guru, but with some setup help from Dave Ehrlich and Keven Hebert, I got the car working pretty well (I just need to work on driving it!) Most of my changes were focused on making the car feel more 'direct' with more on-power steering, and I think we succeeded with those items. This was also the first big race using the new Gravity RC spec tires, which proved to be a great tire choice!

Changes from my usual setups include the following:
- Front diff with 2.5 million cst
- 0.5 mm shims under the front blocks, 1 mm under the rear blocks.
- 3 degrees of rear toe instead of 3.5 degrees
- 2 mm ackermann shim instead of 3 mm

Full setup sheet here:

Nice job on making it to the a main. I have also noticed that the car is very responsive on setup changes.
