I aint gonna b▲▲w anybody, but having those for my VTA and USGT cars would be awesome. That mush of a reduction in rotating mass is definately going to help coming out of those tight carpet corners. What are the axles made of? The one part looks like the VBC aluminum part, I am refering to the axle stud.

Default Steering problem

Hello,

I have been testing and my car works really well with new tyre, but during the first battery of the tyre I see that I start to loose steering little by little, when I finish the heat I see that the rear tyre is nearly new but the front one is not so good, if i continue using the same tyres in the same possition this continue happend and I continue loosing steering, What should I change in the car to avoid this?
Thank you

It'd hard to suggest what to change when we don't know your current setup. Can you post your current setup and we will go from there.

Nice to see my review doing the rounds haha!

Its a really nice car, learning every time I drive it


I am annoyed a little bit with VBC at the moment. We basically lost the deal to be the main agents here in the UK. Its currently available to anyone who wants to bring a kit in, so seems like there isn't much being done to support the brand with a decicated supplier.
It feels like there isn't much support avaliable. Apart from EWS (essex winter series), I haven't seen much from the 1 VBC sponsored driver. It would be nice if they can establish a good team here in the UK

Anyway, rant over. I have had the car since February and still trying to perfect setups that work over here. I have seen some good ideas from some of you guys, will try these things out. The 1.1mm hole in the shock cap really intrigues me

Anyone else struggle to get consistent preload across all 4 shocks? After a meeting, they fill with air!

Has anyone experienced this? Different diaphram caps/ Different o rings maybe?

Have you tired drilling the 1.1mm hole in the cap like we do, and was posted earlier in the thread?

Raise the front roll center underneath the suspension mounts using 1mm shims.
