Thanks Gridworks for hooking me up. Your personal customer service is awesome. Definitely above and beyond to put two cars back on the track in Virginia Beach.

Im not totally sure as I have not tried this yet. But here are my thoughts. It shouldn't change handling that much. Just seems like a wheel base change depending on which way you mount the caster block. Im going to mount mine forward. You have to use front arms on the rear. Drill 2 holes for the shock to mount on and the sway bar link. Then thread a long screw through the forward arm mount on the inside, put a shim on before you thread the link on. Again, I have not done this yet but this seems like the most logical approach.

I'm very interested in the new aluminum chassis. Both my brother and I usually race on a fairly high grip tight carpet track. Our D06's have performed extremely well so far netting us the 3rd and 4th fatest runs against a swarm of Xray's. Realistically we probably can't capture the two top spots due to the driving talent of #1 and #2 but the next 10 or so drivers below are super close to us and it would be nice to grab another tenth of a second to stay ahead of the pack.

The D06 Dynamics will be shipping later this month while the aluminum chassis itself will most likely be shipping in late July or early August.

What's the differences between the standard d06 kit and the dynamics kit?

Will the Xray Gear Diff Fit the D06? The reason I ask is I am getting one of these soon and I am coming over from xray, and I have a number of Xray gear diffs filled with different weight oils. It would be great if they fit.

The car itself is essentially the same except it includes a number of the most popular hopups that customers would typically purchase separately. It also includes both an aluminum and carbon fiber chassis plate for both high bite and lower bite racing surfaces.

The xray diff is wider in between the bulkheads then the D06's. So it could be made to fit with a little dremeling if you really wanted to use them, but isn't a direct fit.

So both chassis options come with the kit? Interesting... What is the expected price of the kit considering all the hop ups included?
