This gives you the ability to do a lot with setup. More or less toe, Arm sweep, narrowing the rear end ect.

Don't forget P00 or P05.

Yes, this is true. If you race on very high traction surfaces, the P blocks are really nice for the front. Instead of a separated mount, they are one piece. They stiffen the front of the chassis a bit.

I am new to on-road and I have one of these cars on it's way to me. I have been looking at some set-ups to get an idea of how I should set the car up when it gets here. I also picked up a Kyosho TF6 and I have done the same for it. I am just wondering why there is not a place on the set-up sheet for the sway bar end adjustment? All the other touring car set-up sheets I have seen have this and the settings on them seem to very a lot.

Sway Bar end adjustment?
Is that how much of the Sway bar is left sticking out of the connector?

Yes or how far it is from sticking out. I have seen set-ups anywhere from 3mm out to 3mm in.

This link has a set-up with a +3 front and -2 in the rear:

Looking to make the jump to the VBC Widlfire D06 soon. The rest of the summer racing should be exciting!

That's good to hear. I've been eyeing it up for a while.

Wildfires qualified 1-3 last weekend at DRCW in Chesapeake, VA. First weekend with the car and ran 3 or the top 5 qualifying times including setting TQ in round one and resetting it in round three. Very excited to start making some adjustments to really get this car dialed in. Great quality, awesome styling, and very nice to drive. Good job VBC.

I picked up a lightly used D06 this week. Love the fit and finish, it handles awesome with the stock chassis and I am ordering the flex chassis next week. One thing I took a hit in the back corner at the start of a race and it snapped a rear arm. Is this something i should worry about?

I can't wait for the new one with the aluminum chassis.

My brother and I have been running the D06 since it was released and have never broken an arm - front or rear. The car is very durable. Even steering knuckles are hard to break - tougher than Xray and way better than Tamiya.

It was a weird hit. I am sure it was a fluke but I wanted to make sure. I love the way it drives, it seems to carry more corner speed than my Xray T4.
Little harder on tires on pavement though. I chalk that up to being 20 grams heavier.

Another great day of racing. Qualified 3rd in a very tight field. Finished 2nd after some good racing. Started making some adjustments on the car and it was evident with lap times. Car got faster and never felt out-of-control. Still have a lot to learn with the car, but loving it every day.

Mark at Timezone Hobbies has two in stock according to his website, but he's on vacation for a little while. All orders are on hold until he comes back since it's a smaller operation.
