Ok so I'm not crazy haha. I was actually sitting at home last night trying to replicate your problem and was really confused! Glad you sorted it out though.

Thanks,

Yes, we do have the Orca fan mounts, but I have yet to list them on the site amongst other items because the DSLRs are being loaned out.

The revised Orca fan mounts are awesome with the new set screw design.

Wondering how the aluminum chassis would work on carpet is the USGT class? At least it would help add some extra weight (need to be at 1450g) down low and evenly distributed. Any thoughts or comments?

Im going to be using my Dynamics 06 in USVTA. I'm hoping the smidge heaveir chassis will help as well. I was also looking for something stiffer which is why I went the the Dynamics 06 alumunim chassis.

The Aluminum chassis will make the car easier to drive on the rug, which should be a big plus. You will also have a lower CG as well.

Keep in mind the importance of your shocks as the car may rely upon them more due to the reduced chassis flex.

So I incorrectly assumed the D06 body mounts would line up with the old D05 mounts.... Nope the rear mounts are about 10mm further foward. Oh well it wont kill the body I already had drilled, but those rear holes will be a bit elongated.

You can't just flip the mounts around to the back of the tower?

I tried that and the holes stilk dont line up, plus it limits the use of the outer upper shock mounting holes.

Hey guys,

Can someone tell me what the Set Screws do in your Center Pulley step 11? How do you set these up?

Thanks for your time

They secure the shaft pin in the center pulley drive shaft.

Default VBC Racing USA

Attention VBC Customers!

Just a quick update about VBC Racing USA.

The reason for this change is we have heard from you that it has been sometimes challenging to get parts in the U.S.. In order to better serve our customers we have built a warehouse in Vancouver, WA USA. We have been receiving shipment over the past month and we are ready to start shipping to you! We hope this change will make it easier for the end user to get the products you want.

In order to do this WE NEED YOUR HELP! Through this change we have lost contact with some of the Dealers and Hobby Shops. Please email or privet massage me if your a Hobby Shop interested in carrying VBC Racing products.

VBC Racers! If you already have VBC cars please let me know where you race them and what local shops are around you. Please give as much detail as you can. With your help we will be able to create a great network to support you!

Right, another thing folks, don't forget about the online dealers who have been there since day one, or two.

Thought I'd post a picture of my Wildfire D06. Its the Dynamics Edition but not used the aluminium chassis as I'll be running asphalt. I also have the Mi4 battery strap there, so I don't need to use tape.

Spec:
SP Reventon Pro 1.1
SP Reventon MMM V3.0 4.5T
KO Propo RSX one10 Red
Futaba 614FS
WTF 30mm on the ESC and 40mm on the motor.
Ti screws 98% around



I'll drop to a 13.5T but picked up the 4.5T for giggles! Excited to get this on the track!

On a note about the kit, for some reason I was actually short quite a few screws! Guys have been saying they've got extra ... I was short by a lot! That's one of the reasons why I went with Ti screws. Told the hobby shop and they were more than willing to get me more screws but told them not to bother as I was getting the Ti screws at the time. I just got a bit of an extra discount
