I read that to get more steering you must cut a small plastic part of steering blocks...Your impressions of how the model turns?
Thank you
The d06 has ALOT of steering. I've always had to dial it out.

The front line up fine, but the rear are 10mm forward. I had to re-drill the holes. Its fine. They are far enough forward that the holes dont touch.

Hey guys, I will be placing my order this week for the VBC car. I have been reading the threads and looking on the fb pages and was just wondering whatpeople are liking more. I saw that there are new hubs coming out, and I also saw that people are doing the "active toe" in the rear. who all has done that and what have they noticed in the handling. Does this make it so you dont have to buy additional rear blocks?Looking forward to the build, will post pics when its done! thanks guys

I only tried the variable rear toe for a single battery pack. I didn't care for it at the time, so I removed it from my car. I need to do a more extensive test session sometime in the near future.

It still doesn't replace toe blocks, as you need them to change the overall width of the car as well.

Hope that helps!

do you know if VBC has anything to do with Roche as the driveshafts and shocks look very similar?

After the first outing with the Dynamics 06 all I can say is wow. Right out of the gate it was a great handling car. Carries way more corner speed than my Ghost does. Definately going to have to get used to it. Car responds to small changes in set-up very well. Just need a couple more track days to get it dailed in. I have one issue though; while I really like the look and functionality of the 06 front bulkheads and swaybar mount over the 05, I dont like how there is virtually no way to brace the front bumoer brace against them. If you use the plastic bumper brace in the 05 kit, there was about 1mm of space, then a solid platform to transfer front impact load to the chassis. The 06 lacks this. Is there any mod or parts to brace the front bumper to the hulkheads?

well we tested last week with active toe in and i think it is really a good option to try.
the car was superfast and stable and were able to win the national in the stock 10.5 class. we used a raceberry flex chassis with extra hole's that make it easy to use this. using this makes the car in stock also faster on the strait with only 1 toe inn and when active go to 2. only difficult part in this mod is redrill the frontarms. if someone liks to try schoot me a pm and i explane every step

Hi guys,

I've a question about the P05 suspension block for the wildfire D06.
Is the P05 block wider or narrower than the P00?
Ansteht question depends on the latest setup sheets i saw.
The most of them drives the car very narrow in the rear, what is the reason for that and what effect did it have?

Thanks for your help and greetings from Germany

Dominik
