Any good USVTA setup sheets around for the D06 on ultra-high grip carpet? Lou's, the Gate, Cleveland style traction.

That motor mount and toe blocks Seriously, since all touring cars kind of look the same nowadays, why can't manufactures at least do what vbc has done and make there parts look stylish

The new motor mount and hinge pin blocks look awesome!!! Now they just need to add vertical ball studs for the sway bar mounts and it looks like a new chassis for me.

That rack looks pretty cool. It seems that this car might be looking better for outdoor with the way it looks like they are trying to put some flex in the chassis. Also are those different rear towers? It look like an extra hole right near the bulkhead attachment screws.

The difference between a .5mm Blitz and a Lightweight (.7mm) body is ∼25 grams.
Yup, removing up all that weight up high, and placing more ballast down low on the chassis, you can really feel the difference thru the chicanes. The transitions are quicker.

But this is coming from just an average driver, take it for what its worth.

So would this new car be the D06.1 or the D7? What determines a new car vs an update? I would say new car in this case since it looks like a new chassis has to be used, and the center bulkheads are different. We cant see the other side of the car, maybe a floating layshaft? Sure looks like the other center bulkhead is missing.

Associated changed so much on the 6.2 it should have been the 7. Every T4 update is so signifigant its cheaper to buy a new car than update an existing one. So we should be on to the T7 now as well. But I
guess when you have a car as good as the VBC you dont have to change that much that often.

I just bought a Dynamics a month ago and love it. Even if a new chassis comes out, the 06 is awesome. If you get the Dynamics 06, the only tuning parts youll need to buy are shock and diff oils. It comes with all swaybars and shock springs, and the two/three most common toe blocks. It even comes with DCJ's and the carbon and aluminum chassis. You cant beat that.

Agreed, it is a good value.
