Regarding the " ghost " announcement... doesn't the blurred pic kind of look like a WGT ?

I guess we'll know in a few days...

I missed the o-rings on the diff...nice touch. The front kingpin design looks really good too!

Ghost was mentioned in the D06 thread...it's a VTA version of the D06 as I understand.

I notice the stock hingepin brace is 55mm, with options up to 58mm. When would you use, or what effect do the various versions have? I'll be racing on carpet. Thanks.

Different length hinge pin braces would be used depending on the caster block inserts you are using to lengthen/shorten the upper arm (and also change the upper arm angle.) In my experience, I would typically use the front brace to stiffen the front of the car and lose a little bit of steering compared to running without the brace.

Max and Dave will probably chime in with more hands-on experience and info, though.

We should start hearing from people soon. Kits are being shipped out. I've had mine for a couple of weeks and it keeps getting better.
