We are expecting them within the next week or so. We are also running a special offer.

As soon as we receive ours, we are going to build it, wire it and take some professional photos of this awesome new car... Can't wait!

we will also have them in stock next week, and have a complete parts list we just received, doing some cross referencing right now and coming up with the compatible parts from the list for the Flash as well as the Lightning 12....

Not to step on anybody's toes, but I actually created a parts compatibility list for the LightningF & Flash-04 cars last night and was going to post to my site first, but since you asked.

Keep in mind that this sheet may not be 100% inclusive.

My initial guess would be no as the axle bearing sizes differ. I can find out specifically a bit later today, or if MAD916 knows, I'm sure he will chime in as well.

Hello, anyone else already started/completed the build?
For me there where missing parts in the kit.
LightningF Front Upper Arm Mount A-01-VBC-5103
Already contacted VBC and parts are on the way.
This was in 2 kits like that, so maybe first off al check if the parts are in the kit. And contact your local dealer.

Building went very good. Only the servo saver, isn't that good. A little to mutch play i think. Wil put a other on on the servo.
Can not wait for the parts to arrive and give the car test drive.

We have assembled our LightningF kit and the Upper Arm Mounts were missing as well. These missing pieces are being sent to all of our LightningF customers and I will personally include these mounts with every LightningF kit that my shop ships from here on out.

On a more positive note, after building my shop's LightningF, I sent it to the best wirer (Our preferred wirer) in the business, BlackedOutRevo.

As soon as I have the LightningF back in hand, I will be get it photographed and upload photos here on RC Tech.

This new car is really a great looking piece of kit, can't wait to run it!

Thanks again to BlackedOutRevo for wiring this beast!

I was finally able to shoot some photos of my LightningF after getting it wired up by BlackedOutRevo.

The design of this car is impressive and it has some pretty trick features to really get it dialed in. My only wish for the car would be a black spur gear. Other than that, this car is going to be a beast on the track!

BTW, the LightningF is now available in our shop as well as a number of replacement parts.

Hey all: This new VBC F1 looks really nice. With all the new high end F1 cars coming looks like we need to create a new "pro F1" class (not that we don't have enough classes already). Also is CRC still the importer of VBC in the USA? Thanks

Really good car and easy to drive, only weak spot is the kingpin. the track was with roadrails and when you drove over one and landed bad it broke. so i would recommend to order extra kingpins other than that the car is bulletproof

Do the pod side plates accept normal IRS style ride height adjusters?
If they do will the pod plates fit the lightning 12?
