I'm trying to get Bill Jerics' setup, he's super busy making sweet parts


I'm running mostly the kit setup with the front kingpin change mentioned. I also swapped the center shock for a tamiya full size shock and the exotek black parts so it matches, really helps in the bump area's

I also changed the side damper lube to 10k, works better than the kit lube as well, seemed too thick

Would really like to see some of the ETS guys setups

Liking the build so far. Going very smoothly except a few parts missing from the box, big thanks to gridworks racing for rushing the parts to me. Should be testing on Saturday.

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!

If you have any question or need help with your VBC Racing products please get a hold of us!


Sincerely,

Dave Ehrlich
Owner

Not surprised at all

I just tried the original tamiya F104 rubber kit, 51399, tires on the front this weekend and MAN they work good, more steering and more stable. My track is super hot and they are consistent through the whole run as well, where as the pit fronts overheat about 3min in. I still ran the pit 572 rears.
