It's going to pretty interesting to see two VBC Racing F1s on the market. We are excited to receive our LightningFs within the next two weeks and can't wait to assemble our own.

We wrote our own entry regarding the new car in our Good Reads section that you can check out HERE

Can't wait to run it!

how does one adjust the caster and camber on the new car? the pics look nice, but I don't see anything that would adjust either caster or camber. Where are those adjustments?

It looks to me that maybe the plastic upper kingpin mount can be changed to set the upper position of the kingpin position. Perhaps a handful of pieces that will set caster and then can be moved inward and outward to lock the camber by tightening the screw and nut fasteners. Pretty detailed pics on the website but no manual yet.

Yes, the camber is adjustable via adjuster inserts.

Default Firball Classic

Just a quicky .... don't want to derail this new thread.

The Fireball Classic, held at Lincoln/ Nebraska, is going to include F1 this year. As long as enough turn up of course.

Look up Fireball classic on the Nitro on-road thread.

Thanks all.

Regards
BM

I wonder how this would be better than TRF101. The only noticeable difference is the extended top deck which will stiffen up the car. The price is certainly better.
