Sounds like there is a new car coming out to replace the VBC Ghost. I'm curious about when a dynamics edition D07 will be hitting the market.

I had also heard from someone that a Nitro TC may be in the works.

That is clean looking setup! How do you like the ORCA speedo? Is it the V3? I was thinking about replacing my Hacker with it.

Would the D07 work with normal servos? Trying to save some money and reuse my standard size Futaba servos but not sure if this would severely limit the space for esc/receiver and/or throw the balance of the car. All the setup ive seen uses a low profile servo.

The low profile servos gives you enough room to mount the receiver on the bottom deck. Depending on the footprint of the ESC and receiver, it might not fit on the bottom deck.

Default binding steering???

Guys, my steering assembly moves freely, full lock, left and right, but binds up to almost no movement with the TJDs (Two-Piece Joint Drives) installed. I removed them and noticed, that, if you move the axle left and right to simulate steering, the inner axle moves in the opposite direction. I believe this is causing the binding when installed in the car. Has anyone else experienced this problem? Is there a fix???

I run a fullsize servo no problem. Just all depends on the size of your receiver and ESC. I use a KO KR-211 receiver and Hobbywing 3.1 ESC and everything fits fine, with the transponder in between the receiver and ESC too.

In my last kit I had the same problem, after looking i noticed the c-hud had no beveled side, so when turning the tjd's hit the chub, I dremeld a beveled side in the hub and problem was solved

just check if you turn if the tjd hit the chub, and if the chub at the straight side have a bevel, if not dremel one yourself, you can check with new one what i mean

I wanted to know how much material you need to dremel out? That's why I asked for a pic. I could not locate one in the VBC USA page in the book.

Looks like Jimmy's car. I wire mine up exactly how he does. Heck... I even have all of the same electronics!
