@fmm: when you´re in europe, why ordering from vbc.com?
you have to pay tax, etc.
i think tonisport should be your choice!
toni has most of the parts in stock and is my favorite shop

Toni sport is my favorite. Look for Uli, his service is second to none.

Great price, super fast shipping.

Thank you very much for all replies! I will look at ToniSport to see if they have all the spares .

One additional question. Do anybody have any experience with the ARTS?

I am thinking in buying it. The car is awesome but my track has very low traction and side bite so I find the rear end a bit loose. Maybe the ARTS could help... Any opinions?

Thanks again!

Toni is great but they don't necessarily have all spares...

On another note (and to bring the thread back to the front), we had a nice small, intimate, race last sunday - only 16 participants - the date wasn't quite the best pick, but a few fast guys were still there. Podium (and 4th place) was full VBC D07, thanks to the effort of the LHS to push the car to the forefront. Very nice raceday!

Tried the aluminum chassis for the D07 last night. Medium sized asphalt track, medium to high grip.

The car is more stable, faster in chicanes (I use the same setup as my carbon chassis) and can hold tighter lines with more confident.


Overall, I like it better than the carbon chassis. I think it's well worth a try.

I have heard nothing about a new car coming out any time soon.
With the pricing at vbcracingusa.com the Do7 is the best deal I have seen in years.

What do you want to see in the new kit if there's one coming out by the end of the year?

Only thing i would like to have is suspension mounts with inserts. Saves having to carry around multiple mounts.

Yes, that's a great point!

Or include all the suspension mounts for free, lol!

I am wondering if the spec R ones off of their car would fit.

Does anyone know if Yokomo Suspension holders will bolt on the D07 Chassis? I was thinking of getting this.

The only piece of the puzzle that would make the car absolutely perfect.

I doubt they will fit. But I think the ones from Xray T4 15 will. Going to give it a try shortly.
