it's been 369 since the start of summer.

i have enjoyed running mine, pick one up!

I've had no dcj issues from box, I run the composite spool outdrives, and i only change them when they break (hard hard hits)

spare front c hubs, knuckles, arms, good to go.

I'm trying to get in touch with VBC Racing USA. I had an issue with an order that needs attention. I have tried emailing twice and have gotten no response. Could someone help out?

Thanks in advance

Bronson

If anyone is interested in a spare car, or thinking about getting this car, look here.

Dave is the best. I think he is now pretty much a one man show.

Hi SBH,
how do you balance out the chassis left-right? Shorty is in the 240g-ish weight area i think. That means a lot of additional weight.
Which front-rear weight bias do you prefer, or have checked on the scales? And at which position is it on the car? My TC is about 50,5% rear weight, but as i use normal size batts i cant really play with it. Thanks for your answers

Hi Worst87
I have moved my receiver so its behind the battery and the shorty pack is moved forward in the car. The rest is lead to the chassis (low weight) I dont recall the balance F/R, but for the next car I think I will try to move the shorty pack further back, and put more lead in front of the battery, to equalize the servo more.

Default VBC SORT THIS OUT NOW

I love my d07 however i have some major gripes that should be rectified - full stop, the end!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

1. Easy one - In the manual, set up sheet, website, and in a you tube article - set out exactly where you measure downstop - just like Xray, Tamiya, Schumacher... Surely this thread would have clarified to VBC that this is an issue

2. For F***s sake - what is the part number for the V3 C hubs - and where can I get them - the UK importer - who I really like - are none the wiser


I LOVE THIS CAR, BUT VBC ARE DOING THEIR ABSOLUTELY BEST TO MESS THAT UP.

BTW - XRAY T3 FRONT END IS A DIRECT REPLACEMENT - ONLY THING IS MOVE THE FRONT ARMS FORWARD BY 2MM

Just work around it, the starting, over ride height has been 5mm and 6mm for ever, go from there.

2. For F***s sake - what is the part number for the V3 C hubs - and where can I get them - the UK importer - who I really like - are none the wiser

If you look at the parts breakdown from your manual, the part numbers are V3-A03-P30270 and 271. If you look at part number (Version 2 D-05-VBC-0166) and look at the description of those parts they are actually the V3 c-hubs.

Why would you?
