I've bent one, had to replace the left hand side of the front end. I don't remember what I hit, as it was 5 years between last use and rebuild.

If you don't have clean bearings, good transmission and a perfect car, trust me when I say this...someone else does.

I know one of our top Mod drivers swapped from his 417 to a Yok because he was sick of changing the motor mount that kept on bending under the power.

Also I have been running the D06 for almost a year and had some big hits the same hits in my 416we bent suspension mounts pulled screws out of the chassis broke arms steering hubs the D06 I have only had to replace one steering hub due to a hit so I am happy with the car and the making and quality.

And I have already pre ordered a D07.

with my first car trf416 I have my major hits and I' ve only have to change a couple of c-hubs and arms and some suspension axle (second hand car)
-with my trf417 I run it for a couple of years in 13.5 blinky and I'm currently running with in modified never break nothing despite the several hits, I've only replace plastic because they worn out with time (second hand car)
unique and first hit of my d06 I have to replace half a car (car bought new in box).....not a great impression of quality IMO

I just ordered a D06 Dynamics now that they are discounted to $369 due to the introduction of the D07. Can't wait to run it! Hopefully it will arrive before the weekend so that I can run it on Sunday. I'll order a set of D07 arms for it for comparison.

I have heard of a few people who have bent Xray bulkheads, usually from when they haven't fitted the bumper brace though

Does anyone one know what VBC stands for?

I've heard some crack up versions but nobody has said for sure to me what it stands for.

Just curious as to what it really stands for.

I asked this question on Facebook, here is the answer from Troy Mckune "Actually it is the names of the two founders Victor and Bernard Company. Sort of like Ehrlich and Mckune Racing (EMR factory)."

Awesome. Good to finally know. I had been told 'Very Beautiful Cars', 'Very Badass Car', 'Victorious Bonker Cars' and a whole heap more...

We'll congrats to Victor and Bernard because they do make Very Beautiful Cars.

Really? I have been told that he couldn't make it.
QLD racers can also preorder the new kits from us.

Only a couple more days until Shipping on the D07's!

I'm very excited considering how good the D06 is!
