So, right off the bat I noticed that my O-rings for the diff instantly start to swell when they come in contact with the diff fluid; I don't think they are supposed to. The O-ring for my diff housing is too swollen to install. Is there a way to get them to shrink back to the correct size?

What diff fluid are you using? The ones on my d06 never swelled that bad.

The Diff fluid that comes in the kit. It's called Mr. Roche.

Weird, I never had this issue, and I used all the stock fluids as well.

Hi guys,

Since everyone is probably busy building their kits, thought i'd just shed some light on where to start in terms of setup.

The default setup is a fantastic starting point, however I've been testing furiously over the past year and a half and have found a setup that seems to work well at every asphalt track I've raced on. I have had some of my D07 drivers build their cars straight to this setup in both stock and mod and are stoked first run out! Most of this setup was developed from the D06, which I then translated to the D07 with some minor changes.

The main parts you will need (which aren't included in the kit) to use this exact setup are:

1x 7075-T6 Rear Inner Axle (49mm) D-05-VBC-0086
1x TBB Shock Spring (Red-Medium Soft) B-02-VBC-0134
1x VBC Dynamics F05 Suspension Mount B-02-VBC-0060-05
1x VBC Racing WildFire WildFire Front/Rear Suspension Shim Set (1mm,0.5mm) D-05-VBC-0032
2x Center Suspension Mount Shim Set (1mm, 0.5mm) D-05-VBC-0164

This setup is aimed at Med-high traction, however will work on low traction quite well, for low traction I will tend to change:

1mm inside rear camberlink shim instead of 1.5mm
0.5mm outer front camberlink shim instead of 0
5.5 and 1.5 Droop instead of 5.0 and 1.0
Test kit Orange front spring instead of Red (Track dependent)

This tends to generate more traction, however can make the car quite edgy if you make these changes on high traction.

Hope this helps somewhat, please feel free to message me if anyone has any questions about the setup. I can't guarantee this will work for you, however I have had great success with it, so I hope you guys do too!

Great Stuff. Thank You Ryan. I found mine pushed a fair amount with std setup so I am keen to try these changes.

Give it a shot! As Haura415 said, plenty of steering with this setup

I thought this car was very aggressive out of the box. On our us style carpet tracks, forward bite is everything. I tend to run a little more rear toe than most people do internationally to mellow out the rear end and provide more forward traction. Still has loads of steering

I've attached my setup from this past weekend

Finally got to run my D07 on Saturday.

I was almost upset with it. It blew my 2015 T4 out of the water with almost kit setup.

This thing is fast.

The F05 front mount is what worked for me also.
