Can anyone help me source the following VBC part number? I've done some basic google searching, but I haven't been successful. I figured a VBC guru here might be able to point me in the right direction.

B-02-VBC-3035

I ordered a few pairs of double jointed axles and they came without the outdrive side pins making them pretty useless.

In Germany you'd get them here: http://www.fast-webshop.com/tonispor...12mm-Shaft-Pin

Don't know about Texas though...

I have the old LightingF and to be honest that car doesnt turn no matter what setting I throw at it. Coming here and reading your comments saying the FX handles like its on rails sparked my interest in upgrading to the FX, but as Ive dealt with building 2 VBC kit, I do question the quality.
here are the results from the big chill
1st vbc lightning fx
2nd xray x1
3rd vbc lightning F

THanks for the link. That's the first place I have seen them available at all. Alex has been really willing to help so if he and I can't figure something else I may just pay through the nose for shipping if I have to. At some point it just becomes cheaper to order another set and hope they come with the pins.uggggh.

Thanks Alex

Also what's the difference between setting ride hight at the steering arms with the shims or removing the 1.5mm FRP spacer where the centre lower arm support is?

1.5mm shim affects roll center. You can add more shims but you will have to space the rear portion of the arm up. If you take the shim out your arms won't be level with the chassis.
Adjusting the shims above and below the knuckle is the best way to achieve desired ride heigh.

Thanks for clearing that up.
