Mb models has taken over as the importer for vbc and I can get most bits for my d07 some for the d06 and loads for d08 if he hasn't got it he gets it in quite quickly

just a shame there isn't a uk team there is only one uk racer for vbc and it says he runs the ghost

Anyone know if the motor mount from the D07 fits right in to the D08 chassis

Thanks

No 07 screws in from spur gear side 08 screws in from motor side.

Awesome chassis! Switched from the BD7 2016 and haven't regretted the switch. This car has a lot of corner speed and so easy to drive.

Build tips.
- use a 3 mm reamer on all areas using the hinge pins.
- drill a hole in the shock cap for zero rebound
- be careful when gluing the front spool pulley cage on.
- use rubber orings under the ball cups holding the roll bar mounts
(removes up and down slop)
-pre-tap any holes using a standard screw which require an aluminum suspension ball end. I broke one (thanks linkless for the correction)

To clarify the above statement, use a standard screw to pretap any holes that an aluminum ball end will be threaded into

I've only got 3 race weekends on the car and my first thought is that the car has amazing cornering speed. I get to put some more time on it tomorrow and will be going to Reedy with it at the end of May.

Thanks, for the clarification. Do You mean ball stud? Are they weak?

They're not weak, just made of aluminum and combined with the new plastics being super hard, they go in snug.

Is the DCJ pin, with a flat spot, 2x10mm or 2x12mm? In the manual is says it's 2x10mm but VBC racing shows it as 2x12mm.
