It's Not a D09 chassis. It looks like the Smokem Racing Prototype chassis I had....

I use the stock parts which work very well, not sure why you'd want to change them, but I think you'll have to do both, the cup and ball as the VBC is pretty big compared to most.

Not sure why there is interest in the chassis swap deal, I think the majority of the flex adjustment is achieved via the motor mount itself, so just changing the chassis plate sort of defeats the whole deal.

This place, https://gripworksrc.com/ has lots of VBC parts, in Western Canada. Fast and inexpensive shipping.

I agree, that is not a D09 chassis, more of a D08 if anything.

Reason I'm looking at other company is on my last race I have bent the turnbuckle and I want to race again ASAP and didn't want to wait for the shipping.. just wanted to walk into a hobby shop and pick up what is available.. and I also have snapped off a ballstud (gorilla fist..lol)so I replaced it with Team associated 5mm ball stud .. nothing against VBC stuff.. obviously I drive one!

Those are the ones I need... but I'm thinking to try Titanium this time..
ball studs I already changed them with Team associated "heavy duty 5mm"

The ballstud size seems to be proprietary to VBC, haven't seen anyone else that uses that size. The rest of the hardware is pretty standard sized metric, although lengths could vary.

Out of interest do any other diffs fit the d08 or diff internals from other makes?

Just bought a D08 and it leaks. After rebuilding it three times it still leaks. My D07 is going on three full seasons and doesn't leak a drop. Got any tips?

Thanks in advance.

I leave out the white o-ring and use a little green slime around the seal. It stays pretty tight, but honestly I refill my diff quite often trying different weight oils

I used fine grit sandpaper (400 grit) on a hard flat surface to lightly sand the mating surface on the diff housing, and used green slime on the orings and mating surface. I've not had a leaky diff in any of my 4 vbc's. I'm not sure how my d08 diff doesn't leak though, cause the outdrives have a f as ir bit of play in them after running 400 packs through it.

Does anyone know if the new VTD for the D09 will work on the D08? If so, I'd be interested in trying it out.

I don't think it would be a straight bolt on option without modifications. The bulkhead screws are spaced closer together. At least thats what I found when I tried a D08 deck on the D09. I have one coming so I can try it on both cars and report back.

I do think they would have stated that it would work on either car if possible though.
