Excellent thanks for that just what I wanted to know. Hopefully the d08 upper bulk heads fit the d09 lower bulk heads allowing for more camber link adjustment. And keeping body mount holes the same. Cheers

They certainly look like they will work, I never tried them but everything looks like it will bolt right on.

The combination certainly looks like a interesting combination although I'm not sure its cost effective (4 lower bulkheads, and one of the top deck options for a D09). I personally like the D08 motor mount over the D09 and this would get the best of both for me.

Hey I messed up measuring the D09 bulkheads on the D08. I never noticed, but I had all the furthest out holes for the bulkheads lined up, but didn't notice that the inner holes are about .05mm closer together than the D08 bulkheads.

Its so close but now I don't think it will work.

That was my thoughts would be easier changing out spurs with the vtd that's for sure

Thinking about picking up one of these kits (VBC D08 DE) to run USGT with. I am not very familiar with VBC TC's and am wondering if I should save up for the D09, or if the D08 DE would be sufficient. I'm not the best driver out there (obviously) but do okay and mainly just want to have fun. I have some VBC cars (12M, Lightning FX & Lightning10) and really like them...

What are the differences between the 09/08 chassis'?

TIA

If DE means the dynamics kit, then the differences are, lower bulkheads (with slightly different screw hole location), different top deck for better access to the pinion setscrew, motor mount and the screw tunability of it. Also it has a different floating steering assembly.

The none dynamics had the regular length shocks, high shock towers, and a slightly different rollbar attachment, 6 screw motor mount adjustment.

Either car works well. I think the D09 roller may be slightly lighter.

There is a D09 Dynamics coming out in May, which usually has a lot of option parts as standard package, sometimes includes both chassis options, all for a really good price.

So I'd wait and see what that one will be first.

If this is done wrong this will cause the upper deck to tweak and ultimately the chassis to have a tweak.

Take the upper bulkhead cap assembly off.

What I did was I loosened the shock tower screws allowing the upper bulkhead caps to be loose. Then I set the upper bulkhead spacing for 19 mm and carefully tightened the shock towers screws down in a X pattern. Then I take the other shock assembly and place it on top of the already completed one and used it as a template.

I then loosen the lower bulkheads to prepare for the upper assembly to be mounted to it.

Once both upper cap assemblies are finished I then place them on the lower assembly and screw them down.

I don't screw the lower assembly to the chassis just yet. I then place the upper deck on and screw it down slightly. What I mean by this is that there should be some up and downward movement of the upper deck.

Once the two bulkheads are loosely connected by the upper deck I then flip the chassis upside down. (Take off body posts for this)

I then have the chassis upside down and using the shock towers as points of contact on a flat surface. I then tighten the the lower bulkhead screws down. Flip the chassis over and check to see if the upper deck falls under it's own weight. If it dose then the chassis is good to go.
Thanks for that Edward,

How did you or everyone here get the spacing for the bulkhead at exact 19mm?

Any other Diaphragm+O'rings from other companies? we can use?

Relfex Racing for diaphragms and Yokomo blue o-rings are nice.

I'll have a new setup posted for the D08.

Yes, thank you for posting.

The D08 is using D09 FR suspension mounts. These mounts are slightly lower then the standard D08 mounts. If the progressive Red SMJ springs are too much, then simply switch out to SMJ pink.

I hate to ask this in the D08 thread...but does anyone know of what parts are swappable with what brand or the D08/09 with the D06?

Did some further testing and improved upon my previous setup I posted. I would say this is the best the D08 has ever performed. It was super easy to drive, had lots of steering and was very stable. I was easily chasing down BD8's, Xrays and Kyosho's.

It's worth trying out.

The setup will be posted soon.
