Default Vbc racing usa

I see VBC Racing USA. Website down again. I see that on Facebook that VBC USA has merged with VBC RACING. So does that mean the person who was running VBC USA is no longer?

The openings in the suspension mounts is a lot smaller on the new mounts on the D09 so they offer more support to the inserts.

I run the destiny and have helped a friend with setting up of his D09 and found they both respond to change very well and are quite good quality, so the question is how deep are your pockets? And what do you get better support with close to where you are.

don't know if the pins where too long or not but I did shorten mine down and it did help a lot; but did not cure the problem.

It wasn't so much that the pin was breaking out the back of the insert, but the pivot ball that was blowing out the inserts. My take on it is this: in a crash, the arm presses the ball out of the insert. The arm simply slides on the pin, but presses on the ball.
Now that the new mounts have a smaller opening in them than the ball, insert blowouts should be prevented.

I placed an order from vbcracing.com when vbcracingusa was still up, and my order shipped from New Jersey. I'm not sure who is handling the VBC orders in North America these days.
