If i understand right, by lifting the top deck it can free up it's movement. The flex overall should be more and should work the best outdoors. Even 0.1mm under the top deck makes a huge difference.

If anyone disagrees, then i'm probably wrong!

Hi, how does this car perform, not much information on this forum about handling characteristics.
Cheers

The assembly instructions suggest a shim between the bearing and the axle in the front hubs. The supplied shims are probably too thick and where causing a slight drag in my car. Took the shims out and this really freed the drive train up.
Check your front bearings...

Front bearings are installed correctly. Talking about a steering knuckle change, the molding is slightly thicker between different batches, I'd say about 0.05mm but it was enough to pinch the hex to the knuckle and cause the slightest drag issue. I'm not talking lots here just enough to slow the free spin rotation down.

I'm not there yet..

My steering post was slightly to large to fit the bearing had to sand slightly..

Overall so far seems good the kit.

3rd part of the assembly of a vbc d09

The VBC D09 has already got its centerpiece, the drivetrain of the chassis. There are still missing the suspensions and various parts to complete the vehicle. Today it goes on to the beginning with the rear and front suspension.
... more

If you mean the graphite towers, yes the spacing is the same.

Hi,
Reading from post 1 to the last in this thread what is the general concensus about part durability? What is the weak point of the suspension?
The car I am looking is the new FF17 and it seems to use the same silver plastic parts as the D09...
Thanks!

I have run the plastic parts from the V1, silvers, golds and reds and the durability is very good. I have broken a silver c-hub and steering knuckle, but once I trimmed the DJC stub axle back so it doesn't catch board seems all was well.
I'm not sure if the hard bumper will fit the FF17, but it would be something I'd check into as well.
