Default *NEW* WILDFIRE D06 Touring Car from VBC RACING

Wow, I can't believe there isn't a thread about this car!

VBC Racing is releasing their latest iteration of the Wildfire touring car line with the new D06.

The VBC Wildfire has won back to back ROAR National Championships (2012 and 2013) and the new Wildfire D06 recently won the ROAR Region 5 Championships .

The car is available for pre-order right now in the US and should be arriving very soon.

Here are some shots of the new D06 with more shots to be found at www.vbcracingshop.com on the D06 page.

























I will keep this first post updated for you guys as more news comes along.

It sure is and the quality is second to none. I was really impressed how nice the quality of the VBC kits are and that is what made me an instant fan. After trying out the spec r and having numerous quality issues I was so pleased when my VBC kit went together so precise and handled like it was on rails. I was new to onroad and the VBC wildfire made my introduction a real positive experience. I think this will be another great starter car and the price is a very good for the quality. Cant wait to get mine!

VBC is from Hong Kong, I'm pretty sure. CRC is the US distributor.

Yes, the quality of the VBC cars is definitely very high. I had been looking at the Wildfire for a long time prior to purchasing one and I am glad I did. I mean literally, right out of the box and setting it on the track, the car was pretty dialed.

I'm still running my Dynamics Wildfire, but I have a D06 on the way.

BTW, grippgoat, I don't think CRC is any longer the distributor for VBC Racing in the US. They are no longer on the VBC Racing site as a distributor.

One more thing I saw earlier today from the Asian Onroad Championship, Surikarn is TQ in mod with the D06:

Former World Champion Surikarn Chaidajsuriya did well this past weekend against some of the world's best with his D06 and other VBC cars. The event was round 3 of the Asian onroad Championship which features drivers from all over the eastern hemisphere.

Surikarn was TQ in modified with his D06 and earned a second place finish in the final behind Andy Moore.

If you do a Google search with Surikarn and Wildfire D06, you should be able to find an article and some pics.

Hey Albert, that thing looks good.

How do you do it? You seem to have a different car every time I see you.
