No it won't. All the suspension pieces are the same as the D06.

I really like the white colored plastics. I think it looks much better going with a silver color aluminum, and a very neutral white, over an anodized blue, orange, purple anodizing and black plastics. It just looks so sick!

Agree. Looks the the wildfire with some minute changes. Wish they would have used the newer bulkheads,motor mount,swaybar collars and etc. But its the only production VTA car that I know about.
