so you mean the d07 chassis is more flexible then the d06?

@korey: i couldn't follow my buddy at our local track because the rear was always to nervous.
i tried so many things but nothing helped.
after buying the flex chassis and some small setup changes i was on pace and could win.

our 2nd vbc driver has the same problem with his car...

The rear on my D07 is locked in. It is way more stable then I could ever get my D06. It really impresses me . The thing is a missile.

I agree it's much better then the d06, and easier to drive. I started with the kits setup and made a few changes to droop, camber and threw in a front diff with 2.5 million oil.

I've broken a left and right c hub. But I think this is in response to leaving it outside in my garage at - 20 then going to the track indoors... In the future I'm going to pull my gear inside on race days to get everything up to temp.

I broke a c hub and a steering get knuckle. I put the v2 stuff on it. With 12 cars to heat our races can get a little hectic. The D07 is a full second faster then the D06. I ran both last night back to back and the D07 was absolutely wicked.

I've only had my D06 Dynamics for a couple of months and quite like it, but you guys aren't making it easy to hold off on buying a D07. Lol.

I do recommend changing the bumper to the xray hard bumper. Is something I do on every kit. It just helps stop parts breakage if your not a pro.. Like me.

The VBC hard bumper costs $5. I bought two of them for half the price of a single xray bumper.

Good idea!

The VBC hard bumper has a cutout for a mylaps transponder holder, and the carbon fiber upper bumper plate with transponder mounting holes is only $8. Nice!

A popular carpet body is the Mazda speed 6.
