Actually it works but need a bit modification.
You have to grind out the Screw thread of the set hole of fan mount first.

Guys, there is an awesome new adjustable fan mount coming from VBC very soon! Screws straight to the motor mount on the D07 and can accommodate 30-40mm fans, it's pretty cool!

Stay tuned...shouldn't be long

Nice aluminum hubs. Will they work on the front as a tuning option for less castor? And what is the difference between the active rear toe arms and front arms. They look identical. Why would you mold in the sway bar ball mount that will not be used if its a new part?

I think the rear arms are from the same mold they just have the one spot where there is a blank spot for a hole drilled.

Decided on the D07 over the BD7 and XRay. The price was just too good to pass up here in Hong Kong (over $100 cheaper). The kit looks wonderful, can't wait to get the build going.

What's the ETA on the aluminum chassis?

I'm running the box setup with all the shocks one hole up,, with 3000 in the rear diff and I really would like the car to rotate faster. Any suggestions?

If you haven't cut the little 'knob' off the steering knuckles, I would suggest doing that first to give you more steering lock. After that you could look at shortening the front wheelbase to 1mm behind the front arm instead of the kit 3mm. You could also look at using a red front spring and a little more (8.5mm to centre of the pin) rear droop.

Hope this helps!
Ryan.

You could also drop down on your diff oil weight try 1000 and see what happens.
