84 pitch? Is that smaller than 64p? Damn thats some super fine gear mess. Why would you need anything like that. Unless you are looking to get just that much more gesring options. But changing by 1 tooth at a time with that pitch would result in very little change.

That's basically what they are made for... Finer more accurate gearing adjustments.

Troy put me on the list. The D06 is nice but the D07 looks amazing.

So it was mentioned that one of the new things will be "harder" plastics. Does this mean stiffer (more brittle), or was this meant to mean stronger. After the upgrade to the V2 suspension parts, I am not seei g a need for a return to harder plastics. I broke several V1 C-Hubs, spindles and arms on my Ghost and D05. After I changed all the parts over on my Ghost, and got the D06, I have a bunch of spares I have yet to use. My car handles great on carpet, is very durable, and I thought you would want more flex for low traction asphalt. So why the need for "harder" plastics?

Hopefully it is stronger less flexible plastics. The harder suspension pieces should sharpen the car up on carpet. I love my D06 but it does feel different then my xray did but I am faster with the D06 though. It carries more corner speed for me then my T4 did. That and the D07 looks way sexier then the T4 '15 and if history is any indication for a lot less money.

Pics of the new motor mount released (its stupid hard to upload from my phone). I looks pretty cool and robust. But I dont see a place for the fan mount to go. I guess they decided its ok just to shoe goo one to the chassis now? Or use an aftermarket mount like the Orca clamp type? Thats would be ashame. I really liked how VBC thought of making a fan mount specifically for their own car in the past.

I already messaged Troy saying "Take my money now!!!" But he is waiting for the details of the release.
