That are raceberry towers with yokomo shocks, vbc don't offer long shocks and towers, the standard schock are great but in some conditions it's better with long shocks

Here is a video of my good friend Ryan Maker driving his D07 for the first time (white car on pole). He uses the standard shocks.

Antoni - I assume by "standard" you mean the "TBB" shocks that come with the kit?

This car intrigues me, not even 100% sure why, but very tempted to try one for next season.

Vbc does offer long shocks and towers the shocks from the ghost have long bodies and the short shafts. And the offer a set of towers for high speed tracks that raise the mounting holes just a bit.

Really digging on those new towers. Look great. Might have to get Berzerk rc to cut me some with the 05 bulkhead mounts.

I would like to see a side by side of the new plastics for the 07 from the 06. I am wanting to know if I should stock up on my 06 parts or if its just a material change not a design. But at $425 this thinfbisawesone and still over $100 less than an xray. It even includes DCJ's. Man what a bargain. Thank you VBC for not including the active rearsteer system that is a fad and will be useless for 97.65%
percent of us. Especially those that race with barriers. Those parts would only increase the cost of the kit and sit in my parts box or be sold here on rctech.

Wow.. that car looked like it was on a different level. Really excited for this car, my dynamics car is the best car I have driven by far.. and with the changes they made, this is going to be an asphalt killer.... Time to start saving.

There will be an active rear toe kit available after the release. All plastic parts on the D07 will fit the D06.

We expect our first shipment mid November. You can check out all the pics at www.vbcracingusa.com

I'll be in edmonton this weekend. Was almost a vbc guy, but didn't pull the trigger on one yet (was waiting for the release of the D07 to decide if the improvements are enough to sway me away from the value of the D06 Dynamics kit)

I understand they fit, but will the plastics change the geometry? I know towers and bulkheads are different, but concerned about the plastics.

I am running the D06 with the aluminum chassis, this weekend will be the first time running it on sweeps. With Sorex 28s which we run club racing the thing is a weapon. I have been told the D07 is great even on cheap spec tires.

How long has it been known that a new car was coming out. I asked some team guys that question before I bought my 06. They all told me nothing new in the works. This was only 1 month ago. Now before I even put it on the track there is a new car. WTF ? I will be selling it asap just so im not associated with such a shady group.
seems like VBC was all about take the money and run and see what happens.
bye bye VBC !
