I noticed on VBC USA Facebook page that Yannic Prumper is doing quite well with the Wildfire D08 at the final ETS race.

I wonder what options he's running?

He is running a prototype according to redrc ets page.

"Running a prototype VBC this weekend which feature different material arms, Prumper said the car was ‘for sure a big step forward on the previous car’. With Carven Chow making the trip to Slovakia to support the Hong Kong manufacturer’s star driver, a change from a 3 to a 2.5mm swaybar for Q1 would give the car ‘a lot more steering’ with Prumper adding while making it ‘a little loose’ he was still ‘in control’ of it. By far Prumper’s most promising showing since his switch from Yokomo to VBC, his time 8/10ths of a second off old team-mate Volker, the former ETS race winner plans to ‘keep everything the same’ for Q2."

Pm sent zaraz. So here's a stupid question for you guys. I just bought a d08 and it's got aluminum rear hubs which don't have the brace running below the arm. Now my droop measurements are going to be more like a common car rather than the .5mm droop listed in other setup sheets...can anyone measure from the bottom of the rear hub brace to the bottom of the arm so I have a reference point? Thank you all, Peter

I do my droop setting as MM over ride height. Lifting the chassis and watching arm movement until tires just start to come off the setup board. This way its more consistant with runs tires and ride height changes.

I know that's the proper way but not how most do it and again doesn't give a reference point. Once I have reference point then I can go from there

I'm at work at the moment and cant get to it till Weds, but I think the easiest way to get the measurement you want would be to measure the pin diameter and divide by 2, and then the total length from the top of the pin to the bottom of the cross brace. Then repeat with the aluminum rear up right, so you can figure the measurement difference. I can tell you that I prefer the aluminum uprights because as long as you don't have a really crazy camber setting the bottom of the upright makes for a very easy place to take your measurements from. If your looking for a ball park setting for droop on carpet, I would try 5.6 in the front and 4.6 in the rear (off the bottom of the rear upright).

What type of track surface do you run on? Ive only run on carpet and have had my D08 on the new black CRC stuff which is major High traction. My frt droop is about 1mm-1.5 over rh and rr is right at 2mm over

I'll be running it on asphalt. If I had a plastic hub I could measure this up pretty quick but I just don't have one. Thank you guys for responses

Well D08 only came with the aluminum hub. I don't know if those running the car would change out to the plastic hub. So Im not seeing what your trying to do. A base line yes, I understand. But to compare to another chassis?

I can measure from the pin hole to the bottom, most lowest point on both the plastic and the aluminum and give you those numbers.
