VBC has this way of making everything look not fugly and at the same time they incorporate small innovations with great quality. I will likely stick with them for several more seasons despite other nice offerings from competitors.

Crazy Idea....looks cool!

Possibly one of the smallest details, yet one of the most innovative features is the fan wire routing inbuilt into the motor mount. Best combined with the Wildfire D07/D08’s unrivalled adjustable fan mount, the wire for the fan can be routed internally through the motor bulkhead, meaning no messy wires, and no jamming wires under the motor. This is a very simple alternative to a normally very daunting process.

Do you have pictures showing this feature?

I'm a big fan of VBC.

VBC did a way better job of the bearing support sway bars than X-ray. You can hardly tell these are there.

They also mentioned now DCJ's. Interesting. I thought the old ones were great. Never had a problem on any car, even after a couple years of really hard driving. (And wall impacting).

It would have been nice if they could have incorporated the Ghost Evo's camber linkage though. Infinite adjustability.

Glad to see they also finally jumped on board with the puck style inner arm mounts. They look really good.

If I decide to go back to belt drive, I'm defiantly coming back to VBC.

Hmm, is it safe to assume that the new suspension mounts will fit older VBC chassis? They sure would be a nice upgrade for older kits.

probably not, looks like the arm mounts have inserts for shimming now.

If the chassis plate is drilled the same then they will fit. Since I never pulled the trigger on any of the optional mounts for my currents cars this would be a great option.
The Canadian dollar is in the trash rigth now so I gotta keep my current VBC's going.
