Too many things are diferent, rear width more like it should and camber link positions are shorter, for example the longer one is in between the 2 holes of vbc and shorter is shorter than the shortest possible position vbc ones has.

yes you do, but it's easy to do. I did it without using any expensive tools.

Hi Airwave ,

Why did you mount the D09 bits in the rear ?

Can you elaborate on the steering difference on asphalt ? I race on asphalt and find the D10 more connected and reactive in terms of steering - also more linear

In the rear I had no choice, as my rear hubs were defective out-of-the-box (still no news from Tonisport by the way). It seems that some of the first batch were just badly mold and the arm's hole are not perpendicular to the bearings hole. So with that you gat asymmetrical toe-in, which is really a problem on the track (car is stoppen when turning left). So first I use the D09 arms with D09 rear hubs and D10 front knuckles. I ran twice or thrice and finally I lost the M4 screw and with it the bearing, the shims, etc.

So from there I had no other choice than re-install D09 c-Hubs and try. The car was indeed different in the front and absolutely less linear, and it feels better to me, especially in corners entry. It seems that it could be better on small carpet track but on our outdoor track I really prefer the feeling of the D09 :-)

Default D10 set up sheet

Hi All

Find my set up sheet - for outdoor , a bit bumpy - medium to low grip .

Works well , I used RC3 to get the base and tuned for the track .

I am thinking of going SMJ blue (2.8) in front and Xray 2.6 rear . This to get away from the slight death ring.

The current set up does away with a lot of camber gain and has super rear gent traction and lateral grip - maybe a wee too much

Default Shock Bladders

Hi All ,
I find that the black badders allow the shock to sweat on the D10 . Any feedback ? I was told by some of the ex team drivers to use the xray black bladders or maybe the vbc blue bladders .

Default First time out

Went out with my new d10 at the weekend and have to say itís quick lots of steering ( think thatís down to the steering was same as when I run a mi5 ) after few changes had a good base setup and could push the faster boys at my track that day

itís easier to drive then d09 but had trouble with build with arms being to big so ended sanding the edges that face the ff and rr hinge pin blocks to get to drop freely ( I donít mind fettleing to much plus itís better then to much slop)

also vbc forgot my alloy chassis but sent it next day with a free car stand worth $17 so canít complain

really happy with the car
