    Working on some designs, need a little help though

    Hello, I am working on a 'truggy' type design, where the chassis incorperates the skidplates (of the VBS). It uses most UE parts that I own (towered VBS, Racer X 16mm, setbacks, high impacts, 8mm steel cv's, proline or ue shocks, 8spy diffs, etc) with a truggy design, with 2.5mm titanium inserts on the bottom. Nothing special, but I have some questions.

    So I was wondering if any of you guys know, what is the degree of 'kick up' the VBS front/rear skids have? My stock VBS skids are severly messed up, holes don't even allign unless I bore them out a little more.

    If anyone knows the VBS M4 screw mounting patterns, I would like that also (though I could take my own measurments, don't want to risk anything).

    You should check out 0700 saber, its an awesome design but I dont think it uses vbs though. He would probably know the degree of kick up.

    Better make sure you can still get the bulks, I think there is a transmission issue but not sure what it is. Contact 0700 and ask him.

    Any body have some suggestions on finding a set of the dom-tmaxx adapter bulkheads? I've been looking on Ebay and a bunch of other forums and haven't had any luck yet.

    Thanks, Kenny

    Good luck. They were scarce several years ago, finding a decent set now will be a chore. They weren't the most durable things, so finding a straight used set with even fixable screw holes will be difficult.

    doms are cool. i have 3 all hybrids. 1 pretty with all 007 parts, one waiting to be built, and a basher that gets the most use. pm 007 and watch ebay. you'll find a set of bulks.
