Glad to hear that your ESC is back to normal, I'm running on the Reventon R, after 3 weeks purchasing my Reventon R combo, SP came up with promotion for Reventon Pro combo which the price is on par with the R series, the video you posted can't be viewed

I'm about to order a Hobbywing 13.5T motor for my D3, but before I do I was hoping if someone could tell if the wire connector configuration will cause an fitment or routing issues for the wires? I'm not sure what the mating connectors look like so it's hard to tell. It'd be great if someone has some installed pics!

Fantastic! Thanks a lot for the info! I think I'm sold.

So you're running an 8.5?? Wow, I hope I don't regret getting something as slow as a 13.5!

you won't be disappointed the 13.5T has more torque and you don't need speed for a drifter as it's sideways the majority of the time

Yup, pickled is correct...right now I'm using the MMM Competition V3 10.5T motor.
So, that's just in between the 13 and 8.

Pickled, do you get some chatter on the wide angle (MST axle/R31 dogbones combo)?
there seems to be pretty good play in the middle where the dogbones are sliding on the pin inside the axle. Did you do anything about that?

I got to try out the new carpet drift track at my LHS (Sheldon's Hobbies) and it is an awesome track! I posted a quick vid of the track layout.
There are some blind spots, however. But, nonetheless, it's still an awesome track.
It even has a Fast&Furious 2 leven garage parking type section in it....and it's dark underneath there...so, it adds that element where it's hard to see your car

I've definitely noticed chatter at full lock. It seems like the dogbone "skips" when it hits the pin in the axel at full lock

Only at full lock I have my end points turned down a little as when I go full lock it induces switchback instead of controlled drift.

mjfang we are not using standard CVD we made a hybrid extreme wide angle CVD if you experience chatter buy some SSK's

I'm currently running the 48.5mm R31 CVD with the MST axles as recommended from eunique, but I understand that you were the one that gets the credit for finding the combo, so thank you pickled!

I've done the same and turned down the endpoints as well, and it helped

Got my Reventon Pro/10.5 combo installed and wired up the fans. I got the WiFi card but haven't hooked it up yet.

Changed the look a little, different wheels and more camber.
