make sure the arrow direction is pointing to the front of the chassis as this is the direction the belt turns when going forwards

Will correct this tonigt

I was wondering why the MST MS-01D Pro and Yokomo DIB is not much discussed in this forum, aren't these a good drift car too?

this is a purely D3 thread I'm sure somewhere on the forum they discuss them? I get on driftmission for those topics tho. I'm getting a XXX-D VIP in about a week or so!

I took some video of my local drift meet we do on Monday nights. My buddy chased me around in a Tamiya M03 with a camera mounted to the front, and later in the clip I have the camera mounted on the roof and side of my car with the RX-7 body. There is another CS Sport in a few shots without a body.

Yeah I've searched in other categories in RCTech as well but not many discussing on the specific MS-01D Pro and DIB compared to D3, the XXX-D VIP is shaft driven, how does it perform when compared to D3?

Found some useful info over there, I just placed an order from Banzai Hobby for Yokomo DP-DIBG DIB Gunmetal at USD $383, wonder why the price is much lower compared to other shops, hopefully this chassis is good

Pickled, didn't you order a Reventon Pro combo also? Did you get your shipment yet? Have you tried it out running your D3 yet? What do you think?

I got it it was good till it went bang and I mean bang. I must have picked up something conductive the time before and with the jostling in the car it must have got between the + and - terminals when I plugged the battery in it went up in a puff of smoke and a loud bang the terminals even got desoldered lol so back to my HW and it has reverse intermittently so thimking about buying a keyence tachyon airia now. the MST XXX-D is out of stock at RC-ART spewin was $490 instead of $640 every where else so might look at getting a decent radio instead and a 180SX shell?

Oh man! Thats too bad bro...sorry to hear that about your speed passion.
That XXX-D looks nice...but I'm not too sure about shaft driven. Although I'm sure it's an excellent drifter! ...great price too.

Monday bump for this thread....

After a few months of lurking in here and reading up, I FINALLY placed my order with TQ for a D3. I added the UWA CVDs as well as a few extra pulleys so I can play with CS ratios. After this weekend I'm hooked!

You want to see what the sparking D3 tires look like in action? I borrowed a set from Tommy R this weekend and slapped them on one of my Schuies for an impromptu drift meet.

Check it out here: http://youtu.be/Vg8QyjeXa4Q

Been running my Sakura for a about a week now, and I'm really liking it. Switching to a faster Savox SC 1251 servo really helped me to be able to catch my car in transitions. I did notice when I was running and I would punch the throttle real hard I heard a clicking noise, started looking around and none of my belts were slipping. I took out some of the throttle punch and it stopped, not sure what's up with that but whatever haha. Here's a few pictures of mine now that I have all my electronics, at the next meet I'm going to add some bullet connectors and shorten my wire leads as well.

setup
Motor/esc: Viper VTX10 13.5T
Servo:Savox SC-1251MG
TX/RX: Futaba 4PK/R604FS
Chassis mods(so far) front one way, center tensioner, and rear bearing bulkhead.
