Hello all
Just away to place my order for my 3racing drifter, is there any other parts that I should order at the same time other than the 1 way front diff, this is my first drifter so can't wait, looks like a great chassis, very nearly got the teh r31, but just didn't fancy the clone chassis, this one on the other hand looks great, any more info on the middle belt being slack, any ideas on how to make it a bit tighter, bigger size gears or any other help would be great, thanks for any help

3Racing is going to be releasing a belt tensioner for it soon just a matter of either waiting or getting the zero tensioner but it doesn't have as much tensioning ability and you have to tension from the bottom of the belt

so if the zero oneway doesn't fit then will a oneway pulley work the same way?

is the zero oneway dismantalable, thinking maybe pull it apart and turn the pulley around?? lol

Sucks the zero's 1way dont work but I figured since they want you to buy more.
Mine should be here anyday too but I just placed my order tuesday.. ;-) Excited to the the quality of the kit but not so much for 2.14 CS. Thats way high for a guy just starting out with a 50/50 set up.

I have a CS calculator app on my phone that i use all the time. I don't think the pinion changes anything with CS but could be wrong. Do any pulleys work like the zero's or do we have to wait till they release option parts.

i don't own a d3 yet but couldn't you just rebuild the sakura one-way so that the pulley is on the left side? Looking at pictures of the one-way, it seems possible.

I buy my rims leds pulleys gears and belts from broadtech.hk. Shipping is a bit high but comes from Japan to Fl in 3 days. They dont mess around when it comes to shipping. They even send you a picture of your box before it ships.

I see alot of different pulleys with different number of teeth, I'm guessing you can have alot of different option when choosing a cs%. I'm kinda new and drifting a Sprint 2 at 50% cs right now and 2.14 cs seem very high. It would be cool if 3 racing ( or someone here ) would put out a chart with differenty pulleys telling people how to quicking figure out there cs.

I also see they are going to off a pre assembled version soon, wonder if any other 3 racing cars will come preassembled? http://os.3racing.hk/products.php?products_key=5977
