Got some practice time today at drift track....getting better with the blind spots. Mounted some new T-Drifts on the stock D3 rims which are off set. Put those ob the rear coupled with +3mm off set fronts and she wou like d understeer needing more power to continue into the drift. Needless to say...would need to tweak it so I can drive it the way I like...or maybe switch them around.

it's called a mini JST and they can plug into the RX as the receiver has connections, signal positive negative just make sure the black wire is on the outside and the red is on the centre it should say on the RX which is positive and negative but the negative is usually next to the edge

get a FOW, change the front springs to something a bit harder, make sure your CVD's are assembled correctly and grind a flat on the pins then thread lock the grub screws

get the alloy rear pulley mount, try and find some alloy pulleys, get some good tires try raikou's.

THe body will really depend on your taste. ...just make sure it doesn't take inwards on the front since it's front motor, u need all the room you need in the front.

I Had to remove the front bumper to use this BMW E30 body
