Nice job on your chassis Pickled...I love mine and can't get enough practicing.
I did acquire an aluminum adjustable lower arm from my last order from broAdtech but haven't tried it yet. I am tempted to try it out on my D3 and see how it goes.
I got to shoot a little video at the track yesterday...too short though..will put together next time and post it

Pickled, how is that new flysky? I've been looking at it...seems nice.
You should start a new thread on that radio. Is the firmware on it good out of the box or does it need tweaks like the GT3B?
I've been using the GT3B but still stock other than reverse display and has been working good for me. But I had been itching for that radio.
...thought, comments, concerns?

Ok the new FS-iT4

The firmware on it is great out of the box, it's like FlySky took the mods done to the GT3B and added them to a better radio. It is more responsive than my C and nicer to look at. the best part is it will never need to be hacked as you can flash new firmware to it and also use it as a PC controller. The bad points are certain menu items aren't linked so you have to go back a page to select the other item. The touch screen isn't that sensitive but I still have the screen protector on it. over all I can live with those issues as once you've set up your car on the radio you don't need to touch it again, and it has a 20 model memory. This is a great radio the features it contains are worthy of a much more expensive transmitter. My only other beef is the wheel is bigger than my C and you can't change to an after market wheel as there is a lip that won't let you fit these smaller wheels.

Thanks for the excellent write up. I'll have to save up for that one now.

BTW, does it use the same receivers? Or would I need to buy a whole bunch of new ones?

Sorry forgot to mention that it isn't compatible with the GT3B/C reciever you will need to purchase extras they are priced at 20 bucks each

yes the car behaves completely differently and is much easier to induce drift

It turns in easier, doesn't understeer as much, when you back off the back wheels lock up like an e-brake and the front wheels keep rolling so you can flick it out for tight corners it makes a big difference and you'll have to re-learn how to drive it

Good luck finding one...someone else was looking for it and seems to be back ordered everywhere.

But for me....I definitely like the FOW also.


Also Pickled...I found my 13T pulley. ..it was attached to the old steel front gear shaft.
I want to reassemble my dampers and put in the pink alum shock caps and bits
