Ok I'm back again (woo)

Is a locked differential necessary for Sakura D3 CS or not? Also I heard of a one way differential what does that do?

Thanks

I would suggest to get 2 separate cars, one for on road racing and the D3 for drifting. If you try to do 2 things to one car, it will not be good at either thing, but mediocre...and it would be more involved process to switch back and forth between the two since you have to play with setups..suspension tuning and shocks tuning will be different between the two...so IMO it wouldnt be good to try and accomplish both with one chassis

Not really, I use Hobbyking motors in a lot of my cars and the most expensive one is $33 and it is just as good as the $120 LRP motors i have, if not slightly better as it runs cooler.

The Turnigy Trackstar motors (silver can) are really good and only cost 1/3 of the name brand motors.

I agree 100%. I pretty much am using these motors in just about everything. I have them in 7,8,10,13.5T and race them in 10.5 and 13.5 touring car. Compared to the 10.5 and 13.5 LRP motors that i also have, i much prefer the Trackstars, they run 30 Deg C cooler than the LRP's for the same amount of RPM.

Just rebuilt my shocks tonight and used TRF shock bladders and green slime, switched over the pink aluminum shock parts over from the original dampers.


Used 30wt front and 35wt rear

That's good to hear regarding motors, infact the turnigy trackstar were the cheap motors I was referring to that I saw on hobbywing

Also just wondering not many people seem to spray paint their interior parts any reason for this? I wouldn't want to have same purple or blue look as everyone

Thanks! No, I did not cut out the front for the fan. I had to remove the front bumper for the body to fit so I didn't want to weaken the air dam anymore.

I got the full set of the optional ones for the 3racing D3 spings. you can get them from most places that sell D3 parts. If you are in the US...tqrcracing.com is good.

You should test out and keep playing with that set of springs until you land on which set you end up liking to your driving style.
