Hmmm,...It could be. My D3 now just mainly sees the carpet track. Unless I just made some tweaks or adjustments, then I go for a short spin on polished concrete.

What body size is recommended for this kit, 190mm or 200mm?

It seems there is more selection on the 190mm side than the 200mm, but how is the fit especially for the tires?

both sizes are fine just make sure it's a 257 wheelbase. when you choose the offset of the wheels you need, I think the track of the chassis is 180 so if your shell is 190 then you will probably need 5mm offset rims but most shells are 195-198mm so you'd probably want 7-8mm offsets. the best way to find out is to measure your shell across the wheel arches so you can find the distance between the 2 sides then subtract the track of the chassis that leaves you with the total offset so you need to halve that to get the offset for both sides

NO, the kit doesnt come with the UWA. D44 means 44mm shafts but stock are not wide angle. You need to get the option parts to get full wide angle steering.

Question for the D3 CS experts. I just got my chassis and ran it today box stock except for shimming the center belt pulley mount. For some reason when drifting to the right the rear end wants to come around faster than when going to the left. Any ideas???

make sure you don't have any binding in the suspension arms...also check the spacers on the suspension arm pins..there might be more free play or less free play between left and right.
Also, you might want to use a set-up station like a Hudy style station to check your camber, toe and to ensure that they are equal left to right.

Are you sure you ordered the SAK-D331 Ultra Wide Angle axles? I don't mean to insult, but they look similar to the ones in the kit, but they have a larger bell that allows for a wider angle.

Kit axles: http://www.tqrcracing.com/shop/produ....asp?p_id=4687

UWA axles: http://www.tqrcracing.com/shop/produ....asp?p_id=5419

With the UWA and the aluminum steering rack, you can go lock to lock without any binding.

they are not the same.
those parts are not the same (read the description of the aluminum steering below from 3racing website)
and the wide angle universals are (SAK-D331)
