This is because the one way bearings still have some drag while 'disengaged'. Not much, but enough where it will spin the front wheels in reverse with the tires not in contact with the ground.

the only reason it keeps spinning is that it is in the air and not loaded on the ground...if it is on the ground and you hit the brakes..they will function as they are supposed to be..to freewheel and in effect give you the handbrake effect.
In reverse, it will feel weaker since on the rear wheels are giving power to the car and not the front wheels since the FOW just freewheels the fronts. They just look like they are spinning when in reverse since it's up in the air and there is no resistance.

Hey guys been creeping for a while. I feel like an annoying newb asking but here it goes. Been wanting to get into the RC drifting scene for a while now, ever since I saw the Yokomo cars on the tuner forums years ago.

After much debate, between the D3 and MS-01D I decided to go with the D3 and fix it up how I want it.


I've got some questions about the D3 kit and what is recommended with it. So far this is what is on my list to order.
Sakura D3 CS Kit
FOW
SSK Driveshafts
Ti Gearbox shafts
48p 18t pinion gear
Belt Tensioner
Purple/Pink Springs
0.5/1.0mm M3 flat washers
5mm suspension balls
Alum bulkheads/steering rack

Any other recommended parts to pick up to save myself trouble down the road?

I'm also getting a 200 wide HPI body so what offset wheels do I need and do i need wheel spacers?

What is a good motor/esc set for this? (I've only driven nitros)

What spare parts should I order to have on hand? like belts and pulleys.

Any other tips?

Thanks guys!

Hello Grapist and welcome to cs drifting First of all i think that you listed pretty much everything to get the D3 in a good level but i suggest that you take a 19T center rear pulley in order to reduce to CS ratio which is very high on this chassis . Now on the motor/esc section .. I strongly reccomend that you take a brushless SENSORED combo because in cs drifting precise throttle control is a must I suggest that you take 8.5 to 13.5T Motor . 8.5T would be too powerfull imo . I use a 10.5T Hobbywing Sensored combo and i am really happy with it . When you decide how much Turns your motor would be then you need to decide how much Teeth your pinnion gear should be . For me 10.5T i used a 24Teeth pinnion gear .. The chooise is yours and depeneds on what surface you play . Also i would take a front belt to have in spare cause they tend to wear more than the others .

*phew!*

I just finished reading all 139 pages of this thread. Yep, I have a D3. It's been pretty hopped up, only a few things to go and it'll be like a display piece for the 3Racing catalogue.

Considering doing the KPI mod next... we'll see.

I would suggest the Ultra wide angle CVDs instead of the SSKs since I don't think the SSKs give as much angle as possible.
And for the belt tensioner, the rear bearing holder with tensioner built in might be the better option
Also extra set of belts...just in case

Check for binding or a bad bearing.

also check if you are using the FOW and if one of the bearings are shot..then you would need to replace the FOW..it's happened to me.
check for any binding..and make sure your links are equal..maybe use a set-up station.
