Pickled. You can get a set of robinson pinions on ebay for like $10. It brings 6 i think. Dont waste money on 64p. Not worth it. More for carpet and clean tracks. Could strip or wear when running outdoors with sand and pebbles

A 108 64p is very close in diameter to the stock 48p 80t. I 112t would probably be exact

What weight did you guys use for your shocks. Also what shock springs would you guys recommend switching to since the stock are so soft?

I used the stock 1200wt oil up front with the stock orange springs and the 300 with the white spring in the rear. Soft is what you want for drifting.

I would never buy from HKS again.I've had nothing but problems with these people.They take your money a day later they send you a tracking number and nothing ships.They wont answer the phone or emails.I found a online hobbyshop thats stocking 3Racing parts.If he doesnt have it on the website give them a call to see if he has it in stock.I dont think they have everything listed on there site yet. The website is HotShotHobby.com They are located in Marietta, GA

I had same problem with the soft shocks on the front rebuilt them with the two hole pistons and tamiya standard shock springs still feels soft but at least not touching the the deck now! I also used 3racing shock oil that comes with the 3 racing ta-04 50mm aluminum dampers i use on my tt-01 not sure what weight it is but I'm thinking of getting some yeah racing #2000 shock oil. the standard front dampers are so soft with the motor in it touches the deck and doesn't raise back up even with the adjustment wound right down. the back is nice push down and it comes back slow but just right. I can get two tamiya pinions from rcmart (keep plugin')for 9.70US + 4.00US postage. They are 18T & 19T 48P think I'll get them tomorrow then wait a week to try the beast at least it will give me a chance to get some paint and prep my new Nismo R34 GTR Z-tune shell.

with the 64P gearing then I'd Probably need somthing like a 28T or 30T or bigger pinion? thats to go with 110T 112T 64P spur only a guess it's prob more likely in the 40's.
Who runs a drift car in the dirt? I've learnt from my TT-01 how filthy they get drifting in the driveway, there's no way my D3 will ever get run outside unless it's on lino or that outdoor dancefloor type flooring. I have false floorboards made of linoleum in the house nice smooth, and I sweep it before running the car cause they pick up everything. The track at the LHS is a bitumen/rubber compound. I need to find a wicked smooth cement floor like in a shopping mall or hospital to run it on.

Sounds like I need to order up some springs. Any spring kits you guys would recommend?

Pickled I am using a 108 with a 27 pinion

I strongly believe there is an error in the manual with the shock oils.

1200 s/b front
300 s/b rear
3 hole pistons
collars 3/16- 1/4"screwed down
0mm droop rear
1mm droop front
=nice 6mm ride height

build it like the manual with 300 in in the front shocks and the front end plops

I put the 1200 in the front still plopped the springs aren't strong enough either tried putting the rear shocks on the front and they touch the deck I think its the weight of the motor. my motor's pretty hefty, gonna try my ta-04 shocks on it later swap with the TT-01. I just tried the springs of the ta-04 shocks and they are a bit harder so with the adjustment it sits off the deck and is ok might leave it that way a little soft but works
