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.
