I don't believe so. I think the factors affecting torque would be the power (Kv) of the motor, throttle end points (set from the transmitter), punch control (settings from ESC), and motor timing if any (also set from programming of ESC).

Hey guys, I got up and running last week and I am having a blast learning how to CS. Its very challenging but still fun. I've read through this thread and can't remember seeing a direct answer to body fitment. I know the D3 has a 256mm wheel base but what is the lowest or highest wheelbase that will fit the D3 well?

I would say they will fit but you will need some 6mm or higher offset wheels in order to look good

I would buy all the optional suspension mounts and start playing with them until you find which one works for you. I think it depends on your driving style and/or how you control your D3 and your suspension setup.

So, I don't think there is a "correct one."

look at race and drift japan they have it.

I have actually gone on to other mods for my D3. I have been running a posican setup on it for a bit now and have not used the yok type-c arms for a while
