i dont know why but the rims and leds look purple but there pink

Looks awesome can certainly see your experience with RC cars from these pics.
Love the paint job that would have taken ages to mask and paint, where did you get the masks from for your graphics?where did you get the oneway From?

I'm going to be running under lights as well, those pink lights would look killa under mine. Trying to make mine look more like a tuner, do you know where I can get tuner decals like blitz and brembo etc. This is only my third shell I've done so thats why it looks a bit amatuerish!

Yeah I can tell it's all paint, thought some was layed down from a mask sheet. can see at the front the freehand looks awsome. Can you show me how you've mounted the shell, cause your nose looks about as long as mine. Did you have to leave the bumper out or cut it down as I did?

And again can I ask you where you got the one way??

looking through all the one ways 3racing make for a likely candidate

this might work


It looks like quite a few of the sakura XI parts might fit like suspension mounts

here is a link to driftmissions belt guide for people looking for a replacement belt.
http://driftmission.com/guides/belts-guide/

here is another link to Team Tetsujin S3M Pulley Belts also on Driftmission.com
http://driftmission.com/team-tetsujin-s3m-pulley-belts/

One option is to change centre belt pulleys to 15T and use the Sakura Zero front belt which is a 522T belt.Or you can go the other way and change down to 12T centre pulleys and use the Sakura XI front belt 516T Changing both centre pulleys wont alter the CS ratio as long as both pulleys are the same.

3racing has released the spare belts now so we can all stress less about finding the correct belt for our chassis
http://os.3racing.hk/products.php?products_key=5992

found some killa body mounts

should have my pinion gear in a couple of days, so hangin to drift this chassis. those active hobby mounts look wicked and you can use them as contacts for your light system. might look into making something similar using rare earth magnets in a sleeve, you can get 10mm x 1mm Neodymium Magnets really cheap just finding a 10mm x 2mm sleeve ??

LOL!!
Iam in the same boat, ended up building my shocks even tho I will have to rebuild once I get the right weight and springs. Seems everytime I take my syclone out I come back and eithe rwork on the D3 or order something for it. Now I'm down to picking a body and springs so should be running next weekend unless I can come up with a way to hold myself off..

lol I'm gonna be rebuilding the shocks probably wednesday when the parts get here! should have the spur gear support plate and a hi speed servo comin' monday along with the pinions on tuesday then the shock parts and 78T spur and 22T pinion for the 7.6FDR but I'll leave them out till I get the hang of this chassis. been looking at CS vids some guys out there run 2.44 and 2.5 ratio

this will be the third time I've built these shocks lol

I'm going to buy one of those oneways sak-59v2 on tuesday let you know if it works once it arrives

Glad you guys found a 1-way that looks like it will work, I will hold off and make sure before I do anything. I've decided on the WRC body but not sure what wheels I will be going with or color to paint but will be getting the ABS stealth mounts.

when you say wrc is that a subaru wrx or a ford focus?(as in world rally championship) I'm guessing you mistyped and your getting a wrx
