yes, it's a ball end tool. I'm chewing up ball ends using pliers.
I'm going to try 1.87 CS ratio...although I am feeling better with the practice I'm getting with the standard ratio. LOL!

so, I probably didn't really need the other pulleys. oh well.
good to have stuff to try out and tweak!
Yeah it's always good to have extra bits. Don't forget to grind flats on the pulley shafts and you'll be able to space the rear center one so the belt rides more in the middle of the pulley
Have seen on the D3 page of 3Racing site the RACE tab under it a guy used the chassis and came third I think in the Kobe Super RC Drift Race he was running a 1.48 CS ratio

re the D3 LE I put up earlier. I asked the seller a few questions 1. he says all 3racing parts apart from discs and 2. the shocks aren't the same as the image and infact are the same adjustable shocks as the D3.
He must work in the factory in taiwan and pinched a few maybe unreleased as of yet! or the ssg is from the prototype?

I got my alloy suspension mounts (front is a zero 0* rear zero 1* and the XI seperated rf and fr) and tamiya suspension balls as well as 1mm and 0.5mm washers I used to shim the suspension pins they fit great and no movement at all.

YES, I read that..pretty awesome!

That's good to know...I thought the chassis and upper deck were fiber glass and not carbon?

I got my alloy suspension mounts (front is a zero 0* rear zero 1* and the XI seperated rf and fr) and tamiya suspension balls as well as 1mm and 0.5mm washers I used to shim the suspension pins they fit great and no movement at all.
nice! I have those installed already...but I am running 2* in the rear..I have 0, 1, 2 and 3*....I am testing out the 2* right now. seems to work good. I might have to try the 1*
I finished installing the front one way last night. But, have not tried it yet.

I had to loosen every screw on the front bulkhead to get the zero front mount in as it has locator pins where the middle screws attach. It just touches the motor plate, but it's in and solid now! I used heaps of boron nitride grease in the socket so should stay wear free for a while. lol you showing off those ssk's.

Man I've chewed through three sets of tyres since I built this chassis mind you two were already pretty low from another car I have to use the ones that came with it now, stupid sparking tyres! I have a set of yeah racing tyres and rims coming but they won't be here till next week at the earliest. I know people don't like them but they are just going to get chewed up on concrete anyway!

td-civ have you heard anything about your back order? I hope everything has gone well!

LOL! yes. I was going to put back the stock CVDs with the front one way just to check it out and see if it was still chatter free.
but, I figured it was still better withe the SSKs for the wider angle, so I kept the SSKs on it.

they still chatter at full lock its the universal joint in them knocking on the inside of the outer joint. yeah they work better.

Hey
I was just wanting to make sure I'm doing something right before I do it, is it the axle with D44 printed on it that you take apart , then flatten down the centre of the pin, them return the grub screw with thread lock , going to build my chassis , just want to do this first,

Yes, your front CVDs..the pins have a tendency to slip out from the grub screw that is supposed to keep it in place in the shaft roller which holds the axle in place...or you can get those axle pin holders from the Sakura XI and slide them in place over. That will keep the pins from sliding out.

Doing the Dremel mod to flatten the pin is free though.

You need an extensive supply of tyres for this chassis just like a real drifter lol

Not just the front CVD's do the pins on all the CVD's and replace your front CVD's with something with a wider angle that will help with the chatter

hey eunique I'll post some pics of my mounts with washers later.

buy a sensor setup its way smoother and is best of CS drifting

the last d3 i built for a guy he had a none sensor motor in it 5700kv and it was hand full to run even with me running it i put a sensor 8.5 motor in it and it was night and day more control and way smoother
Which one way did you pick up?

either oneway will fit ( SAK-59/V2 or SAK-D324/PK) they are the same tube the 59 has a spacer you leave out.

3Racing (#SAK-59/V2/PK) Front One Way Ver 2 For 3racing Sakura Zero

3Racing Aluminum One Way Tube For Sakura D3 #SAK-D324/PK

I have both as does td-civ and a few others cause we want all the option parts
