sweet I got a set coming in a couple of days or so 16 bucks with rims awsome.

I've knocked my R34 shell around abit so I'm getting the repair products i.e. Aluminum reinforced tape, fibre tape and repair Adhesive. I have splits in the body etc. I'm thinking of getting a new body, the Yokomo Dmax One Via shell and the Uras One Via wider fender complete set. For when I build the carbon version of this chassis.

Hex All.
I've ordered SAK-D324/PK for chassis, does this part just slot right in, or does it need anything done to it, thanks in advance for any help

It is made for this chassis all you have to do is assemble it. If you've already assembled the chassis then you need to strip the front bulkhead and remove the spool just keep it to one side if you want to build another out of the option parts, Add the bearings to the oneway and reassemble the bulkhead. Careful not to stretch the front belt.

That's great news pickled, I just seen a few pages ago that there was another one that fitted I was originally going to fit the SAK-59/v2, but they are all sold out

Yeah they are both the same tube, the 59 has a spacer that isn't required with this chassis the 324 has a spacer as well but it goes on the outside of the pulley to stiffen it! I'll have both as soon as my order arrives next week. I want to get all the option parts for this chassis so when the carbon is released I can build a complete hopped up D3! That's why I said to put the spool to one side as all you'll need is the 30T alloy pulley to add the rear spool to the other car if you decide to build the full optioned chassis and keep your original one as well, you'll need to get a set of screws, turnbuckles and pivot balls etc, bearing housings, bearings, alloy pulleys, shocks, posts(chassis,steering and body) and the front bumper assembly as well as all the option parts for a complete chassis.

Wow, that's a lot of bits, I'm not to sure if I'll be going for full customization, I've got two other RC cars that I race alternate weeks, (Mardave V12 VRX CE and a MX707R tourer) my club does not have a drift night, so the drift car is more for myself .it's the real reason for getting into this hobby, so I'm looking into starting my own drift club , not being easy though, it's not a big scene over in the UK, especially in Scotland, bit it's something that's really interesting myself

I've got most of those bits already...even full set yeah racing Teflon bearings so when all options And CF chassis gets released. I didn't really t hunk about it that way to just build a second car...but I won't need a 2nd one. So I'll just strip most of what I have and put it together.

That's why I have been adding my option parts as I get them. I did leave out the motor plate with built in heat sink out until I do the complete rebuild hen everything becomes available.

yup, great deal on the set. I initially didn't like them when I used them on drift carpet track brand new...too slippery I was. But then a little bit of sliding on concrete roughed them up enough and my last day at LHS drift track, those were all I used and didn't even mount my T-drifts...I'm liking those now.

I got a cheap prepainted Nissan S15 off eBay shipped from HK...didn't like all the graphics so I tried the brake fluid thing with paper towels to try to strip the color and reprint the body...it did not work. Guess its not regular paint. So, I'm thinking about painting it from the outside and multiple coats of clear. What do you think?

My Toyota AE86 body is pretty trashed...use it both on D3 and my Sakura Zero S.

I think you should just buy a body for the D3 and paint it yourself it's a bit fiddley masking up, you paint the light colours first. but if you decide to paint that body then your still going to need to mask it up but you paint the dark colours first on the outside, the only problem is as soon as you hit something it will chip the paint. You could get a yokomo AE86 if you want then get the wider fenders and bonnet. they have mods like that on japan race and drift or pandora do a good version S15 SILeighty but it's out of stock on rcMart, they have it on genkidoridori.com
