Thanks!

Is there limited space for the servo on this car? On the sakura zero the "normal" size is a tight fit. The LP model is way better.

Dorvack did a great job on the inboard mod. Not a hard conversion with it being basically a bolt on job.

I now want to buy a new car for CS drift. Should I go for the D3 or the Zero? What would be the big difference between a front engine and a center engine? I guess the D3 will have a rear end that is easyer to "come out", but would also understeer more?
well, for me It was a hard pick. I started off with the Zero S, put in front and rear spools and tweaking and setting up the chassis, better shocks and pretty happy with the set up. then I really got lured in with D3 CS and front motor. front motor is new to drifting and so far only 3 chassis available plus some front motor mods to existing chassis. I got it, ordering hopups as they get released and have been practicing with D3 and still far from done.

I have just recently been trying to CS my Zero and ordered some new parts and front one way for it and different gears. however, still have problems with too long of rear belt after smaller pulley gear...have been trying to mod belt tensioner and figure out smaller belt. I intend to get it to similar CS or at least closer to the D3 CS ratio.

under steer and overseer I've found out can mostly be tweaked with playing suspension setups and pickup points.

Totally awesome mod I just need a parts list now lol to do this mod too. I reckon this would solve some of the front suspension woe we experience as well?

Ive tried to download the manual / user guide/ instructions pdf from the 3Racing.hk and failed tens of times of times. anyone got their PDF file? just the manual. Ive got the setup sheet no prob.

give it a day or so and it will be? I didn't get that combo no cash too! did you get 1? I saw that hackmoto (the one with savox servo?) they got heaps of combo's leading up to Christmas, but be aware that after about the first or second week of December the mail system backs up and you won't get your orders till the new year?

I see...I'll have to get my order in soon...maybe I'll hold off on that reventon.
I like what you and Dorvak are doing with the mods on D3.

Plus, we will be moving out of our house...too much stuff happening this season

Thanks mine wasn't that difficult just cut the A-arms lol. I really like the inboard shocks that Dorvak has built on his. I'm definitely going to do the same It will give more adjustment too so will help with the bottoming out. I always end up ordering stuff after the second week of December and it never gets to me till near the end of December or after New Years so that's why I mentioned it. I'm going to put a big order in next week and then wait till new years till my next 1.
