wow..that's great to know. Thanks!
Now, I'll have to put together another order.
Hehe!
I just placed an order from Banzai last night.

I am Running 35wt front and rear with slow rebound mod on rear shocks.
I might return to normal rebound and try that out at the track with my settings and see if it's any better now

Cool thanks

What have you done to the rear, to create the slow rebound? It feels pretty slow with the stock oil, and 2 hole piston already

I would suggest 3hole piston with light oil plus the mod here...

Its supposed to rebound slowly so chassis doesnt get upset on cornering

Ill look them up in the morning and report back.
I believe they are because I believe the arm pins are the same.

I want to use them on the SSG chassis as they don't have that little wing that sticks out and they are about $2 cheaper per set

We want to see a photo montage of the assembly!

I got these linkages and they appear to be better quality than the ones in the kit?


These are all the hop ups I have so far apart from the SSG top deck

Ok Pickled...here's my full report

D3 Rears are slightly shorter than Zero by 2mm. Widths are the same. You can Probably still use them..will change settings slightly, maybe hopefully for the better to tame the rear end?
What do you think?
Fronts are same width and length....outer and inner pins are the same for both cars..also optional titanium coated.

I have extra arms front and rear for both cars since I have broken some on my Zero a while back practicing in parking lot...high speed sliding crash into a steel post! LOL!

slightly...rears are dog bones for Zero S.. 46mm in length and the

D3 CS are 44mm CVDs..but with just the 2mm difference in length..I think it will still be fine...although there are still plenty of CVDs that can be used that are 46mm in length.
The Zero S uses a small 4mm part (foam) cut out from the bumper that is put into the drive cups..to keep the CVDs away from the center to push it towards the hubs...and the rears don't turn, so no real danger of falling out there.
