well, i have been placing orders with rcmart as the D3 CS aluminum parts have been trickling in .....now will have to wait.
i am now waiting for 3 orders to arrive at my doorstep so i can finally continue
and build my SSG chassis. I'm very excited and can't wait.

I will also be doing Pickled's KPI mod at the same time.

btw, Pickled you mentioned before that you ream the shaft holes of the lower suspension arms...what tool do you use? and how much do you do? and is it a big difference from stock?

thanks in advance

I cut the arms off at the cross brace then drilled a hole with a bit I happened to have it is just smaller than the 3mm set screw I drilled the hole in the centre of the cross brace but if I was to do it again I'd probably drill it 1mm or 2mm off centre toward the front for more caster! It is a massive difference from stock or atleast I feel it is as it's been a while now since I did it but I love how good drifting and switchbacks are now so yeah. I think I said I reamed the upper arm outer holes so a screw can pass through the shock tower without binding when screwed into the yokomo type C upper arm mounts (I used a small round file it was the perfect size just fatter than a 3mm screw). with the upper arm mounts when you cut the centre out, cut it all out right back to the outer arm links then just shim with washers on the back side of the shock tower, this also helps with more caster with out turning the mounts around for extreme caster.
