Too much oil lol, are you using the FOW? do you have SSK's or are you still using the solid axle with the standard CVD's?

Yeah you'll hate those spark tyres lol I did but still used them when I had tosted all my other tyres. I reckon an offset of 8mm would fill those rear guards?

I have 4mm hex now, not the 5mm plastic part. I have also ordered 5 and 7 mm hex. So 6-9mm offset would be good I think. The front wheels is rather good match.

the standard plastic steering sweeper is only capable of 45* so with out modifying it or buying the alloy steering sweeper you won't get 55* anyway. I modded the standard plastic sweeper cross bar adding 4mm so I get a bit more steering

I use 5mm alloy hexs +1mm spacer on the rear and 5.5mm alloy hexs on the front but I'm only running 3mm offsets all round. Check out the SPICE VOLK Racing TE37 8mm offsets you can continue to run you 5mm hexs

What have you guys done with the antenna? In the manual it looks like it is on the servo side on one drawing and on the other it is on the ESC side. It is also a setscrew in the bottom. How does this ad up?

And the servo, is it a tight fit? Mine have less then 1mm from the servosaver to the body.

when I built mine the servo saver touched the chassis so I just changed to a servo horn the antenna is supposed to go through the piping then get locked into position with the set screw. the antenna goes on the servo side, but on my carbon chasssis I just passed it through the holes on the top deck

Hi guys,Im just wondering if there are any solutions to the front drive belt getting teeth chewed out every second day ?
I have been looking at this post since the car first came out and I have owned a D3 for about 2 months now,since then I have gone thru 4 front belts already.
With the one way in it,its much better it lasts much longer,or could it be just I dont know how to drive properly ?
Any help or info would be much appreciated.
Thanks

Ok do you have the little silver screws in the bearing holders at the bottom of the bulkhead adjustment? If you turn the bearing holder back towards the top as it turns toward the top it tensions the front belt if this doesn't help try turning towards the bottom as you may have the bearing holders in the wrong sides? I noticed this when building my carbon chassis as on the plastic one I could have it at the bottom with good tension. I have good tension now at the second from top on my carbon chassis! I haven't destroyed a single front belt only a centre belt

I have only ruined one front belt which also chewed up the plastic pulley. Replaced the front belt and put in aluminim pulley and has been problem free since.
My center belt is starting to go a little bit...ill replace it when I build my carbon chassis.

where did you get the alloy pulley? is it a 38T? all I can find are Square and D-like, if I use a Square 41T and a 32T the CS ratio only goes up to 2.17
