Thanks guys, got a lil distracted as I have had Yokomo buggies and know the quality.

But seems like I got a fairly decent set of upgrades for the D3 and cant wait to start the build.

Unfortunately I need to wait for half a dozen packages first

haha, yea i love wheels/tires, i just can't settle with one set, i think i got like 30+ different wheel/tire setups

on a side note, has anyone got a fix for the front belt being worn out so fast, it only seems to last 2~3hrs of use and then it doesn't grip as well and clicks like crazy when on full throttle

Question!!!
I got the Sakura D3 Pre-assembled car, with one way, belt tensioner and aluminum motor mount. Running a Hobbywing Xerun combo 13.5. The rest of the body is stock. I am getting a lot of wheel chatter when turning left or right and full throttle. I have retightened all of the screw in the front part of the car. Any Ideas what it could be????

Just measured my car Spot.

I have 22ft x 10ft to play with... to make a semi permanent setup or I have like 60x80 ft to make a ad hoc trac with cones etc.


Allright so I was bored... and found a program called Trackmaker, it was originally designed for Mini Z cars but it works well enough to give basic outlines.

Now all of these tracks are 11x5 squares, IE: 2 feet/61cm per Square just under 2x the length of your average 1/10th scale car.

Now beginner tracks:

Figure 8


Big Corners


Technical tracks:

The Flyover & my Currnet Favourite






So whatcha think.

From what I have read and what people have told me

3Racing SSK Driveshaft For Sakura XI/Sakura FF/Sakura Zero #SAK-X27

and

3Racing Aluminum Steering System For Sakura D3 #SAK-D310/PK

Should get rid of most or all of your chattering.

Awesome hope it gets there soon!

Think I'm going to take your first track and draw it out in chalk in my garage, and start practicing/breaking LOL

Make the first track more rounded, its all I could do with the program I had.

Should be good practicing, use cones at each end as the points to drift around and then try and stay within your chalk drawings.

Thats my plan anyway.

The chatter is due to The limitations of the stock CVDs...the least expensive way is to use Sakura XI SSKs which will give you the wider angles if used together with the aluminum steering.
But, even without the aluminum steering, it will get rid of the chatter.

CS is hard....and I initially thought the same and keep practicing on my 50/50 Zero S.
But the more you practice CS, the more rewarding it becomes...and it gets easier after a while. And now I am getting more comfortable with it....and loving CS more, to the point I don't use my 50/50 anymore and am now converting it to CS (on my Zero S, 1.79 CS).
So,now I am fully committed to CS drifting. No more 50/50 drifting....both of my drift cars are now CS.
Just keep practicing

I just chuck something round on the ground and drift around it then I throw something else on the ground and try doing figure 8's keeping close to the objects then I may put something else down in an "L" pattern do 8's and long drifts or circles and practice both directions

I think you need to check how tight the front belt is? to tight can cause it and too loose can also do it remove the little silver screws in the bulk head and turn the bearing cover till the front belt deflect about 3-5mm when you push lightly on it then replace the screws. I'm not sure which direction to turn it as it depends on which way you installed the bearing covers
