Just made some flat plugs for my lipo. Not sakura related but this way I can charge the battery in my bag!

Recommended you do this so you don't strain the wires if you charge in a bag.

this looks great..
I'm still waiting for some orders to start the build
I think I'm about 95% hoped up
are the Alloy knuckles and C hubs worth the price? thinking of ordering those too..(SAK-D304/PK + SAK-D309/PK)

I got the rear uprights just for the bling factor! lol. I expect the knuckles an C-hubs are just the same except that the threads would be harder to strip than the plastic. I don't need the C-hubs or the front knuckles.

Went for a practice session at the LHS drift track yesterday...dropped down my FDR to 6.46 with 100t spur and 28t 64 pitch gears. Found more improvements since some of the big sweeping elevation turns allows me to go faster as I drift up the elevation and avoid hitting the inner rails.

...now starting to have even more fun with my D3 during practice sessions
:-)

Yeah I still haven't caught up with my mate to get my 13.5 motor back.

Have to use a 17.5T for now, might order a cheap HK one later.
