You can also use set screws since they don't have"heads", there's nothing to block the steering arms.

finally had some free time to work on doing the KPI mod to my chassis. Got a little too anxious and now I realize the importance of having the upper arms...I'll be picking them up tomorrow though. Can't wait to finally finish the mod and visit the LHS!



*edit* wooo! I can finally post links!

Looks like you have to much negative caster? You need to have positive caster or it doesn't work right! I used the Yokomo Type C upper arms with the centre cut out and shimmed at the rear

Nice to see you have it almost complete mrjfang...
Pickled is correct, I did more reading on caster and suspension set up and you definitely want positive career, not negative

thanks guys! haha dont worry. I haven't installed the front arms yet so the front knuckles are just flopping around and that's why it looks like there's too much negative caster. I'm driving back to the bay from school today and my yokomo upper arms will be waiting at home

I'm in the final stages of assembling my D3 and ran into an odd problem. I'm trying to thread the ball ends onto the link that connects the steering servo to the steering bellcrank. The issue is that I can't get the threads to start on the left hand threaded side. I've tried numerous ball ends, but none seem to work. The threads look fine on the link, too. I would tap the ball end, but I don't have a left handed 3mm tap. Is this a common issue or am I special?

I also tried the Yeah Racing ball ends. By the way, I didn't realize they would be too short to work with the stock links so most of them went un-used.

did you try turning it the opposite direction to tighten? It is a turnbuckle so the ends are threaded in opposite directions to allow for both ends to be simultaneously tightened or loosed with a turn of the bar itself.

Turns out I was burning up servos because my EPA needed to by adjusted from 100 down to 70.....


Woops.

Now which Pandora RC Body do I want..

The Sileighty (S13)


The ke70 Corolla


The Silvia S13


Or the S13 Onevia


They all look so good I cant choose....

Ill most likely get 2 different bodies anyway. Hell when they are this cheap!

I'd go the 1Via for sure and maybe the sil80 but they have a few new shells as well now
e.g. R33


or R34



I also like this better than a corolla


I own this one already

Thanks! Yeah, it's the left hand threaded side that simply won't thread. I can figure out an alternative linkage, but was just curious if this is common. I also didn't have enough rear shock oil in the bottle to fill them and didn't quite have enough for the front, either. So put this together with the known belt tension issues and I'm a bit skeptical of their quality control. Not that I'm really complaining, though. For $125 I wasn't expecting perfection.

But if this linkage issue isn't common I guess I'll have to figure out a different solution...

for sh!ts and giggles try screwing it on like your undoing it? just for mine and everyone else's peace of mind.
you should have had plenty of oil for the shocks there are 2 bottles the #300 goes in the front and the #1200 in the rear, did you spill some?
