Hi everyone
I want to suggest an easy way to control your packages
if you're using Android phone there is a great app called Trackchecker
(I can't post links so look it up on Google market)
this app will let you know where your package is on every point of the way
in the last 2 month I made over 20 orders and it kept things simple for me
the app even alerts you before 45 days are over and it covers most if not all carriers in the world

For one, the light buckets dont fit properly without modification as the were moulded from the tamiya light buckets.
As for the wing, Addiction RC have made prototypes as to whic you see on the finished product photos but havent released them yet (i have one pre-release wing sitting here)

Cheers for the insight.

Well it seems one of my items wasnt in stock so the order was cancelled.

Just bought the Yoko HKS 86 with massif rear wing and the chrome light buckets.

The steering angle looks great! Which CVDs are you running in the front?

I put in an order at TQ and once I install everything from the order, I'll have an almost completely hopped up D3! Just need the alloy pullies and shafts. Still undecided about the titanium screws and alloy servo mounts though.

Cool...I ended up getting those TI screws also and used my Zero S alloy servo mounts.

They are MST axles so that they mate up correctly with the MST knuckles, but using the dogbones from R31 48.5 mm since the ones that MST comes with are about 44mm and those would be too short to reach.
Thank you pickled for figuring that out...otherwise, I would not have been able to install mine without all the needed parts.
You can see the pic of the parts a few posts above

Thank you very much for the info on the CVDs. I just put in an order on ebay for the 48.5mm R31 CVDs and the MST axles. I've been meaning to replace my CVDs ever since I did the KPI because the current ones don't fit right

You are welcome...but really, the credit goes to Pickled since he was the one who figured it out which parts were needed
