I order another GT86 Body and then D-Like goes and announces this... an S-15 body.

I'm picking up a D3 as soon as TQ racing gets more back in. I want to run the Wrap Up Next AE86 body 195mm front width and 198mm rear width, and wasn't sure what offset wheels to get. I was think 5 upfront and 7 in the back, that sound about right? I know there was a post pages back on how to figure out the offset but can't find it now lol.

How about Yokomo oil? They do not have any 35wt or 40wt written on packaging, only example like #450

Today I'm assembling near final step but I realize the front suspension is very soft and bottom of the car is touching the floor, how could this be



Yeah racing gear support plate aluminium, is this much better than the one comes with D3 kit in pink aluminium?



Thanks again

I use #400 in the front with purple springs and #1300 in the rear with pink springs. the stock front springs are too soft wind down the collars till it sits off the deck, buy some purple/blue springs from 3Racing that will solve the problem

No real difference with using that gear support plate. That's what I'm using on my fully optioned D3...I couldn't wait back then for the 3racing to come out. Unless you are counting micro ounces...I don't know if either one Is lighter

hi guys.
I just shredded another belt last nite.
I have tried all the things that pickled and all the other guys suggested.
Im running a Speed passion 13.5 sensored + Reventon pro set up,Brake set at 30%,drag brake off,ddsr level 1 or watever that power level thing is called and its still going thru belts.

We apprently have 4 D3's at the place where I play and all of us are having the same problems,this is my 7th belts in 3 months now and none of us knows wat to do.

The car is running really well,nice and smooth,I really dont want to give up the D3 for just a front belt but Im running out of ideas of what to do.. =(

Got the first part of my D3 build in today!



I want to tear into the kit and start building so badly, but I've got to wait on a few more hop-ups from TQ Racing, and my Reventon Pro from Speed Passion. The wait is torture!
