It actually runs pretty good, a bit understeer but i think that can be solved with some better tires, softer damper oil and some extra weight at the front of the chassis.

Here is mine for now. Ordered new Tamiya shock towers, turnbuckles and battery mount. It has all proline tires and TRF spoiler. I am running a speed passion reventon sensored 17.5T system.

Looks great, i'm also thinking about mounting a TRF spoiler.
The standard one looks to fragile.

Tonight i've been busy to lower the DT-03, so far the front has been done.
Therefor i used touring onroad springs and inserted some more spacers in the damper.
The cars ride height at the front is about 8mm.
Tomorrow i will do the rear, therefor i'm going to use the DF03 front springs and i'm also going to insert some more spacers in the damper to get the rear ride height at about 10mm.

Why are you lowering it? I also ordered hinge pins to get rid of the srew system.

When the car sits to high it could roll over much easier when it has to much front grip, also the car drives more balanced.
I'm trying to setup the car for my little girl so it's easier for her to drive and still get the best performance out of this chassis.

With the limited gearing, how is that 17.5 running compared to cars that have fully adjustable gearing?

I have been running one with a 13.5 and its fine, I use the smaller pinion though (17t)

We do 5 min races and the motor is ok.

Building one at the moment.
Does anybody know if the 3 Racing DT02 universal shafts fit the DT03 with the standard geared diffs? I saw it done but with ball diffs and different cups. Havent seen any proper DT03 universals yet.
Also how are the geared diffs going with brushless power are they still controllable?

I think they should fit as the whole rear end of the DT-03 is the same as the DT-02

I placed my order for one tonight. Going to start with a box stock build with bearings and upgrade slowly. I'm pretty sure the motor will be the first upgrade, but am unsure if I'll go with a Super Stock BZ or go the brushless route and get a Trackstar 17.5 or 13.5.
