I bought a Sakura D3 CS used and I'm very happy with it. This car drifts very nicely and the counter steer really works. This car is a real bargain.

Has anyone tried one of these on the D3? I keep seeing some cars that are modified with belt drive at the LHS, and they are so silent. It's awesome!

I have a quick question.

My Sakura has to much overdrive to begin with. I want a CS ratio of 1.5

What do I need to order from RCMart to create this? What kind of pully and belt?

playaround with the ratio calculator and change the 2 rear center pulleys until you get to the ratio you want. but then to get the correct size belt, there is a formula by measuring the disance and the diameter of both pulleys.

the CS ratio tool is here:

select the R31 CS ratio calculator

I just finished putting my d3 together and maybe im too used to shaft cars but it seems to me like the car has a lot of drag in the drivetrain. I have the front oneway and tensioner and ive triple checked that everything is built right but it just doesnt feel right

Maybe it needs a couple of packs through it to wear in?

That's from having three belts, just make sure the belts aren't super tight.

My D3 runs pretty silently as it is. I dunno if the extra $38 is worth spending on this.

I guess i enjoy messing with my gearing to much to be that limited on gear ratio.

Finally finished my Sakura D3 FWD racer!

It has an internal ratio of 2.0, modified steering linkage, sway bars, servo and battery position.

Alright I have read this entire thread numerous times. I finally bought D3 and purchased some upgrades in the process, alloy pulleys, alloy steering rack, one way diff, alloy solid spool, alloy spur gear adapter, hpi titanium drift springs, and 3 racing wide angle drive shafts.
But I have a question for everyone in this thread has anyone put this bad boy up against some a Mst`s or Yokomo`s, or even those tamiya Ta-0 whatever they are???

Second thing is I have been drifting since 2007, so when I read in this thread about cou tersteer, each and every drift forum says its gonna be hard to pick up if you come from 50/50, its suprisingly very easy on woodflooring or my local carpet track. So my question is does anyone in here drift both 50/50 and countersteer, and have no problems with either.

Im gonna track my vids down of the drift events we held at my local track. The car was an exceed lightning, modified beyond belief. P.S how do I post vids like I did the pictures in my above post

That looks pretty darn good. How does it perform for you?
