Has any one seen this combo and what do you think of it?
Speed Passion Reventon Pro Brushless ESC with FREE Competition Motor V3 (5.5R) - #Champion Combo Setl It's cheaper than the esc alone.
would probably be better teamed up with this motor
Speed Passion (#13895V3) Competition Motor Ver.3 (9.5R)

I'm sure It's a good combo..a little much power for drifting. I started off with 4.5T Xerun combo on my D3 and got a 8.5T....way smoother. I'm even thinking of getting 10.5 and 13.5T. But I'm pretty happy with the 8.5T.

For Td-CIV, I just got email confirmation that my order from 3Racing has shipped. Sad though that I jumped the gun and hours later that Rcmart released same products for cheaper.

Next time I'll try to contain my excitement and wait until Rcmart gets the rest of hopups I want.

lol I would only want it for the ESC but it's cheaper to buy it in the combo than by itself! The motor underneath is a 9.5T which would suit drifting a bit better. But that ESC has wifi so you can set it up from a smart phone or your pc with out plugging it in!

that's a definite win then. buy buy buy!
those are the new generation of ESCs and where things are going...easier tobtweak and make adjustments

I ordered the D3 kit and front one way the other day. I can't wait to get the kit and start building.

What things on the chassis need attention? Also, what are some upgrades I should do first?

you got the one way already. they just released some aluminum bling parts for it. I got the sakura XI CVDs for it. it got rid of the chatter at full lock steering. you will need someth ing like that or eagle racing wide angle CVD. 3racing wide CV has not been released yet. I got the XI and it was bolt on and got rid of my chatter.

other than that, you should be ok and start having fun practicing.

use light oil and prethread plastic parts first prior to actually just trying to screw the hexes in...it will save you from a lot of stripped threads/ hex screws.
I learned the hard way when I first built my Zero S.

Don't forget Tamiya TRF Double Cardins look better lol.
Dumb question but what do you actually use to prethread the holes the screws? or a threading tool?

tamiya 42216 44mm double cardan

The Alloy shocks by 3racing for the XI fit. SAK-X28/PK
although any 55mm shock should be ok just use the ball end from the D3

Yeah i thought you ment those Why do they look cooler? I thought there was some logo or other fancy paint scheme on them, since you said they looked better Ain't questioning the quality though

Cool on the 55mm, might want to upgrade to Tamiyas at some point, when i learn how to tame this beast of drifter

I was just joking cause eunique didn't mention them, but I think they look better than the ssk and perform the same function

I'll take a pic tomorrow and post it.
Sometimes I just use a regular hex screw and put a drop of oil or lubricant on the threads so they don't heat up. Works good. I got fed up with rounded hex screws

I'm sure tHose Tamiya double cardins are great..but I'm ok with almost hAlf price with the SSKs or wait for the new CVDs for the D3.

Was going to place an order for the eagle racing ones long with some other items..but going through check out with Broadtech and shipping was over $65 for and order of $156....I didn't go through with it since that was too much for shipping!

That is pretty steep for shipping wouldn't pay more than $30. lol they aren't bad but they're still an option!

Hey td-civ have you got an update on your order status yet?
