YEs, it will fit..I just ordered a yokomo idler pulley To be used on the Zero S tension post instead of just the bearing for even better tensioning capabilities

Got my rear bulkhead and springs today the purples seem good no need for the tamiya spring clips anymore and the pinks are nicer than the whites too

I also spotted this overdose DRB tensioner pulley on ebay and this one

minimum purchase is 29.95 and shipping is 18.98 for me
I'll just wait till rcMart has it



Have you noticed that there are no instructions on how to put the carbon chassis and option parts together only for the plastic chassis?

Ok I've tested out the new springs and they make a huge difference I haven't even setup the chassis properly yet only by eye as I changed my KPI top arm mount back so I don't even know if it has the same camber on each side or if the toe is even, but it drives in a straight line, the switch backs are easier to perform and it holds the drift good. I'm running purple on the front and pink on the rear

Thanks for the pics...have you had a pratice run yet? How do they perform?

I had a last minute change to just use the upgrade parts and hopups to complete my fully upgraded D3 since ordering more parts would end up costing too much buying double. Ill just take off my existing parts to complete my new SSG chassis and build it as I get all the new parts.

No I turned them around and had about 25* postive caster (as the pic above shows) so I turned them back and just by eyeballing I'd say just over 5* but about -7-9* camber on full lock outer wheel and and -1-2* camber inner wheel -5* ish on straight

I'm going to set it up properly today before I take it to the kids school if I get the time after shopping

Nice, that chassis looks great with the options bolted to it. You can use 1.5mm M3 washers on the suspension arms instead of the plastic washers that come with the kit, they're tight at first but after working them for a while they loosen up. (You can just see them in the pics above of my chassis)
