I think D box means, "drift"...I know RC is so different from our real cars. Considering you drive a brand new Saleen S7 (nice car by the way - especially the modifications you did already), drifting is probably not what you do daily with your S7.

Drift box, its a $130 electronic box that automatically countersteers for you while you are trying to learn how to drift RC cars, it has an adjustable gain control so you can adjust how much help it is giving you.

The D-Box is similar to a gyro for rc helicopters??? That seems pretty neat.

Sounds like a regular old Gyro to me as GRASSY had mentioned. I have no doubt that it was made by Futaba either. Good call Grassy! Regardless, might be fun to try out, see how fast you can really take that sweeper!
