Re: Tire Mods?

Differently to Stalwart, I have a collection of low cost tires from R2Hobbies (Diamond Cut ones) which I prefer over any other tire for CS Drifting, but I also have very hard tires from Broadtech.hk and very soft tires from RCMart.com for RWD, but because of nationals rules we are only allowed to us...

What would you guys suggest for me to push the CS to 2.5? Like in what parts should I use and where can I get them from?

Re: Continue working on my Cyclone or just get a d3?

I agree with valentin, your Cyclone aint a turd dude.... Just expand your imagination and see what else you can do to better your chassis :up: Just as an idea, I recently got myself a TB Evo V and in the next few months I'm going to fit TB03 CS gearing and try and make a steering rack for it or do a...

Re: "The devil drift" r2chassis

I took 2nd place in our local comp yesterday with the DD, I'm still busy with the set up for my VDF and it wasn’t handling that great, so I decided to run the DD and it handled really well. The one comment that was always made was how quiet the car is and how stable it is.

Re: 3 Racing Sakura D3 CS

Just ordered this chassis along with a Zero tensioner and Tamiya 18 and 19t pinions. Now I know this sounds like a dumb question. Does the kit include pody pins and screws for mounting the motor? I'm just getting back into the hobby so don't have these common parts laying around anymnore. Another t...

Re: "The devil drift" r2chassis

ordered one... so will know in about two weeks time... I just like the idea that they used R31 steering, suspension and hubs... of all the cars I've had this year, I like those the most.
