RE-Xtreme MARK X 275 WIP - 90%

Looking pretty finished.

Image

But there are lots of things to do. interior Cage etc

Image

The goodyear stickers are just temporary until my set is printed. Then it will be covered with lots of small detail.

But it's looking pretty good.

Just need 2mm on the wheel spacers.

Really clean work as usual Rex. Shes one bad-azz Mark-X. I hope to see a blacked-out VIP example of this body in the near future
How do you like the extended DIB chassis length compared to the shorter length wheel base setup?
Can we assume a big difference in performance? Any pros & cons, besides having to buy the 275mm length yokomo bodies? I'm eyeballing one of these kits and am searching for feedback from those who already have the long wheelbase dib. Thanks in advance.

I have a Chaser reserved for the end of March.
Yokomo bodies are worth the money. I'm sick of those other cheap brands where you can't even see in through the windows.

DIB 275 is basically the same as the DIB. I was running with a friend last week and fell is similar.
no real difference in performance.
I mean 16mm doesn't really change anything.

Going from my other super stiff DRB and Carbon Drift Package, the flex in the DIB chassis (about 5mm corner to corner) means suspension setting are very vague. (good for beginners)

My DRb and Drift package are totally adjustable by 1/4 turn adjustments on damper / spring settings.
The DIB 275 takes a good 2-3 turns to notice any effect on changes. other guys with DIB say this is similar.

Its a fun forgiving chassis though.

Street Jam are also selling the M 275 and L 290 parts now, so you have options to get into long wheelbase.

Very nice as usual, but I think some body line tape for the doors would make it look more real, if you know what I mean ;)
....oh and some ultra deep dish rims would look awesome!!
