Could anyone tell me what chassis this is?
#1
Hello, this is my first post but ive been 50/50 drifting before, i want to order a nice and cheap chassis kit for cs drifting and i saw the one pictured, to me it looks like a sakura d3 clone and i'd hope that is true so i can use their parts and hop ups too.

The thing i really like is that its only 94 dollars and has a lot of aluminum parts on it, also the sakura is mostly pink but i like the blue better.

Nope it isn't.
This is from a company called TopToys in China. It's called the Devil Drift.
It does not share much with the D3.
Also, not sure if you have checked out your local scene but RWD is becoming the norm these days.
You may want to look at Sakura D4 CS instead because it's super easy to switch to RWD when the time comes.

Hey thanks for the tips, ill just skip that one then, i just saw a d4 rwd clone from aliexpress in full carbon/aluminum and think ill be going with that, its only 10 bucks more and another 10 for the gyro, may as well just go rwd from the (re)start.

I was thinking if this would be a nice set and if im missing anything. 

Car kit

Gyro

Spur and pinion what tooth? 

Servo  

Esc 120A

Motor

radio set

Along with an imax b6 charger and 2 lipos (1x2s and 1x3s)

Does it need any other upgrades or parts?

I think this should be a nice kit to start with, or is the motor too weak/powerful? Its been a while since i cared about this stuff lol

Thanks for the help anyways i appreciate it

Gyro Gyro is unknown to me. I'd go with something that has a proven track record. Onisiki, yeah racing, boom racing, etc. 

Spur and pinion what tooth? Go with what 3Racing advises on their manual of the D4

Servo  go with something with at least 100oz of torque and sub 0.1sec in speed if possible. Power HD, Feetech, Yeah Racing, etc.

Esc 120AI wouldn't touch that either. 120A at that price won't last. Go with a SkyRc Toro TS120 and you'll be far better. Plus the ESC has accessories to keep it entertaining in the long run. 

Motor. this is unsensored so it's not going to be smooth. good alternative is Onisiki motor or even yeah racing mobster. Cheap and good quality.

radio set That's decent 

Along with an imax b6 charger and 2 lipos (1x2s and 1x3s)

Does it need any other upgrades or parts? Yes, get genuine belts from 3Racing, good dampers (Tamiya TRF, or MST), then adjustable rear toe block is a must. 
then if you want you can get the slide rack from 3Racing and knuckles from Yeah racing. You can get almost 90 degree turning radius.
