A few more parts came in, and I'm finally done school, so I decided to work on the car a little bit.
I received my Overdose front Type-C suspension holder, as well as suspension arm pins(included).
Overdose Front Shock Tower
Overdose Rear Shock Tower
Here it is all together with the rest of the front end I mocked up earlier. Looks nice :D
The suspension pin screws into the front of the shock tower with the new mount, I like this design a lot.
Here is a good shot of the front shock tower, lots of adjustability options for the dampers.
I then got to work on mocking the rear up. The rear of the Drift Package is cool, remove 7 screws from the bottom of the chassis, 2 from the top, and it comes out as one piece.
Rear end mocked up ready to go on the chassis.
Closer look at a few of the Overdose bits
And the rear shock tower. Again, tons of adjustability options. I won't be using a Type-C setup for the rear of the car..
And here is how it'll sit for a little while, while I wait for more parts.
Very happy with the build so far, especially the quality and design of the front Type-C mounts. Slowly but surely it's coming together.
Here's a reference pic from the initial build up of the stock chassis for reference

It looks like they are designed to work well with 10 and 12 deg castor block or Type C ball.
I got the Kazama ones, basically the same, but with some flexibility.
Famous guy takeshi "TaKe-C" was using one of these JECT convers in Japan for 2WD.
It looks the same but the front end has reverted to the 4wd version from a type C setup.
I have a pic in my RC World magazine.
conversion chassis $180
Overdose gearboxes $160
team Suzuki arms. $80
there's $450 right there.
Someone thought it was good value... sold.
Will you be trying those knuckles out on your planned RWD project? They have a nice design for sure. Also, are you planning to eventually go for a JECT conversion with your RWD project?
I really want to run that RC926 chassis you posted earlier with this car now. I decided not to go with the aluminum chassis from Team Suzuki. It would also mean my current Type-C suspension arm supports wouldn't work with the chassis though.
