Now I have no RC back ground and only going off what has been posted in these threads. Do not plan on doing a lot of hop-ups for this chassis since many of the hop-ups are already being discontinued. This is simply a cheap chassis to familiarize myself with RC drift and see if it is something I would like to take serious.
WIP Sakura D3
Sakura D3 received on the July 10th put it together on the 12th.
This was the first time putting a chassis together, rather proud of the outcome... except for when it was all done I had put the spur gear on the wrong side. It took me forever to pop the spring pins back out of the pulleys to reposition that dang thing. Lesson learned. Anyway, I got the FOW yesterday on the 14th and will be installing it tonight.

Sakura D3 stocks - Terrible for any hard wood or polished concrete. Not that bad on carpet but do not have much to compare it to at this time.
Raikou D70 - Really enjoy running these on concrete, not so much on carpet.
Yeah Racing Spec D - Have yet to test them out.
*Take note that I am new and any suggestions on a better receiver, transmitter or other is expected.
