MST XXX-D VIP HT
#1
I just finished my latest drift car which is the XXX-D VIP HT and i couldn't be happier with it. My ms vip was a great car but it feels like a cheap car when i compare it to the xxx but thats just my opinion.

So far all i've done to it is upgrade the lower arms front and rear to the alloy parts and the front and rear knuckles as well to the alloy parts and thats about it. For the electrics on this car i thought i would try something different to the optimus drift truck and went with the hobbywing v3.1 esc and hobbywing v10 10.5t motor and a savox 1251mg servo. I also fitted the cs 2.02 gears replacing the stock 1.32 ratio.

When i fitted the arms and knuckles i tried to set it up as close to the stock setup as possible and it seems to run just fine as is but over the next couple weeks ill play around with the setup to see if it gets any better but right now im loving it as is.

Im really amazed at the throttle response of the shaft chassis compared to my ms its just so amazing smooth but i guess for a $1k chassis you would expect it to be. Probably the only other thing i plan to do to it apart from playing with the setup is replace the stock bearings with ceramic ones to make it even smoother.
I'd like to thank Scott Spaven at Millennium Raceway for the chassis and upgrades along with the new sanwa m12 radio which im using this car and the drift truck as well.

Here are a couple of quick pictures i just took of the finished product.

I love mine. Can't believe how much of a difference the HT conversion made.
Don't be a douche and help the next guy.

Good to hear chiefly. Everyone I let drive mine loved it as well and thought it was the best chassis they have tried out and that's coming from guys running ms vip2 and fs chassis drivers. A couple said they will buy one for themselves but would need to save up a couple weeks to get it since it's pretty expensive specially once you add the alloy arms and knuckles it becomes a $1100 chassis before even thinking of the electrics.

I wanted to bring this back before starting a new thread. Can you give me some feedback specifically on your motor an esc setup. Im thinking about upgrading my R31 Rwd to the exact same combo as you. What do you like/dislike? Issues so far? Do you think 10.5 will be overkill for rwd?

Any feedback is much appreciated!

Not to threadjack, but I'll be selling my XXX-D VIP soon if any of your friends were looking for a slightly used chassis. Check my thread in this forum or PM me for specifics!

Loved the HT upgrade, I would have loved to try it out myself. Great looking chassis overall.
