Alright, For Sprint 2 sport. What lipo are you using to make it fit perfect? btw
If the car has been crashed already, check for something bent.  Especially the suspension hinge pins, axles, turnbuckles
Is it worth the money to make everything carbon fiber?
Word of advice, take it easy.. Right now since you are new and everything so cheap you want to buy it all, I understand how you feel I am new too and feel the same way. I have been into the RC drifting for about a month now and already $1000 in. Don't make my mistakes. If i can lend any advice is ... Use what you got now, learn it, get use to it and see where it takes you. You might not last 3 months in this hobby and saved a lot of money by not buying everything your eyes see
Amen to that Vroomin!  And people want to say the XXX-D is expensive!?  In the long run, it's one of the cheapest drift cars around!
