  RWD conversion questions
Posted by: AmirF35 - 11-15-2016, 03:09 AM - Forum: Rear Wheel Drive (RWD) - Replies (1)

I haven't been into RC stuff for years, and haven't logged in here for years too.welp.
I found my Sakura Zero S collecting dust for years while cleaning up my room. Thought I'd do something about it.
Planning to convert it into RWD. I know the chassis is quite unfavourable.
I don't have the brightest idea in my mind, was thinking of doing C-Hub delete mod, buying an R-31 steering rack, drill some holes and slap it in. Remove the top CFRP plate, mount the servo at the back and a battery holder mounted sideways. Or in other words, conversion based on TRF415MS-H.
Would it be worth the try or is it worth it to just buy a brand new RWD kit? Or at least, correct the parts I'm planning to use.

  Overdose Vacula II RWD RC Drift Chassis
Posted by: wilkewhaq - 11-14-2016, 09:15 AM - Forum: News and Announcements - Replies (9)

The new Overdose Vacula II is a rear midship mounted chassis, very similar to the Tamiya TA-06. The first version of the Overdose Vacula was a Countersteer RC Drift Chassis, the Vacula II comes with RWD in mind. This car has been uniquely designed by Weld Overdose for better suspension characteristics.This is a high-end Overdose chassis and made specifically for RWD RC drifting. This is a cultivation of everything Overdose has learned from their previously designed chassis and option parts. The front unit adopts a bulkhead designed exclusively for RWD RC Drifting. Weld Overdose adopted an upper arm mount with a right and left integral structure, the mounting rigidity of the upper arm is greatly improved. It firmly supports the front tire of RWD of complex movement.The steering unit adopts a slide rack used in the Overdose XEX spec R, the Vacula II also comes with the same suspension arm & knuckle, it can cope with the large steering angle. It is set to the optimum cutting angle and Ackermann ratio for RWD. Newly announced from Weld Overdose comes the Overdose Vacula RC Drift chassis! This new chassis from Overdose will be available in Purple and Red. Check your bank account, as it will have a MSRP around $750 USD.

  Pandora RC Under Body Set
Posted by: wilkewhaq - 11-12-2016, 11:16 AM - Forum: News and Announcements - No Replies

Pandora RC products has just announced a new under body panel set (carbon fiber style) to their growing line-up. The kit includes Front and Rear spoilers, along with side skirts (2 door), canards, a rear wing, and more! The kit appears to be somewhat universal as it is shown below on Pandora RC bodies with different widths, however there will be some limitations based on the width of each body. No specific details were available at the time of this posting but would imagine it works between 195mm-198mm.This is expected to be on sale in the coming days and should retail for around $40 USD. No word if they plan to release a clear version for those who want to paint their own color.

  Subaru Brz Rocket Bunny kit
Posted by: Woodsnail - 11-11-2016, 02:41 PM - Forum: Work-in-Progress - Replies (4)

I saw earlier this year that Killerbody had a Rocket bunny kit version, so i thought, when i got my new MST XXX-D VIP it should have a new body..

The quality of Killerbody is amazing, the body kit is even more detailed and screams quality - but a lot of trimning since the parts are drilled out.

I've still not gotten to paint the thing, building it, figuring out where the skirts should sit and make holes for the mini screws took me over 8 hours.

Here is the first piece on - quite nice there is small screws with the kit to screw them on with bolts on the other side.

The body is standard 195mm wide - with the body kit, it becomes a 205mm wide beast - also i think Killerbody nailed it with the replica.

And that's it for now - i've just dismantled it and took it for a wash and a scrath-up so now it is ready for paint. I've gotta work a night shift so i'll continue saturday at some point :)

Just to give you guys a comparison to how small these screws are - that's a M3 screw to the left and the mini screw to the right ;)

  having trouble with control
Posted by: groundworks - 11-11-2016, 01:49 PM - Forum: Help Section - No Replies

i have a Tamiya ta06 and I changed the gearing using a 1way 39t front the center is 13/20 and the back is a 16 the pinion and spur is stock. my problem is that I have a really hard time controlling the rear wheels they want to spin out almost every time and I spent time into practicing with it. I do have the axle locked in the back. if theres any ideas or guide me in the right direction I thought about changing the rear back to its normal gear which I think its 18 idk cause I don't have it in front of me at the moment that it might slow the rear down some where I can control it more but I'm not sure with my lack of knowledge in it.

  Team MagicE4D RWD Conversion
Posted by: littlemonsta - 11-10-2016, 10:50 AM - Forum: Help Section - Replies (13)

Hi All,

[edited and corrections]

I am new to RC and and new to drifting. I got this E4D Brushless 6.5T and I am in the midst of converting it to RWD. I just need a little help with converting it to a reasonable rwd. 

Running Surface: Polished Tiles 
Tires : Rubber Hard Compound 
Everything is standard E4d, i only removed the belt from the front to the back. 

Mods : 
e4d MF knuckles
Shaved Chassis (for more turn angle)
Rear Battery Position (approximately 350grams)
Front Weight (125grams)

Front Toe : out slightly 
Front camber : 2 deg
Rear Camber : 7.7 Deg [this is wrong. 0-2degs only needed]

Diffs are still in.

1) I have a problem that the car doesn't turn sometimes. Wheels are at full lock but the car seems to go in a straight line when it is going fast. Is this normal ? I have no problems if throttle is really low / or surfaces with more traction. 
[ Yes this is normal]

2) I am looking for  Y lower suspension arm joints to fit. Anyone has any ideas of which would fit ?  Can i use the Sakura D4 lower arms ? or anyone has the dims for it ? e4d lower arm is about 29mm length and 5mm thick.
[Sakura D4 lower arms fits]


3) Is a gyro recommended for RWD cars ? Will this resolve most of the fish tailing ? or will it still happen if over throttle ?
[Gyro is needed]

4) Do i need to remove the front diff ? so there is smoother front wheel movement ? 
[ Front diff gone for more angle]
5) Any suggestions to improve on handling ? Softer rubber tires ?
[ Gyro, controller, harder tires, proper weight placement]

  Looking for Sakura D4 awd setup tips
Posted by: Boost Junkie - 11-08-2016, 03:50 AM - Forum: Countersteer Setups - Replies (4)

Hi guys I've been on this forum for a while but this is my first post. I've recently bought a new Sakura D4 awd and built it exactly to the specs in the manual. Driving it on my smooth concrete driveway it just wants to spin really easily. I wound the front springs down two millimetres and stood the rear shocks up to see if it'd make a difference. It's basically still the same. Slow tight corners are kind of ok but on long sweepers it just wants to do 360s. Im just running the standard tyres and have a Speed Passions Dokyo Drift  V3 motor and esc combo, any tips or ideas?

Hey everyone,

My name is Keith Carlson, I'm 18 and moving to Oregon in a couple weeks.  I got my first hobby grade vehicle when I was 13, been bashing and racing 2wd Short Course Truck since day one.  I have always been interested in drifting, it's actually what lead me to actual hobby grade vehicles, except I grew up out in the boonies so flat smooth surfaces where few and far between, now I've moved out and come made some money I want to buy my first kit.  I'm looking RWD since it's pretty much all I know from the SCT, looks more realistic.  I've started 2 threads over the past 2 days asking for help about a Sakura D4 but no replies to either.  I'm not sure if thats because I didn't introduce myself to begin with (only just realized there is an introduction thing) or what, but I am very serious about getting into drfiting and any help regarding what I should get with a sakura d4 rwd to begin with would be great!

Thanks again hope to talk to anyone willing to help a noob,
Keith.
