    Its hard to get this correct without knowing what body you are going to use, you need the measurements from the body post to the center of the wheel to get it positioned right. And thats not an easy measurement to take, I dont know if im willing to risk doing it wrong, making your body unusable. :)

    well you see i was actually working on a mounting system using pieces of aluminium, what i have come up with so far is a peice of aluminium bar that mount directly to the bodu posts... this is really hard to explain in words so i shall try to find a diagram or make one.

    I have been looking at this chassis for some time now. Got to test it out and check it out first hand this weekend at our final drift comp of the season that we had. This chassis is very impressive and can easily compete with the ones that some of the guys have $1000 into. For the price of it, it is impressive that its actually so good when other front mount drift chassis are way more expensive. I did get some video of it running on the track we had and I am for sure going to be getting one now. Good to know that you where able to find a Front One Way that works with it since it is needed for sure.

    If my memory serves me right I use a 22 tooth piniong.

    I would recommend using a 24 tooth one with your engine. But the easiest way is to buy a kit with several and test what works for you.

    A small update, I got some aluminium belt pulleys, I ordered 3 13T ones and one 22T to replace the stock plastic ones. Only got two 13T so I fitted those. My D3 is now no longer CS but 50/50, for now.

    I fitted the same belt pulley on the rear and front differential, making it easier to know what CS ratio Im running.

    I also ordered some more hopups, I will update when they arrive.

    Hey, how are you... Very much like your D3 CS, got mine all finished off this morning (the kit anyway) and I am very happy with the quality of it as well! The Drift Mission decal kit you put on the car is a nice touch, I have not seen many sticker kits I like but that is a good one!
