My Sakura D4 thread. rwd configuration.




Bored at work as usual.

I pre-ordered a 3 racing RWD D4 with YR GC301 gyro and OMG CM07s servo package about 2 weeks ago. decent deal with free shipping for $159.95 from RCMART.

I ordered my sakura xi sport from them several years ago...

So im jumping the gun and will post my D4 updates to this thread as they come. Shipment is estimated sometime mid-July 2015.

Ive been waiting for a while for the D4. I ve been sliding my xi sport with drift tires for a while. It's not CS or built for drifting, but it was still fun. I wanted to hold off on getting a D3 bc i didnt want to deal with the steering angle mods etc that everyone is doing and i knew the D4 was going to come out.

I will be using a hobbyking 60a ESC and a turnigy XK3650-3050KV. Just ordered those today. Ive been using a 17.5 turnigy trackstar on my xi sport with no complaints.

Initial body will be my levin shell.

not really overly tight. i adjusted my tension to hole # 2 from the top on the bulkheads.

at first when i started that step, i thought it was gonna be too loose actually (until i set the tension).

I have also some trouble when built my d4. The pulley gear adapter (sakd410) was not fit with the shaft (sakd409). It stuck and can not be install or release.
Is there anybody got similar problems like mine?

Thanks

Did you try tapping it off using* a vice or something? maybe a bit of spray lubricant first? then debur the adaptor once you get it free.

im still waiting on my front suspension bits to get to me...

also, i got some more blingy bits to further my available bling. more pics soon. i pinked out the front shock mounts. The uppers i used 2x m3x3mm anodized washers with the pink 5.8 ball studs and some 12mm m3 button heads in pink to keep it all tied together. i could have probably used the 3.5mm washers but i get more threads in the ball stud with the 3.0mm's (its maybe 1mm shorter than the original upper mounts.
And got some more pivot balls and FF 0* and FR (2 piece ones) alum suspension mounts. ( i had gotten some ff/fr prior but i put them on my xi sport ). The back end i had already installed the RR mount with the RF in plastic bc i ran out of pivot balls. With the rear end now alum, i need to shim or throw in a .5mm washer bc it has too much play in the arms on both sides. The front arms are nice and tight.

Keep the updates coming! I'm interested in this car while I have been looking at the D3 for a while until I bought myself a 1/8 scale buggy. Still want to get into drifting sometime though ☺

Hopefully the customer support steps up and fixes your problems. Very annoying if something like that happens.

Im anxiously waiting for the support to come through... i think it may be on its way but not totally sure at the moment unfortunately.

there's a drift track about to open fairly close to me (about 35-30minutes away). from their progress pics on fb, its gonna be really nice. im looking forward to that and the a/c they will have bc texas is too hot. anyone want to trade houses? oregon, colorado?

I decided to improvise a bit. picked up some m3-25mm screws, used 3 x 3mm m3 washers and a few extras from my axial scx10's shock stuff. i think they are 7mm spacers. they fit nice and snug and i used some open ball cups from the axial kit also. im not sure if they will stay put or not...






w kit wheels...

Looking slick! It's such a temptation to buy this car but I'm on a really tight budget right now...

Do you also have the D3 and what are the main differences between them?
