So after some warrenty issues with an I-series 015 Kyosho helped me upgrade to the AWD Lancia Delta chassis with an Audi TT body/Tires (I couldn't handle the looks of the chevette looking Lancia).

Features are listed below....what do i need to make this a fun & fast little drift machine? I usually race on concrete floor and have a set of drift tires coming with the car.

Any tips..hopup, setup or otherwise?

Are there any weaknesses I should be aware of?

What FETs does this use?



•Optimal performance results from the mid-ship motor mount combined with front and rear differentials on a newly designed shaft-driven AWD chassis. Combines with the king-pin and strut 4-wheel independent suspension system for amazing surface tracing.
•Equipped with king-pin and strut coil spring suspension system. 4-wheel independent suspension realizes excellent running stability and road holding performance.
•Specially shaped teeth on crown and pinion adopted in the three bevel gear differential. Also features resin coated metal shaft universal swing shafts.
•Pre-installed with

•Includes 4 types of pinion gear and 3 types of spur gear for a wide range of gear ratio settings.
•Includes collars that enable chassis height to be adjusted to low down setting.
•Bump stop fitted to front to regulate suspension stroke and prevent tire and body contact.
•Easy-access diff unit can be removed/installed by simply loosening 4 screws on the front and 6 on the rear.

3010 fets,am is 1 pair,2.4ghz is 2 pairs.

if its bumpy-ish concrete,make sure you have it at full height(no spacers under the knuckles)

Thanks for the tips. I'll have to check out the concrete.

All AWD chassis are the same. there is no lancia delta chassis.

The stock chassis WILL crack over time. Look into a blue/grey SP chassis with gold terminals. You will eventually need it.

Lancia Delta is an awesome looking car far better than an audi TT in my opinion. Its legendary. Also, since its a famous championship Rally car, its really appropriate to see this little car drifting around some corners.

Thanks for the tip on the chassis. The lancia delta just reminds me too much of a chevette or ford escort. if only those cars had the performance of a rally delta. I'm not exactly fond of the Audi TT either but they were nice enough to switch the bodies since the TT's original packaging was damaged in shipping.

I'm thinking I'll get one of the 3 initial D bodies off ebay. Either that or one of the new skyline's or Aston Martin DB9's if they fit. Those are more my style.

Is there a simple way of locking the rear diff that doesn't require glue or ordering parts.

I keep reading about locking it is better for drifting. Are people really using o-rings for this? Can anybody direct me to where this is shown.

Thanks
