The RC drifting noob finished the the Sakura D4 RWD chassis rolling kit build last week. It probably took me about a total of 8 hours (accumulated) to get almost all of the parts assembled for the rolling kit. It probably is too slow for you guys out there, but hey, this is my first scale RC, ever! Cut me some slack.
Back to the build, there were 9 labeled bags, and another one for the tools inside the Sakura D4 RWD box. The bags are labeled clearly and corresponds with the each of the components or sections that will be built. For example, bag 1 is for building the main chassis frame, and the lower suspension arms.
It’s great for 3Racing to include some tools that can be used when building the kit. I have found them very useful except for the pliers. Get yourself a long-nose plier instead.
So, here’s some shots of my build.
Aren’t the Sakura D4 kit stock wheels lovely?
Warning: Don’t ever do this unless you want the shock oils spilled.
Tada! The finished chassis rolling kit. Instead of using the stock mounting posts, I bought a set of Eagle Racing magnet mounts. As of this moment, I’m still contemplating whether to actually use the magnets or use a velcro strip.
The body shell I got is a Pandora RC BN Sports SilEighty S13.
