Building on the success of the Sakura D3, 3Racing are back with another affordable chassis. These kits were designed for drfiting from the ground up and thus offer adjustability for camber, caster and more. When setup the AWD chassis is ideal for someone learning how to drift but bear in mind it will require some tweaking to get there. Prefer a 'purer' rear-wheel-drive experience? The 3Racing Sakura D4 is also available as a RWD drift chassis here.

Incredible Chassis Design

Effectively 'mid' mounted, the motor fits just forward of the rear wheels for weight balance, whilst the battery can be either mid-mounted or hung over the rear diffuser depending on driver preference. The twin belt system features two tensioners to ensure the drive system is reliable under the stresses associated with drifting. Adjustable Y arm front suspension allows for extreme camber and the lower arms allow for 15 degrees of front caster. 65 degree ultra-wide-angle driveshafts are employed to keep the wheels spinning at these extreme angles. All four 55mm suspension struts feature oil dampers, the bodies threaded for adjustment. The kit is finished with satin gold twin-spoke wheels pre-mounted with high performance drift tyres.

Electronics not included

A chassis kit, the D4 does not feature any power, control or transmission equipment. At a bare minimum you will need a 2-Channel radio system (transmitter and reciever), battery and charger, motor and speed controller plus a steering servo. This is on top of screw drivers and allen wrenches. All of this is available on our store but feel free to contact a sales advisor if you are new to the hobby and they will be happy to guide you through what is required.

Requires Construction

Note that this is a chassis kit so will require construction, which many will see as half of the fun. An experienced builder can easily have it up and running in a day.

Rather spend your time drifting than building but still want a highly-adjustable chassis? Perhaps consider the pre-assembled D4 RWD. Like the base chassis kit, this will still require motor, speed controller and other electronics, but will get you drifting quicker.

3Racing offer a wide selection of spares and hop ups for the chassis. Indeed the availablility of such parts is what initially attracted us to the manufacturer. From solid rear axles, gear sets, motor coolers, to aluminium battery trays, there are Sakura hop-ups for your needs.

Plastic Or Carbon Chassis
Hello, is the chassis carbon or plastic?
Greg
  • Hi there, this is a full FRP chassis, meaning it is made of strong composite plastics, but not carbon fibre.

    Thanks
