DRB Samurai Spec Upgrades

Evolution of the DRB Chassis Continues.

I have been accumulating parts to complete the Overdose DRB. But along the way Ive been USING the chassis. This is NOT a shelf queen carpet only "ooh don't touch me" chassis.

It's had a very hard life... from DIB to DIB Reverse to DIB275 to DRB to DRB OD to V2.

As you can see the Spur gear cover has flown off before and been scraped and shredded, 

The Overdose motor mounts only really supports low countersteer levels. So of course it's been modified too gaining extra height for larger centre rear pulley, I'm not a big fan of the thin Yokomo Bridge but the thick monster I picked up already carved for the motor mount is working great.

Recently I installed these discontinued items. Overdose steering belcranks and I'm yet to fit the DRB Saver, because I have a Tamiya item already.

I don't think there's any more I really need to do to this one... except maintain and drive it more and more.
