I purchased this kit as my very first drift chassis. I opted for RWD since i thought it was more challenging than the beginner friendly AWD.
The Sakura D4 Kit is easy to build, minor flaws like grinding the rear lower arms a bit to make them move freely, but that often enough happens with other, more expensive kits as well. The kit Setup makes the car a bit difficult to drive, if you start out i would suggest you soften the rear up by mounting the shocks more inward.
Otherwise running the stock kit, i managed to drift quite well without a gyro installed. The softer FRP Setup instead of carbon fiber probably creates more flex and so making the car more driveable, which is definately a good thing.
There are alot of upgrade parts available, although in my opinion none of them are necessary to improve the performance, just to increase the "bling factor".
The only flaw with this car is the steering assembly, which has quite a bit of play due to the plastic brace that connects the two steering posts. It is quite an easy fix though, replace it with a proper set of turnbuckle with 5mm Cups, trim the two nobs of the front bulkheads just above the steering crank and you're good to go. That way you can also adjust the ackermann.
Overall, a really great piece of kit. I drifted for the second time in my life and i was about the same level with some guys that were running 400$ chassisSakura D4 RWD was my second RC chassis and for a long time will stay with me. Great and easy to built construction. All components gathered in separate bags, so step after step I build the model. Tools to assembly are included, great.
It's very good chassis for start because You don't have to buy extra parts to do the DRIFT ! Only assembly all, adjust and You can slide ! For adjustment We can do all options, change in the front, rear, balance with the weight moving the battery. Another good think, for Sakura D4 is a lot of tuning parts such as carbon/aluminium base, sock tower etc.
