I'll be rotating that servo 90 for more chassis room and more weight forward. Would be nice if the motor was more forward, but we'll see how it does when its out. My Zero will be benched for a few weeks while I rebuild the whole thing and figure out the servo saver issue. I hope they offer an upgrade kit!

Servo saver issue ? ... simply put on a higher quality one (Tamia is fine) or make sure your servo centres properly

I did, but it went out real quick. Not sure if I had defective spring clips. I need to order another one. Before I ran without a saver and no issues. But I switched to hard topdeck. I cannot run that servo horn with hard topdeck because of topdeck design width, so I had to switch to servo saver. Hard to find compatible servo horn that works. Anyways, I need to order a soft topdeck and go back with original setup. I sold my soft topdeck to a friend because he broke his. That bastard! Everytime I try to order one, they are out of stock!

I said awhile back that I would post pics of the car. Here are some blurry cellphone pics of my Zero. One show easy access to motor screw when using the awesome Xenon spurs. You need this if you are going to use the hard top deck. This is a 107 spur.

Yup, the motor mount have moved 3mm forward, and the handling of the new Sakura X1 is superb.

We have tested the X1 prototype here in Malaysia and during TITC 2011.

Hey RCMarket, if you are out there. Are you dumping all 3Racing products now? You were the largest HK 3Racing dealer, now you barely have anything. Anyone else notice this? Just curious.

Yes, I noticed that. I went to place an order for some spares this afternoon and had to buy them elsewhere.
