You need a set of outdrive from a RRR V1 kyosho ref No: VZ219 (can be found cheap now)
I changed the internal gears for NT1 metal ones, the originals were plastic, but I guess they will do too.
The bearings are the same size, there is plenty shims to adjust your diff.
And you need a 40t diff which comes extra. (37 and 38 gears are standard in diff, 39 and 40 are separate spares)
It could be interesting to try a 39t on front...

On the minus point, you cannot use blades anymore, except if you remove some of the outdrive, which I did not want to.
So instead, I fitted some heatshrink on the ball and pin ends, it fits nicely with smooth action.

I am at the track tomorow to test all this if weather permits.
Is the sakura diff a bit too wide of the TC6? I think I measure it before but can't remember..... BTW: With my old sakura I change the drive shaft and out drive to Edam spirit (a 1/10 nitro touring from taiwan). It was a perfect fit for the sakura. Think it should work with TC6 too.

Of course a servo saver is the solution but this is not what PIMP seems to be saying, I was already using Kimbrough savers in the 80s and still have a couple around.

No the Sakura fits fine, it needs a few shims behind the bearings but all is good, shame the outdrives are not direct fit, they are very small and the bone doesn't get near it.

Was hoping to race today but weather is bad, so have to postpone.

For bodies it depends on the track but i use mostly Mazda6Speed and LTC from Protoform.
Upgrades:
- Gear Diff - for sure
- 3942 - 1 pair of silver associated springs
- 3943 - 2 pairs of blue associated springs
- 31262 - Silver anti-roll bar
- 1402 - 2 pairs short turnbuckles

All the rest comes with the kit. By the feedback of drivers around here maybe some Reflex Racing parts should be a nice upgrade also, but personally i've never tested them.

There's still the servo saver, as built into the steering bellcrank, too. No idea what a "mount saver" is, or why you would even need to save the mount.

Hi Olly,

I just got a TC6 and have some spare Sakura geardiffs i want to try, but they appear to have a slightly different pitch on the pulleys.

Did you have any trouble with the Associated belt on the Sakura pulley?

The PPB billet suspension mounts are a nice addition. You don't "need" them but you may "want" them. I am a believer.

I fitted a 40t, like that it seems fine, but unfortunately, no try today, bad weather, so I will post as soon as I have given a few laps.

The bodies inner diameter are the same. They use the same size pistons and springs.

oh cool. thank you for your reply! After switching to s411 for one month I was thinking going back to TC6. Stupid I sold my TC6 already..... ya, the of the drive shaft's "head" is much bigger in the TC6. Just a bit smaller than the T3.
