Lol the new pic shows 10 in the rears!
:P
After the build, you will find that the front belt is in for a too much tension. I just adjusted the bearing blocks to give the belt a little tension at least while breaking-in the car. After some initial runs, the belt will loosen-up, re-adjust the bearing blocks back by 1 notch at a time till the stock setup...

I can't read Chinese(though I am Chinese ) but I think they are saying that you need to take of some material away from the arrowed areas to prevent touching of the pulley and the belt.

If you are going down the road to upgrade the parts with alloy parts might as well go for the Sakura not the S.

However if you want to get spares and kit I suggest you get in touch with the local distributor in Malaysia.

The box stock Sakura S will be just right for a beginner. However, since I am assuming that it will be driven by a "beginner" - expect some broken parts to come up as the driver tries the feel of driving it around the track (most pros will eventually break some parts in their top notch car also). Upgrading is just an option for the driver - if he considered it as "option".

Now, regarding the issue of buying a full Sakura Zero as against the Sakura "S" with an upgrade, I guess (for me) upgrading the "S" is most economical.

Since you are in Asia, part availability will be a breeze. Some of the items may be out of stock, but they eventually re-stock them with no hassles.

Here you go Dude...

Aluminum Bulkheads, Steering and Suspension Mounts (Front and Rear) at total of US$77.16:
(3R-SAK-34/PK) 3Racing Front Bulkhead Cover
(3R-SAK-31/PK) 3Racing Front Bulkhead
(3R-SAK-37/PK) 3Racing Rear Bulkhead Cover
(3R-SAK-32/PK) 3Racing Rear Bulkhead
(3R-SAK-15/PK) 3Racing Suspension Mount FF-0
(3R-SAK-17/PK) 3Racing Suspension Mount FR-0
(3R-SAK-18/PK) 3Racing Suspension Mount RF-0
(3R-SAK-23/PK) 3Racing Suspension Mount RR+30 (RR3 Degree)
(3R-SAK-10/PK) 3Racing Steering System Aluminum

Additional Spares (Front and Rear) at total of US$31.41
(3R-SAK-41) 3Racing Upright
(3R-SAK-26M) 3Racing Rear Suspension Arm
(3R-SAK-43) 3Racing Front C Hub 4 degree
(3R-SAK-25M) 3Racing Front Suspension Arm
(3R-SAK-44) 3Racing Knuckle Arms
(3R-SAK-42) 3Racing King Pin Post

Optional Upgrades at total of US$76.90
(3R-SAK-48/PK) 3Racing Aluminum Oil Damper Set
(3R-SAK-13B/WO) 3Racing Graphite Main Chassis 2.25mm (Narrow)
(3R-SAK-40E) 3Racing Universal Shaft 44mm Steel

Summing it all up:
Sakura Zero "S" kit @ US $102.00 plus the total of the above mentioned list, your upgraded car will be US $287.47 and still end up with a few plastic spares as well.

You can even buy the spares for the front and rear gear differentials and still end up lower than the street price of the full Sakura Zero.

Not an obligation, but a suggestion. Better for beginner to have technical support especially setting up the car.

The shock itself ain't rubbish only the shaft guide is a bit loose.
I put Photon guides in there and a very little spacer in it so that the o-ring is abit tighter fit.
It still is smooth but i got a lot less play on the shaft now.

regards Roy
