Only difference i've noticed is the outdrives. They have a larger spacing to allow the use of blades, which should increase the life of the outdrives. Other then that I'm not sure what's different.

What shock are people running with the +4mm shock towers?

Also what gearing will give me a 4.0 FDR?

3Racing (#KIT-SAKURA-S) SAKURA ZERO S 1/10 Touring Car

3Racing (#SAK-09) Solid Axle Outer Joint For 3racing Sakura Zero

3Racing (#3RAC-WX124/PK) Wheel Adaptor (4mm) for Sakura Zero - Thick

3Racing (#SAK-66/V2/PK) Vertical Motor Mount - Ver. 2 For 3racing Sakura Zero

3Racing (#SAK-48/PK) 50mm Aluminium Oil Damper Set For 3racing Sakura Zero

Is there anything else I might need?

Anyone have an extra gear adapter? SAK-u05? Need that, but don't have time to order from China. Send me a PM if you do.

Thanks.

thanks! Never really looked at them before.

My problem is, I wanted to get it relatively quick..... everything I've ever seen about their sending things out is that they are slow...... was trying to have it this weekend.... with them taking a few days to ship, from most things I've read, it won't help me out

I will keep them in mind though just in case

anyone got a good baseline setup for a Zero S running in VTA. FDR for the track we have been advised will be around 3.5 ish and it is an outdoor tarmac track. Looking for some guidance on shock oils, camber, droop, toe, etc...

Depending on the track condition, I run about 30-40wt with 2-3 hole pistons. Try -2 rear toe, long upper links and 2mm shims under front and rear inner links (zero kit setup for RC). Shocks around middle position on front and rear towers, 5.75 front and 6.0 rear springs. This is with narrow arms. If your running stock rear arms try going down to 6.5 rear springs. 5mm front ride height and 5.5 rear. Droop 3-4mm front and 2mm rear. Camber -1.5 front -2 rear.

Tune to your driving style.

I ran that setup on the weekend and the car felt really balanced, with just a touch more turn in.
