Stockers are 24mm wide.

Anyone have any tips on building the stock gear diffs? Mine keep leaking and if i tighten them hard enough to stop leaking it become very hard to turn.

Have you tried building them as per 3Racings guide?

The best way I have found is to run the screws in with the top first until it is snug and then take the top of and sand the case flat. When you first put the screws in it pulls a little of the plastic up around the screw holes and the seal will not seat fully. after you sand the case down level you take that high spot off and then the case will seal up good and not leak. Have not had a leak in mine since doing this and have ran 12 or so races with it.

Thanks shadow

I saw that last night when i pulled it apart so i sanded it flat and left it over night and it hasnt leaked. But then i read the tutorial last night and it says to sand the flash off the gears too. So back apart the diff goes haha. Iv got a race on sunday so i need it in the best condition i can.

What shocks do people run with the +4mm carbon towers? Trf417 shocks?

Hi Kevin,

I would recommend building a gear diff with the right fluid weight over a ball diff for the zero (based on experience) however, if you're a ball diff fan and can't be swayed, the Parts you need are...

Ball Diff Parts
Steel Balls 3RB-B30
24mm Diff Spacers. 416-10A
Thrust bearings 416-10F
Diff screw set SAK-01
38T Pulley SAK-02
Diff housing SAK-03
Dust cover tape SAK-04
Bearing Set BS-SAK01/V1

By steel ball studs do you mean the 6mm Ball stud hex screws?
If so...

4.8mm 6mm Ball studs. 3RAC-BS4806/PK
4.8mm 9mm ball studs. 3RAC-BS4810/PK

Or if you mean the ones on the suspension arms which are like a ball nut, they are. 5.8mm Ball Stud. Don't have that part no. On my list for some reason...it should be in the back of the manual though...

Edit: just checked it isn't for some reason, I'll keep looking...Ok seems they are 3rac-bs58h5 with a variety of colour codes, the most normal being titanium which is 3RAC-BS58H5/TI...

Got my Zero S in the mail today and I was going to try and make a ball diff. However after seeing what I would have to order I think it's a good time to learn to build & drive with gear diffs.

Nice work with the pink trim nikkon.
I was gifted a few upgrade parts such as alloy bulkheads, cf shock towers along with a cf lower & upper deck from a Sakura Zero.

I'm still considering using the standard Zero S chassis even after I flip the belts for the upright motor mount. The reason being that I'll still be able to utilise parts of the battery holder that the S comes with, I'm no fan of taping batteries into a car.
Should I do this or go with the cf chassis instead and look into different ways of securing the battery?

Cheers
Rob.

There was a mod posted some time ago where a chap used the AE TC6 graphite lipo battery braces along with the stock Zero S strap.

Haven't ever used the CF wide chassis, but the CF narrow chassis comes with battery braces that make tape mounting the battery very easy.
