Mine is 570g with No battery holders/Velcro with the vertical motor mount installed. No Wheels or tires and no Electronics

I'm going to start installing the electronics and I'll get a base weight in a bit

Just buy the RF -.5* and the pivot balls. Use the stock RR plastic 3.0*. With both of those you'd end up with 2.5*.

Depends on how bumpy the track is but I would start with 40.

OK Sakura fans. Just got mine Ready to run and Body painted and I'm sitting at 1398g. That's as light as I can make it.

I am balanced with a fairly light 2s 5000mah pack. I have some room to move a lighter battery out on the chassis before it hangs off of this wide (female dog)

What is everyone else running for batteries and what is the weight difference from the Stock Wide Plastic chassis compared to the narrow Carbon fiber chassis?

Thanks

I just received my sakura zero s and I must say WHY 3racing did you use phillips instead of hex. Started to put the diffs together and I grabbed a screw and to my surprize was a phillps NOOOOOOOOO!!!! I couldn't believe it. I hate kits with phillips. This is the 21st century and everyone knows small phillips strip worse than hex. I wish I had a giant screw kit so I could change them all out. Oh well ill report later on how the phillips are going.

The Diffs and the spur gear holder are the only phillips screws. I believe if you search through the thread you can find someone supplied a link or specs for hex screws for those locations.

Do I flip my diffs to get the verticle motor mount in or what I couldn't figure it out so I gave up and put the stock one in.
