The Sakura Zero S is a great kit, I hope you enjoy it! Invest in a high quality 2mm hex driver, and use oil or grease on the screws, or you'll be stripping the heads a lot.
6mm may be a lot of wheelbase to fudge. If you can't make the Tamiya body fit, ABC Hobby makes a 260mm wheelbase 240z Rally body. I can't post links to external sites yet, but you can google "abc hobby DATSUN 240Z (S30) Body Set" and click the first link on the ABC Hobby USA site.
I have a mini chassis Datsun 510 BRE #46 body from ABC Hobby, and except for the fact that it doesn't come with chrome bits, the quality of the body and decals is on par with Tamiya bodies. ABC Hobbies also sells light kits, so most of their bodies have the option of using transparent light cans instead of external decals.
I recently received my second Zero S kit, which I'll be building up for VTA.
