I was thinking about getting the Sakura Zero S but what kind of body should I look for? I really want one for looks that has good detail like this one from HPI (BMW) but will this fit? I've also seen 190mm and 200mm. Will these both fit? Anyone know where to get bodies with high detail that will fit the Zero S? My friend has a HPI Sprint 2 (Porsche body)...will his body fit on the Zero S?

I really like this one...

Ti is definitely more brittle then steel. But I believe you can find higher quality fasteners then the OEM ones. However, no matter which ones you use, a high quality driver in perfect shape will help. I also pretap the threads as recommended by 3 Racing's Diff. Building bulletin.

Either way a striped or broken off head will ruin you whole day and possibly your diff.

I've got a 200mm BMW body, It fits but a 190mm would be better. If you race, a 200mm may not be legal.

Thanks! I'm assuming it's a little bigger? Do you happen to have a pic with it on the Zero S?

Anyone know where to buy already painted, high detail bodies? If I can find it...my ideal body would be Mercedes-Benz DTM body or AMG one!

Had to raise the rearward one with a 2mm spacer plus some other leftover part (conveniently pink as well) since towards the center pulley the belt is a little higher there. Looks pretty nice... even more pink than before
