probably the belt tension is too tight. Get these, including a 19T centre pulley. For the last item, u just need the alum washers

RM72.60

I think this is the most vital upgrade for the car. Actually it is more of a necessity

I figured out what the noise was, I was using a tamiya pinion that was marketed as 48 pitch but wasn't. Aw well of to the LHS today for a REAL 48 pitch pinion.

Tested my Sakura S yesterday at Glenmarie, I was impressed how the car handled. At first I used the default set up ,the car was ok but having a chassis roll issue. After 1 pack about 5 mins with 11.5 with 0 timing and no boost. I've used 2000 diif oil for rear and 30000 for front, I feel the rear is abit loose so I change to 50000 front and I've got some spare top springs ,pink for front and white for rear. Now the car handle better on the long sweep no roll anymore and I feel that I can push the car a bit more and I haven't really balance the car yet just with the standard shock no upgrades.
But when I try the 11.5 with turbo boost there's a bit of issue of the rear coming loose that I think is either the issue of no anti roll bars and bodyshell as I've used and old LTCR bodyshell that has a recycled wing so the down force is totally out. But I think if you're racing the 17.5 series ,this car is more then enough stock standard with just some minor setup issues.

I am trying to install the narrow rear blocks. The hinge pins sit really really loose in them. Is this normal?? Doesn't matter how much I shim them they wobble in the holes. Is there different hinge pins?

Put some pictures up so some one can spot perhaps the fault?
If they arn't loose in the original blocks and you put everything in the new narrow blocks there shouldn't be a problem.
If there is maybe you got a bad set?
I pic says more then thousend words.

First time out with it today. Something is not setup right. It's like driving on ice. The back end keeps sliding Out amd I cannot hold a line. My ta05 had no issues with same electronics and tires.
Where should I start?

Thanks guys.. will add the balls to the list of things to buy

Monkee... you using the stock setup?? I started from there worked fine for me. What springs are you using? When I tried soft Tamiya spings it handled like it was on ice...went with the stock springs from the kit and it was better.

Raced VTA last night. Made the A-main for the first ever time. Car ran so smooth which helped my driving. So glad I bought this car. Worth every penny and it was not that many pennies

I think I may have figured it out. The small shaft that connects the rear C hub to the arm (that is held by the smallest screw) was loose and half falling out. Thus creating a bad wobble during driving.

fitting a large pinion into this car with the stock motor mount is a bitch.
i ended up having to take both spur mounts off the chassis as well as the motor mount just to get the pinion on.
not to mention the challenge of actually mounting the motor and pinion and setting mesh.
grrrr...

i also had to dremel out some of the inside of the rear part of the upper deck so it would clear the pinion shaft.
3racing didnt give much thought to small spur / large pinion combinations.

i ended up using this combo..



here she is ready for my son to party
