Does anyone know if the swing shafts and cross pin/coupler from a Sakura Zero will fit into a Tamiya axle?

Reason I'm asking is i was told they fit but turned out the Tamiya coupler (part with the set screw) is too big for the hole in the sakura 46mm swing shafts I got.

I have a couple of pairs lying around and need universals for my FF03 but have no parts to compare anymore.

Thanks!

Hi Guys!

Just bought a Sakura Zero S for my Cousin to start running TC - I will be installing a 540j so he can run the Novice/540 class at our club.

I'll be ordering the recommended upgrades in the next day or two, but wont have the car then, so if someone could please tell me what size Uni's go in the rear it would be great, as I'd like to order those too.

Thanks in advance.

Let me guess........ The lenght???
You need them if your running the narrow suspension mounts at the rear.
If not the axles can bind when using the 46mm axles with a ball diff and narrow suspensionmounts.

Why do you want to narrow the front??
It gives you only less rear tracktion if you narrow the front suspension.
With a gear diff you can you can use the 46mm in the rear but with a ball diff you get binding when running more then 1.5 neg camber.
At the front i didn't have any problems yet with the 46mm axles.

Default Setup

Hi Guys.
Ive been testing my sakura on some flat asphalt with 13.5 boosted to get the front/back ballance right and ive noticed something that might help.
The front is real twitchy at high speeds and i think its the front top link is very low on the inner causing too much suspension movement at high load, i raised it about 2mm and it was way better and far more stable.

what pinion spur combo would I be looking at if I need to run it with a 8.5T I already have in my parts bin? I wanna get into on road but my local track only runs spec classes so eventually will need a 17.5 motor but want to practice first.

Ive got the hardest front sway bar one already..
I actually raised that link by another 1mm and it was better.

I think it might be the cause of a lot of people saying it seemed to have plenty of steering when they go for the first run.

With a 8.5 you want to be around 6.5-7.0 fdr.

48p = 25 pinion 80 spur
