Another question if i was going to throw a Sliver Can in it to Race Stock Class where i am what size Pinion would be best suited? There is only 1 real straight section the rest of the track is pretty technical so would be looking for more mid punch im thinking.

Regards
Dave

I was also wondering myself except I have a 5800kv CC 1416 motor in mine. I don't race or anything but since it doesn't come with a pinion, I might as well get one that will make the most of the kit's stock gearing and my motor.

I couldn't find anywhere in this thread with someone using my motor so I thought I'd ask what people think of it.

I was also wondering what you guys thought about Robinson Racing pinions. Thanks!

Since no one answered, I decided to go with 22T, for those who care to know. Based on 3Racing's gear chart, I have myself a TDR of 6.91. I'll get my hands on an 18, 19, 20, and 21 to experiment with.

Also, for those who are still looking to buy the kit but find it too burdensome to read through pages of this thread looking for an opinion, just get the kit. I've seen price range from $99 to $130 shipped. It just can't be beat. For me to upgrade parts of my Sprint 2, I'd have to spend more than what the car was worth brand new. In the end, that Sprint 2 Sport would still not be as good as my Sakura S Zero stock.

The parts are plastic, but the main parts that hold it together are not. I'm talking about the graphite main chassis, top deck and towers. That's pretty impressive to include in a $100 starter kit. The only downside to the kit, the only weakness to an otherwise solid starter car, are the shocks.

It took me 8-9 hours to build the car and it couldn't be any easier.

Your Sakura Zero S came with graphite chassis, top deck and Towers? Are you sure?

Or did you buy these items seperately?

I'm curious if anyone has set there car up for drift? If so, what set up did you use? Are you able to use the spool in the rear?

Mine looks graphite. Fiberglass wouldn't be this stiff, would it? At first glance, I was confused because I thought it was carbon fiber, then when I looked closer it was graphite --similar to the HPI Sprint 2 Sport/Drift chassis upgrade ($70).

A quote from the 3 Racing website .............

Sakura Zero S features 2.5mm FRP chassis and 2.00mm FRP long-cutting upper deck, 3.0mm front and rear FRP Shock Tower, pink anodized aluminum motor mount, 2 belt drive system, front and rear gear differentials, full ball bearings, front universal shaft and rear dog bone, steel turn buckles, plastic quick change differential cover, Li-po and Sub-C battery holder with battery strap, plastic fixed suspension mount, oil damper, tires and rims.

So it is made of fibreglass

Carbon chassis is not that expensive to replace: http://www.rcmart.com/catalog/rc-sak...=595_1419_1467
