Front arms are a weak point at the swaybar link. Get a couple of sets if you drive like me. On the track the car is very good out of the box.

Yes the XI Sport and Ultimate share a lot of plastic parts, I have an Ultimate and I have built a XI Sport for my wife, A arms, knuckle, rear hub carrier etc all the same. I have upgraded some parts on my wife's car with ultimate alloy parts (floating servo holder, battery holder, alloy front spool on both).

Note the XI Sport works on a 38/19 pulley system while the Ultimate has 40/20, both 2:1. From memory the front belt is shared, while the rear is different.

I have a box of plastic parts to service both cars.

Very satisfied with my Sakura, first outing was in fact our local race, won among Xray T3/T4 :-) with box stock setup, only adjusted rear and front damper angles.

I got previously Mi4CX upgraded to Mi4CXL, but Sakura drives better for my style.

I am using Shorty LiPo, so I needed to drill a few holes for the rear battery holder, car balanced perfectly.

Really appreciate the picture. I was concerned I'd have to buy new lipos and up the cost of the kit. I have shortys for my 2wd buggy, love the fact that the shorty opened some room for the ESC, cause I'm going to use regular sized servo...

Close to purchasing, but new to onroad. I'd love to put a 17.5T in this, but am not sure what classes will be run at the track I'll be racing at as they have not even laid the carpet yet. I'm not going to be racing, just practicing and would like to know what pinion might be suitable to this kit w/ a 17.5T motor and stock spur gear (85T by the looks of the manual).

Cheers

Here is what i have so far. I do not guarantee 100% accuracy, I used 3Racings website to compile it.

Code:

The aluminum are really 1/2 and 1/2, some are from the xi, some from the ultimate. and some things are just purely Xi Sport..

I have yet to race mine yet, but it went together easy. The one thing i would recommend to buy with the kit is the bulkheads. they seem really soft and the screws don't bite that well.
