Give this a shot: http://www.teamgravityrc.com/store1/...ct/id=26632441

don't bother with a one-way. spool or gear diff only.

I was happy with 500 000 cSt, happier with 1 million cSt, and happiest when running a solid front axle in my 13.5T hopped up Zero S on high grip asphalt. I tried going back to the oildiff when my solid broke, but wasn't able to find the flow and switched back to spool as soon as I got the spares.

Hi, I have just broke my solid axle spoon cup. May I know where to get the part? I would prefer aluminum upgrade for this part. Thanks a lot!

Default springs on sakura ultimate

I have received pink painted springs as well with my ultimate, and the manual says it's the following:
M1.5 x 13.5 x 25 T6.5 Spring (pink)

So I guess it's 6.5.

I am still in the building process and I made some low quality pics during the build, because it looks just plain awesome. I own a Zero S as well and I am not used to have so many shiny aluminium in the chassis

Here are the pics:

Sorry for not making it clickable, but since I am new, i am not able to post URLs.

I think you're right that it is 6.5. After reading your post I went back and checked my manual again and it says the same thing. I looked for the spring rate in there before but I somehow missed it. lol.

Thank you

Hi all, how do you find the stock flange nuts to secure the wheels ?
Are they any good for you ? or you bought something else ?

Default suspension mounts

Hello Guys,

I want to change my plastic suspension mounts on my Sakura Zero S to aluminium ones. The problem is, I only find FF, RF and RR mounts, I don't find any FR ones.

Do you think the RF-0 will fit as FR block as well?

Are the "Narrow" suspension mounts better? How different would they perform?


coderzone77: The flanged nuts on my Zero S work very well, I have never lost one.

Thanks stoto ! But I Don't know if sakura Xi Sport flanged nuts are same quality.
By the way: I NEVER used them because I saw they were not auto-locking type, so I changed them and never run the stock flanged ones...
Today I lost a wheel during the run at local track... well, maybe it would have been better to use the stock flanged nuts ?
Or mayb to buy some from Xray, Associated ?

Here are some places you can get flanged nuts. They work well for me. Other companies make them. You may get them at your local hobby store. Make sure they are the right size.
