Anybody knows what they mean by SLP (Steering locker pin) ?
The first thing that came to mind would a pin you add to the steering to lock it on center. This would allow you to set alignment a little easier. Who knows what it really is...

The assembled pic looks promising, too bad it is quite low res.

I wonder why the change in advertising tact though? Releasing snippets with explanations, to releasing a final pic with no information.

I have seen a few more hi res pics of the arms, and chassis with toe blocks mounted and it looks extremely promising, it looks like they have taken strong points from a number of chassis and made one car.

I am really excited to be driving one at TITC next month, im hoping it will be here relatively soon so i can prepare it for battle.

New updates on the website

http://www.3racing.hk/sakura-zero/english/

Click on each of the features in the list at the botom of the page for more details. There are some quite interesting features not seen on other cars, as well as a number of proven designs seen on other brands, the best of both worlds
English descriptions to be updated this week.


My TITC car for BL should be here mid next week, so hopefully by next weekend i will have a chance to give the car an initial shakedown run before getting on the plane for Thailand.

The RDS diff is a good idea, and I had this idead years ago , until a friend made the comment that the speed is different between the "top" and the "bottom" of the cylinder... actually the cylinder would have to be shaped like a cone to compensate for these speed differences... and if you push that concept you end up with a gear diff muck like serpent... with aluminium gears instead of steel "rollers".

Yes but as I see RDS diff is not in a shape of a cone so it has more friction.
I would also choose for a cone. That works better.

yeah but in this case, friction implies slippage, the way I understand it...

Yes this is a strange that they want to do it like this.
You get a slipping diff in each corner.
I think that they want that so you have a bit more traction when 1 wheel has a less grip than the other one.
Than you will have still some traction on the wheel with grip.
I think that's why they do it.

you mean like a limited slip diff ? I confess I have difficulties picturing a spinning diff mentally..but who hasn't ?

I guess we'll have to see/hear the first users to judge...

Yes, but I think you need to change your total setup.
You get a less smoother diff in the rear.
It's like you drive with a not smooth and very tight diff.
It will have more traction so I think for carpet ok but not for asphalt.

From my understanding the RDS will use short roller bearing pins instead of round diff balls, so that the forward drive of the diff is maintained while having a good smooth diff action.
Due to the extremely small surface area of the ball on the plate, it requires a ton of pressure, and wears the plate quickly as we all know.


Im sure there will be some further feedback in the next 2 weeks, as final preparations are made for TITC.

Wether it works in all conditions or not remains to be seen, the fact they have tried a new solution to an old problem is to me very refreshing.

Looks good. I've gotta question the logic behind making the suspension blocks specialised for the position that they're in. With tamiyas you can use the same block in any position, it looks like that isn't an option on the sakura zero

The wishbones look nice and beefy, how strong are they likely to be? In comparison to Cyclone ones being excellent and Kyosho ones being made of chocolate.

Those diff "balls" look interesting. Those have a lot more surface area than your typical balls. I'd am very interested in seeing how well they work.
