Looking at the material I think they are the same as Associated's TC5 wishbones. And if that's so, it means they're strˇˇng.

i think the wishbones look much like Kyoshos.

I think Sakura Zero is gonna be a great car, i am more worried how good the car is gonna stand crashes and stuff :P The construction seems pretty solid i think, but we will know when TITC is coming up. it might be stunning good car!

And the prize seems more like a Hot bodies kinda. so it should be good........

The proto car arrived last night, and is nearly ready for a run tonight, but most likely real testing to start on saturday.

The Pink looks very impressive in person, and the machining on the alloy and carbon is top notch.

Actually the carbon is probably the cleanest cut of any chassis that i have seen, even better than Xray. The finish on the motor mount area, and the underneath taps slot is amazing.

One interesting thing not pointed out on the website is that the shocks are M Chassis length, but still have no problems with spring length.

The ackerman adj is neat, controlled by 1 screw you can reach through the bulkhead.

The option weights are great, and the carbon finish on them looks trick.

Looking forward to seeing it on the track.

This shouldve been the Xray T3, lots of new stuffs and innovation.
Hope itll be competitive performance wise. I wouldnt mind owning one,
the price is really attractive.

Good job 3Racing R&D! You think out of the box compared to others
who played safe, copied and improved existing RC techs.

LOVE the needle roller bearings in the diff,what a brilliant idea for a touring car.
It can only prolong the life of all the components ,whilst giving a smoother feel. It's all about surface area, so the more rollers,the better.

Looking at this, there is no reason why they cant make a caged "Torrington" style bearing,a-la an automatic transmission.

Obviously the price would be much higher,but how many shell out BIG coin for ceramic ball bearings??

Ok after looking at the pics I'm even thinking about this chassis. That diff idea I agree is very nice. Date of release?

the car looks the goods, after seeing it last night. After racing, besercoe gave it a good run, got within a few tenths of the quickest lap for the night. I'm sure he will only get faster. Without seeing the car in person its hard to see some of the finer detail.
