Do they have the balancing setup.
I saw it on the website that the car was hanging in a balancing thing. This way you could see if the left and the right were the same.
I want it.

I saw that too but its not included free with preorder she said. The balancing set up is very innovative, it even has a balancing bubble ( the one with yellow fluorescent liquid) attached to the car so you can balance it precisely. And you can play around with the 'Carbon Look' weights (batt side) to set the balance. However the Balance Set up looks like it will only work with Sakura Zero cars only, coz the mounting/pivoting shaft for balancing is already designed on the shock towers, not that you can't make it to another car but you have to make it precisely in the middle.

My car has already holes there to do some same kind of thing but there is now other setup thing for it jet so I hoped that that would be available.

I think it is looking super so far! what do you others think?. Really hope the price will do this car justice now...because thats the only chance 3R will have to compete with the "big brands" right now.

And I for sure would love to give the "big brands" som f**kin headache

Well, send me the chassis now!

Looks like there were serious clearance issues between the suspension block and the tie-rod...

I had my first proper club race with the sakura on friday night after returning from the TITC. With only a few small tweaks the car was going great, on track it felt like it was understeering, but surprisingly after the run i was just off track record, with a few tweaks to gain steering on the small indoor track i managed to break the lap record by 3/10 and reduce the race record by about 6 seconds. The car is just so smooth, and with bulk rear traction it inspires u to push it harder and harder into ther corners, and allows you to get on the gas early exiting the corner.

I cant wait to try a few more things with the car to see how much i can get out of it.

FYI my car has the 2.5mm chassis on it, due to the bulk traction and temperature in thailand, the std chassis gave it some more corner speed but made it a little more inconsistent for my style.

That preorder price is not bad, but as 3Racing would not want to undercut their resellers, i can see some much better pricing coming from a reseller. Also those carbon setup boards are awesome, not only bling but ultra light.

Brad, which class was that? Mod or stock? During TITC were you in Mod class too? I think I was in the same group as you were in either one of the class. I m definately going to get the Sakura Zero, for the FEMCA race.

Hey bud, i was running my T3 in Mod and the Sakura in BL class at TITC, having only just received the Sakura a week before TITC. I should have asked for one for each class

Locally here there is very little mod racing, so i was racing our mid level class being 10.5t, i think i have found out what i had monged up with the speedie settings at TITC, so i had better power, but on our small indoor track power is less important than handling and agility.

Good luck with the FEMCA race, i have made some suggestions for changes to be made to the production kits, which will make a good car even better.
