+1. Excellent value for money. By visual reference the spool seems identical to a 416's.

When tns asked how they compare i took it as he was asking whats the difference in specs, and that is how i replied.

With regard to performance, there are probably 8 kits that for 99.9% of people will perform similarly.

Also, it depends on what A main you are in as to how fast you are
I had Tamiya support for a while and played with a stock TA05 kit, with many good results, but it was still a budget low level car.

I like the little pink thing you have and have never said otherwise But any guy I know who has a pink car needs to cop a bit of $h1T from time to time.

Not long now guys until the little pink fella's start shipping.

Looking forward to seeing peoples responses to the Sakura.

Hardman - Have you reserved yourself a piece of Pink hotness?

Oh BTW all, those free carbon fibre pitboards are awesome, very flat, and ultra light, half the weight of the more common alloy thin boards.

Bradd,

I am seriously considering this chassis in the near future.
There are a couple more tests for our control class left,that I would like to do on my current platform.

I will have to check out your pink parts this week....that sounded a little creepy ?
Do we know if Mr Go Go is getting these in ? Or is it a Fish exclusive ?

Darnit it looks like the interesting diff with the rollers is an option and not standard with the car now. Any info on the diff that will be coming with the car? Besercoe when you ran the car was it with the option diff or the standard one?

I don't see how the rollers can work. The different arc lengths one end of the rollers will have to travel compared to the other will make the whole system bind up. Last time I saw Besercoe playing with the little pink thing he had the roller diff in and geez it felt tight.

Yeah that was my fear on the roller system as well. However if they get it to work it should be interesting as it shouldn't need near as much pressure on the diff rings to keep it from slipping. I wonder if it felt tight because he was still adjusting it like a ball diff where it definitely would feel tight due to the different arcs.
