Fleety,

Interestingly a Tamiya 416 diff is a perfect fit in the rear of the car

I believe the same brand driveshafts will fit too

LMK how you go with the shocks. They are identical to their mini shocks, bar the collars,which incidentally, prevented me from getting the front below 10mm ride height
I overcame this with the 3Racing mini springs though , the plastic mini collars will help even more, and may allow use of the std springs.

Yet to check this though, much to do on the domestic front first

Building the car and the design looks very versatile. The car comes with 38t pulleys but they are the same as Tamiya pulleys so if you want to change the internal ratio of the car you can use the 37t tamiya pulleys in comjunction with the Sakuras four different centre pulleys. Makes it easier to combine spur and pinion to achieve rollouts for the spec classes

I know I'll be wanting all the optional weights plus some spares .....

The quality really has exceeded my expectations by far.

To date I have only had one small issue. The grub screw that locks the hinge pin on the front right C hub didn't actually go close the groove in the hinge pin so it didn't lock the hinge pin in place

Other than that the whole kit has been very good

Must be your eyesight , no problems with mine.....
Mine is a roller,electronics onboard.

To do : swaybars, servo horn/draglink,balance / bring up to min weight.

Then I can set the alignment angles and DRIVE !!

Mind you, I had this all done by 4:30pm yesterday ! Today I've only looked at the shock preload issue.....

They fit perfectly because its a copy of Tamiya. I bet the diff/spool bearing holders are the same too.

Hmmm interesting, very interesting indeed.

The 416 diff does fit but there are a few issues if you wanted to use one:

You would need shorter rear bones. The 46mm would bottom out because the Tamiya diff nut is thicker and sits out further into the drive cup. The Sakura has 46mm bones all round. I think the rear could be reduced but will have to check

I thought the diffs for this car were suppose to be like a totally new design using what looked like a roller bearing style diff balls...? Looks like they went a different direction on a lot of things from the original pictures....
