It is already listed on their website. Coming soon. Two sizes ... 37 and 38t . Obviously can also be used on a Tamiya 416 (37t pulley)

Please excuse my ignorance, but when you refer to this gear diff, are you talking about the one-way that is shown on the 3Racing site, or is this a different item (I don't have access to Facebook at work to check it out further)?

I ran the Sakura Zero for the first time yesterday on carpet with good grip and a fairly tight/technical track and struggled in the corners (going from understeer to snap oversteer) on the corners. I admit that I haven't raced RC for many years, so most of my problems are (lack of) user ability, but nevertheless, I'd like to try a front diff instead of a spool.

Browsing the sites, looking to purchase the parts required to convert the spool, I noticed that 3Racing also do a ball diff kit for the Tamiya 416 (3R-416-10 Aluminium Ball Differential for 416), which looks very similar to the Sakura Zero parts (at least in the low quality photos). Does anyone know if the Tamiya diff kit would fit the Sakura Zero? There is fair difference in price between the Tamiya kit and buying the equivalent parts needed for the Sakura Zero (yes, I'm cheap).

3 racing are making a one way for the front and a gear diff for the rear

The gear diff mentioned are not the one-way on the 3R site. The one-ways are for the front and the gear diff are for the rear.

I had similar problem like you do, the car snaps half way through the turn. It turned out that the optional 66g motor weight was the cause of it. Took that out and the car was on rails. The 66g weight is now a carbon print paper weight on my desk.

The 416 diff's is about 1mm wider then the Sakura. Besides why would you want to go that way when the 3R Sakura diff is readily available.

OK, then I will have to buy the Sakura Zero parts. As mentioned above, the reason for considering the 416 diff is that I'm cheap - there is about $10 difference between 3Racing's 416 components compared to the Sakura Zero equivalents.
