I got mine to hook up well last night with the kit springs and -1mm retainers,
narrow 3deg rear toe blocks and .5mm shim under both.
I laid the rear shocks in to soften the transition left to right , though it's worth mentioning - don't forget to adjust your droop after adding the rc shims.I didn't and that's why I was looping out worse.
Very pleased with the car's performance - excellent steering and corner speed.... all now with stability

Default My Sakura !!! Lovely Pink !!!

Hi all,just got the car and have played with it at West London, thought I would share some of my picswith you.





Have wired her as short as possible and have played with LiPo location and seem to have found the best place for balance of the car.

Running Novak SS Pro 13.5, Hobbywing XERUN and Core RC 116 Low Profile servo, am just waiting for RC Market to send me my spring set and 3 degree rear toe in block as well as a selection of running spares before I run her properly, 3mm Ceramic diff balls make a huge difference BTW lol.

Thats the normal bottom deck. He has only flipped the belts and pushed the lipo out so it doesnt hit the front belt. In the first pic you can see the mount for the battery weights, the lipo deck doesnt have them.

No the LiPo holders and strap are the Exotec ones from my Hot Bodies Cyclone, just needed to countersink a couple of holes in the chassis to mount the uprights and it works a dream.

Flipped the belt to allow the speed controller to come more toward the middle along with the RX, pushed the LiPo's out to balance the car without weights as we have a 1350 minimum over here and I want my Cherry Blossom to be as near to that as possible. Exotec conversion is remarkably easy to do, little expensive but it's the best one on the market I think.

I know this question was asked before but I don't think I understood the answer. What is the new motor mount suppose to do? My only complaint to 3racing about all the hopups coming out would be to put out the gear diff before all this other stuff. I can't see how this new motor mount is going to help the car...???

I was told the gear diff and the narrow chassis will be available from 3Racing this Friday. About motor mount, I not sure if its a new design or not, coz I can't see any differences from the current one, I also want to know this.

I've been looking all over 3Racing's website and I don't see any mention of a new motor mount.

Comparing the pic posted earlier to pics of the car on 3Racing's website it looks identical to the stock motor mount.

The difference is the screw hole behind the spur. That has been "lowerd" so there's more acces to it... If it "helps" you?... No not to go faster

I've logged into both the normal 3Racing website and the wholesaler side and don't see this as being mentioned as being anything different than what comes on the kit. They usually put that in their "Articles" section. Still looking at the pic posted earlier it still looks just like the stock motor mount. The stock one also has the spur gear side screw hole lower than the other side.

Looking back at the website I think I can see where the confusion is. There is a motor mount listed under the "option parts". But if you look through the parts listed there you will see that 3Racing lists all their parts under "option parts", both stock and aftermarket parts. Reading the description of the motor mount show there says "Motor Mount is one of the standard parts of SAKURA ZERO". And the pic shown there is the same as the one posted earlier in the thread.

Has any of you guys tried the rear narrow blocks? What do they do actually? Will it change the rear track width?

The narrow rear block reduces the rear track and was 3R attempt to give the rear end more stability.
