Default Narrow Chassis

Any one here already try the Sakura new Narrow Chassis?

I already tested with the narrow block + narrow chassis , I love it specially at the high speed cornering, i get the difference feeling compare with the original chassis. I feel more grip and very smooth at the cornering and solve the rear spin issues.

See, it seems like everyone is having rear traction issues but for me its the opposite with this car, spool or one-way on VERY VERY high traction asphalt running 17.5 open or stock I always have the problem with the rear sticking too much. Low bite asphalt, its a little better but not much. I am thinking the narrower chassis will only increase the problem. This is with tamiya white all around and 1mm + roll centers and stiffer top plate and 1 degree of rear toe.

Just help somebody to post it. due he go problem on posting.

Dear Sakura Community,

There is a competition in a brazilian site (fsmodelsport) to elect the most beautiful body paint !
We are in 12 competitors and my body is the Nr. 6 (similar to the Red Bull design in yellow, blue, red and silver !)
Pls enter there and help me to get the Premiuim.... A DVD Video about Carpet Races...... kkkkk
You enter in the site, go a little bit down with the roll bar and at the right side of the page you will find the pictures of the 12 bodies and just down the question: A BOLHA MAIS BONITA É

Translation: The most beautiful body is ?

and than you only have to click in the number 6 ! (me)

the guy that is wining the election is number 10, horrible !!!!!!!
but he asked the votes to many different communities, so I have to do the same and I believe that You guys will support me, your new Sakura Colleague at this forum !!!!!!!

Bodies Nr. 2 and 5 were painted by professional, not by an amateur like me that paints his own body ! This is the real hobby, isnīt ???????

Thanks a lot
From PAULTRIC

Yep, never thought i'd like it so much. I think the colour grows on you
Especially when you see that ugly orange on another brand !!

The Sakura really is proving to be more durable than i'd first anticipated.
I may have been unlucky in my first decent crash, because it has bounced well ever since.
The new gear diffs are awesome value + no leaks !!
