On another note ill post up some pics of th Sakura with the narrow chassis. I should have it rebuilt today.
Here is my current setup, rear still sticks too much, need to gain mid corner speed.

I also marked the changes in the comments section which I am testing this week, most likely Wednesday.

Troy,

For more Midcorner Steering you can try to lay-in the rear shocks one hole.
Shorten the rear camberlinks.
Also some Anty Squad will help to gain more "onpower" steering.

For some more midcorner speed I would suggest raising the camberlinks from 2/3mm to a 4/5mm Along with a slight stiffer front spring will give you more corner speed. You can also try so give more Ackermann (more shims on the streering crank).

Good Luck, Set-up looks okay.

Best Regards

Robert

Troy, Ditch the 1.25 worth of roll centre shims in the front suspension, and get rid of the 1.5 on the RR block. No need for any of that weird shimming.

If anything raise both rear blocks 0.5 mm, with both front blocks on the deck, that will make the car rotate for sure.

1.25 on the fornt blocks would make it push like a bus.

Have someone had problem with very tight front belt? Even though i use the softest setting for the belt the tension is incredible high. Its better in the rear. The car is new but i build it on the narrow chassis

Someone have a solution too?

Put some WD40 on the belt en just drive a battery or two, it will be much softer and a bit longer...

Got to love the Chinglish

I see a few more parts that i asked for in February have finally made it into production. I should find the emails and resend them


This centre pulley arrangement should be much better, and i imagine a compulsory upgrade for all Sakura owners.

I almost finished building mine but have some concerns. The front anti rollbar in the kit was massively deform nothing like the rollbar in the rollbar set i also bought.

The ballcups also have alot of friction in them can someone please post a fix for this? Its pretty much all the ballcups in the car that doesnt run smooth.

If your front bar is twisted just use a fresh one,
The ball ups have not been tight fo me, however a fix for any tight ballcup is to pinch the ballcup with long nose pliers while still on the ball, just do it gently until they free up

After a bit of use, my ball cups are the opposite - getting sloppy!! Parts are cheap on this car, so I won't hesitate to freshen it up in a few weeks time.

This chassis really has outperformed my expectations , i'll be keeping this one for a fair while....

Don't have a problem with the kit front belt.... It may sound stupid but do you have the front belt above the FR arm mount? It should go below it. Trust me, I had seen few peoples done it before......
