@RC Market

What's that for an Topdeck ? How you can screw Screws on the Motor Mount and which Rear Damper Stay you use ?

I tried a Tamiya 416 Tower but it seems like the Sakura bulkheads are narrower than the Tamiya ones so it wont fit for me

That is one of the new cars driving by team drivers. Different motor mount so the rear belt would last longer. Longer rear belt. 416 style steering system, etc.

Is it going to be out soon? Or can we just buy the parts and convert the existing car?

Considering the only real difference is the bottom deck, steering column, top deck, motor mount and MAYBE rear bulk heads. I'm fair sure the parts would be able available to change over.

Hmmmm...that car does not look new to me. The rear shock tower and shocks are the only things that look new or from a different manufacturer.

Every time I have e-mailed 3Racing so far they have said they are not going to release a new car...only new parts.

Hi Guys,

Haven't post for a while so better write something up lol.

Feel free to take a look of my standard setup:

I do not use the narrow rear suspension arm block as I found narrow rear end would give less steering on high speed corners.

Are there no basic carpet rubber setups floating around out there?

Scroll back to page 21 and you will find one.

You might also want to go on Sakura facebook page and ask for setup from there.

Thumbs up

Thanks, that was a foam tire setup on "carpet tile" whatever that is. I managed to find someone in the US who has a really great rubber tire setup, though.

Thanks for the tip on the FB page, didn't know one existed for the Sakura.
