Exactly, running the 48p / 67t I run, the rear one is to get at.
Won't be a problem though, as i'm switching to turbo 17.5

+ EVERYTHING is cheap for this car, coming from a former xray owner.

Any spur gear with no holes in it, or spurs small enough to not have holes (anything for 21.5 motors and up, like the 25.5 VTA spec), you won't even be able to see the rearward motor screw, let alone put a wrench in it.

It IS a necessity if you use higher turn spec motors and need small spur gears.

hi sakura users. i nid help.on power out of the corner spins out. i have assembled the sakura s box stock using 50k tornado front diff and stock 2k rear diff. the only upgrade was my aluminum shocks which was exactly the same as sakura but different color. i put in stock slilicone oil front and rear and used L and M shock clip on every shock. we run on concrete track here in cebu, philippines and using exceed 37sh foams. i am using the speed passion 10.5T motor. i am also using rr+30 suspenson mount.

1. what should i adjust to prevent on power from corners?
2. what pinion should i use?

I am also having trouble getting to my pinion unless i remove my motor which is a bother.

3. will changing the upper deck or changing to sakura zero vertical motor mount fix this problem?

currently i have installed 24t pinion and the motor sounds like it needs to go around 26t or 27t. the problem is the 26t pinion and above won't fit past the motor mount if installed on the motor and if i tried installing the pinion while the motor is mounted, my hudy 1.5mm can't get a good fix on the grub screw of the pinion.

4. will changing to vertical mount solve this problem by having a bigger hole through the motor mount?

i am definitely buying the vertical motor mount since it is very hard to tighten the motor mounts through small holes of the spur. my spur is misaligned when i got it (prob a defect). do you have any other recomendations i shud buy other the the list below or should i just quit and buy a t3? i love how the sakura runs but with pinion, spur, and motor mount probs, it makes me tink of getting a t3. i only got the sakura since the parts online was easy to get to.


Ugrades i am buying;

3RAC-WX124/PK = Wheel Adaptor (4mm) - Thick
SAK-05 = Aluminium Gear Adaptor For 3racing Sakura Zero
SAK-13B/WO = Graphite Main Chassis 2.25MM (Narrow) Sakura Zero
SAK-31/PK = Front Bulkhead For 3racing Sakura Zero
SAK-32/PK = Rear Bulkhead For 3racing Sakura Zero
SAK-49 = Damper Spring Set
SAK-63/PK = Narrow Suspension Mount RR+30 (RR3 Degree) Sakura Zero
SAK-66/PK = Vertical Motor Mount For 3racing Sakura Zero

Jezp,
- check your chassis tweak, make sure its flat.
- try use a thicker front diff oil, like 300000. Or better yet a spool.
- You mentioned you are using foam 37tyres, most of us are using rubber tyres. this might be the main cause of your problem. Are you using foam tyres meant for Nitro cars? if yes, are you using the 26mm front foam tyres in the rear?

I had this problem using rubber tyres, shorten the rear end as the sakura's rear end is wider then the front. Use the narrow rear blocks and you should be fine.
