Default Sakura Rubber Tire/Carpet Setup

Here is the current setup I am running on the Sakura, for me it is more than solid, I have been reading the thread, and there seems to be little to no information on carpet setups. Here you go, any questions feel free to ask.

On setup sheet the inner Front and Rear links should be noted as

4mm front
5mm rear

Thanks for sharing. But I'm having a little difficulty reading the gear diff oil. Let me see if I have this right.

Front gear diff= 500,000
Rear gear diff= 3,000

Also which?
motor and turn
gearing
Shock springs

Thanks again.

Not at all, with the o-rings, and the main gasket nothing comes out. super smooth too! I have built 3-4 others and the first one came out the best, so I never touched it again.

Also those who buy the Solid axle will need to buy the matching 38t pulley, as the standard diff pulley doesnt fit. The part # required for this upgrade are: SAK-02 (38t Pulley)
SAK-08/PK (Solid Axle)
SAK-09 (Solid Axle outer Joint)

I've normally used 1000wt oil in the rear diff and it usually leaks all over the place. I wonder how Chubs made the 30wt not leak?

use heavy automotive grease, they're sticky and don't leak. Did this with an old TA02 waaaaaaaaay back in 1999.

It's how you assemble the peices. there are 2 o-rings, and a gasket..if there leaking you have done something wrong...

I have now seen rear diffs with no oil at all, just a light coating of grease, and they work just fine, gear diffs are very difrent that a ball diff, there is no slipping, so the less bound, and free the rear gears are the better that unit will work.
