Shame you don't speak or read dutch.
There is a very good build report on a dutch forum with all the pro's and little troubles when building this car.
The owner is running it in 17.5 class without timing or boost and it is running sweet.

regards Roy

I forgot to say,yes i believe there are 2 types of gear diffs for the sakura.
The stock as in the Sakura S and the one you buy seperate and that has hard outdrives in the diff.
What seems to be the problem on your car/build?

you get a bit more adjustment, basicly in a gear diff you would open it up to change the weight of the fluid, a diff you can adjust externaly.

ball diff requires rebuilds, a gear diff lasts longer between rebuilds.

What he said
I found out that a gear diff on a outside tarmac track gives you a bit more traction.
But this is what i think.

Speaking of gear diffs.
I just put my Solid front axle in my car. First full throttle on the straight, and shredded my rear gear diff internals.
I have a spare set, but was wondering what are my options moving forward?
I want to keep the locked front, so what should i go in the rear? Std gear diff, ball diff, one way? I am a bit of a noob with how these different set ups will affect handling? I understand locking the rear as well as the front is not a good idea.
I am running 5.5t EZRun with 20t pinion and std 80t spur.

How did you build the gear diff?
As the manual said?
Did you use both spacer rings behind the big satelite gears?
I am running a gear diff rear with a solid axle front.
13.5 motor timed boosted and so on.
Not yet broken a gear diff tho.

Yea all assembled as per instructions. A bit strange, but maybe just one of those things?

So what do you recommend i get for the rear? Std gear diff?

I say try a new set of gears.
Sand the rear of the gears smooth with 400 waterproof.
put some 600WT shock oil in the gear and see how it reacts.
One thing i did to mine is to shim out the play on the out drives.
I put shims between the outdrives and the diff housing to eleminate almost any play there.
Got it down to 0.05mm.
If you do this you can't push the gears to the inside when running a lot of camber and or when you get hit on the wheels.
This will keep the gears in better shape and they run a lot smoother.
I don't run the stock Sakura Zero S gear diff with the black outdrives but the one sold seperately with the steel outdrives.
I don't know if they are different but heard from another guy who was running a Zero S that he stripped the stock diff and rebuild it with the steel outdrives and now he hasn't got any problems any more.

regards Roy
Ps stock gear diff, new gear diff

Depends on what you want to replace.
Just the gears or a whole new diff?
Complete diff is part number SAK-65.
Steel outdrives is SAK-65A.
Gears are SAK-65F.
