With the new rear short arms and the geardiff, you got more then enough traction at the rear.
I had to stiffen the suspension up the get enough steer
I run 13.5 boosted and timing , so more then enough power to steer with throttle but still needed to get more steering
Now i got it about right.
Going to try the settings tomorrow and find out.

regards Roy

Ran the car this weekend with the short arms in the rear and stock arms up front. Car seemed to have more corner speed and was more planted. Really liked the new arms....

+1 also just ran my zero with short arms and 4mm hex hubs in the rear, stock arms and 5mm hubs up front. Rear had more grip and was no longer on the edge of always breaking traction.

I also have the narrow blocks for the rear, will using these with the above give the car even more grip in the rear?

Ran my car with the short rear arms,4mm hex,stock front arms and the new rear shock setup.
No narrow suspension block.
It was a dream to drive
I just came 3 tenth of a sec short on my TRF416X witch i ran back to back for guidelines.
Have to say tho that the Sakura wasn't exacly setup as the Tamiya tho
Blew a ESC in the first quali due to a short circuit in the motor, so had to borrow a ESC and motor that wasn't setup like i normally had
Still tho, the rear was really planted, even with "old" tires.
Me is a very happy camper
Just waiting for the dual steering crank so i can check if that will help to get the car the same as the TRF416X

regards Roy

Well my parts came in for my Zero. So now I can put the front bulkheads in the rear. BUT, my dual steering did not come in. I should of paid heed to the words of SeaBall. Oh well, we'll see if I get the part. If not, I'll just make a claim on PayPal since they charged me for it. I'll post pics later in the week.

it will show up. save for the lack of communication, they have been really good. what really gets me, is that the website will show certain items/quantities as out of stock once you put them in your cart, implying that the items without issue will ship. if they fixed that, the place would be stellar.

btw - i have a feeling the steering from the sakura-ff will work.

I read about 10 pages back that some were having issues with belts breaking... is this still happening?

I am hoping to get a XI when they become available here and running it in modified - any advice/suggestions to keep in mind?

I believe the belt breaking issue in Mod has been diagnosed as an incorrect pitch on the gear diff pulleys. You will notiice that the gear diffs have been discontinued as they are releasing a new version with a corrected pitch on the pulleys. This should remove the problem. To date it has not seemed to effect the lower spec classes

It has happened to me 2 times in one day running boosted 17.5. I was running a ball diff. But I think I know what the problem was. I will post more on this when I get home from work in about 2 hours.

Home from work. Okay, my belts broke twice in one race day. Rear belt, running 17.5 boosted. What I think was happening was that I did not shim out all the slack in the diff. The rear diff had a lot of side to side movement. This is bad for one good reason. If your diff shifts to one side, it will allow the diff/belt tension cam to shift inward and it will rotate. This will cause the diff to have uneven belt tension on each side (for example, the left side will be tighter than the right). If this happens, the belt will have tension on one side and snap suddenly.

What I did was shim out the side to side movement of the diff and switch to a 416 belt. But to run a 416 belt, you need to use the 20 tooth pulley (I was using the 19t pulley with the stock belt). On my car, if you run 20t pulleys with 38t pulleys, you need to set the front belt to the loosest setting just to take out the belt tension. For the rear with 416, you need to set it to the tightest setting or the belt will be too loose.

I will be going back to the stock rear belt and 38/19t pulley combo. We will see how long that lasts. I guess I'll run a ball diff and a spool since I never knew the gear diffs were all wrong (). Plus I'll be running the front bulkhead in rear setup with SpecR 416 rear shock tower. I may even cut my soft top deck down center for even more flex. We'll see. I was notified that my Sakura FF dual bell crank steering will ship next week. So we shall see.
