You must not have been watching. I hit every wall and I think I hit every inch of every wall 3 or 4 times. Car held up well though.

Is there a way to buy the roller bearing diff as a whole or do I have to buy the pieces separately

Why do you want to buy the roller diff??
I used it and got rid of it very quickly.
Normall ball diff or gear diff is better.

well I never really use ball diffs. I think gear diffs are more user friendly. I was hoping the roller diff was better then the traditional ball diff. what didnt you like about it.

It isn't smooth and it is inconsistend.
I never got it to work like a normall ball diff.
I chaged it directly to a geardiff with 800 or 900 oil in it.

the issue with the roller ball diff is the slip. because there's slip across the length of the pins, the diff is always tight feeling. and for the same reason, it never bites in, so it slips under power as well. w/o a taper on the roller pins, it's only a half step in the right direction.

I have been in the hobby for only 6 years now. I started with the hpi rs4 nitro and spent tons of money on upgrades. Than I bought a hpi pro4 and and that car was so so, but of lately I have Losi JRXS-R and Corally Phi09 both of which were over $400 new and last sunday I saw a guy race a 100% stock S Zero in the VTA class against my corally and and his car was awsome! I am sold on this car. Can't wait to order mine soon!

Hi, I´m running my Sakura Zero S in a small track with lots of corners.

I´m using the manual´s Set-Up, and running with 100,000 CPS in front diff and 1000 CPS in the rear one, but a lot of times when I´m getting out of a corner the car oversteers and spins completly.

A friend told me that I must use a 500,000 CPS grease in front diff and other friend told me that I must use 10,000/15,000. So I don´t know what is the solution.

Can you help me?

Thanks.

There are many factors for this driving behavior. I guess that is going on with the front diff is not so much intervention. Please change the Droop and raid height. and use 2.000.000 cps in front diff and 400-700 CPS in rear diff.
The most importen thing is that you have a good balance in car.
and increase the front king pin with a 0,5mm shin.

Too bad this car doesn't have a king pin suspension. And that post was over a month old.

Default Low Friction Bando Belt 522t SAK11

Hi all, just wondering if anyone else has had this problem with the sakura s zero.

Changed the main belt to the new low friction (bando) and its extremely tight fit so much so it distorts the chassis and i had to push the chassis down approx 1.5 2 mm to get the top deck to fit. I did adjust the cups in the front diff to the lowest point to release the tension. It almost seems to be 1 to 2 teeth too small. Im running 38t front and 19t center.

Never had this problem with 4 different low friction belts. double check your front adjustment cams. if I remember correctly the dot needs to be facing forward the shortest distance. if you have them pointing down you are halfway into the tension adjustment.
