Planning on buying this car soon XD. Does anyone know if the ball diff on this car is interchangeable with trf416? I heard they are the same. Any ideas?

What motor class are you running?

Stock Xi is good with -3 toe, 5.75 front and 6.0 springs rear. I run in similar conditions with 17.5 boosted. On my track i needed a little more high speed steering, so I run shorter upper links and a .5 or no shim under the inner upper camber link on the rear. Also no sway bars for me, but that's a preference thing. Rear diff oil is 80wt for me at the moment, but I have run as low as 40wt. I now run a diff in the front too with 300000wt, feels more consistent then the spool. 30wt 2 hole or 40wt 3 hole for shocks all round.

The DH upgrades are worth it. I noticed a huge improvement of overall grip straight away. More flex through the whole car. You could possibly split the lower front/rear suspension mounts on the XI, I've been thinking about trying it on my hybrid. Then add the DH upper deck and it would be pretty similar to the DH overall.

Have anyone tried fitting TRF gear differentials in their XIs?

I like how the white diffs look with the pink. Although I may get a new set of belts with it.

Thanks!

Don't the trfs use a different size different pulley? Which would change the IR of the car?

Yes they do. They have 37s in their diffs. And yes it will change the IDR of the car.

I was thinking of changing the center pulleys to make the stock belts fit should the differentials slip in.

So, has anybody tried using the TRF differentials on their Sakura's?

Thanks!

In the "old" Zero they fit
Dunno if the distance of the bulkheads on the XI is different?

Get some sticky tires. Tires are the deal with low traction. Run the tire that the local fast guys run. 16T motor? Must be a Euro thing. Do you do "boosta?"
Just wondering.

I've got the Team CSO Floatable Servo Mount for the Xray T3 and it fits exactly in the Sakura XI DH.

I'll post some pics when I get time.

Nice work, looks pretty good. If only it was pink instead of orange. Do you have any play in the servo? Are you using servo tape under the servo or is it just the mount?

It's just the mount. No servo tape underneath. It's more clean that way.

Yeah, if only it was pink. I'm planning to cover it up with CF stickers just not to let it stand out. It's the pinkness we're all after here, right?

I'm quite sure 3Racing's gonna come out with one of their own.

I thought it wouldn't fit and that I'll have to drill into the mount..
But to my surprise, it was zeroed!

Just took my freshly built Xi DH to a local race today and is encountering some problem with it for our local track (WCRC). it seems the included 5.5 spring is too hard for medium high grip indoor asphalt. Went with tamiya short blue instead. One thing i did notice is this car puts stress on the tires like no other. I've over heated all the tires that would normally work for this track in this temp range except solaris hard. Anyone experienced similar issues?? I also think the 1st gen chassis is probably better for higher traction and more technical tracks we have here. The car rotates hard into turns and can be a handful at times, especially after it over heats the tire half way through the race...
