However, I have found a good setup without ARBs, but raising the to centre instead with the optional shims. I'm still adjusting to driving indoors, especially as it was a very tight/small course. But I was improving until I had issues.

Which setting is the actual arm length.
As you can probably tell, I bit the bullet and upgraded last night.
I do not think that the ultimate chassis will fit. You might clarify this directly with 3racing. For example via Facebook. Normally they answer every question.
Regarding the inner upper arm link: the xi-sport link is between the 2nd and 3rd position of the rc crew chief model. You can easily add this position by changing the model.

Sorry, I'm possibly being a bit dim, but I can only see one XI Sport to download on the RC Crew Chief web site.
Also, which kit gives you the adjustability in the inner upper arm mount points?

Not second model. You need to change the model configuration with rc crew chief...

Not specific to the Sakura, but most people I've seen tend to use around 5-8k on carpet, and 2-4k on asphalt with their TCs.

Wow, I didn't realize that my setup was now the property of Photobucket.

I'll dig it up. Decent setup for Ozite. Might need a few tweeks for FT 2.

Wow, I didn't realize I used to run blue springs in front, and only 3K in the back.

In hindsight, I did prefer a car that understeered initially and had a very planted rear during cornering. Also, I'm confident in saying that I am a better driver now, than 2 years ago.

I started off with your setup, but found it had too much understeer. This was probably partly due to my poor driving at the start though.
I would be really interested to see you current setup though..

For anyone interested, the Hobbyking version is currently on sale. 51€ at EU Warehouse, whatever at the others. Would've been a good time to get the second one for spare parts, but it's currently looking unlikely as I already spent way too much on other things. Plus, it seems the class I'm using the TD10 v2 to race in isn't even getting enough cars to actually be able to race said class anymore, so not much need for spare parts in that sense right now

I understand from the Manual there is a direction for ball caps as they are not symmetrical.
But the manual is not very clear. What is the right direction for ball cap and top cap? Thanks

The ball cups should have a slightly raised ring on the side that goes over the ball. It isn't easy to see. You can also hold the cups against the ball, without snapping it on, and see that it covers more of the ball when held up the correct way as the diameter of one side is slightly larger than the other.
