So more of the same, no?

Sakura makes decent stuff for sure.

Looks like Iím going need a lesson in this ď AckermanĒ thing.
Shameless plug, go to facebook.com/becomeasetupguru to learn more about all that jazz.

@airwave, it looks like it sits on the same width as previously so just a reverse design nothing thoroughly tought out. Not advocating either side,only trying to learn more.

Well seems like I am contributing to off topic so let's steer it to the right way. Looks great and has lots of potential,hope it stays affordable while having the whole nine yards

Apparently new plastic.

Boo. I was hoping my spares could be used as legacy replacement parts - like when 3Racing went from Zero to Xi.

Are pink parts going to be an option or did they get rid of that all together?

Advance 2K17 was all black. The Sport NU is a mish mash of black, pink, and bronze. Looks like they are getting away from the pink.

the NU is all black with bronze shocks, no pink bits.
The only pink bits that might work on the 2k18 are the shocks, arm mounts and screws.

It seems that 200$ mid-level touring cars are back.Having this kind of conception/material/setup possibilities for that price is pretty rare... Maybe the Ghost 18 can compete, but I don't know any other...

At first I hated the pink and I grew to like it. Bronze is ugly anyway you spin it. Bring back the pink!

got it. Iím all for these low budget touring cars. And in the hands of a fast driver, I have no doubt it can hold it own. What Iíd like is to see a local track carry and promote car like this. Seems an entry level class is a struggle. Then promote an entry level car.
I own a few on the high end. Yet currently still race USGT with an low budget car. Motor/esc cost more then car did.

I really like this recent spate of cheap touring cars. There's now six on the market.

Nothing recent about it, 3Racing has been releasing top level cars for years now ... exactly every 2 years there is something new. All in the $250 range

ZERO (2010) > ULTIMATE (2012) > ULTIMATE 2014 (2014) > ADVANCE (2016) > ADVANCE 2K18 (2018)
