Probably a fantastic car for the price... an aluminum upper bumper plate?

Looks well equipped for a $230 chassis.

Nice car.

Steering will result in strange ackermann values...
Aluminum bumper plate is nice but it is not touching the bulkhead...

Anyway it is good to see 200$ cars again... Spec-R, can you hear me?

What are strange Ackerman values? Sincere question.

Either there's some defective anodising going on there, or some poor camera work. Not a good look for a marketing shot.

Having the steerings links with a such angle will result in strange value of differential angle of the front wheel. Strange meaning inhabitual, but it still could work, on low-grip, on high-grip, on both, or on none lol

Thought so, well the Tamiya TB evo 07 is that way too with the reversed cranks. I have a buggy converted to reverse bell crank and going by what I see (while knowing that touring cars have less Ackerman and different pickup points) is that the steering angle difference is small or negligible.

That said, I don't have the Sakura 2018 evo on my hands to see how much Ackerman it has but my hunch is that it's just like every other TC out there...

Iím just starting to look into steering adjustments. Till now drives straight and turns equally has worked fine. What Iím i not seeing in these pictures. Iíve got over a dozen plus touring cars, outside of my 4x and awesomatix, not seeing anything particularly different.

The Serpent 4x uses the same reversed steering setup... along with lots of buggies.

Iíll have to do a side by side look with couple Touring cars. Canít picture buggy steering, been 3-4 years since seen one.

Looks like Iím going need a lesson in this ď AckermanĒ thing.

Indeed but anchor point are not as close as on this car. 4x, awesomatix, buggies use wider steering bridges. It also affects the ackermann.

@Billy Kelly: The price!
