You will still be able to swap the arms with the ones from the Sakura ultimate which are a softer material but length is different by 0.5mm.

Looks like it's just a spare bit of 1mm polycarbonate cut to size.
Just noticed the straight linkage from servo horn to steering system, this was an offset link on the 2k18, what difference does that make?

I could swear I saw an aluminum version last night but here's a link to RCMart for the graphite version:

Says preorder but it also says 10 in stock...

Default Where to buy in the USA

The shipping is nearly $40 from RCMart.

Anyone have a place and link they know of to purchase the 3R Sakura 20M mid motor kit in the states?

Thanks in advance!

I guess it all depends on how badly you want the 20M..looks like the only place to get it is RCMart for now...

Pretty Sure I am gonna make an Aluminum chassis for this, I can make a few more if anyone would be interested probably in the $80~90 range. PM me that your interested and maybe ill put it at the top of my todo list if there is enough people.
most likely it will not be anodized

Do it! what kinda of aluminum do you think you would use? I have been looking into different metals and materials for chassis and there are a few metals I would like to try and see what the effect would be on black crc carpet.

have you ever looked at 2024 or magnesium I know this would make the chassis way over the top pricey but it would be interesting to see the performance gains.

I never have, I just don't have time to test back to back. My thought is that xray invest a lot in R&D, the cheap simple way is to copy them.
That said once I have the cad/cam done , I am willing to machine pretty much any aluminum. I have never done magnesium before so I might read up and adjust my feeds and speeds but I would be willing to try it out if someone wants to pay for it.
