Hmm like standard but with the bars mounted in the middle. That would be center point steering like the Xray and the Cyclone?

Lets hope there is a built-in servo saver

Looks a little bit like the TC4 steering rack . If it reduces the slop in the steering and Tamiya bring it out as a option part i will get one

Lower too (note links going underneath knuckles), and its further back in the car (as you can see the front-rear suspension block). Guess it requires new holes in the chassis, and a new top deck.. so maybe no upgrade kit {can anyone say....416 development )

Interesting to say the least... and it does remind me of the TCpoor rack too.

Is that a new carbon upper deck and lower deck?

Looks to me like both:
New Upper deck - yes
New Chassis - yes

note: just under the steering rack are the counter sunk holes for the current steering rack posts. Looks like a newer chassis to accomodate the newly located steering rack post.

Without a servo saver incorporated in the system...makes little sense to me. But I'll get one anyway

Looks like they finally have also increased the length of the crankshafts, which will help when using the LW suspension into getting full lock while using the outer holes (as they seem to be doing with this new steering). Also interesting is the fact that ackermann will be adjustable.

Looks interesting that new setup. I hate the amount of slop in my MSX steering that the carbon plate gives.

Looks very good I think. Anything to remove that slop would be appreciated.

No, my carpet days on the 415 is over. Getting it setup for asphalt for the TCS race next month up there on the 18th. Plus I have to work that Sunday on the 5th. I would of probably reconsider had Tamiya come out with the 4mm chassis. But they missed out on the biggest carpet race in the world last week.. I'm setting up my Yokomo for carpet duties to kill time while I concentrate with the Tamiyas on asphalt. That's my goal this year... Asphalt domination!! hehe..
