I think it will attract girl rc racers. Nice. So cute and lovely, it brings out
my feminine side.

I find it interesting that a Chinese company, 3Racing, names their cars in Japanese...

"Sakura" and "Fujin"

Nothing wrong with them using any language, but I wonder if the products gets better reception using Japanese names... Even though Tamiya uses some really cryptic names. TT-01? TB-03?

The car looks interesting though. I guess this car would be for the shaft-driven crowd, since their "Fujin" can cater to the belters...

Everything 3racing i've had has been good quality stuff, although I have heard bad things on part finish.

I like the look of this new car... even if it is pink

Maybe they have more manly upgrade parts in development that are blue?

FUJIN is an actual Japanese company. It is stated that 3racing is distributing their cars. I wouldn't doubt 3racing might even be the manufacturer. The same might be going on with SAKURA or maybe not.
Why would this car cater to the shaft crowd since both cars mentioned are belted?

A picture with your post, when trouble shooting, will probably get more rctech help than without...
