Is there a bushing, or bearing, if its a bearing should be 2 bearing, top and bottom next to chassis. Better yet bushing top and bottom. Aluminum and steel Balls should be Loctite on, not metal to composite. Try a different configuration on steering assembly,cuz it really does not look normal

I don't know how others feel, but it is my opinion. Good Luck!!
It's drift car so everything is different. I'm not into drifting so I don't know all the reasons but crazy steering geometry like that seems to be pretty normal. My guess is that for a car running a corner sideways you actually want a lot of negative ackerman so that's probably the reason for it. Slop is far less a problem.

This photo a FF-03, Not TA-06. A Tamiya product. FWD. Steering assembly looking normal, Then what you have posted. If the Mod is done on the TA it should look like this. Don't care what the gentleman say of Steering inclination of drifting. Its all the same with RC's. Photo was taken from EBay Advertisement.

Again, it is NOT FWD? It's front motor. Here is a pic of a similar drift car:

Ok! OK! Glad I'm not into drifting. That steering still looks like crap.

It might be, I have no idea as I'm not into drifting but this is a common set-up from what I have seen and there must be some reason for it. Like I said before, my suspicion is that it's for ackerman reasons.

that's not a Tamiya FF03 in the least--it looks like a Sakura FF.

Again, drift cars use completely different geometry. Although RC drifting for the most part is not really taken seriously here, in Japan and much of Asia it's serious business. I race touring cars, but there are some very nice high end drift chassis.
