The Tamiya TRF419XR uses a standard dual-bellcrank steering system. It is ball-raced and has aluminum turnbuckles reaching out to the wheels. Toe and Ackermann are adjustable.

Build Notes:
Using the kit dimensions for the turnbuckle lengths seems to be a good place to start.
Step 1:

Build the steering bridge. A light dab of blue threadlocker on these ball ends is suggested.
Step 2:
