YD-2 2WD Drift Car Kit (Plastic Chassis) by Yokomo
This product was added to our catalog on August 2, 2017.
The Yokomo YD-2 2WD Drift Car Kit features an innovative 4 gear transmission for good throttle response and high rear traction. The design helps to provide great lateral balance with neutral steering characteristics to create more room in the line. The design also features Ackermann settings that help to provide natural steering characteristics. The design helps to provide a full counter steer set up, with easier to drive characteristics.
As a drift car, a 4 gear transmission is an innovative concept. By setting the motor horizontally, it prevents neutral steering characteristics by preventing the left-right balance from collapsing due to the counter torque of the motor. On the other hand, since the rear traction increases with the throttle ON, it is possible to create an additional sense of stability and acceleration during corner exit. The enclosed type gear box is also attractive for its high dust resistance.
High Angle Steering
The high angle steering design helps to prevent the rear from unloading and stalling less during cornering. Of course, you can change the installation position of the tie rod to change the feel according to driver preference and the surface conditions.
The composite main chassis draws the best traction balance with moderate stiffness. Drift running with a hard tire may cause a reduction in traction due to vibration, but the resin chassis can improve the feeling by absorbing vibration. By changing the battery holder, it can fit a full-size straight pack or a short Li-po battery.
The composite oil shocks offer smooth operation with a high level of ground contact. You can adjust the ride height by rotating the spring tensioner, and the shocks are compatible with springs of various lengths. By adjusting the damping force by changing shock oil and piston, optimum settings can be obtained to suit the surface and driving style.
