The Japanese Drift giant Yokomo has just revealed the YD-2Z: evolution of YD-2 equipped with a new 3-split transmission case on the shape-up main chassis and will start as a new standard machine! A new integrated bulkhead is used around the front to improve the left-right balance of the steering and improve operability.
The new upper deck is compatible with slide racks as standard in the kit, and steering characteristics suitable for various situations can be obtained with minimal changes.
The gear case of the 3-gear transmission has also been newly designed, and the maintainability has been greatly improved by dividing it into three parts. Since you can access the differential simply by removing the cap on the rear side, you can easily handle even ball differentials that are frequently maintained.
In addition, the motor position can be selected from 13 stages by rotating the motor mount, making it easy to obtain the balance of the center of gravity according to the road surface from low mount to high mount. With 3 gears, the throttle response is outstanding, and combined with the rear traction produced by the supple main chassis, it demonstrates higher combat power than you can imagine!
The pivot ball of the front arm and tie rod is a lightweight and easy-to-move F4.8mm type.
The motor position can be set in 13 steps from low mount to high mount, greatly expanding the road surface compatibility. (There is a gear ratio limit in the low position)
Throttle response is greatly improved with the newly designed 3-gear transmission.
The new gearbox is a 3-split type, and you can easily access the differential by removing the cap on the rear side. If you want to test the feeling with the hardness of the diff, or you can easily use the ball diff, which is frequently maintained.
