Yokomo has revealed a Brake Discs and Calipers Set for the YD2: a 1/10 scale EP RWD Competition RC Drift car. The brake discs themselves include an integral hexagonal hub to be able to mount the wheels. There will be available 3 types of hub thickness, 5.5 mm, 6.5 mm and 8.0 mm which will all be included, so that all type of customers can adjust their track width and scrub radius freely.
The brake calipers have a gunmetal color to better represent the realistic look and finish of a real car, and they can be mounted to front and rear knuckles.
Brake discs and calipers looking through the gap between the wheels will give your chassis a true realistic scale look!
The set will comes with new plastic steering knuckles and rear hub carriers in order to be able to install the calipers.
The new Yokomo steering knuckles are set for the optimum trail and kingpin angle which where referenced from the dynamics of a real drift car so steering response is improved while increasing the looks while counter steering.
The steering stopper and tie rod mounting positions are also renewed in order to increase the steering angle also becomes smoother. The rear hub carriers are designed with new upper arm attachment positions.
This new positioning allows an increase in the range of setting the roll center and the camber change to the rear, making it possible to positively utilize the roll especially when at a low grip surface.
By keeping more of the contact area when the chassis rolls by raising the upper arm attachment position this will ensure more stable grip in the lateral direction, realizing aggressive drifting!
