Yokomo YD-2Z 1 10 2WD RWD Drift Car Kit

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.

BD9 MID Motor conversion kit

Zero Tribe has released the new MID Motor conversion kit for the Yokomo BD9 Touring Car we spotted at the begin of July. This conversion kit is based on the BD9 main chassis. The purpose is to reduce the time lag during the use of the throttle by eliminating the difference in belt length between front and back.

As a result, the motor is laid out centrally, enabling a balanced mid-ship layout of chassis using short LiPo battery.

Revoshock

The Japanese RC brand Team Axon announced the new Revoshock dampers. These big bore shock absorbers are designed for the Yokomo YD-2 and YD-4 drift cars and utilise 11.5mm diameter 16-hole shock pistons (with HVF-coated threaded alloy shock bodies for ultra low friction). The clearance between the piston and shock body is only 0.025mm, ensuring minimal oil blow-by and thus predictable shock performance.

The Revoshock uses a new piston shaft seal design with the lower cartridge seals with a smaller diameter compared to standard P3 O-rings, which ensures the seals are not being pinched by the shock body which created a floating design that leads to virtually no friction between the seals and the shock shaft.

YD-2RR

Yokomo has released the first images of the new YD-2RR 1/10th Scale Drift Car. The RR design offers a new balance with the motor in the back part of the chassis. The model is based on the YD-2E-series, a low center of gravity high speed drifting chassis.

The YD-2E-series utilised a Front steering block and Front/Rear Short Lower Arm with a low friction shock and mat graphite main chassis which enables the use of any type of battery in various positions.
