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.

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.
