Sanwa SGS-01C drift car gyro system

Sanwa SGS-01C drift car gyro system

German Sanwa distributor LRP introduce the SGS-01C gyro system that helps to make car control much easier, especially on slippery surfaces as it can reduce both under- and oversteer tendencies. Designed with drift car racing in mind the gyro is also usable in many other applications although you have to check with the event’s rules before using it in competition as many tracks, race series and governing bodies ban the use of gyros for fairness reasons. When used in combination with Sanwa’s M12, Exzes-Z or MT-4S transmitters the gyro’s sensibility is adjustable via the radios and even during a run.
