Available soon from Yokomo is the all-new YD-4 1/10th scale 4WD drift car chassis kit. Designed by Matsuzaki Hayato the car builds on a low centre of gravity double deck carbon fibre chassis with enclosed shaft drivetrain and a special front motor layout. The steering servo, receiver and speed controller find their place in the centre to rear part of the chassis while the battery compartment for shorty or standard-type LiPos is placed in the front to centre part of the chassis. This very centralised weight distribution greatly improves drift angle stability and initial responsiveness of the car while a specially designed slide rack steering combined with a narrow scrub front king-pin angle allows for high steering angles of up to 55 degree with optimised Ackermann settings. Also included are highly rigid H-arms that further help to create large steering angles. Newly designed and 2mm lower differential cases allow the use of Drift Package Series diffs while the new position makes for an overall lower centre of gravity as do the low-profile carbon fibre shock towers with multiple shock mounting positions. Special spring cups allow the use of long-type shock springs for a sharp yet predictable driving performance. The kit, that will become available in January, is rounded out by a moulded rear diffusor.
