Yokomo DB8-2018 aluminium chassis kit

Coming very soon from Yokomo is the BD8-2018 touring car kit in an aluminium chassis version. Offering the same features as the recently introduced carbon fibre chassis’d BD8-2018, the alloy kit includes a 2.0mm aluminium chassis over the carbon fibre part, making the car ideal for all high-traction surfaces. With the use of the aluminium chassis also the overall centre of gravity is slightly lowered and at the same time, the heat dissipation from the motor is greatly improved as the main plate can act as a heatsink. This is especially handy when running stock motors in high ambient temperatures. The first batch will include Yokomo’s Rear Toe Control system RTC for free and shipping of the kits is expected for end of October.
