Yokomo YD-2 rear ESC mount
Yokomo have introduced a new rear speed controller mount for their YD-2 series of drift cars. The design is a result of extensive testing of Yokomo’s team drivers, allowing for best possible weight distribution and transfer while allowing for easy ESC mounting and accessibility. The new option is a 2-piece aluminium and carbon fibre construction that combines secure speedo mounting and cool looks with the rigidity of the mount also helping with rear traction. Positioning the ESC in the rear not only helps to increase rear traction, it also reduces weight over the front, further freeing up the weight shift capabilities of the chassis. Increased gearbox and shock tower rigidity was achieved by connecting the whole rear end and also the diffusor for improved throttle feeling while the higher centre of gravity enhances the roll and weight shift characteristics of the chassis. ESC mount will hit stores early this June.
