Yokomo BD10F competition FWD touring car

Yokomo have introduced their new BD10F competition FWD touring car, which utilises the components from their BD10 touring car and realises the optimum weight distribution for FWD drive. The bulkhead and suspension arm are the same as the BD10LC, but it is a pure competition FWD touring car that has been converted to FWD by changing the main chassis and motor mount. The dedicated weights on the front and the position of the motor near the front ensure the traction required when accelerating. They have managed to eliminate the excessive steering response due to the weight increase, by changing the Ackerman ratio with the long bell crank. At the rear, in addition to the Axon shock that has a reputation for smooth operation, a mass damper that is simple but has a high effect of canceling vibration is adopted, and the rear grip is increased to prevent stall when cornering. Of course, there are some optional parts for BD10 that have been released so far that can be shared, and running costs can be reduced, including the sharing of consumable parts.
