Yokomo MD1.0 optional parts

Having released their all new MD1.0 Drift Kit last month, Yokomo has just released two optionals for the car. The first is for the transmission. As standard the transmission has 3 gears and positive torque, but by adding a counter gear and reconfiguring it, this conversion set can be used with 4 gears and anti-torque specifications. Compared to a 3-gear transmission, the additional gear increases drive loss, but the anti-torque of the motor works to push the rear of the car downward during acceleration, making it easier to gain rear traction. The high stability and acceleration power, especially on corner exits, are very attractive, and will be a big advantage in pursuits. Also offered is a battery holder conversion to change the battery mounting of MD1.0 to inline mounting. When the car has a certain degree of grip, mounting the battery inline (in the front-back direction of the chassis) suppresses chassis roll, enabling sharper movement when transitioning to an acceleration position at the exit of a corner or when turning a corner. In addition, the front load is slightly increased, which allows the car to steer better during cornering and provides a high degree of control.
