Continuing its efforts to attract newcomers into the hobby, like with the GT1 release, World Championship winning manufacturer Yokomo has released the Rookie Offroad RO1.0. A 2WD racing buggy with an easy-to-assemble parts configuration based on a flexible, crash-resistant integrated resin main chassis, it is aimed at beginners looking to enter offroad for the first time. Since the basic structure is the same as the racing machine, it is possible to adapt to various driving conditions by changing the settings even when driving on a purpose built offroad track. The suspension and drive system parts are the same design as the top model and come pre-assembled, so by replacing them with lightweight carbon parts and highly accurate aluminium parts, it is a structure that can be finished as a high-end machine. Although it is a beginner-friendly model that emphasises stability, it is also attractive for its expandability that can meet expert-level driving.
