Yokomo YD-2 aluminium 3-piece rear hub carrier

Yokomo is pleased to announce the release of their new team aluminium 3-piece rear hub carrier for the YD-2. The universal shaft features a short axle shaft for narrow scrubs and the universal joint pin is positioned as far outward as possible to activate the suspension movement and enable more direct movement. Conventional universal shafts can also be used by adding spacers so you can feel the difference in movement by combining them. This rear hub carrier set also features selectable upper and lower arm mounting positions, and by making the upper side a separate part the length of the upper arm can be changed variably making it easier to control the change in ground contact surface when rolling. The lower arm can also be installed at 4 different heights, allowing for a wider range of roll centre settings and is an excellent match with the rear weight adjustment.
