This is the Yokomo YD-2SX 1/10 2WD RWD Competition Drift Car Kit. The YD-2 platform has achieved two consecutive wins at D1 10 Open world championship in the Netherlands and has shown the excellence of driving on any type of surface at several competitions. However, Yokomo has not stopped the engineering effort for the ultimate drifter.
Yokomo has developed a hybrid chassis (Carbon graphite + Plastic side guard) and low profile gearbox to suit the high mount motor layout on the chassis. Besides, the motor can be installed 3 different positions for just enough height to keep the best balance of the car. Moreover, YD-2SX is dedicated to shorty LiPo batteries, but possible to put LiPo in vertical position, and 3 different horizontal positions.
YD-2SX is the genuine car kit dedicated for aggressive drift challenges in super low grip environments.
High Motor Mount Location
The highlight of YD-2SX is the high mount motor layout as a results of new gear box development. Conventional high mount motor layout on YD-2 has been driven by third party conversions, however those are too much height since they just re-layout the motor position by adding high priced carbon made parts with ridiculous appearance.
Too much higher role center delivered the disadvantages on performance as well, such as slow acceleration at the corner exit, and it is not easy to drive at the competition track. YD-2SX enable to select 3 kind of motor positions in order to suits for the best role center to deliver the best rear traction in several kind of slippery environments.
Fully updated designed 4 transmission could squeeze into the bottom of motor, and it is the type to increase the rear traction as rotational torque goes up, supreme for low friction surfaces. Rear differential has 4 pinion gears. Since the motor layout can be changed by selecting from 3 rotate positions at the motor mount plate, the weight balance of the car will be also adjustable to find out the best setting for keeping the supreme steering angle and speed in any kind of slippery surface condition.
The battery is limited to Shorty LiPo battery, but the mounting layout will have 4 different positions by selecting battery stopper location on the chassis. The layout will be Vertical, Horizontal Front/Mid/Rear in order to complete the fine tuning on weight balance and forward/backward traction.
