Yokomo Announces YD2 Aluminum Ball Diff (8/29/19)

Aluminum Ball differential kit can be used with all YD-2 series cars.

The right and left diff joints are made of lightweight aluminum, achieving 8.3g, which is about 1/3 weight of the steel diff joints that have been released (22.7g on L/R).
Throttle response is improved by drastically reducing the weight of the drive unit, and it is possible to further improve exercise performance by reducing the gyro effect. High traction peculiar to the ball diff is pulled out further, the approach speed to the corner is increased, and make advantage in the tournament.

The Tsuiso Battles:
We will be running the competition as we always do for our SuperShowdown Comps. So for those of you who have taken part in any of them throughout the year, it will be very familiar.

Official Rules Here

Qualifying:
This will be a single run format. Each competitor will have 2 qualifying runs. Each lap will start at the starting line, and will be signaled in by the judges. Each lap will be scored by the judges and the best of the 2 will be your final qualifying score. Classes (Rookie and Expert) will be decided by the judges during qualifying.

We will be using the Super-G Bracketing System, whether we have Top 16 or Top 32, depending on the turnout, the last spot will be up for grabs for the lower qualifying competitors. Example: If we have 19 entries, the Top 15 will be seeded, the remaining 16-19 qualifying spots will battle in a lower bracket for the 16th spot. This means everyone will still have a chance to work their way up, even with a bad qualifier.

Futaba Debuts 7PX-R [Japan Model Show]

Coming soon to the hobby shops a new version of the Futaba 7PXR remote control. This new high-end radio uses the T-FHSS Super Response transmission system (the fastest ever produced by Futaba). The 7PXR has been lightened and thanks to a new weight balance it is even more comfortable to hold.

Among the new features: position and angle of the steering wheel, larger HOME button, accelerator trigger design and an even richer and more accurate internal software.

The remote control uses a 4.3″ LCD backlit touch screen and offers all the features you could desire: telemetry, mixing, epa adjustment, sub-trim, brake mixing, ABS and compatibility with T-FHSS, S-FHSS, FASST and S.Bus servo programming options.

Let’s compare the regular 7PX to the 7PXR
