YD2 EXIIS (RED LIMITED) Only 300 produced
YD2 EXIIS (BLACK)

Introducing the new YD-2EXIIS kit in Standard Black and limited Red version.

Our High-end RWD chassis kit the YD-2EX has been further enhanced!
Already proven to have awesome performance it is now available with the latest upgrade parts and new curved slide rack steering system.
It will be available from all good hobby shops at the end of February.

The Aluminum/Carbon high precision curved slide rack provides a smooth, precise and consistent feeling from steering inputs from the start right through to maximum steering angle.
This is possible with our no bump steer design that allows you to use many castor and kpi options without affecting the steering angle over bumpy surfaces.
In addition to the standard black version, a limited production in anodized Red will be available whilst stocks last. (limited to 300 sets in world-wide)

Yokomo Announces RPXII D-Spec ESC + RPXII Controller 12/12/18

RPX II D (Drift Spec) Brushless Electronic Speed Control ESC [Yokomo] BL-RPX2D

BL – RPX 2 D Racing Performer RPX – Ⅱ DRIFT SPEC 

■By using only premium grade matched FET’s with super low internal resistance that helps suppress heat generation, we acquired the strongest power handling so far. Giving the greatest feel and stability in the history of drift specific ESC’s

■ Team Yokomo found the best set up based on test results from various types of track layouts and surfaces. Once installed on your chassis you can use this as a base setting.

■ Carefully selected ESC output modulation on initial throttle inputs  to enhance traction, providing an unique control advantage on low grip surfaces.

Case size: 32.9 x 34.6 x 19.6 mm

Weight: 44 g

BEC: 6 A / 6 V, 7.4 V


By adopting special grade top grade FET and low resistance power supply, it suppresses heat generation and achieves the strongest power feeling and stability in the history of drift ESC. Team Yokomo has conducted preliminary tests on courses around the world and has pre-installed drift-only programs decided! You can enjoy drifting with the best feeling as soon as you install it on the machine. Especially for the output setting of ESC which emphasizes traction, please enjoy the unique control performance that linearly links the rise of power and grip feeling!

 

In addition to using smartphones etc. on Wi-Fi module BL-WM (¥ 4,700), which is on sale at the same time, change of setting of ESC will be released simultaneously with RPX-ⅡD, programmer for exclusive programmer RPX-Ⅱ (¥ 2,700) But you can set it.

Yokomo New Slide Rack PREORDER!

New Aluminum rounded Steering Rack System will be finally released!!

This is the answer from YOKOMO for the perfect steering performance with YD-2S and YD-2E. Team YOKOMO have been long tested at the field and resulted several victories in 2018.

Installing high precision Slide Rack will reduce the backlash around the steering wheel, and will increase more rigid steering feels and decrease the shaking.
Curved design has selected for mainframe which is sandwich with carbon plates to prevent from the interference with tied rod at maximum steering angle. It allows the drifter can feel more freedom in deepest angle drifting moment.
The slide mainframe is installed with an angle to the forward tilt in order to reduce the bump steer which the tendency of the wheel of a car to steer itself as it moves through the suspension stroke. The body roll and suspension motions will not influence the car to turn more sharply than the driver anticipates.

Yokomo Announces a New Gyro (V4 DP-302) ! 11/22/18

This super high performance new generation drift steering gyro supports a wide range of users, ranging from drift beginners to high-level competition participants with newly developed circuitry to give the user 4 selectable modes.

With the latest high-performance semiconductor chipset and programming, it helps to eliminate any undesired steering shake from gyro operation.
Detecting excessive movement and reducing the chance of unsettling the chassis. Giving the user unparalleled control over almost any surface.

The quad control system, which is a revolutionary new function, is roughly divided into two: “dual gain mode” and “dual gain control”.

In dual gain mode, ASSIST (assist) and NOR (normal) can be switched by the dip switch. In the ASSIST mode, correction of the gyroscope works strongly against driver’s operation and steering inputs. Allowing even total beginners to enjoy RWD drifting with ease. In NOR mode, the driver’s steering operation is prioritized, making it possible for you to counter steer your chassis allowing more control over larger movements of the steering range.

In dual gain control the gain can be adjusted in the range of SOFT and HARD respectively. In SOFT mode it will be easier to obtain initial front grip by suppressing the initial response of the gyro, taking away a little of the punch, making for tighter more controlled transitions. So it will be suitable for driving on smaller low grip tile and carpet track surfaces. In HARD mode, it is set for driving beginners and large-scale track layouts by increasing the initial response of the gyro.

We have also included an endpoint adjustment button that allows you to set the travel of the servo through the gyro, preventing any unwanted stress on the steering system, reducing power drain and overheating your servo.

The feature of this products are
1) Thin flat design new aluminum case
2) Capable for 2ch and 3ch transceiver
3) Selectable steering end point
4) New generation quad system which is 4 selectable mode

[Dual gain control]
Soft/Hard, switchable
Initial sensitivity of the gyro can be selectable in 2 mode
[Dual gain mode]
Normal / Assist, switchable
Driver’s operation priority can be selectable in 2 mode

This gyro will deliver the freedom for all type of RC drifters such as beginners to podium finisher in the world.

FIRST LOOK: Yokomo DX1 Type R Motor (D1 Comparisons)

Super-G finally got their hands on the first batch of DX-1 Series Motors from Yokomo. The Type-R has been shipped out, but the Type-T is still a few weeks away.

A little DX1 history: TYPE-R (HIGH RPM) and TYPE-T (HIGH TORQUE). One should feature more torque, and one has a smoother rev.

We decided to compare the D1 Spec versus the new DX1. Both are 10.5T. So here we go:

The package is the same, they both come with the same sensor cable.

Cosmetically, they’re very similar, the DX1 seems to be more “exposed”. This will most likely benefit cooling properties.

Seems like the both the front and the back of the motor looks almost identical to its old counterparts.

Looking at the etching on the shaft, looks like the old and new share the same specs?

We have a 2gram weight reduction from old to new.

The DX1 features a little chart for you to refer to as a tuning guide.

Our initial testing felt it was slightly smoother. The D1 may have more torque than the DX1? We have to do more testing. One thing is apparent, the DX1 generates more heat. The chart says is essential to use a cooling fan. We will add that and do more testing.
