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.

Yokomo Releases New YD2 Curved Slide Steering Rack

Here’s a couple of prototype photos from Team Yokomo’s last visit to Super G

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.
