Yokomo Announces RWD Drift Springs (New Generation)

The direct type for the front is a rough wound type with excellent response. It responds sharply to steering operation and improves operability with a high sense of touch. Even under high-speed driving, it is difficult to get an understeer due to a break on the front, and it is possible to attract the gallery with a highly appealing approach speed.

Lineup of 2 types of forward type and side grip type for the rear. The forward type responds well to throttle control and has an attractive feeling of acceleration like pushing the machine forward. We draw out high exercise performance and direct dynamic drift driving. In a competition layout where rising acceleration is a key point, forward-type acceleration creates an advantage.

The side grip type takes advantage of the characteristics of multi-turn, and with a smooth suspension that smoothly follows the road surface, it achieves highly stable drift cornering. It is the best match for driving on a technical circuit by the improvement of the unprecedented control. The freedom of drift angle is high even in follow-up and group travel, and it is a finish that is no exaggeration to say that follow-up Meister training spring.

Both types are all-round suitable for carpet / asphalt road surface and soft for P-tile / concrete road surface. There are a total of 6 types of springs that match all circuit / road surface. Along with the sale of each separately, we will also release a set of six good deals summarized.

チームヨコモがプロデュースしたRWDドリフト用新型スプリングが新登場!走行する路面や走りのイメージなど、使用用途の明確化によりセッティングが容易になります。あえて塗装をしないことでスプリングとしての機能を高め、素材が持つ特性を最大限に発揮する仕様になっています。

フロント用のダイレクトタイプはレスポンスに優れる荒巻きタイプ。ステアリング操作に鋭く反応するとともに、高い接地感で操作性を向上させています。ハイスピード走行でもフロントのブレイクによるアンダーステアが出にくく、アピール度の高い迫力の進入スピードでギャラリーを魅了することが可能です。

リヤ用にはフォワードタイプとサイドグリップタイプの2種をラインナップ。フォワードタイプはスロットル操作に対しての反応が良く、マシンをぐいぐいと前に押し出す様な加速感が魅力的。高い運動性能を引き出して、ダイナミックなドリフト走行を演出します。立ち上がり加速がキーポイントとなるようなコンペティションレイアウトでは、フォワードタイプの加速感がアドバンテージを築きます。

サイドグリップタイプは多重巻きの特性を生かし、路面をしなやかに追従する滑らかなサス作動で、安定感の高いドリフト コーナーリングが実現します。これまでにないコントロール性の向上で、テクニカルサーキットでの走行にベストマッチ。追走や団体走行などでもドリフトアングルの自由度が高く、追走マイスター養成スプリングと言っても過言ではない仕上がりです。

いずれのタイプもカーペット/アスファルト路面に適したオールラウンドと、Pタイル/コンクリート路面に適したソフトの2種が揃い、合計6タイプのスプリングで全サーキット/路面に適合します。それぞれ単品での発売と共に、全てをまとめたお得な6種セットも発売いたします。

※スプリングの素材特性を生かすため未塗装となっております。切断面等にわずかなさびが発生することがありますので、防錆スプレー(CRC、WD-40等)の塗布がお勧めです。
