Looks like Yokomo does it again! Finally a shorty battery holder! The new SXIII will come with the new front bulk head as well. This is a great choice for anyone trying to get a top notch car!

A couple of interesting things:

This new SXIII uses what we all know as the EX deck which is usually the lower center gravity version. But now it’s the E deck with the S gear box(top mounted motor).

A lot of us have been doing a S/E Frankenstein build, but little did we know, we were close to making a home brew SX3!

We can’t wait to bring some of these in next month and do some testing. We will try to source the new battery holder for those EX1 and EX2 owners.

Yokomo Official Release Note:

The SX series, which enhances traction with a high mount motor, has been redesigned to double deck specifications! Corresponding to high speed driving with a significant improvement in pitching rigidity, quick handling and sharp turning has evolved even further. The front bulkhead is fully loaded with optional parts, such as a one-piece aluminum body, and this is already a competitive kit that responds quickly to severe steering operations.

High-quality finish with plenty of aluminum parts. A highly rigid integral bulkhead improves stability.The shocks are equipped with an aluminum super low friction shock.
Graphite upper deck with significantly improved pitching rigidity. The steering system is a highly evaluated slide rack specification, which draws out neutral characteristics throughout the range of motion.
The newly designed battery holder is designed for low-height batteries. Two types of battery holders are included, and standard size batteries can also be installed.

The rear side inherits the SX series, and the motor mount also comes with a special type of heat sink shape. The motor is rotated in 7 steps around the spur gear shaft, allowing fine adjustment of the weight balance.

● NEW Aluminum integrated front bulkhead
● NEW graphite main chassis
● Graphite upper deck
● NEWΦ4.8mm Pillow ball specifications (upper arm, tie rod, king pin ball)
● Standard short Li-po compatible battery holder (New shape)


FIRST LOOK: Pandora BN SPORT BLS ZN6 (FRS)

This ultra aggressive look is pretty sick!

The aero really takes the ZN6 chassis to the next level!

The detached bumpers allow for a more 3d realistic look!

Might be a huge milestone! Looks like they’re giving us nice masking paper sheets. The back of the sheet has a QR code that takes you to a PDF!

We ran out sheet through the laserjet printer and was able to make our own masks!

These masks might take an extra step to get working, but the material is much nicer than their older stuff.

Looks like you get the usual BN Sport decal sheet and body decal set.

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.
