Yokomo – The LCAs we have all been wanting!

Yokomo Y2-008FSC

Recently I have been all wrapped up in my Yokomo YD-2 SX. I feel the front end is something magical. The new upgraded steering system and the new KPI knuckles work so well together.

The one point that has been bothering me was the fact the stock LCAs that came on the YD-2SX were big and bulky. Unnecessarily bulky in my opinion. I found myself taking the Dremel to them to get the clearance I needed for my setup. They came out with some short plastic LCAs, but I still needed to take a little off the corners and knock off the first Shock Boss. I have been contemplating buying the Yokomo Aluminum LCAs and using our mill to do some good looking modifications to them,  but then a little bird told me maybe I should wait.

Notice the heavy modification I had to do to get the clearance I needed. Yes, I know I can run thicker hubs and lower offset, but this is how I set up my front end it and works well for me. I’ve seen many others doing the same, so I knew I wasn’t alone.

Yokomo has answered our cries for a better solution! The Y2-008FSC Chamfered Front Lower Short A-Arm Set! Talk about CLEARANCE! I was pleased to find they didn’t change up the location of the arm and for the most part the lower shock position I have been using is just hairs off. I would consider it the same.

Now that’s what I’m talking about! Serious clearance. Now if you are into the massive angle thing, Yokomo has you covered. Notice the index marks to help speed up the adjustment process.

After testing, I realized with my original modified LCAs I was still getting a small amount of rubbing.  Now  the front glides even better. Yes, I was a little shocked. A couple key points: No provisions for Up Stops (People refer to them as Droop Screws), They allow more droop than stock, you will have to get creative if you want to duplicate the lower shock position if you use the inner most mount.

Definitely a worthwhile upgrade for the YD-2 line. Even if you aren’t after massive angle, the adjustability, and solid build alone are worth the price of admission.

RARE TAMIYA PS PAINTS ARE HERE! LIMITED QUANTITIES! 5/30/18

Your eyes do not deceive you. Yes, we really did get Dark Blue, Pastel Gray AND Metallic Wine Red!

The Pastel Gray is similar to a really nice primer color. Gives off a “dolphin” type of gray. As for Dark Blue, it is the perfect balance inbetween dark blue and midnight blue. If you back it with white, it appears a little lighter, but its a really nice color. We painted a sample on the product images since the cap doesn’t truly reflect the actual color. As for Metallic Wine Red, it’s a really elegant red with metallic tones. Similar to wine in terms of color with shimmery sparkle.

We had to do double shipping to get it here, but we wanted to bring these rare colors of PS paint to the Drift Community. There is a very limited amount of these paints. Once they are sold out, that will be it. We do not have any way of getting more. We are going to continue to try, but we are not sure what the future holds.

You can grab a can today by click one of the links below. Due to international regulations, we can only ship these paints to US Addresses.

FIRST LOOK: BN Sport S15 Silvia (Pandora RC) and NEW PART NUMBERS! 5/17/18

This is the one of the “new” Pandora bodies in the new format. They changed their part numbers from 3 numerics to 4.

Example, PAB-123 was the old, now its PAB-2185.

These 4 Digit part numbers will probably be the norm from this point forward. All there existing bodies will have the new numbering system starting tomorrow evening! Along with this change, there will be a price increase with all their bodies. These bodies are going up about 10-15% in price. BUT some of them are coming with more goodies/accessories.

Let’s jump right into the newest BN S15.

Their new tags are a lot better than before. Not only does it feature a thumbnail of the body set, it also lists the width of the front and rear. This is going to make life a lot easier for anyone checking out their bodies. All there new bodies from now on will most likely have this same look.

The body has nice lines and realistic scale. You also get a bunch of extras like a dash, steering wheel, intercooler, and more! Headlight and taillight buckets are also standard issue.

Comes with your standard BN Sport Decal sheet along with their S15 Silvia Decal Sheet and window masks.

We can’t wait to see some of these start showing up painted state side!

Here’s a painted example from the Pandora Factory Painter:
