Second RWD Chassis Candidates

02/08/2017 at 8:33 pm

So I finally picked out my next RWD chassis to run along side my GRK RWD conversion. Picking one chassis out of the sea of options available today was though, and I wanted to go over some choices I considered in this post.

Proshop Shift

During my visit to Japan in January, I had the chance to check out Shift and drift with some of the guys there. I knew this would be the case, but it still surprised me how different their driving style and setups were compared to what I’ve been doing and reading about online. I spent maybe only a half day at Shift, but it made me question everything I was doing the past year.

Now I’m not going to comment on style, since that’s up to the driver and I don’t like forcing a certain driving style onto people. And I won’t go into detail on how they set their chassis up since that depends on your driving style as well, and is always evolving.

Yokomo YD-2

So I’ve been a bit busy with non RC related stuff recently but I recently got a chance to check out  Yokomo’s new YD-2. There are images of Hayato’s prototype floating around online, but getting a chance to talk to him and drive the chassis in person answered some of the questions I had. So for those of you that didn’t get a chance to come out to the event at GGT here’s a few highlights.

So, my domain got blocked at work so I haven’t been updating my blog lately…Your best bet is to find me on Facebook, but I do plan to update this site every so often.

Also, I’m completely out of the decals I was planning to sell on this site. I wanted to make sure locals got a chance to get theirs first, and I ran out cause I handed them out like candy. I may have Austen do another small batch, possibly produce a volume 2, but for now grab some full size decals instead:

I decided to finally make a Facebook page!

I’ll be posting random stuff throughout the week, and will be the best way to reach me as well.

GGT Straight Away

06/18/2015 at 8:20 pm

Guild n One Yuuki had an interesting post today about what he was looking for while judging a PRO RC exhibition match at Tail-Slider’s track. Their track has a similar straight away to GGT, and the post nails the image in my head when I drive down that straight so here’s  quick translation of a section from his post. Keep in mind this is just what I think would look the most realistic and cool, so if it doesn’t fit the driving style you prefer disregard it.


Keep in mind you enter the straight at GGT coming from the other direction. 


Outclip DP Conversion Instructions

I recently ordered an Outclip DP conversion for a friend but it didn’t come with instructions…here’s a quick translation I did of one.

I’ve been very busy with the shop and Formula Drift last week so I haven’t been able to update my blog in a while. A lot has happened the past month or so…

Track Open!

GGT is open to the public now! Here’s a short teaser of my GRK RWD leading, and a friend’s DIB v2 chasing.

Looks like Wrap Up Next is coming out with their own spring set that supports low lever ratio suspension.
