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.

GRK RWD Setting Memo

Finally got around to installing a multi link rear suspension using left over WUN parts I used to run in the front. I liked both bump in and out so I’ll have to do further testing. I’m also liking the high lever ratio in the rear, but also tried mounting the shocks to the knuckles but that didn’t feel good. Small modification to the front Ackermann made the biggest change though. Car now picks up speed pretty quick so I can keep up with CS running the same tires.

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.

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…
