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.

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.

RWD, First Steps

I’ve been enjoying CS a lot recently but I might switch back to RWD for a month. There’s been more RWD drivers popping up recently at Super G, and after switching the front end on the GRK RWD I haven’t gotten a chance to tinker around with it much.Tatsuken on GRK RWD

GRK RWD

Looks like I’ll be grabbing a GRK RWD soon. I wanted to wait for the new FRD to come out but this GRK RWD kit seems like a pretty good deal so I decided to start with this.

The kit comes with everything but the suspension so I’ll have to start thinking of what suspension to get. Currently leaning towards D-Like knuckles and rear hubs…

R31-RWD!

Since the FRD v2 is sold out and the v3 may be releasing soon, I decided to grab the R31-RWD instead. It’s a cheap RWD chassis ($210 here), comes with a gyro and its gold lol. They also have blue if the gold isn’t your thing. The chassis comes pre-built and is ready to drift with just electronics, 64pitch pinion gear and some shock oil.
