Design: Drift Kollektiv * 2013 * Drift Competition Body
Body: Yokomo Chaser
Paint: Tamiya Black & Translucent Red backed with Gold. Added custom matte black pattern on top.
Wheels: Panasport Rims
Tires: Depending on the competition. For the German IDS (International Drift Series) RC Art Carpet Tires on the carpet tracks and R2 T Drifts for asphalt. Yokomo R2 / R4 tires for the Dutch D1/10
Accessories: Custom Decals, custom taillights and the biggest spoiler mount I could find. 😉

Description: I always like to run big sedan bodyshells. So for my 2013 “Drift Kollektiv” team body I chose for the Yokomo (Kunny´z) Chaser.
Since I run with a stealth body mount in front I had to modify the air vent in the hood a bit to make it less deep to start with.

I chose for a duo tone color scheme with a red top and black base. To achieve a vivid metallic red I used Tamiya translucent red and backed it with gold. Although I used translucent color successfully before, it went pretty wrong this time, due to sub zero temperatures while painting. A lot of spots and uneven red was the result. So I added a matte black pattern on the outside to disguise the mistakes. And how it turned out this was actually just the thing the body needed to make it stand out. – Lucky mistakes. 😀 … As with last years C35 Laurel the chaser was destined to wear the DK – Drift Kollektiv – livery. I custom designed each decal and printed it on chrome foil. – White mounting parts, blue tinted windows and headlights complete the look.

Since the German RC-IDS requires the body to be “pro style” this year I added an excessive amount of decals, flaps and of course tow hooks in front and rear. To go the whole hog I also added the biggest spoiler stands available. – Although not required for a pro drifter I fixed a lit D1/10 license plate to the rear as well as some custom tail lights.

The shell was already chosen “best body” at the first round of the D1/10 in the Netherlands and was voted for “body of the month” on the German drift forum. – And I am glad to see it also internationally liked at driftmission. Thanks for all the votes! 😀
