We now have the first pictures of the upcoming Wrap-Up Next FR-D front motor conversion for the Yokomo Drift Package. This will be the first conversion kit released by Wrap-Up Next and by the looks of it, we should have a winner on our hands! There are not a lot of details currently as the conversion kit is still in the prototyping stages, we will keep this post updated as things progress. We are expecting a September 2012 release. This new conversion provides an innovative approach to RC drifting as you would expect from Wrap-Up ^_^, the front motor layout and a new 4 pinion drive system. Wrap-Up is working on some more innovative ideas for this conversion, with front motors and rear wheel drive being the new hotness this conversion package is looking like a it’s going to be a winner. Wrap Up Next continues to work with this chassis design as they begin to drive the prototype chassis. We will keep this post up to date as things progress.
More details can be found in the July 2012 edition of RC Magazine on page. 111.
