Yokomo Drift Package DRB Hyper SSG High Traction Chassis
The Yokomo DRB Hyper High Traction Chassis is now available in Special Silver Graphite (SSG) or black graphite. Drifting RC has always been style oriented so now you can choose the color your want to best match your style. The new high traction chassis will enhance both traction and maneuverability.
YOKOMO DRB is a true high-end drift RC chassis without compromise. This chassis is targeted for intermediate level RC drifters. The Yokomo DRB is a cleverly designed front mid-ship motor layout and propelled by 2 belts. The most unique feature of the Hyper Traction chassis is that it offers a significant improvement on mechanical traction. The main chassis is designed is such a way that it will flex and deform to produce greater traction for RC Drift. The goal is to achieve more aggressive chassis performance while preserving the overall stability while drifting.
The newly redesigned Hyper Drive motor bulkhead also lowers the center of gravity of the chassis for even greater performance. The Hyper Drive bulkhead design has also improved the efficiency of the belt drive system. Greater rigidity in the motor bulkhead will also allow the perform with greater throttle response than before. Overall the Yokomo DRB Hyper Traction chassis is a big boost in performance compared to its predecessor.
A major upgrade that this chassis received is the full 45° steering angle; with adjustable Ackerman positions. This new feature is ideal for the countersteer drifters that now have a choice between parallel steering or Ackerman steering characteristics. Testing of this chassis reveals that it is very stable in both high and low speed situations. It maintains its performance in any situations and is an excellent performer for Drift RC.
Yokomo always used the best materials available when creating this Special Edition chassis. The carbon fiber is of the highest quality available and all aluminum parts are machined to the strictest of Yokomo standards. All aluminum parts are machined with high quality materials for the best result. This is a high performance, high-end Drift RC chassis, it will outperform anything else at the local drift track while looking good doing it. It is well worth checking out if you can afford the price tag of the chassis kit
