Yokomo has just announced their new “Now a days” SSG conversion kit for the Yokomo Drift Package. The new conversion kit will retrofit a double-deck silver surface graphite (SSG) chassis onto the standard Drift Package. This gives the standard drift package a necessary update to modern RC Drift chassis specifications. Replacement of tub chassis means that there will be more strength and flexibility to the chassis, and is ideal for ensuring traction on a variety of different track conditions. This SSG conversion kit has been upgraded from the traditional SSG Drift Package and is now more capable. New steering linkage allow for more steering angle, new top deck and motor mount for more efficient operation, new steering geometry for better angles, and many more new features. For owners of the standard Yokomo drift package, this is worth checking out.
The new “Now-a-days” will increase the overall potential of the standard Drift Package. It is refreshing to see that Yokomo has finally chosen to release a new SSG carbon kit for their long lasting Drift Package chassis kits.
