*Updated Specifications* Some new information has been leaked regarding Active Hobbys new conversion kit for the Yokomo Drift Package. Little is known about the actual conversion kit and contents but here is a sneak peek at what Active has in store to upgrade that Drift Package. Unlike the first conversion kit which used the existing Yokomo DP chassis and relocates the steering assembly to the motor end of the chassis. This new version 2 conversion kit will come with carbon fiber and plenty of blue aluminum goodies for the “bling bling” look and improved functionality. The motor relocation will improve its drifting characteristics. The carbon fiber will add much needed stiffness and weight reduction to the chassis. The most important feature is the Suzuki style steering cranks which add more steering angle and adjustable ackerman angle; which we all know is important to countersteer (CS) style drifting. Not much of the details is known about this chassis as of yet, but stay tuned for updates as we find out more! More pictures available in the full post.
