Yokomo has re-introduced a new RED version of the Drift Package DIB chassis. The new red edition comes after the huge success of the DRB Red edition. New option parts will also be released for the Red version DIB, including red aluminium alloy bulkheads and other red alloy components. Unlike the very limited Red edition DRB, the DIB looks to be a permanent addition to the Yokomo chassis line-up. The silver carbon and the red alloy really does look stylish and impressive, check it out!
The new DIB in-line battery position allows for greater chassis maneuverability and unparalleled weight balance. The combination of SSG chassis and new FRP bulkheads have been designed with performance in mind. The new chassis is now more slender than the traditional DRB. The main chassis design shares some features from the recently introduced High Traction design, which will give it better handling characteristics.
The new midship motor position has also been moved forward to accommodate the in-line battery positioning. The steering assembly has been optimized so that it will have allowable Ackerman adjustment, or parallel steering geometry. The new chassis is also compatible with the short-size lightweight LiPo battery that were recently introduced by Yokomo. New counter-steer FCD kits will also be available for this chassis. Everything about this chassis has been carefully designed with RC Drift performance in mind. Now to wait for the release for some feedback from RC drifters everywhere. This chassis and the option parts are due for release at the end of March 2012, so keep an eye out.
