Yokomo YD-2R Plus RWD RC Drift Chassis

In response to traction control on low-grip roads, which has been of interest to many drift users in recent years, the “rear motor” layout is the answer to maximize rear traction without changing the weight of all equipment.

A heavy motor is mounted on the rear overhang to distribute the load directly to the rear tires. The traction can be applied most efficiently with the throttle on, and an optimal balance with high driveability has been derived! This is a high-spec machine that comes standard with the popular matte graphite double deck chassis, aluminum SLF oil shock, and aluminum front and rear shock towers.

In response to the traction control on low-grip track to which many drift users have been paying attention in recent years, we created the “rear motor” layout which can maximize the rear traction without changing the total weight.

In this layout, a heavy motor is mounted on the rear overhang to distribute the load directly to rear tires.With the throttle on, users can apply traction most efficiently.We finally implemented the optimal balance with high driveability! This is a high-spec machine equipped with the popular graphite double-deck chassis, aluminum SLF oil shock, aluminum front and rear shock towers, etc. This package can even satisfy expert users.

The motor mounted on the rear overhang which is the biggest feature of YD-2R. The layout has been developed to apply the maximum load to the contact surface of the rear tire, and achieves overwhelming acceleration. Especially on low-grip surfaces, you can gain an advantage.

The gearbox of the three-gear transmission has the highest drive efficiency in the YD-2 series. The anti-torque of the motor also works in the direction of pushing the tire against the road surface during acceleration, so the traction is further increased by turning on the throttle.

The gearbox of the three-gear transmission is a special layout that has a high drive efficiency setting in the YD-2 series.Since the anti-torque of the motor also works in the direction that pushes the tire against the road surface during acceleration, the traction is further increased by turning on the throttle.

Standard equipped with aluminum motor mount plate that can set motor position in 6 steps around top gear. You can adjust the amount of roll at the rear according to your preference.

This model is normally equipped with an aluminum motor mount plate that can set 6 stages of motor position with the axis of the top gear.Users can adjust the roll amount at the rear according to their preferences.

Newly designed integrated upper deck enhances pitching rigidity, and high response steering characteristics are also attractive. Since the brace support near the rear can be removed, the chassis twist can be set softly and the mechanical layout can be flexibly handled.

The front and rear shock towers are made of highly rigid aluminum. The response of the suspension operation increases, and the shock from the road surface is reliably received. Of course, the looks are also excellent with bevel edge processing.

The steering angle at the front that catches deep drift angles is a characteristic of the YD-2 series. Depending on the setting of the steering system, it is possible to further increase the turning angle, and the size of the pocket will produce a powerful driving.

The setting of the Ackerman ratio, which can be said to be the key to RWD drift, is a setting width that can be adjusted to various drift styles and corner sizes.

Comes with two types of battery holders, and can support all batteries that are often used in RC cars, from standard size batteries to short Li-po batteries.

Two types of battery holders are included, and they can serve all types of batteries often used in RC cars, such as standard size batteries and shorty Li-po batteries.

The rear suspension arm is a long suspension arm with mild sliding characteristics. The shape that can take a long downstroke improves the feeling of contact when rolling.

The rear suspension arm is the specification for a long suspension one that shows mild sliding characteristics.With a long downstroke shape, it can improve the feeling of contact to the ground when rolling.

Super low friction aluminum shocks feature smooth operation as standard. Absorbs fine vibrations received from the road surface, further enhancing the tire grip. The height is adjustable, so you can change the height just by turning the dial.
