This is the Yokomo YD-2E PLUS 2WD RWD Drift Car Kit, featuring a Graphite Chassis. The YD-2E Plus features more steering angle due to the Short Suspension Arm which was redesigned to prevent interference with the wheels; the location of steering stopper has also been refined. The main chassis is made from slim graphite made from top-down from YD-2EX which is the high-end model of the E series. By using matted high-grade material, it has become a chic image finish. A longer stroke rear suspension arm is now available as standard equipment. By increasing the down-stroke amount, it is possible to pull out more rear roll aggressively and enhance traction and stability. Aluminum shock bodies are the super low friction type, featuring Kashima coating to reduce the maximum frictional resistance with piston. The largest capacity in on-road car category, 11.2mm big bore cylinder, was adopted and enabled to absorb even small vibrations due to run with a resin tire on road surfaces, it is now possible to get maximum grip. A height adjust system makes it possible to change the car height by rotating the spring tensioner and suitable for various length of springs.
The YD-2E Plus features an innovative design of the 4-gear transmissions for drift use. This system prevents the left/right imbalance due to the torque of the motor, by installing the motor in horizontal position, leading to neutral steering characteristics. Meanwhile, the rear traction will be increased on the throttle, so it is possible to escape when cornering stability and acceleration forces to withdraw. High dust-proof sealed gearbox is also attractive. In addition, the rear transmission gear is a lightweight type by using a plastic bevel gear and aluminum axle, contributes to the improved throttle response and performance.
In order to make use of the rear traction obtained by the 4 gear transmission, Yokomo set the rear toe-in slightly smaller. Push the machine moves forward without wasting the acceleration force when raising the throttle. Since the rear catch is lessened even when turning, it makes natural turn-in and flip-back possible.
Standard batteries are all possible for use with the YD-2E series; standard/short size LiPo Battery, NiCd, NiMH, such as 6-cell battery also available.
