Anyone convert a YD4 to RWD?
#1
Considering a new Yokomo and the new YD4 looks promising. Only concern is what to do to convert to RWD? Anyone convert one yet?

I saw a RWD YD4 at my local shop/course so it can be done. I didn't examine it too closely. You could run it without the front differential built. Depending on the suspension pin diameter, you might be able to swap in Y-arms to increase steering angle.

If you search Kong Drift on Instagram he has a few pics up of his conversion. Not sure how it rides, I imagine it being front bias the rear end needs a little weight depending on the track and tires. Y arms should swap in fine, issue would be the c hubs but replacing those should not be to bad either. MST HT lower arms, KPi knuckles, done and done. Sorry, sounds simple but I have yet to wrench on one.

Sorry for the delay in the post,

Here are the aftermarket parts I used to convert the YD-4:
MST HT Aluminium Front Lower Arm Set (Purple)
Usukani KPI Knuckles (Black)
Wrap-Up Next 0148-FD Aluminum KONDO Custom HD Upper Arm (Black)
Yokomo IB-414KBC (Black)

I got a lot of help from Kong, who is my local drift course and shop. I am currently working on replacing the servo mount with the aluminum upgrade pieces and tuning the suspension.

This project was initiated before the YD-2 was announced.
