Overdose Vacula II RWD RC Drift Chassis
#1
The new Overdose Vacula II is a rear midship mounted chassis, very similar to the Tamiya TA-06. The first version of the Overdose Vacula was a Countersteer RC Drift Chassis, the Vacula II comes with RWD in mind. This car has been uniquely designed by Weld Overdose for better suspension characteristics.This is a high-end Overdose chassis and made specifically for RWD RC drifting. This is a cultivation of everything Overdose has learned from their previously designed chassis and option parts. The front unit adopts a bulkhead designed exclusively for RWD RC Drifting. Weld Overdose adopted an upper arm mount with a right and left integral structure, the mounting rigidity of the upper arm is greatly improved. It firmly supports the front tire of RWD of complex movement.The steering unit adopts a slide rack used in the Overdose XEX spec R, the Vacula II also comes with the same suspension arm & knuckle, it can cope with the large steering angle. It is set to the optimum cutting angle and Ackermann ratio for RWD. Newly announced from Weld Overdose comes the Overdose Vacula RC Drift chassis! This new chassis from Overdose will be available in Purple and Red. Check your bank account, as it will have a MSRP around $750 USD.

$750 isn't bad considering how much damage to your bank account the XEX spec.R + carbon conversion would run you. This seems to have quite a few of the aluminum upgrades that you would have to buy seperately.

That's a pretty good deal, considering the normal price of Overdose.

Obviously the quality is a bit better and as we all know Overdose is the Rolls Royce of the RC drift world but is it me or does this not resemble the D4....like A LOT?!

The Vacula was initially released in 2013 and the initial AWD release demonstrates a lot of the Tamiya TA06's influence. Overdose released some very nice aftermarket for the TA06 and the mid-rear motor w/ gear drive also shows up in the XEX. The Sakura D4 was released in 2015.

There is indeed some resemblance, but I don't think it is in the direction you are insinuating.

Red, along with the OverdoseXAccuvance 9.5t motor. However, I need to put together a gold screw kit for it before I start building it.
