What did u do to your drifter today!
Honestly, while I've seen pictures of the chassis, I can't say I'm extremely excited, though it might be because I just got finished building and then converting the YD-4. The YD-2 seems to have a lot going for it in terms of being a purpose-RWD chassis and I might get the RS/Plastic version for parking lot fun, but I would like to finish my Nervis 2.0 and maybe build a XEX RWD first as I haven't owned or worked on an Overdose chassis.

Bought 3 new bodies to my XXX-D Vip cs, RMX-D Vip rwd and my YD-2 rwd - Still haven't decided what color to paint, but the Crown is going on my CS car and either BMW or the BR-Z is going on either rwd cars - all with stealth mounts so i can switch for my choosing:

I bought 100-count batches of M3 stainless steel button-head and flat-head socket screws in the most common sizes from McMaster-Carr.

Converted my DP to RWD. Hopefully get a chance to give it a run tomorrow or even tonight.

Nice! - Give it a bit more toe in, getting the Ackermann closer to parallel. Looking at it, you might want to use the most forward holes on the steering wipers for a better geometry. The steering is the essential part, if you get that right the drift package will perform brilliantly. - Have fun testing.

Ended up changing to different knuckles and got longer turnbuckles etc. Still testing and tuning. Loving it though, should of went to RWD a long time ago.

That looks like perfect steering geometry. - The DP is actually one of the best RWD chassis there is in my opinion.
