Yokomo MR4-DK
#1
I got myself a plastic drift package a while ago and was amazed how well it handles 2wd. - So I went a step ahead and bought an old MR4-TC SD carbon conversion, since I don ´t really like the fancy Imadoki shapes of the chassis plate.

Main reason for the conversion was to be more flexible with the weight distribution compared to the plastic tub chassis. And it handles really well with the center battery position and all the electronics just in front of the rear axle.

It ´s still work in progress, since some essential parts for the steering and suspension are still on their way from Japan though.

Compared to the plastic chassis the DP is now much more precise and during the last session tandem runs with CS and RWD chassis were possible.
Action! - With DMC.

Liking this new chassis setup. Interesting placement of the battery. I take it no weights up front and rear heavy setup? I've been loving the rear heavy setup, but still need to run my front motor chassis to feel differences.

I also put 70 gram of weight into the front diff housing.
Weight distribution is pretty much 50/50, with a slight rear bias.

Since I was almost exclusively running the drift package lately, I thought it is time for a little upgrade. :D

At first I was a bit doubtful about the heavy angle at the end of the arms, but even with the extension for more steering throw they give a great geometry on that chassis. - It´s all a matter of finding the sweet spot though. The Wrap Up Next and RC926 steering I used before on this chassis worked just the same way, only needed different turnbuckle lengths.
