From Team Yokomo:
Introducing the YD-2ZS, which makes the most of acceleration traction with 4 gears!
Based on the YD-2Z chassis, a new machine equipped with a gearbox for the S series of 4-gear transmissions that can use the rotation of the motor in the opposite torque direction will be released.
Until now, the 3-gear transmission had major advantages such as the feeling of ground contact at the front and the acceleration response, but there were many requests for the 4-gear transmission, which had been well received for some time. Especially in situations where the grip is low, the “motor anti-torque” that exerts a force in the direction of pushing down the rear when accelerating will be a great advantage for drivers who are accustomed to using 4 gears.
The YD-2ZS has a gear case mounted by specially designing the upper deck adapter. Since the base chassis is YD-2Z, it is a nice place to install a standard size battery such as a straight pack. As a matter of course, details such as Φ4.8mm pillow ball and drift spring have been upgraded to the latest specifications.
When the throttle is turned on, the force is applied in the direction of pushing down the rear, making it easier to obtain traction during acceleration. Of course, there is a trade-off with the setting, but it will be a great weapon on low grip road surfaces.
The front area is the same as the previous Z series. Highly reliable steering configuration. We are upgrading to the latest specifications with Φ4.8mm pillow balls and drift springs.
Previously, the S series was exclusively for short Li-po batteries, but the ZS can now be equipped with standard size straight pack batteries. With more battery options, it is easy to recommend to beginners and intermediate users.
