Team YOKOMO Aluminum Chassis for BD7-2015


Team YOKOMO has announced the aluminum chassis for the new BD7-2015.  It is targeted at settings for high grip tracks like carpet and high traction tarmac tracks.  It is also a good tuning tool to neutralize the handling on low grip surface.

Part No: B7-00215A

Official announcement from Team YOKOMO

"Yokomo is introducing a new aluminum chassis for the World Championship winning Yokomo BD7 2015. Optimized for high-grip surfaces such as carpet, the new aluminum chassis effectively prevents traction rolls caused by over-grip and edgy tires, and also lowers the center-of-gravity to allow higher speed negotiations around corners, giving an edge that’s needed to reduce lap times, and stability needed to overtake competitors more reliably.

The competitive advantage of the aluminum chassis was demonstrated when it was used by Team Yokomo drivers in the final round of the Asian On-road Championship held on the carpet on-road track at Yatabe Arena, leading to an impressive result where the A-main was dominated by 7 drivers with BD7 2015s, with Ronald Volker taking the top spot. 

Furthermore, during the opening round of this year’s Euro Touring Series, once again, Ronald Volker was able to get 1st place with his BD7 2015 equipped with the new aluminum chassis.

The new aluminum chassis for the BD7 2015 is becoming a “must have” item for racing on carpet. Not only is the aluminum chassis highly functional and becoming an essential item when racing on high-grip surfaces, the attention to aesthetics has not been ignored. 

The aluminum chassis is black hard-anodized with chamfered edges to match the luxurious look of the BD7 2015 Black Series."

YOKOMO new 2WD buggy: YZ-2

Yokomo YZ-2   : 1/10th-scale EP 2WD Offroad Competition Kit

Yokomo is introducing the all-new YZ-2, a state-of-the-art 1/10th-scale EP 2WD offroad competition mid-motor chassis kit, engineered from the ground-up for today’s racing environment and designed to deliver leading-edge developments to offroad enthusiasts, all while offering a luxurious feel by featuring black-anodized aluminum parts with chamfered edges for select components.

Part No.: B-YZ2

In recent days, offroad racing has seen a shift toward high-grip surfaces; use of astro, carpet and even high-grip dirt has become more and more prevalent. Last year’s World Championships was held on a dirt track where the surface was covered with sugar water to increase the grip. With these developments in the offroad racing scene, the YZ-2 was designed from the ground-up to perform its best in today’s high-speed, high-grip race tracks. By employing a super-low center-of-gravity motor mount and gearbox, the YZ-2 has realized an unprecedented weight balance never seen before in offroad racing cars, resulting in dramatically reduction of traction rolls on high-grip surfaces, and improved overall stability of the car. An innovative steering design where the wiper swing action is directed toward the rear of the car affords a more direct steering response compared to conventional designs. The hard-coated, low-friction anodized aluminum cylinders leads to smoother shock absorbing movements which allows better driving characteristics. Also, quick alignment adjustments can be made without the need of optional parts by replacing the bushings of the front hub carrier and rear suspension mounts, a quality that can be an advantage in adapting quickly to various track conditions. Everything about the Yokomo YZ-2 has been designed to provide an advantage for racers in today’s offroad racing scene.
