New Yokomo Charger in stock now

Battery Charge/Discharge Profiles
YZ-114PLUS can store up to 10 profiles for either charging or discharging in memory.

Terminal Voltage Control (TVC)
Expert users can set the end voltage for the charge process.

Internal Lithium Battery Balancer
YZ-114PLUS comes equipped with an individual-cell voltage balancer. Using an external balancer
for balance charging is not necessary.

Support for Balance Discharging
YZ-114PLUS can monitor and balance the voltage of each cell individually during the discharging
process. A safety feature will automatically stop the discharge process if any of the cells exhibits an abnormal voltage.

Support for Multiple Types of Lithium Batteries
YZ-114PLUS supports various lithium batteries including LiPo, LiIon, and LiFe.

Standard Equipped with LiHV Mode
YZ-114PLUS supports "LiHV" batteries; the new generation of LiPo batteries which have an end
charge voltage of 4.35 V.

Fast Charge and Storage Charge Modes for Lithium Batteries
YZ-114PLUS comes equipped with a Fast Charge mode to reduce charging times for batteries which
support fast charging. In addition, a Storage mode is available to adjust the final voltage of the battery to
an optimal level to extend the useful life of the battery while being stored.

Re-peak Mode for NiMH and NiCd Batteries
In re-peak mode, the charge will perform a peak charge on the battery 1 to 3 times in a row automatically.
This mode can be used to ensure that a battery will be fully charged.

Adjustable Delta-peak Sensitivity for NiMH and NiCd Batteries
YZ-114PLUS contains an automatic charging termination feature based on the delta-peak voltage detection principle.
When the battery's voltage exceeds the user adjustable threshold, the charging process will be automatically stopped.

Cycling Charge and Discharge Processes
YZ-114PLUS is equipped with automatic cyclic charge and discharge mode which can be performed 1 to 5 times in a row.
This process can be performed to refresh and balance the battery in order to stimulate its activity.

Automatic Charging Current Limit
With YZ-114PLUS, it is possible to set the maximum charging current for NiMH and NiCd batteries. This is useful for
charging NiMH batteries with low internal resistance and capacity while using the "AUTO" charging mode.

LiPo Battery Meter
YZ-114PLUS contains a battery meter that can be used to check the battery's total voltage, along with the highest and
lowest voltage along with the voltage of each of the individual cells.

Battery Internal Resistance Meter
YZ-114PLUS contains a battery internal resistance meter that can be used to check the battery's total internal resistance,
along with the internal resistance of each of the cells.

Charge Capacity Limit
An user-adjustable charge capacity limit can be set to automatically terminate the charge process when the set charge
capacity is reached.

Temperature Limit
Batteries warm up while charging and discharging. By using this feature, if the battery heats up to a set temperature
the process will be stopped. Note: Optional temperature sensor (Part No. YZ-114P-2) is required to use this feature.

Processing Time Limit
Using this feature, when the charge or discharge process takes longer than the set time, the process will be
automatically stopped.

New Suspension Block for BD-7 series

Yokomo have released a new option part for the BD7 - 2016. A new aliminium suspension block for the front rear that the team have had considerable success with at recent events, AOC, ETS and the DHI cup last week. The team have advised the new block has increased steering response as well as changed the flex charachteristics and improved corner speed. The block will be suitable for medium to high traction surfaces.

Product code : B7-3127FR
Product name : Aluminum Front Suspension Mount for BD7 (FR 42.7mm)

Product code : B7-3135FR
Product name : Aluminum Front Suspension Mount for BD7 (Rear side 43.5mm)

Team YOKOMO YD-4 details

Part No: DP-YD4
Release date: end January 2016

Team YOKOMO has shared more information on the upcoming YD-4. A new high performance drift machine that offers superb performance without hop-ups.

 In Team YOKOMO's own description: "Stylish" driving style requires the chassis to be controllable under all conditions. Tanso (Single/Solo) runs that are performed at your near limits and Tsuiso (Tandem/Battle) runs where you aim to match your opponent all require you to put your machine under your control, which becomes a key point in improved performance, says R&D chief and Team Yokomo Drift Leader Matsuzaki Hayato. Placing the center of mass low, and towards the center of the chassis allows for quick initiations and drift angle stability, while the drift specific suspension and steering rack (Steel Construction) allows for more line tracing freedom.

The extra wide nerf wing is a First for YOKOMO.

The front suspension utilizes a rigid ‘H’ arm. It increases steering response and line trace accuracy, preferred by expert drivers. Standard ‘H’ arm type suspension tends to have steering angle limitations and clearance issues compared to an ‘I’ arm. The YD-4 resolves this issue with an exclusive suspension arm that has a compact hub carrier. Its 55 degree maximum steering angle is the highest in its class.

The steering block is a narrow scrub type to achieve neutral steering feel. The block also has enabled movement close to that of an actual car to achieve a more realistic drifting style.

The slide steering rack system, capable of precise Ackermann geometry while holding a large steering angle, is precision made steel construction, supported by bearings on eccentric posts for fine clearance adjustments and limits wheel play to a minimum while steering.

 By gathering most of the mass towards the center of the chassis, excess momentum while pivoting is reduced. This allows for sharp drift initiations and transitions, while maintaining high stability and control-ability in a drift. In addition to the pictured shorty LiPo, A simple change of the battery holder location allows for use of a standard size LiPo (Square/Round).

Although it uses gears common to the Drift Package series in the front and rear, the gear cases have been redesigned to allow the center of mass to be dropped by 2mm. (When compared to the DP) The shock tower also sits lower but the new body post design allows for the rear shocks to be mounted vertically. The shock spring retainers are also redesigned to allow for long springs. A sharp yet supple driving style is achievable.

Key Features
■High precision carbon double deck chassis
■High mobility due to a low center of mass construction
■Fully enclosed gear box shaft drive 4wd
■Centrally location mass to improve performance
■Highly rigid front and rear H arms that retain high steering angle
■Optimized steering and Ackermann with a steel slide rack system standard
■Front KPI narrow scrub knuckle
■High precision 4mm carbon shock towers
■Standard and short size LiPo compatibility

Designed by the talented Matsuzaki Hayato.

Pre-order is opened now. Please contact us for more details.
