Based off of the “dirt specific” YZ-2DT, the kit however utilises a laydown transmission as found in the carpet kit to better suit today’s high-grip dirt tracks. Additionally the DTM comes with a new rear shock tower brace, it features height adjustable rear hub carriers with fine 0.5mm increments, and it comes with new high-grip specific steering hub carriers. The kit is rounded out by updated ball ends for smoother and more reliable operation and it includes a JConcepts S2 bodyshell and Aero rear wing. The kit will become available by beginning of April.
Also new and made for the above YZ-2DTM is a stand-up gearbox conversion. It includes all needed parts to convert the kit into stand-up gearbox configuration that is better suited for all low to medium-bite tracks while also allowing to run higher roll-centre settings. The kit includes a new gearbox, motor mount plate, rear shock tower, waterfall, wing mounts and battery mounting plate.
The system utilises a tie-rod brace that runs along the centre of the chassis, connecting the 1-piece servo mount and the updated motor mount bulkhead for reduced chassis pitch and increased forward traction. In addition to stiffening the chassis in longitudinal direction the set will also allow to take influence on the top deck’s flex characteristics with an additional mounting point.
The vehicle is based on a composite main chassis with composite top deck with the flexible design improving traction and side bite while the sealed 4-gear transmission with gear differential ensures a smooth power supply. Other features include a newly designed H-shaped steering system with aluminium centre link for a nimble handling, the kit includes threaded high-performance shock absorbers, an aluminium motor plate and an adjustable battery mount that can accommodate standard and shorty LiPo battery packs.
