Our flagship AWD drift chassis the YD-4 achieved its first victory at the D1:10 World Championships in Holland 2015, proving its amazing capability on any type of surface or track layout. It has continued to dominate at events around the world since its release last year. However, we recognize the variety of drifting styles and skills that are required for different size and different characteristics of each track and your specific needs. The YD-4MR was developed using feedback from some of the world best drivers and allows you to drive a mid-motor option of the original YD-4. The YD-4MR will be available in a full kit or as an optional extra upgrade package for existing YD-4 owners. The mid mount motor gives different weight transfer characteristics still with the LCG design in mind. It also improves the high speed snap/transition on high grip surfaces such as carpet. Compared to the standard layout of the YD-4 which has excellent stability and high traction as standard. Designed for competition-minded drifters the YD-4 and YD-4MR. Our high quality carbon fiber is still used throughout the chassis, upper deck and shock towers just as the original YD-4. The YD-4 series is a proven winner and now the mid motor option will allow this to continue pushing the boundaries of RC drift competition.

Ronald Volker has finally got the World title he so desperately chased for the last number of years. Widely recognised as the one world’s best touring car driver as he reigned over the highly competitive Euro Touring Series for five consecutive seasons, the Electric Touring Car World Championship have eluded him and his long time Yokomo engineer Yukijiro Umino, but that all changed in a dramatic closing A-Main in Beijing this evening. With Top Qualifier and A1 winner Bruno Coelho favourite to lift the title despite handing Volker a win with a mistake in A2, a change in track conditions would catch out the Xray driver. Losing the rear of his car early in the opening lap and jumping the curbing, Volker would go to the front only to get hit by Coelho in the chicane bunching up the field and making for a dramatic couple of laps. With Volker somehow getting back the lead he lost corners earlier as Coelho and Marc Rheinard came together, once in front he never looked back as further carnage gave him an unassailable lead. Of the carnage the biggest benefactor would be Viktor Wilck, finishing 2nd in A3, he would take a surprise first Worlds podium finish getting third behind Coelho.
