Yokomo S13 street version body

This is my simplest, yet longest bodyshell  to be ready. Just a street version, no big wings just plain street car image i would do if i own a S13. :) 
I'm competing in this month Yokomo International Drift Meet: Mr. Bagi Special Round in Malaysia. Excited to meet Bagi and the current YIDM World Champion Takahiro Kawakami. 
My team Gaijin Brothers will be there with purple S13, Onevia and 180sx. Apart from individual category, We also competing in the team tandem category, lack of practice together worries us a bit but we'll keep the fun parts ahead of everything. Here are some photos taken today. Sorry for the image quality, just an old iPhone 4s ��







Thank you for viewing

Yokomo DPM Centre One-Way/solid for all gears!

I really love DPM ��. 
The only thing I haven't try is using gear diff and centre one way for DPM. Since Yokomo don't release it after more than a year released, I customised it for local events. The centre one-way is not legal for Yatabe Arena �� - Gaijin Brothers Spec ��


Options: solid shaft using DP original parts or custom centre one-way :)

New weight distributions: Yokomo DPM SPL version 2 for 2014 (twin servo)


Just finished the measurements, with the same top motor, twin servo, i've moved it to F50:R50 weight distributions for the chassis, with JZX 100 body F48:R52 ratio. Compare to top mount rear motor it was F58:R42 chassis ratio and was F60:R40 ratio ��. I love DPM so much!

Yokomo Shock Absorber Servicing


It was almost a year i did not use all 4 shocks. Front were fixed with TN racing "L" and rear still maintaining shock system with seesaw linkage.  I like it, thanks to people like Bagi and Riku and many brave people who try everything. 
I don't want to say much, most every rc drifter knows this. Just sharing what is important to me when servicing or tuning my shocks. Here are some of thr tools i use. 

It is recommended to use Green Slime with new sets of O'rings. I still have thr blue Yokomo rings, thr best still kyosho's x grooved o'rings. 


I use cotton buds if the shock is too dirty. 


I use 500-200 range as it is easier to vacuum. 


Not many people use Yokomo Aeration Caps like me. I like so much. Easier to set rebounds and even zero rebound. 
To have more rebounds extend the shock and tightened the small bleed screw. 

To do almost zero rebound, i use camber adjuster to give a small gap, compress the shock and hold it. Tighten thr bleed screw and finish. 


After extending the shocks it will give you as what we want. So what do i want? What do you want? :)



Sometimes, i select my springs, shock positions for hours at home. What i want is hitting the track and drift! - I like to have more drift time than sitting at table setting the car. The longer you tune your car, everything we do, we always know exactly it will behave ��
