2012 Drift Chassis Releases Empty

I haven’t been active in the drift scene In terms of whats new and whats hot for chassis kits but since our admin Jay is a certified addict and has been sending me crazy links of the new chassis set ups from manufacturers new to my ears …..

I just felt it as appropriate to have a thread dedicated to the new chassis kits which were recently released …..

Pics, specifications and links would also help a lot

Thanks in advance

let me start it off with the Yokomo DIB

The new DIB in-line battery position allows for greater chassis maneuverability and unparalleled weight balance. The combination of SSG chassis and new FRP bulkheads have been designed with performance in mind. The new chassis is now more slender than the traditional DRB. The main chassis design shares some features from the recently introduced High Traction design, which will give it better handling characteristics.

The new midship motor position has also been moved forward to accommodate the in-line battery positioning. The steering assembly has been optimized so that it will have allowable Ackerman adjustment, or parallel steering geometry. The new chassis is also compatible with the short-size lightweight LiPo battery that were recently introduced by Yokomo. New counter-steer FCD kits will also be available for this chassis. Everything about this chassis has been carefully designed with RC Drift performance in mind.

then there's Tamiya VDF 2

The new TA05 VDF2 has been improved over the original VDF. It has essentially been redesigned to fit the modern RC Drift standards. Now with a 2.5mm main chassis, they look to optimize the mechanical traction and roll characteristics of the chassis. The steering assembly has been redesigned, so now it will be adjustable for Ackerman and overall steering angle. The motor mount has been drastically redesigned, it is now located farther up the front of the chassis. There is also an addition of a third belt, we suspect it is similar to the R31 style intermediate belt. Unfortunately this is does not come countersteer CS ready, it will be a 50/50 setup running (37T/18T).

that's it for now.. will add more later.. (Sakura Drift Sport, Max speed MS-01D & FS-01D, Street Jam OTA-Zeon Mark III....)

The FS-01D now offers the user more options when it comes to mechanical chassis traction. Several additional silver carbon components are integrated for chassis rigidity adjustment. The new FS-01D silver chassis has been designed with high traction in mind. Manufactured to approximately 2.0mm with several cut-outs to promote greater flex characteristics. The most noticeable being the side wings and the W shaped piece in front of the rear tensioner. These pieces can be adjusted by screws to create more or less chassis flex. Which is a benefit for the more technical RC Drifters out there.

that's the type C... no more c hubs for front and easy adjustment for rear toe...
they have a conversion kit for this also but it's quite expensive.
man, i knew about this since last year, wanted to buy the conversion but having thoughts because it's expensive.

@jay, have you seen this? (Active Hobby front midship conversion kit VER.2)
2012 Drift Chassis Releases DSC_7377111

there's a much simpler & cheaper conversion, the ver.1. which retains the tub chassis..

Yup I know the type c exists but I didnt know it was like that lol Now I'm tempted to go back to drift package.. around 400 usd ouch! very happy

The active hobby front conversion yes but not that much interested.. cf chassis with the blings ok but Im more interested with the wrap up conversion.. rear wheel drive!!!

If it goes well on yours Ill be going back for sure very happy

well i guess we just need to wait for the wrap up's release of the 2wd conversion.
if it's too expensive i might as well do my own DIY for the Active's conversion...

The MST chassis looks promising. I dont see the spur as being much of an issue though .....

Open or cut the hood for the spur to come out ..... More like a table band saw! Hehehe

Seriously though, i feel that most of the upcoming manufacturers still find the front motor set up as the ideal drift set up .... The TA03f still stands as a pinnacle to be replicated ...

But honestly, ithink if you do cs .... The tendency to spin out is way higher due to the weight bias upfront .... Although with the multiple battery placement set ups the MST has .... Things really look promising

I heard jdrift has one .... Id like to see it in person (jon come down dubai and slide with us).... How much dineros does it cost?
