Press Release from RDRP:
Revolution Design Racing Products YZ-4 SF Aluminium Steering Plate
Made for Yokomo's popular YZ-4 SF 1/10th 4WD off-road buggy is the Aluminium Steering Plate from Revolution Design Racing Products. It is machined from high-quality 7075-T6 aluminium and replaces the standard carbon fibre part with the alloy plate improving stability and steering precision. In addition the updated design does away with the kit's sloppy bushing and shim construction in favour of highly precise ball bearings which results in less play, more precision, an overall improved steering feeling and virtually no wear. The steering plate comes black anodised to match the remainder of the buggy's alloy parts.
Revolution Design Racing Products YZ-4 SF Aluminium Bellcrank Set
Coming from Revolution Design Racing Products is their new aluminium steering bellcrank set for the Yokomo YZ-4 SF 1/10th 4WD buggy. The set is a direct replacement for the standard composite parts, machined from aircraft-grade 7075-T6 aluminium and it comes black anodised and with machined silver edge details. Using the alloy steering bellcranks over the standard parts adds much needed precision to the steering system while also greatly improving overall durability. The increased overall rigidity will also help with steering emphasis, enhancing the steering feeling especially in high-bite track conditions such as carpet and astro turf.
