A limited colour version has appeared in the drift car “MD 1.0”, which is advanced and innovative, and gathers the best performance considered by Yokomo. A high-end machine that incorporates functions and structures for drift driving. From the driveline to the suspension, it embodies the needs of drift experts.
This is the first graphite suspension arm to be used in a drift car. The MD 1.0 is an iconic suspension that continues the concept of a racing machine, and by making it even more suspended, it creates a huge advantage for drift cars. Although it has a simple shape, the suspension alignment setting increases the degree of freedom, and the vehicle width, skid angle, roll center, etc. can be set up freely.
The drive system is a high-precision design that is held by an aluminum bulkhead. The kit comes standard with an anti-torque 4-gear transmission, but by adding a differential height adjustment for 3 gears and recombining it, it can be used with a positive torque specification, and the traction balance can be set according to the driving style.
With a slim and simple appearance, but a generous pocket that can be used in any setting, the MD 1.0 is a racing drift machine. Of course, from the chassis rigidity balance to the design, it is the ultimate gem designed for the most discerning drift expert.

The steering block and lower rod are the same parts as before. It is possible to reproduce the highly reliable Ackermann ratio.
A vertical upper deck is used to bring out the softness of the roll while increasing the pitching rigidity.
The slide rack area is significantly lighter than before. The integrated bulkhead and base make a small slide rack with 3-bearing support, which greatly contributes to weight reduction around the front.
The front and rear suspension arms are based on 5mm thick graphite. Compared to resin, it is resistant to temperature changes and can maintain rigidity regardless of the season. In addition, there is also the effect of the gull arm due to the pivot position of the suspension arm and damper, and the movement of the suspension is soft and it is possible to roll smoothly.
The battery is designed exclusively for short Li-po. It is mounted on the rear end of the chassis with a simple holder. A vertical battery holder is also on sale as a separate option.
A 4-gear transmission that makes the most of the anti-torque of the motor is adopted as standard. By preparing a separate differential height adjuster for 3 gears, it can also be used as a positive torque specification for 3 gears.
The rear body mount plate is installed flat, and the magnet-type body mount is also easy to attach.
A graphite rear ESC mount is also standard. It is also a part that increases the rigidity of the rear bulkhead, and is installed between the shock towers to reduce the overhang weight as much as possible.
The suspension arm is mounted suspended from the bulkhead to maximize the lowering of the roll center. It is also possible to change the vehicle width, adjust the skid angle, and adjust the angle of the damper.
Simply remove the cap at the bottom of the rear bulkhead to access the differential. Designed to improve work efficiency even when replacing gear differentials and maintaining ball differentials. The aluminum adapter that holds the differential can be changed to change the height of the differential and adjust the rear traction.
