DRIFT PACKAGE MR-4TC SD CM CHASSIS with NISSAN 180SX STREET VERSION


What is drifting? Imagine entering a tight corner at a speed normally reserved for crusing only on freeways. As the vehicle loses it's ability to adhere to the ground, you flick the steering wheel, sliding the tail out. Smoothly applying throttle and countersteer, your vechicle tightly clips the apex of the corner in a controlled sliding motion, while maintaining speed throughout the corner for a fast exit to the next corner. While almost impossible to perform by most drivers, experienced "drift" experts can slide highly modified cars with high horsepower engines and aggressive aero packages around almost any corner in a controlled fashion. In Japan, this display of controlled tail sliding had originated as a dangerous street sport, gradually envolving into a competitive sport held only on special tracks. While "drift" competitions are rare outside of Japan, it is rapidly gaining exposure and popularity.


Our new "Drift Package" has captured the essence of "drifting" in a radio controlled model that can be easily and saftely enjoyed. All of the essential features of a "drift" car, from the aggressively styled body kits to the polished exhaust mufflers were scaled down and produced in model form. Special tires to provide superior drift performance were developed, and mated to our championship winning chassis that can easily be converted to the full race trim with a set of racing tires.


Featuring a fully adjustable suspension and a wide selection of optional tuning parts, this chassis can be easily modified for that personalized look.


The chassis features our newly developed molded design for durability, and a highly efficient shaft drive 4WD system for smooth, fast operation.




One of the desired features of the 180SX retractable headlights have also been included. In addition to the fully open and closed looks, the half-open looks has also been included for die-hard drift fans.




Kit includes new and old style rear taillight decals.





Based off the JMRCA National Championship winning MR-4TC SD chassis, the superior handling characteristics of this newly developed chassis allows for superior drift performance.

LOL... I was going to ask where the pics of the cars were... it took me a while to find them (the cars that is).


Personally I'd like to see some more models from that show.... cars of course.

Was only one of very few pix to be found of the S15 outside of a kitbox, I'm afraid.



Seems that YokomoUSA had a big stand at the recent RCX 2004 expo; the lass on the right is "Becky" who's been their RCX figurehead since 2003 and you'll see her in every issue of RC Car Action magazine.


Where they get their dress sense (or lack thereof) I have no idea.

No sign of them yet, nor spare tyres/rings.


Chances are Yokomo either can't keep up with the demand, or they're not issuing the spares (wonder why??) until they've sold "enough" Drift kits.
