All the makings of a winning platform…enter the all-new Yokomo Master Speed BD12 competition touring car kit.
The high-performance BD11, which has impressed the world’s top drivers, has evolved further and many new parts have been designed while inheriting the characteristic parts such as the ATF active top deck flex and the 5mm thick carbon suspension arms. A key update is the lower center of gravity built into the BD12.
The motor mount is equipped with a graphite plate that further enhances pitching rigidity. The structure also serves as a means to keep the battery from sliding into the pinion/spur assembly and Yokomo plans to release a brass version as an option.
Although the front hub carrier has the same alignment as before, it has a different shape so that it can be installed with a body stiffener. This prevents interference between tires and fenders when downforce is applied, preventing stalls and other issues.
The BD12 main chassis has a shallower dish than before and the thickness around the screws has been increased for enhanced durability. The spacer for adjusting the height of the suspension mount also uses a large diameter type to diffuse the stress in a crash and prevent damage to the main chassis.
In addition, by moving the motor closer to the center of the chassis, mass is concentrated, pitching motion is reduced, and stability during acceleration and deceleration is enhanced.
